What I love about color blocking is that it’s an easy way to wear a lot of color without looking, well, crazy. Check out my top five celebs at the Cannes Film Festival in color blocked evening gowns that looked absolutely gorgeous in this modern style. And while black and white is THE color combination this season, I love how Marion Cotillard and Jessica Biel added in some sunny yellow.
