Vanessa Hudgens in FendiFrumpy fabric and a frumpy cut = a frumpy Hudgens. Cute for an innocent, younger look....maybe thats why she chose it. To stray away from her XXX antics in recent history.
Bar Rafeli in Roberto Cavalli
This is the definition of sex appeal. The dress hugs her curves unbelievably, and I love the deep sea blue color as a fresh look opposed to black, which is what I'd expect to see this dress as. The cutouts are at interesting locations, giving just the right amount of tasteful curiosity combined with sexuality. Additionally, her swept back hair adds the perfect polished touch to this look.
Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace
Brooke Shields in Roberto CavalliThis is matronly, unflattering and reminds me of a moo-moo. Also, what does the huge printed flower resemble? Yea.
Gwen Stefani in Lanvin
This was my favorite look at Cannes. It's bold, classic, yet non-traditional. I love the gold belt, and the swept back hair is perfect for the heaviness that this dress brings. YES.
Gwen Stefani in Armani PriveCompared to the previous dress we just visited, this one falls short in a big way. The bodice does not fit her ribcage well and is hovering away from her body, giving her that dreaded "flat chested gap" that is never attractive. Additionally, the eye makeup is piled on too thick, which ages her in my opinion.
Penelope Cruz in MarchesaI love this gown on her. Its light, refreshing and ethereal...perfect for spring. It is a good accompaniment to Depp's ice-white sportscoat. And, I love the nude look it provides with certain parts of her skin peeking through without being too revealing.
Kirstin Dunst in ChanelThis is the BEST I've seen Kirstin Dunst in a long time. I wish she would choose to dress like this more often and stray away from her ironic hipster look. She looks beautiful here! Well done.
In ChanelThis is another surprisingly great look from Dunst. A bit similar to the other dress, but hey I'll take it. The only thing I'd change are the non-matching shoes. Good job!
Mischa Barton in ?
Very happy to see Mischa Barton looking cleaned up. She's really becoming our generation's Courtney Love, I think. She looks cute and girly here. She's a pretty girl underneath the grunge. I'm glad she opted to wear nylons, as we wouldn't want another dreaded reveal. It is imperative to always wear proper undergarments, wardrobe tape, ect. to make sure your look is polished, not seedy. Nude fishnets are one of my favorite go-to's instead of nude pantyhose. They give you the coverage that you want and look chic, unlike traditional skin colored nylons that resemble tap dancer show tights or early 90's corporate wear.
Rachel McAdams in MarchesaThis dress reminds me of the spring '10 Givenchy line. Good on the runway, confusing in person on most people. Too artistic for most women to pull off, and as no exception, I'm not loving the dress on her. The dress itself is intricate and wonderfully detailed, but I think she's just the wrong person to carry a dress like this. Someone like Gwen Stefani or Dita Von Teese would have rocked it. Sorry to say, but Rachel McAdams just doesn't have enough presence or drama to work this.
Salma Hayek in GucciThis dress is not a favorite of mine. It looks waxy and stiff, and the heavy feather bolero is drag queen reminiscent. And, the matte brick red color (with the matching shoes) is too muted and takes away from her natural beauty.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Elie SaabThis would have worked better on a younger woman. The colors and the pattern come off as a bit aged.
Tilda Swinton in ? and Roger Vivier Heels
I really love this look. It's perfect for a formal affair during the daytime. It's professional, feminine yet still powerful at the same time. I'd love to rock this outfit at work any day of the year!
Uma Thurman in VersaceI absolutely LOVE this. Refreshing, whimsical and mercurial in the way it moves. It accents her body very well. It definitely makes the grand entrance that you want when arriving at Cannes!
