Red Carpet Trend Report: What's Sizzling and What's Fizzling

Our favorite fashionable celebs are currently in the south of France premiering their best and newest styles (oh yeah, and movies!) at the Cannes Film Festival. To mark the occasion, let’s pick apart which trends we love and the one we won’t be requesting an encore for, shall we?

Here’s what’s hot — and not — this week:

Up: Dresses with mega trains. Eva Longoria rocked several gorgeous Cannes gowns this week, but we’re obsessed with her show-stopping opening-night look: a pale lavender, illusion-embroidered Marchesa gown with a frothy over-the-top train.

Down: Highly styled updos. Marion Cotillard is typically the epitome of Parisian chic, but we’re not loving her somewhat stiff bouffant. With summer approaching, we prefer to see starlets let their hair down or go for a messier updo on the red carpet.

Up: Pretty pointy-toe pumps. Instead of the staid platforms, Kristen Bell breaks from the mold in a pair of baby blue pointy toe pumps to complement her bright orange 3.1 Phillip Lim summer frock.
