Cannes Film Festival 2018: Day 5

And the LEWKS just keep on coming.

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.)

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.

I dig the combination of textures – it keeps this from being just another in a painfully long line of black sheer embellished gowns.

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.

That particular brand of weird that nobody but Diane can pull off. I adore it.

I don’t think the sleeves needed to have their own trains, but everything else about this is the perfect amount of opulence.

THAT’S where my shower curtain went! (tbh, I still kind of love this.)

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.

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.

Refreshingly chic and clean, with killer earrings to boot.

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?

Basic, but beautiful. Without the jewelry, I’d have fallen asleep by now.

All the diamonds in the world can’t make this dress look anything but cheap.

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.

So, I guess she’s really sticking with that Lady Bird hair.

You get ONE stupid droopy ivory bow per dress, Amber. Don’t be greedy.

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.

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.

I would kill to look as good in anything as she does in a dress that would have looked dated several decades ago.
