The Cannes Film Festival is still going strong, and we've been keeping up with all the casual daytime photocall looks and glamorous red carpet gowns all week long. In addition to posing at premieres, some of our fashionable favorites are also sharing their chic snaps through social media. Doutzen Kroes showed some leg with a group of handsome French police officers, while Eva Longoria gave us a glimpse of the breathtaking view from her hotel balcony. Jessica Biel snapped a selfie while en route to the Inside Llewyn Davis premiere, and Emma Watson looked adorable, even while getting some help with her heels.
Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop's Summer season in London, and her close pal Kate Hudson came out in support. For the occasion, Gwyneth embraced prints in a sheer-sleeved Prabal Gurung minidress, then added much-needed edge via a black leather cutout belt and matching cutout sandals. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Kate stuck to solids in a white metallic pantsuit. She kept the monochromatic theme going with a white tee and white platform pumps, then added a pop of colour with a bold pink lip. No two ways about it: both actresses delivered in the style department, but who's ensemble is your favourite?
Police in France are still on the hunt for the jewelry stolen from a Chopard employee's hotel room in Cannes last week, but there are plenty of other, much older fashion and jewelry thefts that still haven't been completely solved. Case in point: only a portion of the legendary raid at the Harry Winston store in Paris was ever found, and it doesn't appear that all of Marc Jacobs's stolen Spring 2012 samples were found.
But even though grand larceny, like all theft, is reprehensible, the motivation to steal things as gorgeous as Louis Vuitton's handbags and Chanel's jackets is understandable. Herein, a look at some of the most brazen, lucrative, and strange thefts in fashion.

Yesterday in London, the town was painted black and white. Celebrities like Pippa Middleton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, Princess Eugenie and more chose either the sexy or angelic shade for a night out. The hottest and yet the most basic colour combo for the season has hit the UK, just click through the slideshow to see what I'm talking about!
Simply put — yellow is the hotness right now, and everyone who's anyone has been spotted wearing it. From London to Los Angeles, New York and on holiday in the most remote locations, yellow clothing and accessories are buzzing briskly off the shelves of designer and High Street stores like little bees. See a bevvy of celebrites wearing yellow this Spring and let me know how you plan on incorporating this colour du jour into your wardrobe.
Most of us will steal away this Summer — be it to a lakeside cabin, a quiet beach, or a bustling city — for at least a few days, and the key to effortless travel during the warmer months is packing light. With sunny getaways in our near future (you know, the ones that require little more than a bathing suit and a few coverups) and a "no checked-bag" policy guiding our decision-making process, here are our top picks for chic weekender bags, duffels, and oversized totes. You'll be ready to jet, with no annoying waits in baggage claim.
A bag that takes you from the office out for fun Summer nights and will still be in style in the Fall? No, it's not too good to be true, thanks to these structured clutches.

And this trend is still going strong for the Fall, so buy now and wear endlessly.

Looks like Terry Richardson is just as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. The photographer both shot and stars in Valentino's Fall 2013 accessories campaign.
In the images, which will debut in fashion magazines around the world starting today, Richardson's hands and tattooed forearms are seen holding the brand's Rockstud handbag and shoe — both in signature Valentino red. The house's co-creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri told WWD the images are supposed to evoke "the sensual yet elegant nature of our accessories, described as objects of desire."
While this is the first time Richardson has worked with Chiuri and her partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, it's certainly not the first time he's appeared in one of his own campaigns. Last August, Richardson lensed an ad for jeweler David Webb that features both him and model Eniko Mihalik.
