And the LEWKS just keep on coming.
AISHWARYA RAI at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Michael Cinco, jewelry by De Grisogono
It’s not truly Cannes until Aishwarya shuts the whole damn festival down. And shut it down, she did. Please, feast your eyes upon this beautiful mosaic/stained glass/butterfly wing train:
Cannes is over. Everybody go home. (Wait, don’t, I have like a zillion more blog posts.)
SARA SAMPAIO at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Zuhair Murad, jewelry by Chopard
The Portuguese Victoria’s Secret model is staking her claim at Cannes and demanding to be seen as a red carpet star. And if she keeps pulling out stunners like this gown, I’m inclined to agree.
JOAN SMALLS at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Roberto Cavalli, jewelry by Chopard, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I dig the combination of textures – it keeps this from being just another in a painfully long line of black sheer embellished gowns.
KRISTEN STEWART, LÉA SEYDOUX, KHADJA NIN, AVA DUVERNAY, and CATE BLANCHETT at the Girls of the Sun premiere
Kristen’s suit by Chanel, sunglasses by Roberi & Fraud
Léa’s gown by Louis Vuitton
Ava’s gown by Alberta Ferretti
Cate’s gown by Armani Privé, jewelry by Chopard
These divas participated in a protest about the lack of female filmmakers recognized throughout Cannes history, and looked incredible doing it. In all, Cannes has honored only 82 films directed by women, compared to 1,645 films by men. The protest at the Girls of the Sun premiere wasn’t the only momentous feminist moment at the first Weinstein-less Cannes; with a Cannes jury full of powerful women, it seems like everyone felt empowered to speak truth to power. (Especially Asia Argento.) Kudos, ladies. Advocacy is always in fashion.
DIANE KRUGER at the Dior x Madame Figaro dinner
top and pants by Dolce & Gabbana
That particular brand of weird that nobody but Diane can pull off. I adore it.
HELEN MIRREN at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Elie Saab, jewelry by Avakian
I don’t think the sleeves needed to have their own trains, but everything else about this is the perfect amount of opulence.
NAOMI CAMPBELL at the Dior x Madame Figaro dinner
gown by Christian Dior
THAT’S where my shower curtain went! (tbh, I still kind of love this.)
BELLA HADID at the Dior x Madame Figaro dinner
gown and purse by Christian Dior, jewelry by Bulgari
I’m not a huge fan of the “isn’t it sexy how only one of my straps is functioning?” trend, but the color is great and the styling’s on point.
KENDALL JENNER at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Schiaparelli, jewelry by Chopard
I’m never going to like anything she wears, because I simply don’t like her. That being said, this resembles a trash bag less than most of her wardrobe does, so I guess I’ll take that as a win.
MARION COTILLARD at the Angel Face premiere
jumpsuit by Armani Privé, jewelry by Chopard
Refreshingly chic and clean, with killer earrings to boot.
MARION COTILLARD at the Angel Face photocall
ensemble by Adam Selman
Is… is that a romper with a giant apron? Marion. Darling. What are we even doing here? Are you okay? Is this a cry for help?
JASMINE TOOKES at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Zac Posen
Basic, but beautiful. Without the jewelry, I’d have fallen asleep by now.
PRAYA LUNDBERG at the Girls of the Sun premiere
dress by Julien Macdonald
All the diamonds in the world can’t make this dress look anything but cheap.
ARAYA A. HARGATE at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Jean Paul Gaultier, jewelry by Chopard
The necklace makes no sense with this dress whatsoever – not the color, not the shape, not the style. I’m all for drowning in as many gems as Chopard will lend you, but this is just a waste of an uncommonly gorgeous piece of jewelry.
HAILEY BALDWIN at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Roberto Cavalli, jewelry by Chopard
So, I guess she’s really sticking with that Lady Bird hair.
AMBER HEARD at the Girls of the Sun premiere
dress by Giambattista Valli, shoes by Roger Vivier
You get ONE stupid droopy ivory bow per dress, Amber. Don’t be greedy.
ELSA HOSK at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Alberta Ferretti
Not to repeat my diatribe about Joan Smalls from Day 4, but the “bow for boobs” trend is a bad one, and I would very much like for it to die.
SOFIA BOUTELLA at the Fahrenheit 451 premiere
gown by Vera Wang
Those colors are washed-out and depressing. And unlike basically everyone else at Cannes, Sofia couldn’t save this dress with a necklace. At least, not that necklace.
SALMA HAYEK at the Girls of the Sun premiere
gown by Gucci
I would kill to look as good in anything as she does in a dress that would have looked dated several decades ago.
