Best & worst fashion of the fest: Day seven
THE GREAT, APART FROM THE ENTIRE MIDDLE-SECTION: Because this Roberto Cavalli gown is so weighty, it creates the illusion of a completely shapeless middle section on Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton, a crime considering the ex Ms. DiCaprio probably has one of the most enviable waists in the business. It's nice to see a bright red lip worn with minimal eye makeup, however (many stars seem to have forgotten the age old 'the eyes' or 'the lips' rule recently).

THE MOST IMPROVED: When I saw Aishwarya Rai's first two red carpet looks I thought that mayve she was still carrying some of her baby weight, but this Gucci Premiere gown begs to differ. She looks amazing, and clearly her Elie Saab and Abu Jani looks were just unflattering. I love the contrast of the pink lip and the teal dress and the cut is very flattering, it's amazing what artful draping can do. The hair's my only problem, it's too extra-in-Mars-Attacks.

THE JEWELS MAKE IT: Jessica Chastain chose a Versace Spring/Summer 2014 gown (as in, yes, it hasn't even hit the runway yet) to showcase the main event, one of Elizabeth Taylor's iconic necklaces. It's Bulgari and was a gift from Richard Burton. Thoughts on the look overall: A) The necklace is amazing, as are her waves. B) That dress does not look like Versace. C) From the front, I'm like, "okay, this is working", but that awkwardly-placed cape-cum-train? Not working. It makes it look like Chasty has the shoulders of a prop, which she clearly doesn't.

GOOD DRESS, BAD MAKEUP: While I think it's safe to say that this Roberto Cavalli gown seriously flatters Kylie Minogue's petite frame and that the 44-year-old can pull off the ivory colour, it does look to me like she forgot to do her hair/put on lippie. But all-in-all a win.

THE ARCHETYPAL: It's like this Elie Saab Couture gown was crafted with Dita Von Teese in mind. I think if I saw her at the dairy in a hoodie with her hair back in a ponytail and no makeup on I actually wouldn't recognise her. At all.

THE NOT-WORKING: Milla Jovovich is posing her little heart out, but this Prada gown is just not working. I like the embellishment on the straps and the bottom, but the top is essentially a very expensive bib. A curvier star may have been able to pull this off.

THE BARELY RECOGNISABLE: I had to do a double take to make sure the picture wires hadn't captioned these incorrectly, but this is the formerly-curvy and brunette model Petra Nemcova. If you can rip your eyes off her impossibly shiny teeth for a second, this champagne gown is by Emilio Pucci, and I actually like it (the crimped hair is another story...).

THE GOOD: I love Rosario Dawson because, unlike most celebs she's smiling and laughing in nearly every single snap of her on the red carpet (you're only on it for like five minutes, and are probably getting paid a good whack to be there, so a smile's the least you could do, right?). And I even love this Marchesa gown despite the puffy sleeves - amazing what a good attitude can do.

THE 55?!: Sharon Stone is halfway through her fifties. That's right, nearing 60 and rocking a cleavage-tastic Roberto Cavalli gown. So, while it's not my style, I can do nothing but applaud her - oh, and all the help she's had.

Sharon Stone and Kylie Minogue rock form-fitting numbers, Aishwarya Rai looks the best she has yet and Chastain and the model-brigade go fashion-forward.

It's the best and worst dressed on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival, day seven.
