Cannes 2017: The Parties, Part 2

Welcome back to the Cannes party scene.

It is positively unjust that a nineteen-year-old gets to wear all my dream accessories at the same time. I am a grown-ass woman! Where the hell is my geometric Prada belt?!

Business chic in a killer color.

The print is lovely and the shoes are a blast, but that thick belt is giving me 2007 flashbacks in a bad way.

It’s fine, but if she weren’t wearing that necklace, I’d be more interested in the floral arrangements than in the celebrity in front of them.

That’s definitely not the right shade of lipstick for this dress, and it may be the wrong shade for Jessica’s coloring altogether.

The proportions are a little off – she appears to be about four feet tall with the shoulders of a linebacker – but at least this is fun as hell.

Nothing better than when the over 60 crowd slays the red carpet. Never stop, Isabelle.

Digging the strappy gown, and loving that she paired it with those odd broken-strap shoes. A genius styling move that kept this look from feeling dull.

Great fit, here for the fringe. Love the vintage Hollywod hair.

Okay, her skirt may have recently been in an explosion, but those earrings are FUCKING AWESOME.

It’s not the first time I’ve seen this dress on the red carpet, and because models all worship at the altar of Balmain, I’m sure it won’t be the last. But it’s a relatively-more-interesting take on Balmain’s embellished graphic gowns, so I’ll take what I can get.

I’m all for a bit of shoulderpad when the occasion calls for it, but this is absolutely ridiculous.

This looks like it weighs seventy pounds, and I have no idea how she pees.

Bitch, you think I can’t tell your jacket and pants are two different shades of black? Try harder.

Put this in the folder with the rest of the sheer-gowns-with-giant-hideous-underwear looks we’ve seen at Cannes this year, and then set that folder on fire.

“Basic dress; killer necklace that might actually be too good for said dress” seems to be a theme this year as well.

Monica. Honey. Are you okay? What am I even looking at?

… is there a UFO nestled beneath her breasts?

Are you a blanket in the 70s? No? Then what the fuck are you doing in this print, Gwendoline?

EVA LONGORIA at the Vanity Fair/HBO dinner
gown by Kaufmanfranco

She is exhaustingly unoriginal.

This is one of the worst uses of illusion netting in red carpet history, and that’s saying something. That shit has a long and storied history of fashion disasters.

Is that capelet tied to her dress with an umbilical cord? Who would think of such a thing? And is Kate truly so loathed by her stylists that no one bothered to mention that the string climbing out of her boobs is like supremely unsettling?

SALMA HAYEK at the Kering Talks: Women in Motion panel

It’s like the world’s frumpiest secretary costume.

Nothing about this works.

GOD HELP US ALL.

Need more Cannes? Everybody does.

One response to Cannes 2017: The Parties, Part 2

  1. Salma Hayek has obviously lost all access to mirrors. And what… what… what even with Kate Moss’s gown? That is a HORRIBLE design element. One of the worst I’ve ever seen.
