The Cannes film festival is at an end, and this year has been more starry than ever. Brad and Angelina, best actress winner Kirsten Dunst, Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp, Uma Thurman, Gwen Stefani..the list has been a-list all the way. And the clothes have been amazing – some amazingly bad if truth be told. Here is the final Cannes fashion round-up.
Kirsten Dunst looked wonderful in a mustard yellow dress by Chloe whilst promoting her film ‘Melancholia’, for which she was awarded the Palme D’or. This look was worthy of an award itself, for its total freshness and sunshine quality. I was less impressed with the Rodarte gown worn on the red carpet. The fit was amazing, but it just sort of resembled a 70s lampshade. Her grooming though, was immaculate.
Milla Jovovich looked like she was channelling the spirit of Garbo and Hepburn in this 1930s looking dress by Prada.Retro bangs completed one of my favourite looks this season. She continued the retro vibe in slinky Versace at the AMFAR benefit.
Socialite Tamara Beckwith failed to impress in the sort of dress that usually turns up in ‘Come Dancing’. Cut to the naval and really cheap looking,with a sloppy ponytail – this said ‘fail’ on all counts.
Naomi Campbell had some varied fashion moments at Cannes this year. But she looked truly beautiful in this burgundy tiered dress by Azzedine Alaia which looked beautifully elegant. Less successful was the Country and Western inspired Givenchy dress which is just missing the Stetson.
Pregnant women desperate for sex puts on some saucy undies, maybe to induce labour. That is the only description I could give to Charlotte Gainsbourgs outfit. Brave, but ultimately uncomfortable viewing – and I’ve had a child!
Classic black dresses can are a red carpet staple, and I loved the one worn by Clemence Poesy from Chanel, and was also surprised by a groomed and glamorous Mischa Barton, frankly looking better than she has looked for a long time.
There was a tale of two rock queens. Gwen Stefani looked groomed and gorgeous in one of her own LAMB designs, whilst Courtney Love looked a half undressed, dishevelled mess on the red carpet.
I loved Uma Thurman in dove grey Chanel with romantic roses around the neckline, but I wish she hadn’t worn the flat sandals – I think they jarred with such an exquisite dress.
Was Dasha Zhukova wearing Princess Beatrice’s hat by any chance?
Love the ethereal princess feel of Zhang Ziyi in this beautiful gown at the Elle and Dior party.Top marks to in posing on a colour coordinating staircase.
