The Cannes Film Festival premiere of Woody Allen’s Irrational Man was held last night, and Joaquin Phoenix still did not show up. Which is interesting, and I’m guessing there’s some larger story there. But with Joaquin’s absence, that meant there was even more focus on Emma Stone and Parker Posey. And OMG.
Let’s start with Emma in this Christian Dior. It’s deceptively simple, beautifully tailored (which is unexpected for Raf Simons’ reign), pale and lacy. I guess I should hate it since I’m not crazy about lace and I was hoping Emma would wear something bright. But I don’t hate it at all. I think she looks very beautiful and very “Emma”. I liked that she went high drama with her updo (I’m including a photo of the back of her head because it’s actually one of the most beautiful photos from the group) and I love the diamond choker. She looks sophisticated but not too “mature.” She looks ethereal without looking bridal. It’s a difficult balance and she pulls it off.
As for Parker Posey… OMG. This is apparently a custom look by “Electric Feathers.” It’s sort of “when Gloria Swanson met Mrs. Roper.” And I kind of think it’s perfect. It’s ‘70s, it’s crazy, it looks cheap, and it’s totally “Parker Posey.” Note to Eva Mendes: this is how to work a turban.
More photos from the premiere… Michelle Rodriguez in Elie Saab. Very pretty.
Melissa George in Schiaparelli Spring 2015. High fashion shorts with a long coat? Nope.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (formerly Cheryl Cole) wore this high-drama Ralph & Russo Spring 2015 gown. It’s a good look for a “fashion girl” at Cannes. I almost didn’t recognize her though – did she have some work done?
