When you're a jury member at the Cannes Film Festival, like Nicole Kidman was for 2013's big event, stepping up your beauty and style A-game comes with the territory. Last year, fashion darling Diane Kruger made a sartorial impression for her turn in the jury, and this year, Nicole aimed to please and then some. From an impressively structured pompadour ponytail to some braided updos that will leave you in awe, see all of Nicole's Cannes beauty looks (including her makeup and nails) up close from every angle.
When it comes to Cannes Film Festival, some people are focused on the actors, others on the fashion, but we are zooming in on the manicures. The glamorous dresses call for equally exciting nail designs. Get an up close look at the best nail art and polish spotted in the South of France.

Gwyneth Paltrow has a lot to offer: she's talented, she has a great sense of humor, she can sing, she dresses well, and she might have the most flawless skin we've ever seen. She attributes her glowing complexion to celebrity esthetician Sonya Dakar, who regularly prepares Gwyneth for big events with an apple stem cell facial.
We ventured to Beverly Hills to meet with Sonya, learn the key components of the facial, and even get tips on how to create a version for ourselves at home. Best of all, the ingredients you need can be found at your local supermarket. Now there's no excuse not to give this a try.
To try some of Gwyneth's favorite products, you can shop them on Sonya's site.

Barrettes aren't just for schoolgirls or a means to mask not-so-stellar hair moments anymore. In recent weeks, stars like Nicole Kidman, Cara Delevingne, and Zooey Deschanel have all showed just how versatile and chic a barrette (or barrette set) can be. Get tips for re-creating their styles below and shop a variety of barrettes, too.
- Traditional with a twist: These little accessories are the perfect blend of functional and stylish, as Nicole showcased at the Cannes Film Festival. Style the top of your hair with plenty of volume, slick the sides toward the back, and secure with an embellished barrette or two.
- In alignment: Two barrettes stacked on top of each other make for an interesting (and functional) look, like Cara's accented sideswept style. Stacking also looks gorgeous with a handful of bobby pins.
- Classic with curls: Zooey displayed the easiest and most classic way to wear your barrette: in a chic half-updo. Add some loose curls to your hair before teasing around the crown. Gather the hair from your ears up at the back of your head and secure with your barrette. The bolder the better.
