Kendall Jenner's anticipated appearance in Cannes yesterday predicatably stunned the crowd, with a breathtaking pink tulle gown stealing the show.

The supermodel wore a strapless, voluminous, tiered dress for the amfAR Gala during the elite French film festival, and the dress brought ALL the drama.

Featuring a high-low hem with a long train, she later detached it to reveal a mini version of the gown. We love versatility, and this embodies it.

Normally we'd always assume that everything a Kardashian/Jenner dons is simply for the rich folk of society to enjoy, and we'll slowly retreat to Penneys or our local charity shop.

As it turns out, the dress can actually be bought in H&M, of all places. The gown is part of couture designer Giambattista Valli's limited-edition collection with the high street brand.

The mini-version, and eight other looks, will be available to shop on H&M's website and in select stores on May 25 (tomorrow) as a pre-drop.

The full collection will launch on November 7, and Kendall has caused a furore of excitement to erupt after showing off the beautiful item. The capsule will also include ready-to-wear, accessories and menswear. 

Paris-based Giambattista Valli is a master of beauty and sophistication, and now you can pop into H&M and say you've flaunted the same outfit as Kendall Jenner.

The limited edition of nine looks, as well as a few accessories, will go live in selected stores and online at the end of this year, and the countdown has officially begun.

The leaders of Cannes Film Festival have signed an historic gender equality pledge promising to make the selection process more transparent going forward. 

It comes after a number of female film stars came together to stage a protest against gender discrimination in the industry on the festival red carpet over the weekend. 

Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and Selma Hayek were among those who took part in the demonstration on Saturday, which saw a group of actresses and film-makers link arms as they walked the red carpet. 

Speaking to reporters, Cate Blanchette made a powerful speech about the importance of the cause. 

"Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of the industry says otherwise," she declared.

"We are 82 women, representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946. In the same period, 1,688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs."

Cannes director Thierry Fremaux signed the pledge in front of a large crowd as the nine-member jury, which included Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and Ava DuVernay, watched on from the front row.

 Mr Fremaux said: “We hope that Cannes will welcome these new initiatives. We hope that it will reinforce the realisation that the world is not the same anymore. The world has changed.

“We must question our history and our habits.”

Cannes is first film festival to signed the pledge but it is expected that others will follow suit.

Currently cruising around on a yacht in the French Riviera, suffice to say that Kourtney Kardashian's Thursday is probably going somewhat better than yours is. 

Yup, the 37-year-old reality TV star is right this moment spending a spot of down-time with her kids – Mason, six, Penelope, four, and 18-month-old Reign – on a sprawling boat on the Mediterranean.

She has also been joined by her mother Kris Jenner and Kris's long-term boyf, Corey Gamble, 35.

Scott Disick, the father of Kourt's children, was not in attendance. 

And just when we reckoned we couldn't get any more envious of her carefree holiday – Ms Kardashian this evening posted a selfie of her gorgeous gold bikini, showing off her pretty rockin' bod in the process. 

The snap has already garnered hundreds of thousands of likes, with many fans commenting that Kourtney looks all sorts of seriously amazing – especially considering she has had three children.

The star has said in the past that she works out up to five times a week with a personal trainer.

Hacks are a pretty common thing nowadays. 

There's beauty hacks, styling hacks, cleaning hacks, hair hacks… the list goes on and on.

But if you have like, a jazillion dollars in your bank account, like Kim Kardashian does, you wouldn't think she'd do this to her pricey designer dress.

The mother-of-two admitted on her app that she used tea bags to dye her dress so the mesh panel matched her skin tone better.

"We had just two hours before we left for Cannes, so we put Earl Grey tea bags in a sink and put the dress in for about 30 minutes to dye it,' she said.

But apparently, the ordeal didn't end there: "It took right up until the red carpet for it to dry. We had to blow-dry it right before I put it on and it was still a little damp — but it worked and it made the mesh a better match to my skin tone."

See, we're not the only ones that use hairdryers on our clothes seconds before we leave the house.

She jetted into the French Riviera earlier this week with her boyfriend Tyga in tow.

Later joined by her mother, Kris, and by her sister, Kim, Kylie Jenner is nevertheless ensuring that all eyes are on her this evening.

Attending a glamorous yacht-party, the teenager has opted for a sophisticated, sweeping sheer white skirt and matching crop-top.

Adorned with delicate beading, sequin and lace, underneath the items she wore over-sized white shorts and a white, criss-cross strap bra.

The 17-year-old reality TV star completed her look with white strappy sandals. 

