Cannes 2013: Vive La France

Vive la France!  Vive la danse de style français!

Cannes may have come and gone, but it has left a lingering trail of French fashion fantasies behind, non?

Marion Cotillard was a vision in white on the last night of the world’s most engaging red carpet.

The Dior dance card at Cannes was full this year. Raf’s reign continued with the leading ladies of France, including Dior spokesperson Cotillard, who represented the House in all its glory.

And while the resident reigning Princess didn’t don Dior for her last night, she still exemplified French chic.

Dior, however, wasn’t far from her thoughts or her frame, when she attended the Resort collection presentation during the same week. She chose a dress from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection (one of my favourites from Raf thus far).

Fittingly, she chose a dress fresh off the runway for the post-show cocktails that night.

Mme Cotillard chose a variation of the same dress for one of her many strolls down ze tapis rouge.

This Resort 2014 number wasn’t outdone by her updo.

If it were up to me, however, I’d pick this photo (and gown) as one of my favourites from Cannes.
