The 68th annual Cannes Film Festival was held from 13 to 24 May 2015. Over a series of 12 days, celebrities crept out from their crevices and dazzled the world with some of the best and worst fashion choices. We are by no means fashion experts, and have absolutely no right to judge any of these individuals, but were doing it anyway. Let the fashion commence: Emma Cloete & Monro Grier
KENDALL JENNER WHY ARE YOU SO FLAWLESS? That is all.
CHARLIZE THERON This homegrown beauty is looking fresh as a daisy. Not many can pull off yellow, but this Benoni born beauty is working it.
LUPITA NYONGO Lupita Nyongo always blows us away with her unique and classic style, but this time she just looks like a bedazzled salad leaf.
NAOMI WATTS Watts going on here? She had it so right from the waist up, unfortunately the bottom resembles a bad bathroom mat. It’s a no from us, Naomi.
ELENA LENINA Can we have a moment of silence for the hole in the ozen layer that is significantly bigger after all the hairspray needed for this updo. Fashion tip: this is a great hairstyle for short girls who would really like that extra length on special occasions.
LIYA KEBEDE We’re getting the feeling that she didn’t have a top to match the skirt, so she just wrapped tinsel around her body and thought no one would notice. Sorry, we noticed. Nice shoes though!
SIENNA MILLER We get that she’s going for the whole kite vibe, we just don’t understand why?
EMMA STONE It’s Emma Stone. In Christian Dior. But nobody really cares about the designer, let’s all be honest. Because it’s Emma Stone and she is just so fierce. Look at that pose, she’s basically Spiderwoman.
Matrics, if you still haven’t got around to getting ideas for the Matric dance, then hopefully this has provided some inspiration. If you feel you can rock tinsel or a kite with confidence, then you FLAUNT IT!

Jenna MISS LA ROCHELLE We had the privilege of speaking to the royalty of La Rochelle, Jenna Laughton, Miss La Rochelle 2015. We asked her a few questions about what it has been like as Miss La Rochelle and her plans for the future. Here are some of the questions that were asked and her answers.

My cell phone: I can’t go anywhere without it. I need to be able to contact my parents and know exactly what’s going on in the world of social media.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT SHOULD EVERY GIRL CARRY IN HER HANDBAG? Every girl has to have some lip-ice, perfume - smelling sweet always creates a good first impression, hand-sanitizer - especially when doing Biology practicals, and a small snack - you know, in-case you get a bit peckish. I always

“I remember trying my best to walk, in the most uncomfortable heels ever, across the stage without tripping.” I think after I said that, even I had a little chuckle to myself - who says that as their opening line? I also really loved the photoshoot, it was lots of fun and I think we had some great bonding sessions there. I honestly was so scared to walk in high heels and surprisingly I think I got the hang of it. Dancing back stage and rushing to get my dress and hair ready for the next scene was a highlight. Miss. La Rochelle was such an amazing experience I will never forget. Especially all thhe laughs and memories I made along the way.

relationship with God. They keep me going, keep me smiling and motivate me to be the best I can be. Not only that, but they have shaped me into who I am today by just loving and accepting me the way I am and I owe them the world for that. Jesus is my reason to live and I know that He has my life all planned out, all I have to do is place my faith in Him and go with it.
they never last too long though!
We’ve all heard it a million times, but true beauty definitely comes from within. Always being kind, compassionate and sensitive to others is what will win you their heart, their admiration and loyalty.
