Best un-makeup makeup look: Melanie Thierry. The rumored future face of a yet-to-be-announced YSL fragrance, Thierry made a strong case for sticking to a neutral makeup palette.

Best channeling of Princess Leia: Fan Bingbing. The force is clearly with Chinese actress Bingbing who rocked matching braided ear buns at Cannes.

Best nude lip: Salma Hayek. Hayek’s creamy beige lip was subtle, but smoldering.

Best use of black eyeliner: Evangeline Lilly. Lilly should clearly choose black eyeliner, which she used to beautiful effect on the Cannes red carpet, as her stranded island beauty product pick.

Best retro ‘do: Kirsten Dunst. Dunst’s wavy side-swept bob recalled her Marion Davies character in The Cat’s Meow.

Best short cut: Michelle Williams. An updated version of the Gwyneth Sliding Doors haircut that I tried hard to copy in college; Williams’ version makes me want to once again take scissors to my hair.

Best sideways ‘do: Roxane Mesquida. I appreciate any hairstyle that can be recreated with the help of a banana clip so kudos goes to French actress Mesquida for her heavily gelled ‘80s homage.

Best all-around jaw-dropping beauty: Naomi Campbell. Unbelievably, Campbell just turned forty. True story.

Best example of makeup and fashion coordination: Emily Blunt. Matching your lipstick to your dress may be a very dated concept, but Blunt is proof that once in a while it actually works.

Best use of hair extensions: Haley Bennett. Bennett’s natural bob got a major boost to create this ‘60s-era, fembot-esque swingy high ponytail.

Best bun: Naomi Watts. Sometimes, simplicity — this time, that means a sleek, center-parted low bun — rules.

Best use of a hair accessory: Eva Herzigova and Diane Kruger. This category was simply too close to call — Herzigova’s chunky diamante headband and Kruger’s sparkling leaf barrette were hair accessory high points.

Best Brigitte Bardot moment: Louise Bourgoin. A teased and curled voluminous half-updo with manicured fringe was a clear homage to French goddess of cinema Bardot. That Bourgoin is also blonde and, er, buxom helped.

Best undone updo: Margherita Missoni. When it comes to fashion, an appreciation of laid-back luxury is in Missoni’s genes. And her purposefully messy updo complements the vibe perfectly.
