Cannes Film Festival 2011 - What to expect?

The Cannes film festival 2011 has officially started.
I must say I'm quite excited, because we are going to see many gorgeous looks on the red carpet by consistantly gorgeous stars such as Fan BingBing, Eva Longoria and Uma Thurman.
As usual, I thought of doing something creative to get into the Cannes spirit. And this year is by choosing categories, or better said trends, which could be chosen by the celebrities.

The Whites

One of the most common trends at events like these is the color trend. Which color is going to be most worn? Since this year's motto is "White is the new black", I think it's pretty safe to say that we are going to see many beautiful white dresses. I'm still waiting for someone to rock that gorgeous feathered Versace dress, which I am sure is going to happen anytime soon. Another favorite of mine is the Saab sweetheart neckline dress. Simply divine.

Long Sleeved Sexiness

We all know that European weather is not at it's best right now - but that actually works in favor of this second trend. Long sleeved gowns have always been perfect for an occasion where you'd like to be appropriate and sexy without showing too much skin. But to spice up things this season, designers did show skin - or dare I say, a whole leg. The thigh-high split was seen at various houses such as Pucci and Elie Saab.

Going Big

But if the first two trends are too subtle for some of the celebrities, there's always the one they can always count on - the bigger the better. Big gowns have always been a classic on the red carpet and they never go out of style. Whether it's Valli's simple designs with a lot of tulle or Dior's draped gowns, there is one thing known for sure - they steal the spotlight like nothing else.

The Risk Taker

And of course there are the risk takers - celebrities that have a hard time wearing something that doesn't stand out in the crowd. Whether it's because of their eccentric style - or lack of it, these people could definitely rock some of the season's wackiest designs. Starting from Givenchy's whole haute couture presentation to Gucci's sheer dresses, a front-page feature in the newspapers is inevitable.
