Diane Kruger versus Tilda Swinton: who looks better in Cannes?

These are some of the first photo sets out of the Cannes Film Festival, which opens today. Did you know that Ewan McGregor, Diane Kruger and Jean-Paul Gaultier are all judges on the festival jury this year? True story. These are some pics from the “jury photo call” earlier today. Diane wore Versus and Jimmy Choo heels, and I’m not crazy about either. I mean, I love Diane. I think she’s so beautiful and she can wear different kinds of styles and you can just tell that she loves fashion. But this dress doesn’t look comfortable and I hate the shoes with the dress. By the way, while I’ve got your attention – the next week and a half will be full of lots of Kruger and McGregor photos – should we cover every fashion moment, every glance? My general thoughts: we should wait until Diane wears something spectacular, because otherwise we’ll get Kruger’d out. Also: what’s the over-under on Diane and Ewan having a torrid Cannes affair? Slim?

Second photo set: the photo call for Wes Anderson’s new film, Moonrise Kingdom. While I have my doubts about Wes Anderson’s general vibe as a writer/director, I do think the man has a gift for putting interesting actors together in the same film. This film stars Bruce Willis, Bill Murray and TILDA SWINTON!!! And they all look adorable and amazing. I think Bill and Tilda are probably from the same alien colony. Oh, and I LOVE Tilda’s outfit and her crazy sunglasses. YAY!

    I wish you would stop with the “who looked better?”. Can’t both women look good?

    (that said Tilda wins, always).

    • Aiobhan says:

      Yes, both women can look good but the questions is “who looked better at looking good?”

      And I agree that Tilda does look better. Jessica Alba is wearing the same dress on the cover of Marie Claire that Diane has on. At least from the top it looks the same. Diane wears it better.

    • Tiffany says:

      I agree, Normades. There are SO MANY ways to look great! Why does it always have to be a competition? There are so many different kinds of beauty, it is kind of absurd to pit women head-to-head against each other like that.

  2. carrie says:

    Tilda looks great very Tilda and elegant and Bill Murray’s suit is very interesting

    • smith says:

      It’s unfair because it’s TILDA, she always brings it. Even if I don’t understand what “it” is, I buy right in. Here’s my money. This is more of a feminine twist for her, all good.

      Bruce is having fun and Bill plays the eccentric very well. I think it’s 80% genuine.

      Diane looks hungry.

      • Irishae says:

        Agree on all points. <3 SWINTON 4ever.

        On a side note, I love how we’ve all collectively decided to refer to Tilda Swinton as either TILDA or SWINTON, in all caps.

  3. Jackie says:

    love tilda’s outfit.

    i could wear that to work very nicely. so professional, yet stylish.

  4. magda says:

    i’m bored with Diane shoes. hundreds of hollywood stars are wearing them lately

  5. Tastykakes says:

    That is the most feminine I have ever seen Tilda. She looks spectacular in anything however.

  6. mia girl says:

    Ok I love me some McGregor, but just no to his look today. Just no.

    Both ladies looks great. I don’t either falters very often.

    But best look, Bill Murray, hands down. :)

  7. Jersey Girl says:

    I think the header for this post should’ve been, “Bill Murray’s Alive?” Besides that, everyone looks rather nice and wore their clothes well. And I can’t speak for everyone but damn – Bruce Willis looks good here! And, of course, Ewan looks delicious as ever.

    • S says:

      I couldn’t help but LMAO at the Bill Murray joke. I was thinking the same thing! He’s either laying low, or working on a few projects.

  8. ThatKid says:

    I. Love. Diane’s. Shoes. Want them for me!

  9. QQ says:

    Tilda Wins always everything

  10. DreamyK says:

    Bill is rather fascinating, but Tilda will always win. I have no idea what is going on with Ewan. Bizarre. I can’t wait to see Moonrise Kingdom. I have a deep and abiding love for all things Wes Anderson.

  11. Genevieve says:

    Both ladies are in my personal Fashion Hall of Fame. Tilda, probably more so, simply based on age and the greater number of quirky, fashion-fabulous outfits she’s worn throughout the years. She REALLY gets it.

    However, Diane Kruger is another fashion goddess, who only infrequently puts her fashionable foot wrong in an only a so-so outfit. I actually really love her styling in this picture. I agree with the person who commented above…I think they BOTH look fabulous!!

  12. T.C. says:

    Diane looks like she is going for the I am a 16 year old cheerleader. Not a good look on an adult. Tilda and Bill are the winners here.

  13. foozy says:

    diane looks incredible!!!! american movie stars have no idea how to dress. long live europe!!!!!!

  14. marie says:

    I love Bill Murray, he’s his own special brand of crazy..

  15. lauren says:

    i love diane kruger but i HATE that dress – it makes her look like she has backfat, which she most definitely does not have. also i think the odds are slim of her hooking up with ewan, although she does seem to be his type (thin, blond, european – thinking of melanie laurent here.)

    that being said, i’m fine with tons of kruger coverage, especially if pacey is involved.

