Kelly Brook turned up! This is exciting because, last year, she retweeted me, so now we are besties and I feel a sisterly pride whenever I see her on the TV / magazines / movies. Okay, well, when I see her in movies I feel shock and wonderment at how she is still pretending to act, but that’s besides the point.

These two lovely women are, says Getty, Sylvie Hoarau (right) and Aurelie Saada (left) of French duo Brigitte. Serious props to Sylvie for bringing her specs to the red carpet – I rarely wear mine on nights out, squinting instead, but I really feel that all I need to push me to bring mine out of the optical closet is more inspiration in the form of stylish women on the red carpet in their glasses. Love.

Now, don’t act like you knew Ronan Keating was in Cannes. He’s starring in a new movie entitled, wait for it, Goddess, about a woman who dreams of singing stardom but is stuck, wait for it, on the farm. I know, genius. On his right, above, is Laura Michelle Kelly, who somehow (and suddenly) lost four stone in the two days before the above presscall and didn’t have time to buy herself any clothes that fit.

Cheryl’s Stephane Rolland dress definitely garnered the most column inches, and seemed to divide the fashion jury firmly down the middle. For my part, you should know by now how I feel about mermaid dresses, so I’m a big fat meh on this one. Try harder, Cheryl – and, for the record, making your mermaid dress bigger does not equal trying harder.

Liu Wen here is one of China’s big model hopes – she’s one of the most successful Chinese models in history, and I love this dress on her. I felt as if I should share. Now, bonus Diane and Josh:

Happy Tuesday, kittens!

Oh c’mon, you didn’t expect any real (reel?) news, did you? My bad – check out Donald’s Cannes lowdown here.
