On the red carpet: Hailee Steinfeld, Kate Beckinsale, Naomi Cambell, Nicole Kidman

Hailee Steinfeld looked beautiful in a silver macramé dress at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Kate Beckinsale glowed in Zuhair Murad at the same event. While the gown was bit more formal than other guests’ choices, the fireworks motif and diamond belt are quite Vegas and fun. The actress added Jimmy Choos.

A supermodel wearing Atelier Versace to Cannes really isn’t fair on the actresses. Physical paragon+goddess gown=mortals in the shade. Naomi attended the Fashion For Relief Gala during the French festival and added Bulgaria diamonds.

Saying anyone looks good “for her age” is loathsome but it really must be acknowledged that Nicole Kidman both turned 50 and pulled off a giant white tutu at Cannes this year. Both shoes and gown were custom-designed by Raf Simons for Calvin Klein.
