You Look Wonderful Tonight, Second Edition

Back in May, Musette paid tribute to four women who stole the red carpet thanks to their unforgettable frocks. Since then, the CFDA has partied, the glamorous headed to Cannes, and the awards season celebrated a beautiful newcomer. Enjoy the dresses that made these nights so wonderful.

Caroline Trentini in vintage Thierry Mugler at the CFDA Party of the Year
At a party that put an emphasis on all things super-heroic, model Caroline Trentini suitably embodied one part good, one part evil in harsh black velvet and a swept up bun. This Brazilian bombshell took a risk that paid off in a 90's get-up, complete with dark eyes and an elaborately shaped dress. Think Cat Woman with a demure twist.

Marion Cotillard in Chanel Haute Couture at the Bafta Awards

Bless the birth of a true screen siren-and of the Academy Award winning, La Vie En Rose singing, hopelessly chic variety no less! For her role as Edith Piaf, Marion Cotillard received standing ovations around the world, but it was her impeccable appearance at the Bafta's that really made Musette want to stand up and clap.

Karen Elson and Jack White, both in Marc Jacobs at the CFDA Party of the YearIt's no secret that Jack White loves red headed women, and with Karen Elson as his wife he's scored top of the class. The two made their grand entrance at the Met in pure style, Elson shined in ruffles and a fringed bag, while Jack's transformation from rock star to gentleman is given two thumbs up. If you can't get enough of this darling couple, check out September's British Vogue, featuring Elson on the cover.

Natalie Portman in Balmain and Lanvin at the Cannes Film Festival

Pint-sized Portman always gets it right, favouring Lanvin by night and casual-cool by day. Pictured here in a Balmain dress, bolero by Lanvin, and personally designed animal-friendly footwear, Natalie took the Cannes cake. With her beau, singer Devendra Banhart, beaming from the sidelines, Little Miss Natalie Portman proved she can make a grown man cry.
