Celebrating Cannes 2013

As the annual Cannes Film Festival is reaching its end, we thought that we would celebrate the best dressed at this year's festival. Judging from our picks, the monochrome trend is clearly still going strong.

Of course, we've also included the D&ME take on some of our favourite red carpet looks.

Gatsby Glamour

Carey Mulligan was shadowed by a security guard throughout the filming of The Great Gatsby.

The protection was not for her, however, but for the millions of dollars worth of Tiffany's & Co. jewellery that her character, Daisy Buchanan, sported in nearly every scene that she was featured.

Mulligan said:

"I would be doing a scene, wearing these fabulous jewels from Tiffany's worth many, many millions ... There'd be diamond bracelets on each arm, and diamond earrings, and rings, and strings of pearls around my neck. And I could see this guy in the corner watching me intently, in case I ran off with anything."

Flower Power

The Chelsea Flower Show ran until the 25th of May at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, D&ME's neighbour. This annual event, attended by the Royal Family (Prince Charles pictured below), remains England's most prestigious flower show since its conception in 1913. As usual, this year's show has provided a colourful spectacle of beautiful flowers of all shapes and sizes and if there is one thing we love at D&ME it's flowers!

Priceless Photo(bomb) Moments

This year's MET gala has given us plenty to discuss. What with all the outfits and extreme make up and who is really punk and who isn't.

However the moment that has won our hearts and brought joy to our morning coffee drinking whilst surfing the net is this GIF of Jennifer Lawrence photobombing Sarah Jessica Parker. A reminder to always keep things light and fun.

And once you are done cracking up at Jen's jump, look around the background for some other faces that got captured having a great reaction too.

It looks like spring is finally arriving in London, and this one-of-a-kind, must-have statement piece is perfect for the transition into the new season. Be bold and wear it with printed shorts like Miranda, or dress it down with trousers and still look classy and put-together.

The jacket is currently in-stock at D&ME. Click here for more details!
