Imagine my disappointment when I realised I had missed a whole day's worth of fashion in my final Cannes wrap-up and that it included French actress Isabelle Huppert in this Chanel couture dress.
This was from the same collection (S/S 09) as the dress Diane Kruger wore to the AMFAR benefit and I've got to say that so far Karl's last effort has translated even better into the "real world" than I thought it would.
Isabelle was the head of the jury at Cannes this year and really pulled out all the stops in terms of style. Are French women seriously born chic? I love that they don't overdo the hair and make-up and let the artistry of their clothing shine through.
Being naturally beautiful like Isabelle probably helps too.
