Cannes Film Festival 2018: Day 4

Welcome back to the film festival fashion fiesta, darlings.

A statement-making gown if there ever was one. And the statement it’s making is, “I am too fucking fabulous, and the rest of you mere mortals should be kissing the red carpet upon which I deign to walk.”

From the front, I thought this had a beachy glamour, but wasn’t particularly unique. The rear view shut me up, though:

The straps are stunning, particularly with those earrings. I’m slightly confused by the way that fabric hangs in the back, but this is beautiful enough that I don’t quite care.

Love the cobalt, the ombre tulle, and the absolutely flawless gems.

Lupita in a princess gown is always a crowdpleaser, even if I’d hoped for something a little more memorable. Still, she’s one of the most fun people to watch on the red carpet, if only for moments like this:

Like a kid in a candy shop. Too adorable for words.

It doesn’t work from every angle, but damn if it isn’t original as hell and breathtakingly glam. Now, let’s examine that thing on her shoulder:

Okay, it’s still a weird detail, but from the aerial view, I’m on board.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen this dress, and it won’t be the last. But Jasmine wears it damn well.

The fit isn’t great, but the diamond trim paired with a boatload of Chopard jewels? Fantastic.

The silhouette is interesting and the necklace is to die for. Bonus: it has pockets.

BELLA HADID at the Ash is the Purest White premiere
gown by Dior, jewelry by Bulgari

Bella toned things down in this simple satin Dior, but I’m on board with this cleaner, more minimalist aesthetic on her. As long as that minimalism involves this many diamonds.

Not the most imaginative dress on earth, but I’ll take it.

ELSA HOSK at the Chopard party

Well, she’s no Lupita when it comes to making fabric magically float around her. I think maybe Elsa just can’t handle this much dress. And I definitely can’t handle that half-pony she’s sporting.

The dress is fine; in true Cannes fashion, the jewelry is doing most of the heavy lifting.

Pretty but predictable.

The hair is way too casual for the rest of the outfit.

Are we sure this isn’t on backwards?

JOAN SMALLS at the Chopard party
gown by Miu Miu, jewelry by Chopard, shoes by Roger Vivier

We’ve seen the “giant bow as a bra” thing before, and it almost always looks a little dumb. Being a model, Joan can pull it off, but I still find it cartoonish and absurd, and not in a good way.

Come on. It’s a glorified swimsuit.

You know I’m usually here for TOO FUCKING MUCH, but even I have to draw the line somewhere. I think it’s at these magenta satin heels, which should not exist after 1997.

ARAYA A. HARGATE at the Chopard party

The whole look feels a little dated. Didn’t we have a whole year of dresses like this by Zuhair, and by Naeem Khan, on the red carpet?

She looks like a giant bag of shredded mozzarella cheese. Or a marshmallow exploding in the microwave. Or a very, very elderly Muppet.

Uh, I guess this is technically clothing?

I’m all for freeing the nipple, but couldn’t she free it in something less painfully basic?
