And yet we had another posibility to clap eyes on well-dressed (however not always) stars and get inspired by their red carpet looks. It was even better than last that important red carpet moment - Met Gala. Why? Because Festival de Cannes lasted far more than only one day.
It was accompanied by many events such as one of more substantial galas of the year - amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala. The whole festival started on May 14 with the screening of Grace of Monako with Nicole Kidman as title character. The loved idol, Ryan Gosling, showed in Cannes Lost Rive, his...directorial debut. There was Clouds of Sils Maria, the movie with three superpopular actresses: Chloë Grace Moret, Kristen stewart and Juliette Binoche. ''Belgian Western'' this is how the Deux Jours, Une Nuit movie with Marion Cotillard was billed as. Tommy Lee Jones stars, directs, and produces The Homesman where Meryl Streep acts alongside her daughter Grace Gummer. In his Maps to the Stars David Cronenberg knocks Hollywood and puts Rob Pattinson, Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska in leading roles. The British showed Mike Leigh's Mr Turner, a biopic of the last 25 years of the titular eccentric painter's life. Fashion lovers could find something for themselves not only on the red carpet. Another movie presented in Cannes was  the second of two Yves Saint Laurent films. Saint Laurent is thie unauthorised account of the designer’s life which had to (and did) fuel controversy.
Who won Palme d'Or? I'm sure you'll see winners everywhere else on the Web, so on Fashion from Art, traditionally, you'll see fashion.

Recently, when looking through photos from last Chanel show, I saw a comment which went more or less like that: Chanel does the East, chanel does Dallas, chanel does the gallery, chanel does the supermarket, chanel does India? Maybe it's time for someone else to be Chanel and Lagerfeld to continue being Lagerfeld? What would I say? Each time he changes the place of his show and with them the climate of the collection but his designs are always Chanel. Karl is a genius!
What's more, we can't forget about the fact that Gabrielle Coco was constantly breaking the rules and Lagerfeld just continues this tradition. French lady did it even more drastically - mind the times when she lived, former fashion and women's position in the society. 
However, German Paris-based designer is controversial too. Just google his strange habits, facts about his beloved kitten Chouppette or most popular quotes. I recommend you also going to the Fashion from Art encyclopedia: link 1, link 2. It's highly possible that without fueling controversy or dividing people in his haters and lovers he would die. Why am I speaking about this? Because Lagerfeld's collections for Chanel are just like him and the latest one doesn't step out of line.
Allowedly, Lagerfeld makes collections which are somehow connected with the place where they are shown. Pre-Fall 2014 fashion show in Dallas was totally....Dallas-ish so it wasn't very difficult to deduce what will be the general character of the Cruise 2015 collection. As you probably heard or you could conclude from the title, it was set in Dubai. The prediction turned up to be apt - Lagerfeld's latest designs and the whole show were kept in the eastern climate. But that was all what could be predicted because the crazy designer shocked the public again!
Models - Ola Rudnicka was the only Polish who appeared on the runway, changed into mysterious ladies of the Middle East, wives of sheikhs. On their heads we could see headbands with crescents, the symbols of the Islam, in their hands bags looking like canisters. What more was shown in Dubai? Harem pants, reinterpretations of oriental patterns, flowing dresses, Alladin's slippers, patchworks, one outfit - many layers, three-dimensional geometries, weightless materials, tweed - the material which is typical for Chanel, floral prints, original forms, colors more  (beige, black, white, grey) and less characteristic for this fashion house- gold or red...The East was mixed with the West, the old and traditional was reinterpreted and contemporized and Chanel met Orient. And again he perfectly joined the climate of the place with the climate of the collection. ! برافو Bravo!
Here you are, Fashion from Art's favourite looks from the show:
