While all eyes are on Cannes (and why wouldn’t they be, have you seen Lupita twirling up and down the coast), on our side of the pond, one
star is having a heck of a stylish week: Darby Stanchfield. From her turn in purple to her matchy-matchy accessories, she’s earned her spot as this week’s best dressed star. Our editors break down why…

Jackie Fields, Beauty Editor: Auburn hair? Check. Cherry lips and nails? Did. Crimson The 2nd Skin Co.dress and Kurt Geiger pumps? Duh. Pearlized, multi-color Koture clutch? Swoon. They say blondes have more fun, but I think red heads do after seeing the star shut it down in head-to-toe shades of rouge. And I’m loving this silhouette, especially the bow detail at the neckline, which she so perfectly showed off with a side-swept do.

Lindsay Schallon, Senior Style Editor: How do you take an LBD from eh to amazing? Start with a dress that has unexpected details, like a mockneck collar and flap pockets, as this Rachel Zoe “Portia” number does. Match your mani to your pedi and your lace-up sandals. Then, turn it out in a headband braid that’s the perfect amount of polished and textured. Boom — everything about this look is winning.

Brittany Talarico, Style News Editor: Plum is a tricky color to pull off, unless you’re Darby, who masters the shade in a sheer romantic Rhea Costa design at Paley Fest (a look you would never find in Abby Whelan’s closet). She goes classic with her accessories — Kurt Geiger pumps and a Palter DeLiso clutch, plus Graziela Gems jewels. And her fiery red hair is obviously flawless.
