For decades, every spring film makers, directors, producers, actors, actresses, and the press, to name a few, head to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. The invitation only event hosted the premieres of such movies as Pulp Fiction, E.T., Up, and Inglorious Bastards. Film makers are well aware the impact Cannes can have for a movie, or even a career, so each year the festival is filled with movies hoping to rise to the level of these great movies that came before.

As much as we look forward to what great movie or movies may come from Cannes, we are even more excited to see the red carpet fashion every year.  This year has not disappointed in dresses to talk about.

Here are a few of our favorites so far from this year’s Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

These are just a few of the wonderful looks this year. We can’t wait to see what the next week brings movie and style wise.

Check out Style‘s Cannes Film Festival coverage to see even more great looks.

Its been 10 days since this year’s Met Gala, themed “China: Through the Looking Glass”, and people are still talking about their favorite looks. There were many beautiful and interesting ensembles this year, but one stood out in most people’s minds more frequently than the rest. In fact it stood out so much that it is now on the cover of Vogue‘s special Met Gala issue. That look, of course, is Rihanna’s Guo Pei designed masterpiece. The cape is rumored to weigh 55 pounds, took two years for the designer to hand craft, and required three people to help carry the train. Pei told Vanity Fair Style her thoughts on all the attention her glamorous design garnered, “The focus and the attention paid to this dress will make it remembered by the world—[what] I want is to make them remember. . . . It is my responsibility to let the world know China’s tradition and past, and to give the splendor of China a new expression. I hope that people do know China in this way.”

This is the first time many of us have heard of the Beijing based Couture designer, but she’s been dressing China’s biggest stars for more than 20 years.She was one of the first true designers in China, and is known for elaborate hand crafted works. Most of us may not have been familiar with her name before the Met Gala, however, this is not the first time her work has been front and center on a global stage. Pei also designed ceremonial dresses for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Pei employees more than 400 people each of which is trained by the designer herself. The team hand crafts each exquisite masterpiece, which take hundreds if not thousands of hours to create.

While it may be the first time many of us have heard of Guo Pei, it certainly won’t be the last. She has teamed up with MAC cosmetics for a collaboration they celebrated on May 5.  We know the world will continue to be on the lookout to see what this extraordinary designer comes up with next.

In our line of work we’ve been fortunate to see and develop many grand opening or reopening events. We know how important and difficult it can be to come up with fresh new ideas to make your business’ event stand out. Paris Citadium by Pull and Bear recently pulled this off in a very clever way. They called in four international artists and gave them free reign to decorate vintage VW vans in whatever way they wanted.


Michela Picchi, an Italian cross disciplinary artist, who finds inspiration from collage and psychedelia with her own twist of sophistication added in, came up with this colorful design which she says is really her.


Paris born Shobo Shobo brought his personal universe of half disturbing and half tender figures presented with a touch of pop. He said of the project, “I like improvising with nothing prepared before and I’m also surprised by the result.”cover_2_shoboshobo shoboshobo_1

Martina Paukova added a more vintage twist to her movable masterpiece which was inspired by Palm Springs. Paukova said when she thinks of Palm Springs she thinks of people of leisure, lots of color, and having a good time.cover_3_martinapaukova martinapaukoa_1

Kyle Platts’ work has been featured in Vice and The New York Times. He calls his van “a vehicle version of his sketch book” which he uses to amuse himself. We’re sure he’s work amused many others that saw it as well.

These are all very unique and eye catching. Pull and Bear did a wonderful job finding artist to help their vision come alive. We hope to see more business owners continue to find new and exciting ways to get us buzzing about their stores.

Go here to learn more about the grand re-opening, the artists, and each of their vans.
