Every con has its pros. And every pro has a bedazzled pantsuit.
Best Dressed: CATE BLANCHETT at the world premiere
suit by Missoni
To the delight of all of my lesbian friends, Cate has worn nothing but suits on this press tour. Kudos, Ms. Blanchett. Also, I plan on wearing this to my second bat mitzvah when I am 83.

I love that tuxedo jacket so damn much.

That lipstick makes her look like a ghost clown, and I don’t even care because Cate Blanchett is that powerful.

suit by Armani
It’s like a shiny track suit. And not in the good way. Because it is impossible to mean that in a good way.
Runner-Up: SARAH PAULSON at the world premiere
gown by Prada
Day-glo Koosh ball, but make it fashion. (THAT, my friends, is a compliment.)
SARAH PAULSON in New York City
dress by Michael Kors
The duster’s a tad unseasonal, but the dress and shoes are summertime perfection.
SARAH PAULSON at the New York City screening
I’d like those shoes in a size six immediately, if not sooner.
Honorable Mention: RIHANNA at the world premiere
dress by Givenchy, jewelry by Bulgari, shoes by Manolo Blahnik
It’s shiny and twisty and girly and funky and above all, Riri. The purple and mauve makeup is brilliant. All the accessories are on point. I love this.
MINDY KALING at the world premiere
gown by Prabal Gurung
Glamorous as all hell.
MINDY KALING at the New York City screening
dress by Altuzarra, shoes by Malone Souliers
Maybe the shoes match in a different light, but in this one, it’s a problem.

Sandra’s jumpsuit by Elie Saab
Cate’s suit by Salvatore Ferragamo, shoes by Aquazzura
Anne’s dress by Maticevski
Mindy’s dress by Stella McCartney, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Cate’s suit is phenomenal, and her shoes are a stroke of genius. Sandra’s jumpsuit is perfect, but she could stand to lose a few hair extensions. Everyone else looks good, but not particularly remarkable.
AWKWAFINA at the world premiere
jumpsuit by Reem Acra
Aggressively romantic, in a medieval nightgown sort of way. It’s actually pants, if that helps you deal with this. (It didn’t help me.)
GIGI HADID at the world premiere
gown by Vera Wang
I’m not sure whether a handful of models hit up this premiere because they’re in the movie (it does prominently feature the Met Gala, after all) or because that’s what models do – they show up to random movie premieres and wear black. Honestly, I kind of dig the oversized draped sleeves, but I’m not sure I’m sold on the front of that skirt.
SANDRA BULLOCK at the world premiere
gown by Elie Saab
I know she didn’t actually wear this on the red carpet seven years ago, but you’d believe it, wouldn’t you? The earrings are terrific, though.
SANDRA BULLOCK at the New York City screening
jumpsuit by Yigal Azrouël, shoes by Le Silla
The slitted sleeves seem unnecessary, but I love the shoes. And the shoes of that guy walking next to her, for that matter.
LIU WEN at the world premiere
dress by Jason Wu
It’s fine. I’m underwhelmed.
LILY ALDRIDGE at the world premiere
gown by Dolce & Gabbana
I don’t even understand what I’m looking at. I’m all for mixed textures, but this is incomprehensible.
CINDY BRUNA at the world premiere
dress by Balmain
I think I’ve already seen every iteration of this same Balmain dress imaginable. It’s enough.
ANNE HATHAWAY at the world premiere
gown by Jean Paul Gaultier, jewelry by Cartier
I get what she was going for, but I really don’t like it.
ANNE HATHAWAY arriving at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
blouse by Anna Sui, skirt by Rochas, sunglasses by Karen Walker, purse by Gabriela Hearst
Love the sunglasses and the skirt.
ANNE HATHAWAY in New York City
dress by Bottega Veneta, sunglasses by Karen Walker
Hate the pockets and the shoes.

sweater and skirt by Stella McCartney, sunglasses by Karen Walker, purse by Gabriela Hearst
She looks GRRRRRRRRRREAT.
ANNE HATHAWAY departing The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
dress by Martin Grant, shoes by Gianvito Rossi
Love the texture; not sure the silhouette really works.
ADRIANA LIMA at the world premiere
gown by Roberto Cavalli, jewelry by Chopard, shoes by Sophia Webster
In case Cannes didn’t offer enough models in black sheer embellished gowns…
HELENA BONHAM CARTER at the world premiere
gown by Vivienne Westwood
I love you, Bellatrix, but you need to try harder than this.
