It was very difficult selecting only 16 dresses for this post. Cannes 2018 was a vibrant showcase of modernized sequins, extravagant textures and structures, and classic suits. Perhaps the most beautiful things about this year’s festival was the diversity of women on the red carpet. From Cindy Bruna’s sexy structured suit and Wang Likun’s ice princess gown to Ming Xi’s delicate sequined dress and Naomi Campbell’s stunning teal ensemble, it was great to see so many women of color on the red carpet.

If you google Roman and Williams Guild, you’ll fine the tagline “Design, French Food and Flowers.” Um can you think of a better combination? I dare you. This Soho gem was the perfect place to meet photographer, Caitee Smith, for the first time.  I’m a bit of a micromanager and also pretty obsessive compulsive which does not make for the most easy to work with wannabe blogger girlfriend (sorry babe, I swear I didn’t mean to almost push you in front of a taxi for cutting off my feet in a picture) so I started looking for an affordable professional whose style I thought was similar to mine. After a bit of digging around the internet, I landed upon Caitee and we set up a time to meet for outfit and scenery pics at Roman and Williams.

Roman and Williams features gorgeous industrial influenced furniture, floral “sculptures” by Emily Thompson, and a cafe called La Mercerie.
