Welcome back to Cannes!
AISHWARYA RAI at the Slack Bay premiere
gown by Ali Younes
Bollywood stars always bring their A-game to Cannes, and I am here for it every single year. The sheer cape, the green eyeshadow – this gown is like Britney in the “Toxic” video, but with CLASS.
JESSICA CHASTAIN at the Money Monster premiere
gown by Alexander McQueen, necklace by Piaget
The color is a little dreary, or maybe it’s just rained every day for the last three weeks and so I need bright colors to cheer me up. But otherwise, this dress is a knockout and those embellishments are on POINT. The 1920s art deco feel of it works so well – those necklaces could have been too much, but the old Hollywood styling brings it all together.

I don’t really understand whether this is a coat or just a dress with a strange seam down the center, but I think I’m on board either way.
JULIANNE MOORE at the Chopard Trophy Ceremony
gown and purse by Alexander McQueen, jewelry by Chopard
J.Mo at her best. Killing it with the plunging neckline/sheer fabric combo. She’s got the commanding presence required to wear those forty-five billion karat earrings with a gown that already sparkles from top to bottom.

gown by Louis Vuitton
*sings* Workin’ at the car wash!
AMAL CLOONEY and GEORGE CLOONEY at the Money Monster premiere
gown by Atelier Versace, earrings by Cartier
Amal Clooney is like a Disney princess who got a great education and a phenomenal career and then after years of self-actualized fulfillment was like, okay, fine, I’ll marry the prince, whatever.
BELLA HADID at the Dior party
dress, purse, and shoes by Dior
So simple, but also somehow space-age chic, with those fantastic lines and all that structure. Also, I commend anyone who can stand in relatively skinny heels on gravel and not be falling flat on her ass. I for one do not possess that particular skill.
CHARLIZE THERON at the Dior party
dress, jewelry, purse, and shoes by Dior
The shoes are distracting, and a more colorful lip wouldn’t have hurt, but this is still chic as all hell.
NAOMI WATTS at the Money Monster premiere
gown by Michael Kors
Meh. Saggy and forgettable.
NAOMI WATTS at the Vanity Fair dinner
dress by Victoria Beckham, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
I’m all for breaking rules about which colors can be worn with which, but this shiny white absolutely cannot be worn with that matte ivory. It’s making my brain hurt.
CAITRIONA BALFE at the Money Monster premiere
gown by Louis Vuitton
I’m a little underwhelmed, but the ear cuff is pretty fucking great.
KIRSTEN DUNST at the Chopard Trophy Ceremony
gown by Schiaparelli, jewelry by Chopard
SPOONS, YOU GUYS. SHE’S WEARING SPOONS ALL OVER HER DRESS. SPOONS, AND CHOPARD DIAMONDS. WHERE AM I? WHAT IS HAPPENING?
KENDALL JENNER at the Magnum party
gown by Versace, shoes by Stuart Weitzman
Everything about this is just a little off.
EVA LONGORIA at the Money Monster premiere
gown by Pamella Roland, necklace by Messika
Not exactly reinventing the wheel, are we?
BLAKE LIVELY at the Slack Bay premiere
gown by Vivienne Westwood
Take off at least seven layers of this cake, and maybe I’ll consider it.
BLAKE LIVELY at the Café Society luncheon
dress by Valentino, shoes by Jimmy Choo
Every single styling choice she made here was the wrong one.
dress by Versace, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
Not every dress has to be this complicated, Blake.
dress by Giambattista Valli, shoes by Christian Louboutin
But… so… do you just have to walk around with T-Rex arms all night?
BLAKE LIVELY at the Café Society photocall
I give up.
KRISTEN STEWART at the Vanity Fair dinner
gown by Chanel
She’s trying to get a rise out of me. But I will NOT allow myself to be triggered by you, Kristen. I am boldly ignoring your roots AND your nun-by-day, matador-by-night ensemble. You will NOT make my blood pressure rise. I AM IN CONTROL.

A super classy take on any of Britney’s iconic outfits is the adult aesthetic to which I one day aspire. “Yes, I’m still taking my fashion cues from Britney Spears, but isn’t this such a classy spin on it? #ADULT”
Your description of Amal Clooney is perfection.
I don’t now, I kind of like this cake. Looks tasty.
Also loved the description of Amal Clooney. I read it like three times over. And Blake Lively’s fashion choices make me tired. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LVXjB_VUfk
That is one of the best summaries of the Amal Clooney, Queen of the Universe, that I’ve ever heard.