  16. Agnes says:

    LOVE tilda’s outfit. perfection.

    diane’s dress would be way better if it were longer. and what is up with ewan touching her skin, too grabby.

  17. Anne says:

    Now isn’t Diane Kruger’s dress the exact same one Jessica Alba is wearing in the cover of Marie Claire?

  18. Nanz says:

    Kruger and Swinton are perfection.

  19. zinjojo says:

    SWINTON looks amazing; I would love to wear this outfit. I think Diane looks good and she’s always interesting — love her!

    I really dislike the cut of Ewan’s suit — this trend in menswear of shorter jackets just doesn’t do it for me at all. Every time I see someone in a suit cut this way I think that he’s wearing a jacket from a women’s suit.

    When my son was younger, around 9 – 10, he used to wear mismatching plaid shorts and plaid shirts together — we called him “Plaid Man” and I think that Bill Murray takes that title now!

  20. lisa says:

    So glad you posted the.. TILDA looks like a freaking Old Hollywood star

    Sorry if this was posted.. But Diane looks like she is wearing that dress Jessia Alba is on the cover of some magazine. I hate when dresses are seen too often..(if it is the same)

    @anne.. I just read your comment. we see the same thing.

  21. ThatKid says:

    Just finished doing my daily stroll through CB posts, and Diane is wearing the same dress that Jessica Alba did on the June cover of Marie Claire.


    Matters not, I just got a thrill when I recognized the dress in 2 posts. And of course I already commented on the other post, haha :)

  22. Stubbylove says:

    Adore Tilda’s outfit and great sunglasses as well. Diane looks like crap except for her shoes. Great pics of Bill Murray – Love him!

  23. Abigail says:

    Keep the Kruger fashion coming! She’s always interesting and unusual, and has an innate sense of style, which is more than I can say for most actresses.

  24. Janet says:

    Bruce Willis looking good. Love Murray’s plaid explosion.

    I’m not a big fan of Tilda Swinton — she looks too much like a David Bowie clone — but in this outfit she looks very classy and elegant.

    Kruger looks like a damn fool in that dress. Like she tried to squeeze into a sundress she picked up in the kiddie department.

  25. No Sensei says:

    Cannes is Tilda’s town! Even by her high standards, I particularly like this look.

  26. O'Connell says:

    Tilda has class in her bones. To the manner born, obviously. I think Ewan looks good in everything. He’s a sexy guy, and has it where it counts. Diane is beautiful, but why does she frequently wear clothing not flattering to her? She doesn’t know any better, I guess.

  27. Reece says:

    Bill Murray! No competition.

  28. bns says:

    Wish I were in Cannes right about now…

  29. Sara says:

    Love Diane but that dress is hideous. It seems the nineties are back; isn’t it too early for that?

  30. Hautie says:

    What I love. Is that you just know… that Murray has had all that plaid in his closet for the last 30+ years.

    That he purposely packed his suitcase with 30 year old plaid. To go to Cannes.

    How can you not love that.

    • Stellax2 says:

      Co-sign on Murray.
      Tilda looks phenomenal. Her bone structure, skin, hair, height make her a very interesting person to watch on screen and on the carpet. She could wear blood red, orange sunset and navy blue together and make it look appealing.
      I am such a fan girl when it comes to Swinton. I dragged my husband to “Let’s Talk About Kevin” and he was horrified. I raved about her the whole way home.
      Kruger loves fashion and has good sense but I do not like this outfit on her. I feel like she needs to look a bit more lady like than hooker of the night. I’m not a prude but it doesn’t suit her at all.
      Ewan-not loving the look.

  31. eileen says:

    How freaking awesome is Bill Murray?? I love him. When he showed up on Zombieland, I about lost it.
    Tilda rocks everything. She’s like Cate Blachett’s hip uber-cool sister.
    Dianne looks gorgeous in that dress…but Tilda wins….always.

  32. carlino altoviti says:

    Wow, Bill Murray is a true dandy: applause for him!

  33. skuddles says:

    Tilda kicks ass as always (and must confess, I’ve never considered Kruger all that attractive).

    Awesome to see Bill Murray! I’ve had a weird little crush on him for ages :)

  34. ezra says:

    (….and no one can rock that suit like Bill)

  35. telesma says:

    I actually like Diane Kruger a lot better than I like Tilda Swinton, but on this, Tilda WINS. I love what she’s wearing. So elegant and sophisticated. Very nice, tasteful. Sadly, Diane looks like she was dressed by a 14 year old girl.

  36. Belle says:

    Only tons of coverage for Diane if Joshua Jackson is around, please(;

  37. Twez says:

    Bill Murray’s suit is by Fck You, I’m Bill Murray, Incorporated.

  38. Emily says:

    That photo of Bill Murray and Bruce Willis… They seem like such an odd pairing, but make perfect sense as well. Wish I could go to the pub with them…

  39. bea says:

    I love what Tilda is wearing. So perfect. And Bill Murray. They both nailed it.
