The Cannes Film Festival is where celebs are supposed to bring their A game. Not their A- game, but their A+ game. That’s because they’re not simply on the red carpet at some crappy Hollywood premiere — they’re on the world’s snotty stage! In France! France! And they’re competing against French and Italian starlets in the glamour game, too. As such, these girls have some really intense gown-age in tow — with everything from lacy cut outs, to feathers, to bright colors at their disposal. We survey the successes — and some of the Cannes chaff, after the jump.
Try as we might to deny it, women have way more in common with their mothers than any of us are willing to admit. They also say that if you want to know what a lady will look like when she’s older, take a look at the one she came out of. So when I saw this picture of Kristen Stewart’s mother, Jules, I practically laughed out loud. Look no further: Kristen is the spitting image of her filmmaker mom, from the straight dark hair and light green eyes to the knowing half-smirk, except that I think Jules just might have the upper hand on her famous daughter when it comes to coolness. KStew’s insouciant attitude and offbeat, punky style make much more sense to me now that I see where she’s coming from. [Hollywood Reporter]
Are you excited for the new film adaptation of “On The Road”? I feel pretty impartial about it, but it’s probably because I’m just not that into Kerouac. I would assume that those who are probably have very strong feelings about it one way or another. I am looking forward to seeing how the movie turns out given the ambitious material. I’m also curious to see Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst in their roles — from the looks of the Cannes photocall for the film, the two have gotten pretty chummy. I usually love Kirsten’s style, but I just hated the drab Rodarte dress she wore to the Met Ball. Keep reading »
Kristen Stewart and Co. are doing the press rounds for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” so naturally there’s loads of fashion fodder to go around. The cast turned out for a photo call in Berlin today, and while Kristen’s dress was certainly less ostentatious than her risky look for the world premiere, the long Derek Lam sheath she chose was a bit of a deviation from the fashion norm. For me, the pattern errs on the side of Hot Topic, but it could just be the thick chained belt that’s eclipsing my vision. I have to say I love the fit of this dress, and while I’m not usually partial to a checkerboard pattern, I think the edgy look could have worked fabulously on punky Kristen had she shed the wide belt. I know you guys preferred Charlize’s look yesterday, but how is this red number working for you? [Just Jared]
Kristen Stewart donned a fierce leather skirt and bustier for a sexually charged photo shoot in the June issue of Elle magazine. And who’s that hunk in the slouchy suit and suspenders she’s cuddling up to? Oh yeah, that’s also Kristen Stewart. I must say I’m pretty into her masculine swagger. Which Kristen do you prefer? [Us Weekly]
“Snow White and the Huntsman” is poised to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, and it owes the pre-release fanfare not only to its subject (it is Snow White, after all) but also to its key cast of bonafide eye candy: Kristen Stewart (hot), Chris Hemsworth (hotter), and Charlize Theron (hottest).
