Embellishment still has us in its thrall as sequins, bejeweled and glitter speckled frocks are all the rage at the most glamorous movie festival – The Cannes 2014 Film Festival. Nicole Kidman and Paz Vega wore gem encrusted gowns at the premiere of Grace Of Monaco with Nicole Kidman in a strapless blue Armani prive gown and paz Vega in a cream halter neck Elie Saab midi dress. At the same event, Jane Fonda stood out from the matching red carpet in an all-over beaded Elie Saab creation with a cinched waist and sheer sleeves. Blake Lively was a vision in a heavily embellished seafoam Chanel Couture creation at the Mr. Turner premiere while Cate Blanchett wowed in a gray Valentino number with silvery embroidery and a feathered collar at the Chopard Trophy event.

Sparkle from day to night by choosing embellished sportswear: bombers, blouses and bags have all had a razzle-dazzle makeover this season.
