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 among feminists. Whether Cannes has provided warranted grounds for contention is still up in the air. A petition hosted on Change.org entitled “Cannes Film Festival: Where Are The Women Directors?” has garnered over 2,000 signees, with feminist icon Gloria Steinem, “The Vagina Monologues” playwright Eve Ensler, and award-winning Australian director Gillian Armstrong among them. However, last year’s nominations for the top prize featured four movies by women, while last month’s Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan had a heavy female presence, with many of the event’s 90 films both focusing on female protagonists and directed by women. At the time, Daryl Wein, the director of “Lola Versus” starring Greta Gerwig, said, “It’s a moment happening now for women in film.” Keep reading »

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 at the occasion, like Eva Longoria’s endless Marchesa, which I found reprehensible (why, Eva?).

However, exponentially more reprehensible than Eva’s inappropriate train are Cheryl’s comments from just a few days ago regarding the future of the deservedly controversial Chris Brown. Keep reading »

Kelis, owner of milkshake, bringer of boys to the yard, showed up at a Cannes event rocking this rainbow sequin striped ensemble, major hair, and a pose that says, “Go on. I dare you.” It may be a lot of look, but damn, I think she’s totally pulling it off. What do you think?

16 Male Celebs Who’ve Had The Worst Movie Hair Ever

I’m not sure what hair look Shia LaBeouf was going for at the “Lawless” premiere at Cannes this past weekend. It looks like he had one of those Brazilian treatments gone terribly wrong. It looks relaxed for certain. And crispy with gel. Also, is it too mean of me to point out that there is food in his teeth. Blergh. We can only hope that there is a film to blame for this hairstyle. He could not have done this on his own volition, could he? Having bad hair for a film would put Shia in pretty great company. Keep clicking to see the many other Hollywood actors who’ve rocked horrible hair for movie roles, some two or three or four times over.

Generally, I am not a fan of jumpsuits or Lady Skrillex hair (though I do love silently saying in my head, Girrrrrrrrrrrrl, you got Skrillex hair!). But somehow, I think this look, worn by Cassie — who, to be honest, had Lady Skrillex hair before Skrillex was even a thing — really works on her. I don’t know, though, it’s still a jumpsuit, and what is Cassie even doing at Cannes, anyway? Does this look work for her? You decide.

I love Tilda Swinton in all her strange, beautiful, androgynous, crazy-outfit-wearing glory, but I have to say I also like this version of Tilda: simple, streamlined, pretty. And I never thought I’d write this sentence, but Tilda’s outfit here is totally flattering and wearable–it would be a great choice for a hot summer day at the office. After the jump, we’ve got all the pieces to recreate her chic Cannes ensemble… Keep reading »

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 Longoria). The annual festival is synonymous, of course, with a particular brand of inimitable avant-garde chic — it’s impeccably artistic, breathtaking more often than not, and more than anything, distinctly European. Despite the visible correlation between the clothes and the films, Cannes has never featured a fashion show among its (nearly two weeks long) festivities before this year. Keep reading »

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

Bill Murray's plaid Cannes jacket

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 movie “Moonrise Kingdom” and appears to have brought along his own mini-camera to capture the occasion. As you do. Keep reading »

Vintage Style Inspiration: Brigitte Bardot At Cannes Film Festival

As the world’s longest-running and most prestigious film festival, Cannes has a lot of history behind it. Since the exclusive gathering was first established in 1946, the picturesque coastal town situated on the French Riviera has seen the most illustrious names in cinema walk its shores. Like its younger incarnations (Sundance, Tribeca, et al.), the focus is placed not on big-name blockbusters but on the more majestic side of film and its artistic quality. Notable repeat attendees include Catherine Deneuve, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Jane Birkin, Serge Gainsbourg, and — perhaps the most famous of faces associated with Cannes, or maybe even all of France (I mean, come on, she was the first woman to be Marianne) — Brigitte Bardot. The photographs of the sultry star exemplify the carefree, distinctly Gallic glamour of the beachside festival. Even if a ticket to Cannes isn’t in your (foreseeable) future, you can channel a bit of Bardot in your everyday life this summer, whether you’re basking on the sand or traversing the city streets.

I’m usually not a big fan of white formal dresses, mostly because they can easily make you look like you missed a turn on the way to your wedding, but I must say Jessica Chastain strikes just the right tone in this beautifully streamlined white gown she wore on the Cannes red carpet. The cut is modern and flattering, the scooped neckline adds sexiness, and I’m obsessed with the pockets. What do you think of this look?
