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 experience in fashion-crushing have taught me that the old cliche is true, and that it really, truly is the Gallic who have the best style of all. As such, Cannes is known for its high-caliber glamour, and the attendees from across the way are well-suited to do as the natives. We’ve been closely following every look from the 11-day event, and now that it’s come to a close, it’s time to analyze the very best of hair and makeup straight from the shores of the Riviera.
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 waist was perfectly suited to her enhanced figure — and new cleavage! The fabric fell in tiny accordion pleats to the floor, with a daring (hey, for a pregnant lady) up-to-there slit and elaborate strapping on the back. Perfection! She looked stunning, but also comfortable in the roomy dress, and though hubby Jim Toth was nowhere to be seen, Reese seemed perfectly at ease on the arm of her co-star Matthew McConaughey. I mean, who wouldn’t?
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!
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 they looked!
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.
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 do you think?
