Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton at Cannes premiere: minimalist or tedious?

Cannes Wonderstruck premiere

Night 2 of the Cannes Film Festival felt pretty muted, but I think we’re being hampered by the staggered arrival times for premieres. Last night, there were two big premieres, first for Wonderstruck and the second for Nelyubov (which was the more sparsely attended premiere).

These photos of Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore are from the Wonderstruck premiere. Neither woman really brought the fashion p0rn. Michelle obviously wore Louis Vuitton – this is just a really boring navy dress, the kind that you would usually see on the wife of a producer, not the star of the film. The milquetoast nature of this LV is made worse by the fact that Michelle literally just put it on and walked out the door. No jewelry. Barely any makeup. Her hair is the same as the photocall. Can I please get a pair of earrings or something?? As for Julianne, she wore Chanel: a beaded cocktail dress with a built-in feathered dickie. Awful.

Amber Valletta in Mulberry Fall 2017. One, I thought Amber was Nicole Richie in these photos. Isn’t that weird? Two, I really dislike this dress. What’s with all the cocktail dresses on the Cannes red carpet?

Emily Ratajkowski in a custom Peter Dundas. OMG. On one hand, this totally looks perfect for Cannes and literally no other red carpet. On the other hand, this is awful. It’s a lace jumpsuit with a giant, attached, puffy, taffeta half-skirt. Seriously.

    So who’s yachting this year?

    • Mia4s says:

      The whispers there are that the “party” overall is dying out so to speak, at least for the famous names. The rumor is that with the advent of cell phone cameras, the need for crazy security, and all these stories getting out has meant that a lot of the celebs don’t feel secure…indulging, shall we say. I mean parties on both sides of the transactions. It’s still going on of course but not with any names you would recognize.

      However I’m sure Leo DiCaprio will show up. After his recent breakup (AHAHAHAHAHA!) he’s in need of another white model half his age to pretend to be in a relationship with.

    • detritus says:

      interesting… i wouldn’t be surprised if this sort of stuff starts being blown wide open.
      Singers parties for young boys, Eppsteins notorious parties, Flynn-Boyles ring, yachting at Cannes, this stuff is coming out of the woodwork.

    Not good. And Julianne, wtf?

  3. Lightpurple says:

    Oh dear! Emily is peeing ruffles! Why is she there again?

    And Michelle either spilled something down the front of her dress or she’s sweating through it.

    Julianne, darling, no feathers! Without them, that dress would probably be lovely but we can’t see it because FEATHERS!

    Amber, when the airline loses your luggage, ask them to buy you some clothes to tide you over until they find it. Wearing the drapes from your hotel room only works if you’re Scarlett O’Hara or Carol Burnett.

    • ichsi says:

      My money is on sweating through it, this looks inexplicably warm to me. As far as LV designs go, this isn’t too terrible (still not good though). And the free flowing ruffles… on someone a little more high fashion maybe but on Miss pout-y, pose-y feminist? No.

      • Antonym says:

        Not a fan of the use of feminist in a derogatory manner to describe Emily. There are other ways to express dislike of her as an individual without disparaging feminism.

      • ichsi says:

        @Antonym The “feminist” isn’t meant in a derogatory manner. The “pout-y pose-y” is.

      • Antonym says:

        Thanks for clarifying your intent, it comes across as all one label “Miss pouty, posey feminist”. I’m not really clear on what feminist added here, if not part of the insult, but I can appreciate that you didn’t mean it that way.

      • ichsi says:

        @Antonym read some of her interviews. She often calls herself a feminist, however, as a feminist myself I do not particularly agree with what she does to promote feminism (or what she thinks feminism is).

      • Antonym says:

        Perhaps you and define feminism differently. I don’t think feminism requires conformed expression. If she wants to express her feminism differently than me I’m ok with that. She’s advocating for equality and I’m not aware of her doing anything that undermines equality, she just takes non-traditional approaches – her prerogative.

