So Haute!

I was so thrilled to see the photos from the last days of the Cannes Film Festival. This year thus far the attendees have been lackluster. The red carpet had been rolled out, but nothing stimulating or exciting passed through.

Maybe my sentiment was shared by the powers that be because all restraint was lifted for amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS benefit.

A kaleidoscope of colors mixed and mashed with the crimson carpet. Madonna struck a pose in a silk salmon secretary sheath by Stella McCartney. Dita Von Teese sizzled in a flowing ultra violet Gaultier. Milla Jovovich and Mary J. Blige rocked the vibrant reds.
On contrast to the brights, there was a slew of black and whites to be seen. Although the palette was more tonal, it was far from boring.

That being said, Natalie Portman receives my vote for having the most daring, and in turn best dress. The sculptural, white Givenchy Haute Couture confection is a sartorial pleasure to look at. It's all at once chic, sexy and edgy—which is no easy feat.
