9 Photos Of Ryan Gosling Looking Hot Promoting “Lost River” At Cannes

Do I really need a reason to post this many photos of Ryan Gosling standing at the press call for his directorial debut, “Lost River,” at the Cannes Film Festival? Dude is like a comet, I can’t be sure when I’m going to see his gorgeous face and muscular arms again, considering he’s been off…

Creepy Cannes Journalist “Pranks” America Ferrera On The Red Carpet

Ukrainian “journalist” Vitalii Sediuk is at it again. The somewhat notorious prankster — who perhaps most famously planted a kiss on Will Smith at the premiere of “Men In Black 3″ in 2012 — managed to make it onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of “How To Train Your Dragon 2″…

Where Are All The Women Directors At Cannes? An Infographic Shows Just How Bad It Is

The Cannes Film Festival begins today in France. Movie stars along the French Riviera sounds lovely, of course. But Cannes, and every other film festival, is always a reminder of women director’s underrepresentation in the movie business. In the past decade at Cannes, there have been several years when ZERO female directors have had a…

Au Revoir, Cannes: The Best Hair & Makeup From The 2012 Cannes Film Festival

And just like that, the Cannes Film Festival is over. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad, and you’d be lying if you said I wasn’t really lame for feeling that way. Every year, I look so forward to the cutting-edge dresses and the high concentration of preternatural French cool. My years of…

Well Played: Reese Witherspoon At Her Cannes Film Premiere

The gossip rags got one thing right: Reese Witherspoon is most definitely pregnant. The radiant star turned up at Cannes on Saturday for the premiere of her film “Mud,” and she looked amazing (like, her top 10 good). The royal blue Versace gown she chose for the occasion was not only gorgeous, but the empire…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Closing Scenes From Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival ended over the weekend, and it went out with a bang, not with a whimper, if Diane Kruger’s gorgeous Christian Dior dress is any indication. Take a look at Kruger’s full gown, along with what everyone else wore to the festivities, after the jump!

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

I don’t know what it is about Cannes, but it really forces celebs to step up their game. At the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala earlier this week, Diane Kruger, Petra Nemcova, and uh, Tara Reid turned out to support the charity, and take a turn in some gorgeous gown. Click through to see how…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: More From The Cannes Red Carpet

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 i…

Caption This: What Are Nicole Kidman And Matthew McConaughey Talking About?

These two! They’re at Cannes (of course) at the premiere of “The Paperboy,” starring Kidman, McConaughey and a delicate little flower known as Zac Efron. I like to imagine they’re having an “attractive-off” and Kidman is chiding McConaughey for wearing a shirt. Or maybe she’s asking him why he left his bongos at home. What…

Cannes Film Festival Spurs Controversy And Disruptive Protest In Light Of A Lack Of Female Nominees

While we’ve been covering all of the fashion at Cannes, there seems to be a more unsavory undercurrent on the scene: in the 64 years of the festival, just one woman has claimed the most esteemed Palme d’Or award, and this year’s total lack of female directors in the awards’ lineup has sparked international backlash…

Well Played: Cheryl Cole Is Dipped In Red Feathers At Cannes

Cheryl Cole, the most internationally recognized member of the British girl group Girls Aloud, is very beautiful and very stylish (if, at times, a bit overdone). This Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture gown she wore to Sunday’s premiere of “Amour” is, well, fundamentally perfect — it’s lovely and show-stopping without being too bombastic for her role…

Well Played: Diane Kruger’s Metallic Cannes Look

Joshua Jackson should feel really good about being able to keep Diane Kruger on his arm. She is so pretty! And doesn’t she look absolutely stunning in this metallic Vivienne Westwood gown? And they look so in love, it’s gross. But uh, Joshua? Maybe you want to get a good shave?

Carine Roitfeld Will Present An All-Black Fashion Show Next Week At Cannes

Yesterday’s Cannes International Film Festival kickoff was rife with celebrities of every ilk, running the gamut from those whose various looks we await with bated breath (like the untouchable Marion Cotillard) to those who make us wonder why they’re even in attendance, let alone wearing an overblown dress with a ten-foot train (no thanks, Eva…

WTF Are You Wearing, Bill Murray? Oh, Who Cares, You Can Do Anything You Want

Bill Murray upstaged the rest of Cannes doing what he does best: being a lovable old coot who doesn’t give a fuck. I’m sure Anna Wintour is riding her senior editors as we speak figuring out how to get plaid-on-plaid-on-plaid in the next issue of Vogue.  Bill walked the red carpet for Wes Anderson’s new…

While Everyone Was Freaking Out About “Girls,” There Are Zero Films By Women At Cannes

For the past week, women’s media has pretty much been dominated by talk of Lena Dunham’s new show “Girls.” But newsflash! There’s other crap going on! Like the fact that this year’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival features absolutely zero films by women. That’s right: of the 23 films up for Cannes’ Very Important Palm D’Or

Cannes Rewards Cosmically Ambitious Movies With Awards

Last night, the Cannes Film Festival concluded with the Robert DeNiro-helmed jury handing out the awards for the best movies and acting on display at the festival. And I am sensing a theme: apparently, the jury was all about films that mixed everyday stories with, well, the fate of the universe. The coveted Palme d’Or…
