Day 11 of Cannes Film Festival was a rather dull, with only the premiere of Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon-starrer Mud taking place. So nothing unremarkable fashion-wise, too?

The best-dressed of the day for me was the L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador/actress Andie MacDowell, purely because she spoke to my minimalistic senses. It was a black Giorgio Armani gown with a deep V-neckline and layered frills on the skirt. So far, pretty run-off-the-mill.

Then the tribal-looking Boucheron jewels come into view and the look just goes… WHOA! The bracelet, necklace and earrings in leopard-wood and gold set with rubies and diamonds are intriguing, no? FYI, they’re from Boucheron archives, dating from 1986!

Next up is Matthew McConaughey, who scrubbed up rather well for the premiere of his film. The black two-button slim notch lapel tuxedo complete with waistcoat (Dolce & Gabbana or Spencer Hart?) was well sharp ‒ and yes, the trousers were the right length! He did catch my eye this time, something he did not do two nights ago at the The Paperboy premiere, in a dowdy Spencer Hart suit.

And guess what? He brought out an equally dowdy suit for the photocall of the film earlier in the day. It was Dolce & Gabanna ‒ and how unflattering it was!

Unfortunately I don’t have many nice words to say about his fiancée Camila Alves’s *threads* at the premiere. She went for a strapless silver draped tulle gown with a ruffled skirt and embroidered bodice detail from Marchesa’s A/W’12 line, which I found rather cheap-looking thanks to the tulle overload. Her skin/make-up was absolutely glowing, though.

And her Chopard bling-bling… always eye-catching!

Reese Witherspoon, too, was glowing at the red carpet. It was custom empire-waisted navy silk chiffon Atelier Versace gown with double straps, a central split, cut-out back and a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals.

Silver Versace sandals, pear-shaped dropping earrings and matching bracelet from Chopard nicely rounded off her look. The gown twinkled, not as much as Aishwarya’s Elie Saab gown from the previous night though ;-)

She trusted Versace for her daytime appearance as well, for the photocall of Mud ‒ and it’s unfortunate that she did. The black long-sleeved figure-hugging cocktail dress with a ruched detailing from the neck to the hip screamed bargain basement ‒ and not an expensive designer wear. What I did like were the super cute pink Manolo Blahnik sandals, which popped against the black.
