Rachel Feinstein and Cindy Sherman

Best Dressed, Check Mates: We can’t tell if this was a coordinated gimmick or happy accident: artists Rachel Feinstein and Cindy Sherman showed up to MOMA’s Party in the Garden—both wearing a long checkered dress by Marc Jacobs. If it was a surprise, they certainly didn’t show it: the pair smiled for the cameras together.

Carey Mulligan

Best Dressed, Winner of the Week: The toast of Cannes went uncontested to Mulligan, who attended the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis in a black and white dress by Vionnet and Brian Atwood sandals.

Pascal Le Segretain

Jennifer Lawrence

Best Dressed, Power Peplum: The Oscar-winner went for a sleek black-and-white column dress by Christian Dior. She liked the dress so much that she wore it in a different color to a Hunger Games event later that same day. Best Dressed, Power Peplum: Jennifer Lawrence

Jessica Chastain

Best Dressed, Channeling Liz: Jessica Chastain provided a blank canvas for her sapphire Bulgari necklace from the Elizabeth Taylor Collection—in the form of her simple, white Versace dress. “It was so thrilling to wear it, but I was overwhelmed, too,” she said of the necklace afterward. “It was a little scary. I was the first person to wear it since Elizabeth. I felt as if I was able to spend the day with her today by wearing the necklace.”

Anita Kravos

Worst Dressed, Shlubbiest Person at Cannes: The actress looked like she was in her boyfriend’s jeans and shirt at a photo call for La Grande Bellezza—and her nonchalant pose didn’t help.
