Aside from the red carpet premieres, the actresses were also styled to perfection during their photocalls... 
Alicia Vikander - Louis Vuitton Resort 16 / Amber Heard - Zimmermann Spring 15
Elizabeth Banks - Dolce and Gabbana / Diane Kruger - Preen Resort 16
Kristen Stewart - Chanel / Dakota Johnson - Valentino Resort 16
Paz Vega - Salvatore Ferragamo / Dakota Johnson - Rodarte Fall 15

Overall Favourite Look - Amber Heard wearing Alexander McQueen. This gown had it all: print, ruffles, colour. I also loved the styling, a messy updo hairstyle added an extra element of unrefined beauty. The whole look had a dark glamorous allure…something which Amber Heard always does so well on the red carpet. 

Best Dressed Attendee - Whilst this was a very close call between Eliabeth Banks and Diane Kruger, in the end I opted for Diane Kruger. Each of her red carpet looks oozed European Film Festival glamour. Luxurious fabrics in romantic colours, made for very beautiful gowns which looked elegant on each occassion.

Best Colour and Print - Elizabeth Banks wearing Andrew GN and Elie Saab. Not many stars are brave enough to wear print and colour, especially not when attending such high profile red carpet events, but Elizabeth never shies away from either. Elizabeth always brings an element of her vibrant personality to the red carpet, and whilst I wouldn't say that either of these 2 gowns were the most elegant we saw at this festival they stood out to me because they marked such a stark contract against everything else and I applaud the actress for always making such bold choices.

Most Daring - Juliette Binoche wearing Armani Prive - It is not easy to successfully wear a floor length embellished gown, and add a plunging neckline into the mix as well, makes a very daring look. It was attention-grabbing but for all the right reasons.

Best Photocall - Paz Vega wearing Salvatore Ferragamo. I adore the bold pop of pink on the floral print. Dressing for a photocell you have the opportunity to be more relaxed and playful, this dress has the perfect balance of both.
