Style Crush : Audrey Tautou


There were so many fabulous fashions at the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival but my absolute favorite red carpet look belonged to Audrey Tautou this year. The gamine actress who also served as the mistress of ceremonies of the awards closed out the festival in fine style wearing a vibrant red Prada ball gown featuring pink straps and a matching waist sash at the Palme D'Or Winners Photocall. She was radiantly beautiful as always and this gown struck a perfect balance between drama and freshness. What do you think of this look?

Health update: Last week was abit rough. I was battling the dizzies and I also sprained my ankle while trying to avoid a sidewalk biker the other week so I had to stay off my feet and rest. It all bites but it still beats having any life threatening as far as I'm concerned. Besides I've found that the hubster makes quite the excellent butler haha. Seriously, he makes everything all the more bearable for me and I'm incredibly lucky and thankful for that.

Hi Rowena, you are right she looks too gorgeous! I like her simple but classy beauty, the gown just stands it out!:) I'm sorry also for your ankle, got the same trouble last year and I get you! Take care and be well soon! Kisses dear! xo

I LOVE HER! I think she is the cutest Rowena. That gown was truly amazing. There was another one I loved. She wore green. She was asian, but I can't think of her name. They really did put on the glitz in Cannes. When I heard about your mishap, I was like ohhhh noooo! When it rains it pours. Keep hanging in there doll! Rowena, you need to get one of those little servant bells that you can ring when you need something! HAHAHAHAHA I'm just kidding! Don't get any ideas! Truly miss you :(

I love Audrey Tautou and have probably seen most of her movies. The color of the dress is amazing as well.

I'm sorry you had a rough week. I will email you the name of the book I told you about a billion years ago. I hope this week is better!

Pink and red! I'm seeing this combination more and more. She is lovely and the dress is gorgeous:)

Rowena, you have a wonderful attitude and I'm glad your husband is there for you:) Sounds like a great guy and a good friend. Take care of yourself and hand in there!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

That red Prada gown is a stunner! And the addition of the pink straps is so eye-catching. Oh, baby, so sorry you've had the dizzies again, but so good you have a butler at your beck and call lol! Do you have a butler's bell at your bedside (I can just envision it!) ;) Seriously, Rowena, sorry you turned your ankle, ouch, and so hope this dizziness that's plagued your fun for farrrrrrr too long goes away quickly! Sending hugs! xo ~S

Cheers to the hubs! It's always nice to be taken care of. No more boo-boos, ok? :)

To bust out a cliche, Audrey Tautou just has a certain je ne sais quoi. Also one of the few women who can rock super short hair. *jealous*

BIKBIK AND RORO said...

O, I love Audrey Tautou! In an industry quite filled with coarse tastelessness, she always emerges tasteful and elegant, proving that modesty is a very beautiful thing.

Sam said...

Hi sweetheart, I am so sorry to hear about your ankle, hope you are getting to rest and recover. Thinking of you. I loved Audrey in this dress, the combination of pink and red was unexpected and a wonderfully bold contrast. Thanks for stopping by..Happy Friday!

I'm sorry to hear about your dizziness and sprained ankle. But then again, it gives you a chance to be pampered by the hubz.

RYC:
Thanx for your wishes, dear. The test caused me quite a bit of pain and discomfort but I did enjoy myself after that relaxing the whole weekend.

She always looks cute and pretty. I love the colors in the gown and the simple lines. Sorry to hear about your sprained ankle. Hope it heals asap. By the way, I got these foam pillows last year that gave me vertigo kind of feeling and I had to throw them away. I seriously thought I was losing my mind but changing the pillows worked really well and got rid of my dizzies. You should try changing pillows and see if that helps. Hope you feel better. Have a great week Rowena :)

I'm sorry you got hurt Rowena! That sucks! I hope the Mag powder is working. I take it too but I don't take it regularly like I should....
Wishing you well and a speedy recovery!!
