Cannes juror Nicole Kidman has her official festival responsibilities, and then she has her unofficial ones — primarily, looking good. See the glitzy red carpet gowns she packed and the low-key outfits she's been rocking when strolling the city.
What's black and white and red all over? At the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, those seemed to be the colors of choice for the models walking down the red carpet.
Newcomer Barbara Palvin wore an unexpected but chic black tuxedo by Alexandre Vauthier to the premiere of Cleopatra, and Heidi Klum wore a white, studded Versace gown to the premiere of Nebraska. Inès de la Fressange, at left, wowed photographers in a strapless red dress on her way to a screening of Jeune & Jolie. But Milla Jovovich was spotted in all three colors when she chose a Spring 2013 Chanel Couture gown for the Blood Ties premiere.

On the heels of her Met Gala appearance, Madonna is at it again at the Billboard Music Awards. The (first) Queen of Pop received the top touring artist award, and while she may have skipped the red carpet, her Givenchy Haute Couture outfit was certainly worth the wait. Dressed in some recognizable pieces courtesy of the aforementioned Met Gala, Madonna took the stage in a black fishnet dress, topped with a texturized, cropped, and feather-collared bomber jacket. But the look didn't end there. She wore it all cinched with a grommet-embellished wide belt and finished with thigh-high stockings, which were fastened with a garter belt. As for the last bit of accessories? She also rocked her monogrammed padlock choker, statement sunglasses, and black platform pumps. Did she nail it?
Jennifer Lopez flaunted her figure in a Zuhair Murad gown that showed off her stems with sheer, embellished fabric and a neckline that plunged toward her navel. It was all about gold, too — the dress sparkled thanks to metallic scales, and the effect was finished with ankle-strap pumps and a clutch in the same hue. Do you like it all together?
Taylor Swift is no stranger to wearing Zuhair Murad's sexy dresses (the proof here and here), and tonight's Billboard Music Awards reminded us why we love when she does. Her electric blue Pre-Fall 2013 look showed off the singer's long legs, but the skin-baring elements didn't stop there. The long-sleeved mini also gave way to sheer insets and symmetrical cutouts on both the neckline and back. Swift polished it all off with a knuckle ring, pewter-colored earrings and heels, and sultry eye makeup to match. Are you into it?
Long sleeves and a floor-sweeping silhouette didn't mean Emmy Rossum's velvet Zuhair Murad look was buttoned-up. Far from it! Sheer, spotted fabric let the actress flash some skin, and from the back, it was positively sultry. Do you like the hourglass effect Emmy achieved?
