cannes

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was filled with sunshine and babies and my first post natal attempt at running (EEK. NOT EASY.) There weren't really any WORSTS at this years Cannes film festival. Don't you feel like celebs always screw up at award shows but then when it comes to Cannes they whip out these amazing dresses? Where were these gowns three months ago!! I think the celebs always look stressed at the Oscars, and maybe even nervous and trying too hard at the Met Ball, but at Cannes, they look happy and vacation-y. Maybe its the positive vibes of Cannes that give them the … [Read more...]
