The annual Cannes Film Festival has started, it's the 66th one and the stars were out in full force showing off new designs and beautiful gowns on the carpet.
Liya Kebede turned up at the Palais des Festivals in an Alberta Ferretti number. Her chiffon layered, lace outfit was teamed up with a black and white waistband. The gown was long sleeved with a see-through top segment. The lower segment touched the red carpet, it was flowing and whispy-like. Her black Repossi cuff bangle really stood out and gave the outfit a little 'edge'. She sported a classic, ballerina side parting hairstyle with a bun, this accentuated her terrific cheek bones. Minimal make up was worn on her flawless skin. She looked like a swan. FashionThirst can't wait to see more of her outfits at this glitzy annual event. We will be following this swan on the rivieira, we are leaving the lake behind.

It is Red Carpet event season, the season which gets the Fashion Thirst press team brimming with excitement. All of our eyes were on the dresses and collections displayed at the recent Met Gala evening event in New York City. Our attention was drawn by Anne Hathaway; a clear, all time favourite of ours.
Anne wore a throwback 1992 archived, black embellished vintage Valentino dress with dazzling sheer side breasting, accented with feathery, light cuffs and mesh panels. The dress really accentuated her curves (and even a nipple! giggle). Anne clutched her black Lucite Valentino clutch bag. Her makeup was a concoction of smokey eyes and thick noir eyeliner teamed up with nude lips. The yellow nails gave the outfit a punky edge - so daring she could have been mistaken for a Brit but what really got heads turning and tongues wagging was her platinum blond pixie, cropped slick hairstyle. The hairstyle has transformed Anne's look she left us on this night drooling for more.
Swiftly moving on our gaze turned to Uma Thurman who turned up wearing a refined, poison Ivy chartreuse satin mermaid Zac Posen gown; the hourglass silhouette swept the floor in drapes and brought chaos to this spectacular couture exhibition.
Uma sported a Gioielli Efva Attling 'Pap' ring and a stunning bracelet. Her hair was swept back and her pout was blessed with a deep red matte colour. All of these gorgeous outfits kept the Met Ball attendees on their toes. Every time I go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art it is under construction. It's home to the annual New York costume institute Gala - a date for Fashion Thirst's 2014 fashion calendar. We'll see you there!
Now Beyonce the world's eyes have been on you with sheer intensity since your newly acquired role as a 'yummy mummy'. Mummy of Blue Ivy turned up in thigh-high boots and golden gloves. Her leather strapless bustier bodice certainly accentuated her full cleavage. The Edie Parker clutch bag was tightly clasped under her arm. Mrs Carter's high-waist skirt had a long slit running down the side showing off her famous and easily recognisable thighs. The print on the skirt was loud and bold but didn't necessarily resonate with anything punk-like. Sasha Fierce looked far from fierce at the Met Gala - she is in great shape and looking as radiant as ever. More Bambi Ivy than fierce Punk.

At The Industry's event on Wednesday 24th April, industry insiders, bloggers, retailers and fashionistas alike waited in anticipation for Harvey Nichols' Fashion Director extraordinaire, Paula Reed's live interview which took place at the venue partner Swarovski Crystallized.
Ms Reed discussed her rise to the top - which included time spent at The Sunday Times, Harpers & Queen and being one of the original founders of Grazia magazine. Reed's biography is impressive, her razor sharp editorial eye successfully transferred into the fast paced world of retail fashion and her likeable and charismatic personality left the audience feeling motivated and inspired.
