Uma Thurman wears Marchesa & Versace in Cannes for ‘Pulp Fiction’ anniversary


I’m about to date myself, but here goes: I’m old enough to remember just how exciting it was when Pulp Fiction first came out in the theaters. I was a teenager but I couldn’t drive yet, and I think it was the first time I had ever gone to a midnight screening. I went with friends and I was obsessed with it. I quoted from it all the time. I went to see it in the theaters several times, and I bought the VHS (YES I SAID IT) as soon as it came out. That was 20 years ago. Seriously.

Part of why Pulp Fiction became such a cultural phenomenon was because it had such amazing word-of-mouth. You just knew – before you even saw it – that a completely different kind of filmmaker was at work here. The word-of-mouth all started at Cannes. Quentin Tarantino debuted Pulp Fiction at Cannes, where it went on to win the Palme d’Or (the grand prize). So at this this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the old gang reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary. Quentin Taratino, Uma Thurman and John Travolta all came out not just for the Clouds of Sils Maria premiere, but for the final Cannes ceremony as well. I’m including photos of both events. I could honestly look at photos of Uma and QT for hours. I love their friendship/partnership. It just makes me happy. I love the way he loves her.

A fashion note – Uma wore the canary yellow Atelier Versace gown to the Sils Maria premiere. To the final ceremony, she wore that horrible, tacky, poorly constructed Marchesa gown. That sh-t is beneath her. Uma wore Chopard jewels with both looks.

    Georgina Chapman needs to get over herself. How is she a fashion designer when all she does is costumes for professional ice skaters?
    I’ll put her in the same folder as Stella McCartney called ‘Trashy and tacky clothes I’ll never buy when I’ll be a millionaire’

    The Marchesa dress is simply bad.

  3. Sisi says:

    Don’t think it would be fair of me to criticize Uma’s white dress when Quentin is standing next to her in that outfit.

    Let me just say that the yellow gown is infinitely better.

    Loved the movie, love how close they seem to be. This movie spawned so many “alternative remakes” and copy-cat versions, I lost track, however, it was and is and will continue to be one of the most unique movies ever made. Tarantino’s great.

  5. Kiddo says:

    I’ll say something nice. Pulp Fiction was a radically different movie by the day’s standards. Uma has a great figure, and maybe sloppy black and blue mismatched ill-fitted men’s suits are all the rage in Hollywood.

    I thought the first picture was Blake Lively.

  7. AlmondJoy says:

    Uma is beautiful. I feel bad for saying this, but every time I see a pic of Tarantino, I can’t help but stare. I’m mesmerized by his face!! He has the most unusual face I’ve ever seen 😦

    Chapman would not have any sort of prestige outside the pageant circuit if not for her husband strong arming his friends and stylists to promote his wife’s gaudy trash.

    Seriously, there are better looking gowns at Texas pageant stores than Marchesa, if you are into that sort of thing.

  9. Meow Mix says:

    In that pic of the Marchessa gown she looks like Princess Charlene of Monaco.

    Someone needs to steal all of the sheer fabric out of Marchesa- so ice skatery!

    I had Pulp Fiction on VHS too- it was actually a screener for Academy voting that someone gave me. Ah the old days.

  11. Abby says:

    I love the yellow–it reminds me of Kill Bill posters.

  12. Mandy says:

    OMG, that Marchesa dress is AWFFFULLLL!!! I love Pulp Fiction, too. It’s been on TV a good bit lately and I always end up stopping and watching the whole movie.

  13. bored_01 says:

    Really? I think she looks better in the Marchesa.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Quentin needs to get on a script for Uma. He really brings out the best in her acting wise.

  15. Loulou says:

    Uma Thurman is a goddess. No one compares, especially not a tacky princess with a surgeon on speed dial. Uma’s hair also is always so beautiful at these events.

  16. jes_sayin says:

    Uma looks great.. but the Marchesa is AWFUL. It literally looks like a $30 dress. The yellow dress in comparison wouldn’t be so bad- it just isn’t her color, it’s too harsh on her.

  17. Mary says:

    I liked the white dress, almost angelic design. PS. I never have seen Pulp Fiction….missed the revolution.

  18. mytbean says:

    Maybe it’s just my imagination, but every time I see them together, it seems that in honor of Quentin’s love for feet, Uma always wears gorgeous shoes with toe exposure when she’s going to be with him. ;)

  19. Mary Jane says:

    E’en in a crappy gown, Uma is freaking gorgeous!

  20. JenniferJustice says:

    I can’t rip on Uma. I don’t care for the white dress – too goose-looking for my taste, but she is a rare beauty (face, body, hair, personality). She seems genuine and kind. I bet she’s a good Mommy.

  21. mollination says:

    What’s unfortunate is that the Marchesa dress *could* have been really beautiful. You can see the attempted execution in the design of the back — it didn’t come to fruition, obviously, but it could have been really lovely. The back is better than the front at least.
