Lights, camera, FASHION! The Cannes Film Festival kicked off today in the French Riviera, where stars from all over the world convened in the city to promote their films. This is one red carpet we look forward to every year—the stars aren’t afraid to take fashion risks in Cannes, and we love to watch them. Even today, when the raindrops poured down for the premiere film, The Great Gatsby, star Carey Mulligan smiled for the cameras with umbrella in hand wearing a blush Dior Haute Couture gown and Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Isla Fisher, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore weren’t far behind. Click to see more Cannes Film Festival fashion.
Gone so soon? After a successful trip promoting his charities and melting hearts in D.C. and Colorado (no Las Vegas scandal to speak of), our favorite fun-loving royal Prince Harry made his way to the East Coast. He schmoozed with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie along the Jersey Shore, played ball with Harlem’s youth, and hosted a polo match in Greenwich, Connecticut. Bid Harry a final farewell by clicking through photos from his mini American holiday.

Congratulations, CeCe! Hannah Simone’s character got hitched on last night’s second season finale of New Girl, which meant costume designer Deb McGuire had to make the clothes look and feel authentic for a traditional Indian wedding. To do so, she purchased a lehenga, a traditional Indian wedding gown, in the Little India section of Los Angeles, Artesia, one of her go-to spots for two decades. “When I heard we were doing an Indian wedding for our final episode I planned a shopping day with my crew, including lunch at my favorite Indian vegetarian restaurant,” McGuire told us. “The red wedding sari that Cece wears was the first of four that we picked out. When she put it on, it took our breath away. We didn’t even attempt to consider the others!” The challenge was picking an equally beautiful sari for Jess (Zooey Deschanel) to make sure she stood out among the other guests clad in jewel-tone looks. “The blue trimmed in pink was perfection, especially because I could envision it looking smashing against the orange decor,” McGuire said. “The visual, indeed, made me gasp with delight. Color is powerful!” To learn more about Zooey Deschanel’s New Girl fashion, visit possessionista.com.

Ben Affleck is dipping his toes in TOMS shoes! The star teamed up with the one-for-one shoe company to design limited-edition shoes for men and women that supports his organization, the Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI). Affleck founded ECI in 2010 to help the people of the eastern Congo build up their community so that it can flourish both economically and socially. The shoe represents his organization, as it is inspired by traditional Congolese textiles. “Getting involved in something, helping others, improving the fabric of the universe—I believe that if you do that, even just a little bit, I think you’ll find your life gets better, too,” he said. Visit toms.com to purchase a pair for $59. Not only will TOMS donate a pair of shoes to a child in need in accordance to the company’s one-for-one model, $5 dollars from each sale will be donated toward ECI’s programs for youth and families in the region.
