* Disclaimer. Cheesy Cannes jokes are always necessary.

As you all know, I love runway shows but sometimes the red carpet is just more fun because it leaves you guessing who’s wearing what. After pinning all the Cannes events last week I was surprised to see that some of the designers/actresses that kept wowing me were not the designers/actresses I usually love. For me, Roberto Cavalli and Nicole Kidman were the clear winners this year. And this definitely surprised me. Typically Cavalli is too flashy for me and Nicole Kidman is very far from being my favorite actress (beauty-wise or movie-wise). Does that happen to you, too?