 Kylie opted to wear her long, black hair down – much like she wore it last week in Miami, where she was launching a new outlet of the Sugar Factory.

Also attending the event, which is being hosted by Mail Online, is her mother Kris, 59.

Their respective boyfriends, rapper Tyga and music manager Corey Gamble, accompanied them for the evening.

Momager Kris is wearing a full-length grey gown which showed off plenty of cleavage. Tyga, 25, was bright and brilliant in a cream suit and white Converse runners. Cody, 34, decided on a black shirt, jacket, trousers and shoes.

Earlier today, both Kim Kardashian, 34, and Kris Jenner posted shots from Cannes. And Kylie, Kris, Tyga, and Cody all went out for an al fresco lunch together this afternoon at the five-star Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

This evening marks another event where Kylie and Tyga were happy to be seen in each other's company. The duo are believed to be dating for an almost year, but have yet to confirm their union, or comment publicly on it.

Still, as the teenager approaches her 18th birthday, which falls in August, the pair are evidently happier and more relaxed to be seen and photographed as a couple.

Her rapper superstar husband is due to take to the main stage at Glastonbury this Saturday, but Kim Kardashian has jetted into Europe via Cannes.

This morning, Kim, 34, took to Instagram to post a snap from her hotel balcony. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, it shows that the south of France is currently being drenched in gorgeous sunshine.

Kris was also eager to share her incredible morning-time vista: she showed a tree-lined avenue leading down to the harbour.

In her accompanying caption, the 59-year-old said she felt "blessed" and "grateful" to be there.

Last night, Ms Kardashian posted an image from dinner depicting what she has now dubbed the 'Cannes clique'. In the photograph she can be seen wearing a Torn by Ronny Kobo dress in burgundy, with her hair slicked back.

She is surrounded by her family.

Furthermore visible in the same photo is Kris's boyfriend Corey Gamble, E! presenter Ryan Seacrest, as well as US TV host Steve Harvey and his wife Marjorie and stepdaughter Lori. Significantly, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton evidently also popped along.

In the aftermath of his split from his long-term on-off girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, it was last month rumoured that Kris had been eager for her catwalk model daughter, Kendall, 19, and Monaco-resident Lewis to begin dating. 

Kris, Kim, and Kylie will all attend a number of premieres, exclusive events, and yacht parties this week. Kim will then fly on to Glastonbury to see her husband perform there.

This pair certainly won’t be stuck for cash, that’s for sure.

Mariah Carey is reportedly dating Australian billionaire, James Packer. The new couple have been spotted holding hands while holidaying in Italy.

So, just who is James Packer… aside from being one of the wealthiest men down under?

Mr Packer is the son of the late media mogul Kerry Packer. The 47-year-old inherited the family company which he sold and now owns a string of hotels and casinos.

As the 4th wealthiest person in Australia, he is worth an estimated €4 billion. This makes Mariah’s €440 million look like pocket change!

The couple are currently vacationing in Capri in Italy. According to TMZ they are staying on the casino mogul’s yacht before heading on to Cannes and then St. Tropez.

We can only imagine what Nick Cannon must be feeling right about now!

This is the first person that Mariah has been romantically linked with since her divorce from Nick last year.

Mariah also made headlines two week's ago when her brother spoke out, saying that despite not having seen his sister in two years, he was extremely worried about her alcohol abuse issues. Although, reports have suggested that Mariah’s siblings are simply looking for attention from their 45-year-old sister.

It definitely looks like she’s managing just fine to us!

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen the Limerick model on the runway, but that hasn’t stopped Madeline Mulqueen getting back to her roots this week.

The 24-year-old was on-hand to don a stunning bridal gown as part of the National Tailoring Academy's spectacular graduate showcase.

While it seems a low-key lifestyle is Madeline’s preferred choice, the gig certainly marks a change from the events we’ve grown used to seeing her and her Hollywood actor fiancé attend.

Certainly, the model and her 23-year-old beau Jack Raynor have been particularly prolific on the red-carpet recently.

The pair are, for example, only just back from the Cannes Film Festival. While there, Madeline also made us green with envy posting a photo of the their stunning view of the French Riviera on Twitter.

Ms Mulqueen has been on home-soil since the beginning of the month, being spotted at a handful of exclusive events in the capital. She also returned to Limerick earlier this week for some down-time.

The wedding dress she wore today was designed by the talented Jennifer Young, who was the recipient of the Excellence In Craftsmanship accolade for her striking Serenade bridal collection.

