It could very well be illegal to be that hot. Transformers superbabe, Megan Fox, has been lighting the world on fire at various premieres for her latest summer blockbuster, but last night’s Los Angeles opening won the grand prize.

Stunning the photogs and red carpet looky-loos with her sultry style, Fox wore a toga-inspired frock from Kaufman Franco and accessorized with Dior diamonds to die for.

A pair of icy diamond hoops were just the beginning of a perfectly accessorized ensemble. Adding to the sparkle was a zebra-striped right hand ring and two stunning diamond cuffs.

It doesn’t get much better than that, right?

And while many young stars attended the glittering premiere, none could hold a candle to FHM’s #2 sexiest woman. Although a golden Vanessa Manillo and pretty in pink Kristen Cavalari gave it an A for effort.

You won’t see my butt in the seat for this summer movie offering (I’m SO not their target audience), but I will most definitely keep the Fox hunt going. Stay tuned…

What do you guys think of her style? Summertime sexy or trying to hard?

Cannes you dig it? The yachts are docked, the champagne is flowing and the jewelry is already incroyable as the 62nd annual Cannes Film Festival gets underway in the south of France this week.

I just love this film festival. Known for booing crowds and unmatched extravagance, it’s no wonder the fashion police are on high alert as the world’s biggest stars put their best ‘pied’ forward.

And while many fashion sponsors like Fendi and Swarovski have bowed out this year due to that pesky economy, thank the skies above that Chopard has hung in there. Why? Because they designed 62 couture pieces of jewelry this year to be worn by The Croisette’s biggest stars.








Pixar’s latest entry, UP, already premiered and Chopard made big jewelry statements on co-President, Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele and model du jour Eugenia Silva.

Cannes juror and Sean Penn ex, Robin Wright Penn, is quite simply always a stunner and tonight was no exception as she appeared in a silvery gown with diamond spray earrings. Who knows how much she had to put up with all these years, but it certainly doesn’t show. Bravo.

Fellow juror, Shu Qi, upped the ante with a vintage diamond statement piece, and gemstone earrings dusted the shoulders of beauties Alessia Piovan and Jaydy Michel.








And this is just the beginning, jewelry hounds. Cannes darling, Quentin Tarrantino, is here with his Brad Pitt starrer, Inglorious Basterds, and everyone is scrambling to make an appearance.

So stick with Jewelry.com to see all the crazy Croisette fashion carnage as the week progresses.

Diamonds and spray-tans and yachts! Mon Dieu!
