Fashion Rumors From The Cannes Red Carpet

Every year, actors and actresses head across the ocean to France for the Cannes Film Festival, a week of press events, red carpet moments, and yacht parties. While some people will focus on the actual movies, it’s really the fashion choices that are most important. Let’s break this down. When actresses all show up to promote their latest films, designers have a major opportunity, because between all the press conferences and red carpet premieres, each star will be photographed countless times. Designers petition stylists to dress celebrity clients, and if their creations are spotted (and loved) on a Cannes red carpet, the label gets a major publicity boost. Much like how Academy Awards and Golden Globes dresses are rehashed for years to come, thousands of images of the gowns worn during the Cannes Film Festival will run in tabloids, magazines, fashion blogs, and celebrity gossip sites for the next few months, resulting in eyes all over the world ogling a designer’s creation.

If you’re mid-breakfast, you might want to skip this post. One of the films that debuted at this week’s Cannes Film Festival is “Antichrist,” the latest from director Lars Von Trier. Since the screening yesterday, everyone has been talking about how the movie crosses the line of what’s appropriate for “mainstream” cinema. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe, the film is about a couple who, while mourning the death of their young son, mutilate each other in vile, graphic, despicable ways.

“Gainsbourg hits Dafoe so hard in the testicles with a plank of wood that he lapses into a coma. He ejaculates blood when she masturbates him. She drills a hole through his leg before tying him to a rock. But the scene that has caused the most disquiet is the close-up of Gainsbourg’s character cutting off her clitoris with a rusty pair of scissors.”
