Three Things We Must Discuss: Cannes Edition

Cannes just keeps getting better and better, but with all the dresses, jewels and fabulous shoes parading by, it’s possible to miss some of the details. Here, we call out three things you’ve gotta see before the next round of gowns this evening.

Carey Mulligan’s Majorly Expensive Earrings: It’s no surprise to see mega-watt jewels on the red carpet at the French film festival (Chopard is an official partner, after all), but even with all that bling, it’s still possible to stop us in our tracks. Mulligan did just that at the Great Gatsby premiere, accenting her pale pink Dior Haute Couture gown with red lips — and a pair of Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings from the Blue Book Collection worth $1.15 million. Add another $112,000 in diamonds in her bracelet and we think she’s got a jewelry collection even Daisy Buchanan would envy.

Red Carpet Trend Report: The Scoop on Pretty Ponies, Wrist Candy and Peep-Toe Booties

In our weekly round-up of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we saw bracelets get swapped out for plain ol’ wristwatches, an abundance of lovely, slicked-back strands — and one instance of confused-weather footwear that we think can be retired right about now.

Up: Elegant ponytails. Perhaps blame it on the transitional weather, but plenty of stars this week opted to smooth their hair back into elegant, classic ponytails and not risk the frizz factor. Zoë Saldana had one of our favorites, but Julianne Hough, Olivia Munn, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum have all worn their hair tightly pulled back into a pretty, simple style.

We Need to Talk About White Pumps

When we first saw the resurgence of white pumps on the red carpet, they were worn only by very fashion-forward stars (think: Rihanna) — so we didn’t rush to Zappos right away.

But over the last year, we’ve seen the ’80s-tacular trend gaining momentum, on stars who perhaps aren’t quite as avant-garde.

And now that we’ve spotted at least five pairs of the pumps in the last week alone — worn by stars as diverse as Kate Hudson (left) and Eva Longoria (second from right) — we’re realizing this is a trend we can’t just ignore.

What we love about the five stars in this lineup is that they prove to us just how diverse the tricky trend can be. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s (second from left) Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps add unexpected spice to her Michael Kors strapless sheath; on Vanessa Hudgens they’re sweet and girlie when worn with denim; and they look sleek and mod with Nicole Richie‘s matching swing dress (right).

So now that it’s clear that this trend is really, really happening, are you on board? Or is it too much of a throwback for you?

Four Fun Ways to Wear Curly Hair - Whether You've Got 10 Minutes or Two Hours

It seems as though every starlet in Hollywood is born with long, perfectly beachy waves — or at least clicking through “Last Night’s Look” can make it feel that way. What’s a girl with curly hair to do for tress inspiration?

Well, the hair gods must have been listening to our complaints, because this week alone, four curly-haired stars went out with very different looks, all of which those of us born without red-carpet-ready hair can achieve.

Emmy Rossum: You’d never know it from her normally glossy locks, but Rossum’s hair is quite curly. To get her modified pony, spritz dry shampoo through day-old waves, then blow out roughly with a round brush and finish with a flat iron. Your natural texture gives the do volume and a little edge.

Red Carpet Trend Report: The Scoop on Wacky Hemlines, White Heels & 'Too Much Look'

We like to stay on top of trends, but we have to admit that the two looks seen all over the red carpet lately have us a little surprised. And yet, the stars wearing them look so cute that we may put prejudices aside and give them a try ourselves. See which styles are gaining ground — and which one we’re ready to leave in the dust — below:

Up: Funky hemlines. More advanced than your basic high-low or handkerchief hemlines, stars like Halle Berry and Nicole Richie have been sporting fitted skirts with triangular cutouts. This look has the same thigh-baring effect as a high slit without being quite as obvious — though we strongly recommend practicing sitting and standing in this one before taking it public.

Three Stars, Two Days, Four Under-$100 Red Carpet Items

We’re not going to lie: if we were celebrities, we’d be wearing all the poshest, priciest things designers could offer us for our red carpet events. Which is why we have newfound appreciation for (from left) Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba and Michelle Williams, who each wore an under-$100 find on the red carpet this week.

Longoria swears she doesn’t care about fashion, but she sure fakes it well while visiting the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday in this cute trench-inspired H&M dress (only $79.95) cinched with a gold belt by the retailer ($17.95). She looks like a million bucks — quite a feat, considering she spent less than $100.

Eva Longoria's Fashion Philosophy: 'I Just Put It On if It's Pretty!'

Feb/13/2013 at 04:30 PM ET

Eva Longoria‘s name is practically synonymous with high-wattage red carpet looks … which is why we were surprised to find out that the star isn’t at all interested in fashion.

“I don’t pay a lot of attention to [fashion]. My stylist [Charlene Roxborough] does, though,” Longoria told PEOPLE at the Lays’s Do Us a Flavor event in N.Y.C. on Tuesday. “I just put it on if it’s pretty.”

And thanks to Roxborough and the rest of Longoria’s glam squad, she’s become a permanent fixture on ‘Best Dressed’ lists. “[My style] has evolved tremendously. Have you seen my old red carpet photos?” she joked. “And it’s evolved because I’ve hired the right people who focus on that.”

Roxborough’s style guidance also extends to Longoria’s everyday wardrobe — she forced the self-proclaimed “clothes hoarder” to part with her beloved Juicy sweats. “[Roxborough] told me, ‘If you wear Uggs and a Juicy [suit] one more time … ‘” Longoria recalled. “I said, ‘I was going to Starbucks!’ And she was like, ‘I don’t care!’”

Now that she’s gotten a fashion education, Longoria favors designs by Ángel Sánchez, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Emilio Pucci. Her all-time favorite gown, however, was by Marchesa: a dreamy, blush creation she wore to the Cannes Film Festival last year. “I loved the hair, the makeup and the dress,” she explained. “That was a perfect illusion created for that night.”

For more on what Longoria and Lay’s are up to, head over to to learn all about the Do Us a Flavor contest. Tell us: Are you like Longoria when it comes to fashion, or do you love getting all dressed up?
