Hot Off The Red Carpet: Cannes Approved Earrings

Is there anything more glamorous than the Cannes Film Festival?! Every May the beautiful people of Hollywood decamp to Europe for a week of photo calls, red carpet appearances and film premieres in the sun soaked French Riviera.

Fashion is always a big talking point at the Cannes. This year we were crushing on Blake Lively’s flawless maternity style, Kristen Stewart’s grungy glam and Lilly Rose Deep’s effortless cool.

But of course, the thing we were most interested in was the jewels! Nothing gets us more excited than a new red carpet trend and this year at Cannes it was all about the statement earring.

Here’s the low down on the earring styles our fav actresses were rocking at the festival, and the pieces you’ll need from H Samuel to recreate their looks – just in time for wedding season!

Trend 1: The Ear Jacket

Anna Kendrick & Justin Timberlake Blake Lively

Drop earrings are a firm favourite on the red carpet; they’re the perfect complement to those plunging neck lines and pristine up-dos. But instead of an all-out candelabra or long-drop earring, fashion forward starlets opted for shorter ear jackets at Cannes. Think Blake Lively in that serene, blue mermaid dress at ‘The BFG’ premier, or Anna Kendrick as she cozied up to Justin Timberlake at the opening night gala.

Recreate their style with these picks from our collection:

Trend 2: The Climber

At Cannes, Climbers were fierce and futuristic, without all that extra weight pulling on your ear-lobes!

Trend 3: The Cuff

Kirsten Stewart

We couldn’t take our eyes off Kristen Stewart at the ‘Personal Shopper’ premiere. Everything from the smoky red eye-shadow to the undone curls was rock-chick perfection – not to mention that ear cuff, we’re obsessed!

Bring a little of Kristen’s edgy style to your jewellery box with these ear cuffs from H.Samuel.
