In a perfect world, we’d wear Chanel Haute Couture gowns all day, all the time. In the real world, we live vicariously through Kirsten Dunst, who has been killing it on the red carpet in Cannes. Following up her navy lace and teal Rodarte number, Dunst wore two back to back Chanel couture gowns — the first to amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala and the second to accept her award for Best Actress at Cannes closing ceremony.
Can we take just a second to talk about what Ryan Gosling is wearing in Cannes today? He’s a good looking guy — like, a really, really good-looking guy — but all we can think about when we see these photos is our grandpa’s pajamas. And as sexy as Ryan Gosling is, that’s quite possibly the least sexy mental image, well, ever. We get what the stylist was trying to do here, make him look all relaxed and leisurely, like, “Oh, hey girl. I’m just hanging around on the coast of France.” And yet… pajamas. Thoughts?
T minus four days until the
fashion film extravaganza that is Cannes goes on a shlubby year long hiatus, which means it was perfect timing for some of the world’s best known models to descend onto the festival like so many expensively dressed swans. Naomi Campbell, Bar Refaeli, Doutzen Kroes, Karolina Kurkova, and new-to-us-name Bianca Balti stepped out Tuesday night in the fanciest (and tightest) of designer duds. But who looked best?
And the Cannes red carpet rages on. Last night’s big draw was The Tree Of Life premiere, which saw star Jessica Chastain face off against Angelina Jolie, Anna Dello Russo, Zoe Saldana, and Gwen Stefani. That’s some stiff competition, the fact that both Dello Russo and Saldana then changed into second gowns for the after party notwithstanding.
This weekend marked the halfway point of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, which means there was no shortage of high-wattage celebs, even higher-wattage gowns, and as much flash photography as your style-obsessed mind can handle. This weekend’s best dressed, coming right up!
Another day, another steady stream of celebs walking the red carpet in Cannes. Last night Diane Kruger, Tilda Swinton, Aishwarya Rai, and Mia Wasikowska stepped out in show-stopping looks by some of fashion’s biggest names. We’ll show our hand and dub Tilda’s Haider Ackermann ensemble our favorite of the night — but which was yours?
