Carey Mullegan is hot off her Oscar nominated role in "An Education" and now she's ready to hit the red-carpet again for "Wall Street 2". After the whole award season frenzy, a lot of people seemed bored or tired of Carey's "charm", although in my opinoin she hasn't lost it a bit. She went the off beat and vintage route and now she's slowly coming back and trying new designers and finding her image with more main-stream trends and silhouettes. First up she chose a RM by Roland Mouret belted dress with a draped top and fitted bottom. I love Carey's shy-ish smile and her cool short hair-do, it'll compliment almost anything she wears just because it's so likeable. The color of the dress is great, understated with a hint of purple to keep it fun. Its silhouette is elegant and business like without losing the fashion aspect and it's formal enough while retaining appropriate amount of youthfulness (honestly, nothing much can age this girl, she can even wear a granny style night gown and still rock it, that's the gift of youth). Kate Beckinsale killed it on the red-carpet again. I know I didn't pick her as one of my favorite on day 1, but her big baby blue poof of Marchesa really wasn't THAT great. But this one, white Gucci Preimier silver embellished gown is much better, in fact, it's a winner! This is the best ensemble of the day! From the well groomed hair to the flawless make-up to this exquisite dress by Frida Giannini, everything works. This dress is much more contained, but not subdued. The silver bow and belt detail wasn't easy to pull off. Of course Kate is helped by God's gift of good proportion and one of the most beautiful face on Earth. I was blown away when I saw this, it was elegant, classy, glamorous, and sweet at the same time. Since she's a judge on the Featured Film panel, I'm expecting to see many other knock outs from her.

Fashion: Favorite looks for Cannes day 2
Michelle Yeoh showed up to the Premier of "Wall Street 2" wearing a custom made Roberto Cavalli gown. It's a pale yellow tiered ruffle fish-tail georgette gown. You can't help but admire the handwork and workmanship of this creation. And although there's a million layers to this dress, the color and the fabric choice combined make Michelle's gown look so delicate it's like a fluffy cotton candy; add on the simple hair, great clutch, bright smile, and this Cannes regular once again shined on the red-carpet.
