Cannes Festival fashion: Day two

  • All about the bling

    All eyes were on Harry Potter star Emma at the premiere for The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola’s tale about rich-kids-turned-rogue. Opting for sleek black and white Chanel couture, she accessorised appropriately, with three blinging silver earrings. (Rex Features)

  • Woman in black

    Day one of Cannes was all about Gatsby, so star Carey Mulligan ducked out of the spotlight a little on day two, plumping for a more subtle Calvin Klein Collection LBD at the designer’s party.(Rex Features)

  • Hell for leather

    Also at the party, and in Calvin Klein Collection, jury member Nicole Kidman was more daring in the downpour, wearing a dramatic black leather number with Jimmy Choo heels. (Rex Features)

  • Simply fragrant

    Named the new face of Calvin Klein fragrance at the Calvin Klein party, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara chose a figure-hugging, blush-coloured dress from the fashion house. (Rex Features)

    Freida Pinto proved another hit on day two, wearing a leg-revealing dress by Indian designer Sanchita, paired with Jimmy Choo heels and bag at the Bling Ring premiere. (Rex Features)
