The Cannes Film Festival is still going strong, and we've been keeping up with all the casual daytime photocall looks and glamorous red carpet gowns all week long. In addition to posing at premieres, some of our fashionable favorites are also sharing their chic snaps through social media. Doutzen Kroes showed some leg with a group of handsome French police officers, while Eva Longoria gave us a glimpse of the breathtaking view from her hotel balcony. Jessica Biel snapped a selfie while en route to the Inside Llewyn Davis premiere, and Emma Watson looked adorable, even while getting some help with her heels.
Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop's Summer season in London, and her close pal Kate Hudson came out in support. For the occasion, Gwyneth embraced prints in a sheer-sleeved Prabal Gurung minidress, then added much-needed edge via a black leather cutout belt and matching cutout sandals. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Kate stuck to solids in a white metallic pantsuit. She kept the monochromatic theme going with a white tee and white platform pumps, then added a pop of colour with a bold pink lip. No two ways about it: both actresses delivered in the style department, but who's ensemble is your favourite?
Police in France are still on the hunt for the jewelry stolen from a Chopard employee's hotel room in Cannes last week, but there are plenty of other, much older fashion and jewelry thefts that still haven't been completely solved. Case in point: only a portion of the legendary raid at the Harry Winston store in Paris was ever found, and it doesn't appear that all of Marc Jacobs's stolen Spring 2012 samples were found.
But even though grand larceny, like all theft, is reprehensible, the motivation to steal things as gorgeous as Louis Vuitton's handbags and Chanel's jackets is understandable. Herein, a look at some of the most brazen, lucrative, and strange thefts in fashion.

Yesterday in London, the town was painted black and white. Celebrities like Pippa Middleton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, Princess Eugenie and more chose either the sexy or angelic shade for a night out. The hottest and yet the most basic colour combo for the season has hit the UK, just click through the slideshow to see what I'm talking about!
The 66th annual Cannes Film Festival is under way with the help of our favorite A-listers, who aren't afraid to show off their style or beauty chops. With every sunny (and even not-so-sunny) photocall in the French Riviera, we're highlighting the chic daytime ensembles the stars wear before they hit the red carpet — just check out Jessica Biel looking cool in colorblock; Rachel Bilson in a polished ensemble; and Karolina Kurkova rocking crisp white denim. Then click through to see stars doing what they do best: showing off their perfectly chic daytime outfits for the cameras.
Simply put — yellow is the hotness right now, and everyone who's anyone has been spotted wearing it. From London to Los Angeles, New York and on holiday in the most remote locations, yellow clothing and accessories are buzzing briskly off the shelves of designer and High Street stores like little bees. See a bevvy of celebrites wearing yellow this Spring and let me know how you plan on incorporating this colour du jour into your wardrobe.
Most of us will steal away this Summer — be it to a lakeside cabin, a quiet beach, or a bustling city — for at least a few days, and the key to effortless travel during the warmer months is packing light. With sunny getaways in our near future (you know, the ones that require little more than a bathing suit and a few coverups) and a "no checked-bag" policy guiding our decision-making process, here are our top picks for chic weekender bags, duffels, and oversized totes. You'll be ready to jet, with no annoying waits in baggage claim.
So far, 2013 has been a big fashion year for a certain Miley Cyrus. She's been photographed in Chanel, Valentino, and Balmain (pictured from left to right at a Ryan Seacrest event, the Maxim Hot 100 Party, and the Billboard Music Awards) and is well on her way to achieving that one thing every style icon has mastered: a signature look. She's recently skipped over the majority of the colour spectrum, instead gravitating toward black and white accented with a third colour by way of her red lips. It gets more specific, too: beyond loving the two-toned combo, Miley's showing a serious propensity for playsuits rather than more common red carpet dresses.
The singer's image has gotten sexier as she's moved past her Hannah Montana stage, and fashion-wise, her cropped 'do seemed to usher in a whole new era of envelope-pushing fashion. Whatever the case, we love that she's turned into a dresser to watch.
