Fashion Report: Best of Cannes 2013

After 11 days of fashion delight, the 66th edition of Cannes Film Festival wrapped up last weekend.
With a certain delay, I finally managed to put together my Top 20 from the Red Carpet. By far, Nicole Kidman was my favorite this year and really deserves the Cannes 2013 Best Dressed Award. She succeeded in wowing the public with every single dress she wore, being the most consistent with her looks during the festival. It was really hard to pick a single dress from Nicole's red carpet appearances and I'm not going to forget that amazing Dior gown she wore at "Great Gatsby" premiere, but I really think that the Valentino number was just the perfect match for Nicole's refined figure. 
Take a look at the other 19 fashionable ladies.
 
Zoe Saldana looked like a princess in that beautiful Valentino gown... just perfect! 
I can say that, I pretty much hated all the dresses Milla Jovovich chose for this Cannes edition, but this special Armani piece was the exception. 
When I think of Audrey Tautou I think of charisma and childlike quirky personality, and that translates in the way she dresses- like this stunning Prada gown. I also liked Audrey's Lanvin LBD for it's cool design.
Fan Bingbing was a very elegant and delicate presence on the red carpet. I completely love her fabulous Louis Vuitton gown, although she made a great impression in the yellow Elie Saab dress also.
Freida Pinto is always a stylish lady and knows exactly what kind of outfits work better for her, so I think she managed to steal the spotlight in this silver Sanchita.
Like the perfect diva she is, Dita von Teese impressed in a very classy and elegant retro inspired Elie Saab dress, showing everybody that you can still be sexy without flashing too much skin.
This year, the Asian celebrities were absolutely fabulous on the red carpet and Zhang Yuqi was one of my favorites. In my opinion she deserves the 2nd place on the best dressed list, after Nicole, for being able to look glamorous the entire time at Cannes. My favorite gown was the green Ulyana Sergeenko in which she looked just like a Disney princess. I couldn't forget her other brilliant red carpet choices like the red Alexander McQueen gown, the printed Monique Lhuillier number or the incredible Roberto Cavalli dresses (the pale pink ruffled one and the white siren dress she wore at the AmfAR gala). You should check them out!
Erin Heatherton brought some of the 20's glamour in her silvery Cavalli gown.
Talking about Asian beauties, Zhang Ziyi was eye-catching in that Carolina Herrera gown. I also loved her in that superb pale lilac Elie Saab dress.
Carey Mulligan always has a bold approach when it comes to fashion, but I like her best in this delicate Dior gown she wore at the "Great Gatsby" premiere.
Although her figure changed a lot since her Miss World days, Aishwarya Rai is still absolutely beautiful and I loved her Elie Saab choice on the Cannes red carpet.
Apparently, Roberto Cavalli was the favorite designer this year and just rightly if you look at all his creations. Liu Wen, the first Chinese Victoria's Secret Angel, brought some color on the red carpet with her superb Cavalli choice, while her runway colleague, Alessandra Ambrosio sparkled in another one of Cavalli's dresses.
The brilliant red haired actress Jessica Chastain kept things simple and elegant with her white Versace creation; and who wouldn't like her Elizabeth Taylor sapphire necklace?
Lana del Ray was beautiful as a flower in that superbly embroidered Lena Hoschek gown.
Usually I'm not impressed with Solange's fashion choices, but I kind of like this one. The sexy Stephane Rolland gown reminded me of a summery cropland in the wind.
Another Disney princess was Sonam Kapoor, who wore a flower printed gown by D&G.
Probably one of the sexiest appearances on the red carpet was Joan Smalls, who opted for an Emilio Pucci creation.
Closing my top 20 Cannes Red Carpet is Liya Kebede in a long sleeve sparkly chiffon Roberto Cavalli gown.
