Festival De Cannes 2012 | The 65th Cannes Film Festival

As you all know Cannes Film Festival is the world's most prestigious and publicized film festival and one of the most anticipated fashion events during the year, everything about it is so glamorous and romantic starting from the location and ending at the joint events and its a personal favorite!This year is no different of course..Some of my last year's best dressed didn't do quite well this year at lest not at the beginning this is why I decided to give it a couple of days before deciding who is my favorite, Lets start...

My best dress of the opening night went to Eva Herzigova in Dolce & Gabbana. The dress was simply prefect and wearing The Chopard diamond necklace made in honor of the film festival's 'face', Marilyn Monroe, with her hair do made it "The Ultimate Glamorous Look"..

Eva made it to the top of the list but not just at the opening ceremony but during the event in general. The L'Oreal ambassador lived for her title and looked nothing less then stunning day & night. Although men fashion doesn't get enough coverage as much as I would like in Film Festivals there was some men who made it to the Treَ-Chic list Ewan McGregor, Bruce Willis, Korean actor Kwon Sang-woo and of course Jean Paul Gaultier were the only men to caught my eyes.

Ewan McGregor looked extra handsome in his Marni suit during the day and completed the look with a "to die for" shoes, a beautiful tie and sunglasses, and at night looked so sharp and chic in a tuxedo...BRAVO!

Jean Paul Guiltier

Fan Bin Bing was one of my favorites last year and this year she is also doing great, in fact she seems to insists on wearing a semi traditional gowns each and every year, for this year's opening ceremony she wore an embroidered Christopher Bu strapless gown(1) with emerald Chopard jewels and a green-and-gold Elie Saab clutch, and for the  L’Oreal Paris 15th Anniversary dinner  she wore a beautiful Valentino couture(2) which looked absloutly wonderful, and my personal favorite look was her Elie Saab dress(3) it was diffidently a showstopper!

Naomi Watts made a great appearance in a Marchesa gown and paired it with a Chopard white diamond collar necklace & a pair of white diamond drop earrings, she proves that all what you need is one time to make a fashion statement...WOW! 

Age is just a number if you're Jane Fonda. The 74 year actor looked smoking hot in all of her red carpet looks making hard for the young actress to compete! wither its Versace(1), a Reberto Cavalli(2) or a Stella McCartney(3), there is nothing that she can't pull off!

Met Gala 2012 - Who I Liked

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s event or Met Gala is the "IT" event of the fashion year, last year's best dressed obviously made it this year too! I'm sooo in love with the dresses worn by Rihanna, Camilla Bell and Karolina Kurokva and Tom Ford is just heaven! I prefer to skip the talk about him & his fashion sense because I'll lose my credibility as a professional, I also like Prabal Gurung's look he's on my best list forever..Now, I will leave you guys to enjoy the rest of the photos and if you don't know the names of these people already "SHAME" on you and Click Here

Loud Art AL-Khobar - Desert Designs & NTI Co.

I had the pleasure of attending the opening night of a show that is probably one of the most ground breaking art shows of my life, it was a small show room but with a bigger impact and substance than any art pieces that were at bigger halls, the walls/floors were stacked with paintings, graphics and graffiti that were all made in KSA &  neighboring Bahrain.The power plus the beauty of our generation's imagination is a force that can melt borders and years of misunderstanding. They are a youth that has worked on creating positive & constructive ideas through visually artistic materials, that is the proper way to deal with anything really..We congratulate Desert Designs & their partners for this event NTI.Co on this bold step into what seems as a gateway to a brighter future for the upcoming talents in the Kingdom's arts & fashion industry, thank you to the whole team who made this show possible and special thanks to Raneen Bukhari & Najla Al-Suhimi for welcoming me and having this idea that brought these great young minds all together in one place, you made it into a reality that they could share with the rest of us, hopefully this isn't gonna be the last time we see this kind of events.The show ends on May 11th so if you are in Al-Khobar make a quick trip to Desert Design and enjoy it while you can!
