The Luxury Closet Fashion Panel Take Cannes Film Festival

So many gowns. So much glam. As the L’Oreal Paris ambassadors step out in style, it would almost be rude not to have a fully fledged Fashion Police-esque rendezvous a la Festival de Cannes – that’s Cannes Film Festival to the rest of us! So without further ado, let’s meet The Luxury Closet’s judging panel…

Naomi Watts

Opening Ceremony &

Caroline: I think this Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture gown was a perfect choice, it stands out beautifully against the red carpet. I love the simple yet sophistacted hair and make-up, but I wish she didn’t have so many accessories – the earrings and necklace are enough.
Outfit: 5/5
Accessories: 3/5
Hair & Make-up: 4/5

Elisabeth: A princess dress with a plunging neckline is the perfect combination for glamour with a bit of attitude. The mix of feathers and embellished pearls is perfect for such an occasion, but I wish she left that zebra clutch at home, it doesn’t go with the rest of the ensemble!
Outfit: 4/5
Accessories: 2/5
Hair & Make-up: 4/5

Lana: Always reigning as the queen of the red carpet, Naomi Watts’ look was flawless and as elegant as ever. Need I say more?
Outfit: 5/5
Accessories: 4.5/5

Liya Kebede

Caroline: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! She looks like an awkward Christmas decoration! And I think she knows it, her whole posture just says “what am I doing here?”.
Outfit: 1/5
Accessories: 3/5
Hair & Make-up: 3/5

Elisabeth: I have a love/hate relationship with this outfit. I admire the fashion statement she is making, and trying to be unique, but I’m not really convinced on the outcome.
Outfit: 3/5
Accessories: 4/5
Hair & Make-up: 5/5

Lana: The fiery red shade of Kebede’s Proenza Schouler dress from the brand’s Fall 2015 collection was impeccable, but the shimmering cut-out design and grommet-embellished skirt were a little more confusing than they were futuristic.
Outfit: 2/5
Accessories: 5/5
Hair & Makeup: 4/5

Julianne Moore

Opening Ceremony &

Caroline: You can’t go wrong with a classic black dress adorned with feathers and pearls for Cannes. Tres chic! I love that she kept her hair slick and simple, to let the rest of her outfit do the talking.
Outfit: 4/5
Accessories: 5/5
Hair & Make-up: 5/5

Elisabeth: I may have been a little tough, but I don’t really like the overall look! The dress meets jacket type-thing on the top are too much, and instead of looking really glam, she actually looks grandma-like. The Chopard accessories are also too big for such a loud dress – the whole look is just very overpowering.
Outfit: 1/5
Accessories: 1/5
Hair & Make-up: 3/5

Lana: We all love Julianne Moore, but this Armani Privé ensemble was a little of a disappointment. The plunging neckline and classy skirt were taken down a notch with the somewhat messy top.
Outfit: 3/5
Accessories: 4/5
Hair & Makeup: 3.5/5

Karlie Kloss
Karlie-Kloss--2015-Cannes -La-Tete-Haute-Premiere-06

Caroline: She has an amazing body, so she pulls off the Atelier Versace jumpsuit from the Fall 2014 line well. I would have chosen different colour shoes though, and I wish the hair had a bit more oomph to match the attitude of the outfit.
Outfit: 4/5
Accessories: 3/5
Hair & Make-up: 2/3

Elisabeth: She is young with an amazing body, so the outfit suits her perfectly, and the cutout details make the whole outfit super sexy. I love the simple hair and make-up as well, the only thing I can really fault is I would have worn a bangle instead of a ring.
Outfit: 4/5
Accessories: 3/5
Hair & Make-up: 4/5

Lana: In her fabulous shimmering number inspired by contemporary and futuristic designs, Karlie Kloss pulled off a look that only she can! Her simple make-up, stunning hair, and just the right amount of jewelry finished it off to perfection.
Outfit: 4/5
Accessories: 5/5
Hair & Make-up: 5/5