      • bluhare says:

        Non traditional? Non traditional would be preaching your body love and sexuality while having a less than perfect body. As it is, she’s just one more in a long line of women who claim to be empowered by their sexuality, but in reality they’re just another toy making money off men’s fantasies and will only be doing that while she’s still young enough to so. If she’s still preaching and doing in 10-15 years, I’ll say you were right.

  4. Nancy says:

    Michelle’s dress doesn’t work. It’s wrinkly and ill-fitted and she doesn’t look comfortable, especially next to Julianne who is all cha cha. Now Amber is wearing a dress, love it looks great on her although I doubt too many will agree. Emily looks like Elvira on crack and really should just go home.

  5. SM says:

    They all look awful. Aslo what is that Emily whateverhernameis doing there? Did I miss the moment she became a real actress?

  6. ell says:

    horrendous. i can’t even understand the actual shape of the dress.

  7. Liberty says:

    A. A friend is there on assignment and says it is quieter than usual so far

    B. Will someone tell me why yards of bleh lace have become the main part of every “You too can be a top designer/princess” gown kit?” Yes we can see your boobs etc., we get it, but just for a lark,what else is hanging in your trailer closet? But, don’t ask Julianne’s stylist to help…

    C. So three, I prefer Michelle’s French guillotine-ready look by default in my new Lace Protest.*

    * if not handmade by a combo of Italian grannies, Belgian nuns, Karl’s cat, Idris, Daniel, and Thor, I am not interested.

  8. Veronica says:

    I’d like to see Michelle’s dress in person because I think the dots are creating an optical illusion and making it appear less smooth in its fit than it actually is. Emily’s is just awful.

  9. cleveland girl says:

    I am SO over Michelles hair. I miss seeing her as a brunette.

  10. Esmom says:

    I don’t know why but I’m actually liking them all except for Emily Rata’s. But I’m more excited to know that Wonderstruck was being made into a film. The book was amazing.

  11. Evil Owl says:

    Whatevs! Wake me up when Aishwarya Rai floats on to the red carpet with that Goddess face

  12. Kat says:

    These dresses all seem so “heavy” for spring. Where are the light fabrics? Maybe I’m not up on high fashion trends but something less dark and thick would be nice to see.

  13. tw says:

    Can I get one photo of Emily without her boobs up in my face?

  14. What Was That? says:

    I reall do not understand Juliannes choices..yesterday was truly hideous in that green thing which if I had made ..anyone would say What?..but put a designer name ..like Emperor’s new clothes all these fashion mag people are saying..wonderful..
    Maybe I don’t see if but they are not new ideas and not attractive either?
    I think she thinks she is edgy I think it’s awful and I love her and want her to look enhanced and wonderful!

  15. Jess says:

    I just done understand the need for the models there. It’s annoying.

  16. winterforever says:

    Michelle’s dress looks like she spilled water on the front of it. That platinum pixie hair looks THIRSTY. Someone needs some Olaplex and stat!

  17. Annetommy says:

    I think Michelle looks fine. Unlike the talentless Emily thingee, she’s a talented and in-demand actress, and doesn’t need to faff about endlessly before showing herself. I don’t think she’s interested in being stereotypically sexy, whereas it appears to be Emily’s only mission in life. But that mutated flamenco number is seriously fugly.

  18. Wren33 says:

    Hmm, I’m not sure Michelle’s dress totally works, but I don’t think it is boring. I think it is interesting and a combo or patterns and cuts I am not used to seeing. Sort of fashion forward combined with business wear. I don’t hate that they tried.

  19. blonde555 says:

    Michelle needs to grow her hair out, she looks like a washed out robot boy.
    Emily needs to shut her over injected pout more and take some acting courses.

  20. Marianne says:

    Why does anyone except fashion porn from Michelle Williams. She wears the same kind of dress ALL THE TIME.

  21. Bug says:

    Everything’s very painful. Michelle has become soooo boring with that hair colour and her dress choices. She really needs to give up Vuitton.

  22. DesertReal says:

    Michelle needs…so many things.
    No more fillers, less bleach, etc.
    She’s gorgeous, but chica’s starting​ to look less like a classy 36 and more like a well preserved Hollywood 50.
