Uma Thurman in Dolce & Gabbana in Cannes: stunning or too boob flowery?


At the Cannes jury photocall, Uma Thurman showed up in a rather stunning, figure-flattering white Dolce & Gabbana dress with which I was initially quite taken, but then I noticed the eyelet detailing. Actually, the sleeve details are pretty okay and not a deal breaker, but then there’s the awful matter of the flowery eyelet pattern in the boob area, which looks very out of place and sort of kills the entire dress up close.


Still and as a former model, Uma knows how to work a less than perfect outfit, and the dress really flatters her from a few feet away.


Other jurors in attendance included Jude Law and Robert DeNiro. Kaiser, CB, and I are sort of wondering how long Jude will take to get someone pregnant in the coat room at one of Canne’s many notorious parties.


Also, the everchanging hair line of Jude must certainly ebb and flow whenever he’s getting some action. Is it possible to remove one’s hair plugs?


At present, Jude’s hair would indicate that he hasn’t gotten laid yet since landing at the airport. However, there are still several days of the festival left to endure, and Jude won’t be alone for long.

    Stunning! Jude looks good, too.

  3. DGO says:

    I love the dress and shoes.

  4. Jackson says:

    Gorgeous! From far away or up close the dress is great and she looks fabulous as well. A+!!!

  5. Kasey says:

    Not a fan of the boob flower but she is ROCKING that dress and looks stunning nonetheless! Love the shoes also!

  6. DetRiotgirl says:

    I think she looks fabulous. She has kind of a spunky beauty about her that makes her look very alive inside. With her smile, this woman would probably look amazing even if she wore a burlap sack!

    Also, lol at your reporting on the status of Jude Law’s hairline! After all, we need some sort of explanation for it’s behavior. The way it changes, you would think his head has it’s own personal tide cycle.

  7. Samigirl says:

    She could wear a potato sack and still look amazing. The woman is stunning.

  8. guesty says:

    I like it.

  9. ZenB says:

    Gorgeous! Look at her legs and those *cute* silver sandals. She rocks it!

    No need to see that sleazy Jude Law. None.

  10. wunderkindt says:

    I’m not loving that dress. Makes her look too matronly!

  11. Eileen says:

    Agreeing with Samgirl-she is gorgeous.

  12. Blue says:

    She looks great! That first pic made me say wtf

  13. Glyrics says:

    The flower’s between her breasts, not on them

    She looks fabulous!

  14. ThirdChris says:

    Love it!! What a fresh, summery look for her.

  15. danielle says:

    Gorgeous. Who cares what the dress looks like if you’re that beautiful in it?

  16. sandy says:

    i admit, i never saw her appeal, but now, the woman is beautiful, that dress looks so fresh and effortless on her, we rarely see her and i think given her negative past, she over came with class. i love mature celebs like this.

  17. Ann says:


  18. Amanda says:

    Gorgeous! Omg, I forgot how beautiful she is! Love her

  19. RobN says:

    Love the way that DeNiro just stands there looking like DeNiro, and Jude Law is working it soooo hard. It’s the difference between self-confidence and forever being a wannabe.

  20. Solveig says:

    What’s happening to CB today? It’s taking me hours to open the threads and the site itself.* :(
    Anyway, I hate white dresses and this one makes no exceptions. She’s stunning, obviously (and she can move her forehead!).

    *I don’t know if I’ll be able to post this comment, actually.

    Edit: everything is working fine now.

  21. harfang says:

    Seriously @RobN, DeNiro’s all “Hey, nice to see you guys too. Where’s the food at in this dump?”

    It’s a lovely dress, the eyelet detail is not especially questionable and we’d all be thrilled to look like that in clothes, so hey.

  22. skibunny says:

    She looks beautiful!

  23. sapphire says:

    Love her and the dress and shoes. Incredible how she can work it!

  24. Ron says:

    Uma and Jude both look great. DeNiro looks like he’s in line for the 4:30 early bird buffet.

  25. Cheyenne says:

    Love the dress and she is wearing the hell out of it. Ditto the shoes. Total A+.

  26. Amanda G says:

    Love it! Very flattering to her figure.

  27. Gwen says:

    I think she looks great. As for Jude.. *drools all over keyboard* I know he’s a sleeze but dayum! he can work a suit :D

  28. Really says:

    Holy Botox! 3rd Photo down. How do you only have wrinkles on part of your forehead? The middle is completly smooth. Great dress & she looks good. @Ron- Agree about DeNiro!

  29. Cherry Rose says:

    She looks great in it. However, whatever happened to her career? Ever since the Kill Bill movies, her career seems to have taken a drop.

  30. OtherChris says:

    She looks amazing from head to toe. It’s refreshing to see someone covered up and in a dress that’s actually flattering.

  31. dorothy says:

    She’s stunning.

  32. Anguishedcorn says:

    Stunning. With a capital “stun.”

  33. EdithP says:

    Why is this dress worse than the one that Rachel McAdams wore? Barnacle flowers on that one.

    Uma is gorgeous!

  34. KIM says:

    Dammm Jude is a Sexy Beast !

    Love Him.

  35. truetalk says:

    Knockout! i’m so jealous

  36. jill says:

    Jude Law is bringing the Sexy !!

  37. Newbie says:

    She is gorgeous. I usually hate eyelet, but she makes me wish I had a dress just like this. Man I need to learn how to sew! Honestly, she looks so wonderful. And happy. Good for her. Also, has anyone here seen Gattica? LOVE that movie, and love her in it. Jude’s in it too. And Ethan Hawke. Yay!

  38. Francesca says:

    Nice of her to slump down so she didn’t tower over Bob; not many women would do that for fear of looking less than fantastic. That is what is so great about her; she doesn’t care cuz she knows she’s a knock out even if there is a bad pic or she has a double chin for a nano sec. LOVE her confidence!!

  39. womanfromthenorth says:

    She looks great! Love the dress..

  40. Nikki says:

    That is one of the most beautiful dresses ever and she totally rocks it.

  41. dj says:

    Effortless. She really is casually elegant. I love her body language in that picture between DeNiro and Law. Sexy Chica.

  42. beth says:

    thank god im not an A-lister celeb. i swear if i were ever scrutinised THIS up close to the single hald-inch long hair i might forget to pluck on my calf, i would hang myself :D
    better than to have two flowery eyelets one on each boob dont you think?

  43. jemshoes says:

    Stunning! She looks as fresh, crisp and clean as newly-pressed handkerchief.

    I would be terrified of even breathing in that dress for fear of staining it! :D

  44. jasmine says:

    wow! all woman, she looks amazing!

  45. REALIST says:

    Nice dress and shoes, but more high end professional attire, I think- appropriate for the CEO of a company at some big meet and greet).
    I am in Seattle now-rain, rain, rain-we have had a “late spring”-oh how lovely Cannes would be!

  46. Kim says:

    Very pretty, classy dress and she looks amazing in it.

  47. lisa says:

    Go girl..

    Best she has looked in a long time..

    I’m so confused on the criteria that they used to select the judges.. De Niro I get.. but ummmmm not sure about some of the others..

    scratch head.

  48. Daphne says:

    That’s a natural beauty.

  49. Hakura says:

    Her body looks *incredible* in this dress. I don’t care for the boob flower, but at least it doesn’t take away from her silhouette.

    But does anyone else notice how oddly positioned her legs are, in that first picture? It’s like it’s turned at an unnatural angle. o_O

    Uma is amazing. I only use that word once a week. So, Uma gets the a-word from me.