What we would have given for a ticket…

The 22nd annual amFar Cinema Against AIDS Gala took place at the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc last night. It's always been one of the biggest events of the Cannes Film Festival line-up, and the gala definitely looked like the place to be.

Kendall Jenner was undoubtedly the style queen of the evening in a mauve Calvin Klein crop top and skirt:

Once she got inside though, she was joined by countless other celebrities and models including Jourdann Dunn, Lara Stone, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, Eva Longoria and Joan Smalls, for an evening of wild dancing.

We're loving these candid photos – they remind us of our teen disco days, though without the platform Skechers and butterfly clips…

Karlie's iridescent sparkling Tom Ford dress was another big hit, with its choker-style cut around the neck.

Although camera phones seemed to be restricted on the night, a few behind-the-scenes selfies did make it to Instagram,as always. Doutzen posted this picture of herself, Eva, Karlie, Lara and fellow L'Oreal model Natasha Poly:

She raised eyebrows when she jetted into Cannes on Sunday to mingle with A-listers including Rachel Weisz, Sienna Miller, and Miranda Kerr, but Ferne McCann has proven that she was doing more than merely making up the numbers.

Indeed, it has now been revealed that the Towie celeb was in the south of France for a series of exciting get-togethers with leading film executives. 

"Ferne can't believe her luck. She was flown out for a lucrative meeting at the plush La Tonnelle restaurant," says an insider tells The Mirror today.

"She's always dreamed of being an actress, so she's really excited."

Yesterday, she attended a swish boat party wearing a nude wrap dress by Topshop and an YSL clutch. Meanwhile, on Monday night she wore a €200 black beaded dress from H&M when she attended a bash at The Carlton Hotel.

New Media Law director Ian Penman has since confirmed to The Mirror: "We are currently negotiating something for Ferne in Cannes."

The reality TV star split from her boyfriend of five-years Charlie Sims, also a Towie cast member, in March – after he dumped her on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, the move shocked Ferne.

She told Closer magazine recently: ''I thought my life was mapped out.

''Me and Charlie were looking at moving in and I imagined I'd be married by the age of 25 and ready to have kids.

''One night I went to bed, happily in a relationship the next, it was all over – and on social media. It was hard.''

Paris Hilton was today en route to Liverpool from London, but rather than opt for a helicopter or chauffeur-driven car, the reality TV star and socialite decided to make the three-hour journey via train.

 

Next stop – Liverpool!

A photo posted by Paris Hilton (@parishilton) on

Sitting comfortably in a Virgin first-class carriage this morning, the 34-year-old happily posted pictures to her Instagram account of her unassuming commute.

Paris, who is worth €90m, would have paid as little as €100 for her ticket.

She is in the UK to promote her new perfume and this afternoon is at a branch of Superdrug in Liverpool to meet and greet fans.

Incredibly this is her 18th fragrance in just 11 years – her very first offering, Paris Hilton for women, was released back in 2004 at the height of her fame and went on to be an international best-seller.

Yesterday, the heiress also treated herself to a stealth London shopping spree: donning a short, dark wig and giant sunglasses she hit Topshop’s flagship store on Oxford Circus.

Wearing comfortable-looking skinny jeans and a €155 Johnson herringbone bow sweater, she picked up a haul of accessories and clothing – all packed into six large carrier-bags.

She’s clearly a big Topshop fan too. “Always find the cutest clothes and accessories there!” she said of the Philip Green-owned store afterwards.

 

Ms Hilton only arrived in London from Los Angeles yesterday – and came with no fewer than eight suitcases for her trip.

After her UK stopover, she travels to Cannes for a DJ gig before moving on to Mexico. Her new single, High Off My Love, is released on Friday.

The Instagram drama is never ending with Kanye, as apparently the rapper now wants to redesign the social media site.

Kanye was boasting about his many skills again, when he called himself an Instagram expert because he spends so much time on the site. Ok.

Kanye was sharing his thoughts at Cannes, when he revealed that he had suggested to Instagram CEO, Kevin Systrom, to let him redo the site.

“Why don’t you let us redo Instagram? Now, you know, Instagram is nice. It’s nice looking—I’m not knocking it. But in general, everyone spends all of their time looking at their screens or their phones.”

Of course, Kanye didn’t give exact specificiations of what he would do to the site; “Just as a simple task, we could clean that up.”

These comments don’t come long after the whole Anne Leibovitz drama, which was quickly resolved with a joint statement from both the photographer and rapper yesterday

Well, we don’t see him overtaking Instagram anytime soon, we have to admit we would love to see what the rapper would do to the social media site.
