Cannes Film Festival 2018: Days 2 & 3

Welcome back to the French Riviera, where things continue to be breathtakingly glamorous.

I worship this. Also, does it come in a coloring book?

Gorgeous. The detailing is impeccable, and the styling feels fresh.

One of the things that makes Cannes so glam is that major jewelry brands sponsor practically half the events. The quantity and quality of mega-gems at Cannes is unmatched. Like, this gown is fine, but that diamond choker is what makes this a motherfucking LOOK. The downside of this is that you will also see stars wearing a truly stupid amount of jewelry because Chopard is paying for their dinner, or whatever. But it’s worth it, I swear.

That droopy neckline really shouldn’t work, but somehow, it does. I think it’s the colors, the pockets, and the view from the back that really bring this whole look together.

Delicate as a goddamn ballerina, but the print is bold and fun. A delightful combination.

I couldn’t find a full-length picture, so maybe she’s wearing fucking clogs or something. But from what I can see, I love it on her. Perfect combo of glam and sporty.

The black gown with that jagged neckline is basically built to show off a statement necklace. It’s an uncommonly excellent pairing of jewels and dress.

Remember the thing about wearing too much jewelry because Chopard is buying you dinner? Yeah. Diamond earrings that reach your shoulders, AND all those bracelets? With cocktail attire? She kinda pulls it off, but it’s a LOT.

The pleating on this thing is breathtaking.

I love the top, but I’m not sure how I feel about the feathered skirt.

The skirt is a work of art, but it’s really hard for me to get on board with someone wearing black stockings with white platform peep-toes.

Fucking cool and also probably weighs twenty pounds.

Slightly too “old Western lingerie” for me. Good color, though.

The chainmail-looking fabric is interesting, but those lines on the bodice look a little cheap to me.

The dress is gorgeous but predictable. The jewelry, though? Stunning.

I mean, it’s Chloë Sevigny. She’s sometimes going to wear giant graduation tassels, and we just kind of have to deal with it.

That sleeve length – not quite three-quarters, not quite full-length – just makes it look like she’s wearing a child’s jacket. And the giant wide collar is just terrible.

You can’t wear a mansion’s worth of diamonds and then not bother to do your hair. It just doesn’t work.

There was a time when I loved Carey Mulligan’s style, but it’s been minimalism to the point of nothingness for far too long. Everything from the cut to the color looks… empty.

If you’re going to wear a dress we’ve seen a million times, you have to style it better than this.

Well, it’s a nice Bat Mitzvah dress.

From the side, I thought this was fine, if a little unremarkable. But boy, did I have remarks when I saw it head-on:

What in the actual fuck is that neckline?!

The lipstick isn’t my favorite, but the look has an Audrey Hepburn vibe that I’m appreciating.

I just generally hate this.

Everything about this is an assault on my eyeballs.

One response to Cannes Film Festival 2018: Days 2 & 3

    I think if Carey was wearing a big necklace and literally any bracelet, she would look glam. But as is, she looks unfinished.

    Marion needs to fire whoever dressed her in that.
