Cannes 2017: Best dressed

We’ve all know the iconic Festival of Cannes, for which all Hollywood stars, highlighters trendsetters ect ….gather to watch the latest in cinema (often weird independent films). During that festival week there are countless red carpet events and galas , it’s basically the week we’re all waiting to see beautiful clothes and some fashion “faux pas” (as the French would say).

Here are some of the best dressed people in my mind during the Cannes extravaganzas.

These two just look like their fairy godmother has glammed them up for the biggest ball of their lives. Bachchan’s dress by Michael Cinco actually reminds me of the dress in the live action Cinderella movie (with Lilly James ). A very traditional big royal ball gown. Meanwhile Harlow is wearing what I would call a modern take on the Cinderella ball gown by Zuhair Murad. Both looks are elegant and impossible not to stare at.

Simple Chic- Daphne Groeneveld

When in doubt simple and elegant is always the way to go to achieve the ultimate chic look. Pink and light with an sophisticated cleavage …top marks for Daphne!

Fresh Flowers- Jourdan Dunn & Elle Fanning

Look at how elegant and innocent these two ladies look. If you look closely though you can lightly see Jourdan’s legs though the light fabric of her dresses’ skirt. Subtle and sexy. The neckline also gets great marks. Elle is dresses in a less sexy but just as elegant flowery dress. It makes her look young and innocent and it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Hobbo Chic – Stacy Martin

It kind of look like that dress was’t meant for this type of event and yet there is something extremely charming and sophisticated dress. The colour is subtle and the fabric’s shimeriness gives it that extra “je ne sais quoi”.  Absolute proof that their is sophistication in simplicity.

There were so many good looks I couldnt possibly have them all on here. These are just some of my personal favourites…might be adding some more very soon.

How to Vaguely Make Gnocchi

Potatoes Potatoes Potatoes, the main ingredient for gnocchis, we tend to forget.

Fresh Gnocchi always taste better so I though I would try making my very own. Not the perfect making of experience but with some practice I’m getting better.

Gnocchis in the making

Gnocchis in the making

Vague instructions on how to make gnocchi:

  • A bunch of potatoes
  • A pile of flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • Eggs …chicken obviously
  • Drop of water
  • You can also add chopped up (in itsy bitsy tiny bits) like brocoli….yes it tastes nice I swear
  1. First you need to boil those potatoes and then crush the hell out of them. Don’t completely make them into mash but close to that
  2. Add most of the bunch of flour to the now dead potatoes but keep some for later, you’ll need it to make a mess later.
  3. Break those eggs into the flour/potatoes. MIX, with a spoon but really the best is to get those little hands of yours dirty! Think of it as bread dough. Make it in to one homogeneous ball of dough. If it gets too hard put a drop of water to ease it but don’t make it rain on the dough please

  4. Remember the flour you were meant to have kept to make a mess,it’s now time to use it! Spread flour on CLEAN (don’t be unhygienic please) work area and dump the dough on it,so it doesn’t stick. Take pieces of the dough and roll into long gnocchi thick spaghetti. You should get a few of those.
  5. Cut the long pieces of dough into even smaller pieces. Round the corners of the pieces so they dont look all messy and use a fork to do the lines that make gnocchis look like little bugs.
  6. Put them in a container .Pop them in the fridge for a bit, voila.
  7. Dont forget to cook them. Boil or fry them and serve them with anything you like Enjoy !
