Diane was definitely having a moment during the Cannes film festival this past week- from premieres in Valli, to galas in Prabal and Chanel, and press junkets in a very daring (but oh, so perfect) Versus mini-dress- she stole the spotlight at every single event, red carpet or not. Oh, and her perfect accessory during the festival? Her eternally scruffy-cute boyfriend Pacey, I mean, Mr. Joshua Jackson. File as It girl status, well-deserved!

Now, don't get too excited. I don't have any special announcements to make (sorry, Mom) but considering that it is wedding season (and countless friends of mine will be walking down the aisle come winter) I couldn't help but feature my take on a ridiculously extravagant wedding. Well, actually, there are five fetes below to be exact, (more is more right?) ranging the wedding spectrum from even the most non-conformist of brides (Balmain tux, hello) to a classic look that would be fit for any princess (Vera to the rescue!) All of course feature the fabulous wedding invitations from Wedding Paper Divas or as I like to call it, stationary heaven. No matter what kind of bride you are (or whatever kind of parties you throw) their stationary is the perfect precursor (and ending- see their lovely thank you cards) to every unforgettable fete. Because we all know that without the right invite... there would be no party to attend! Don't forget to share you favorite fete in the comments section. File this one as party on.
THE LOCATION: A private garden chateau on the outskirts of Paris
THE CAKE: Gilded, just like Marie Antoinette's finest china
THE DRESS: Dior, but of course darling; it's Paris
THE LOCATION: Church ceremony with reception to follow at a loft space, bedecked in hydrangeas
THE CAKE: A throw on tradition- cupcakes, with sparkles for good effect
THE DRESS: Vera, Vera, Vera or in this case the style Frea, Frea, Frea
THE LOCATION: The Palace, NYC; black-tie dress, even for the tables
THE CAKE: Covered in pearls, just like Chanel's Spring 2012 runway
THE DRESS: Who says the bride can't wear a tux, too? Balmain, I do, baby
THE LOCATION: The quite fabulous St. Bartholomew's church in Chodovice, Eastern Bohemia
THE CAKE: Rustic, simple, delicious
THE DRESS: Cascading Vera Wang pleated ruffles in the hottest color for fall brides- nude
THE LOCATION: The private gardens behind the museum at Villa Borghese in Rome
THE CAKE: Butterfly flourishes instead of flowers
THE DRESS: When in Rome, do as the Romans do- that means Valentino, amici

Cotton candy sweetness.
Is that Wang? #TotesWang
Ooooh! Mama need.
Couldn't be any cooler.
One of the cutest versions of a peplum that I've ever laid eyes on.
Pink hair, don't care.
Sunnies with matching hair.
Never met a piece of lucite I didn't love.
Girlies! And Natalie Joos again too!
Anything with skulls on it is instantly better.
Patches the leopard, over and out.

My weekend? Filled with mint Gap Body bralettes, creating new blog posts and pouring over the Chanel Resort collection (stay tuned for its fabulousness), hanging out with the best roommate ever (Sir Leo Jones) and of course...having to decide which pair of Jeffrey Campbell wedge sneakers to return to Nasty Gal. Torture. File as happy weekend, loves.

Stripes for life.
Expertly mixed prints if I must say.
It's Natalie Joos! In her always fab mixed and matched prints.
New favorite purse color.
Crop tops are the new calf-length skirt.
Just bare enough.
Ten bucks says they meant to coordinate their outfits.
DYING to get my hands on a pair of overalls.
Matching bag and skirt? Why not?
That Jimmy Choo purse is divine.
Everyone needs a floral blazer.

I must say that my days this week have really been lacking in the glamour department. Just last weekend, I had a feeling that I was right on the edge of a major style slump (this self-imposed "budget" is killing me), when blam (totally just yelled this is my head) The Met Gala hit! (Relive last years by clicking here.)
Although my daily work wear doesn't fall anywhere close to what the fab ladies above are wearing, it's definitely given me the push to stop wearing my go-to J Brand jeans every. single. day. But the real debate around the office (not involving my inability to pick a cute outfit this week) has been who was deserving of the best dressed title at this years Met Ball. And you know I had an opinion on that. Keep reading after the jump to see my favorite for this year! File as too much.
