Tara Reid overdoes the bronzer at the amFar gala: ridiculous or kind of cute?

Tara Reid

Tara Reid has been leading the bad fashion parade all week at Cannes, and last night’s AmfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala was no exception. Here Tara showed up again with Fawaz Gruosi, her possible 60ish-year-old boyfriend or “arranged companion” or whatever. All we really know is that the dude is a billionare and is far too tan for his own good. Speaking of which, Tara might have been trying to fit in better because she’s wearing a ton of bronzer. While Tara’s grey embroidered dress wasn’t as bad as the one she wore at the de Grisogono bash, this gown committed the ultimate fashion sin of being boring as hell. Tara could’ve dressed it up a bit with a high ponytail, but she chose instead to go with the boring bun. The better to see the drunkness and the overdone bronzer, I guess.

Jessie J

Jessie J wore a Louis Heal gown that I probably would have liked a lot more if it were a solid color instead of a leopard print. The asymmetrical slash across the top of the dress is only for effect because the underlying color doesn’t match Jessie’s skintone, and there’s no cleavage shining through for all to enjoy. However, that slit all the way up the leg is the real deal because check out what happens when she walks! That was almost a booty flash. Jessie’s black ankle booties are funky and fun too.

Milla Jovovich

Milla Jovovich seems slightly improved from her other disastrous Cannes looks in this Atelier Versace gown. I like that she paired her accessories to match the grey-silver-gold metallic fabric of the dress, but the molded bustier cups are seriously freaking me out. The dress also looks rather uncomforable with a corset and boning effect, but sure, it’s better than the rest of the stuff she’s worn this week. Otherwise, Milla does seem really “off” at Cannes this year, and I’m wondering if she’s possibly been replaced by one of the Alice clones from the Resident Evil movies. Either that or she’s gotten some work done on her face, which would be a shame, but hopefully Milla learned something from her vaneer catastrophe and won’t mess with her gorgeous face.

Berenice Bejo

Berenice Bejo wore a Giambattista Valli couture gown with a weather-appropriate orange white print, and she carried one of the Olympia Le Tan “book” clutches. I am not in love with this dress at all, and I think the boring hair and makeup do it no favors either. Such a lackluster look from such a beautiful woman.

    Love Tara! She looks pretty!

  2. Lacey says:

    Love that dress on Berenice Bejo! She looks beautiful

    • Maguita says:

      I really like it too!

      It seems much more appropriate, and less over the top for such an event as the others.

      Although Mila looks really great too, but her dress is just too much for a gala.

    • supalolly says:


      Luv her makeup and hair as well – so natural, suits the casual / breezy feel of the dress.

    • Happymom says:

      I agree. That dress is amazingly gorgeous. I’d love to see it in person.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Definitely the best of the bunch. I love her freckles! So cute..

  3. Lisa B. says:

    It’s funny, though Tara’s always been a trainwreck just like Cracken, I always found her endearing. Don’t now why. She looks pretty good for her standards, I guess. Not sure about this relationship, but whatever floats her boat. I hope this helps her to get her shit together.

    Milla is stunning but I can’t stand her hair. It always looks like she cut it herself, on the bathroom sink. I don’t like it.

    And Berenice. WHY SO BORING? She’s so gorgeous but she always manages to look vanilla. These things she wears don’t do her any justice.

    • Happymom says:

      I think part of the difference between Lohan and Tara train wreck situations is that we don’t hear stories about Tara acting entitled or rude, or almost running down babies in strollers. She’s just been a hot mess.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    OMG, I swear as I saw the title I misread “Tara Reid OVERDOSE” and immediately thought: good grief, how can she be overdosing before Lindsay?!

    I’m a bad person.

    • skuddles says:

      No you’re not bad RocketMerry… at first glance I thought headline read “Reid overdoes the booze”… see, you’re not alone 🙂

  5. Gwen says:

    I’ve got to be honest and say I think they all look quite good to me. Tara might be a mess but she cleans up well from time to time.

    • Cherry says:

      Agreed. What´s this ´bronzer overdose´ you´re referring to? She looks fine. By the way, I´m a bit confused about this Jessie J character. Remind me where I should know her from?

      • Zelda says:

        Yeah, I think her bronzer looks okay. She overdid the makeup in general, a bit, but it’s an evening event in what is likely low lighting. Par for the course.
        I don’t like the dress, though. Find it 90s-looking.

      • barbi says:

        I think she looks good also. As far as Jessie J. My daughter tells me every time one her songs comes, after she has taken over my XM in the car, that she is a singer. Haha. I can never guess that one right, they all sound the same to me. Guess I’m too old. 😉

  6. Zelda says:

    I think those book purses look silly.
    They make you look like you just got dragged to whatever event you’re at, against your will.

  7. Chrissy says:

    I don’t think Tara looks bad at all. I don’t think she looks all that overly done with bronzer either, not when you compare her to the man that is her escort. Still, she looks better in the picture by herself, rather than in the picture next to the tall woman who looks like a supermodel.

  8. marie says:

    Tara-the other chick with them looks better.

    Jessie J-really like her dress and she looks good, but I’m not a fan of the booties.

    Milla-looks better and somewhat more like herself.

    Bernice-like the dress, except the top. It makes her look like she’s waering a granny shawl.

  9. nettie says:

    I would have loved a high ponytail on Tara as well. The dress is great and i don’t see an overload of bronzer…I do not like the Waity-eyeliner. She looks pretty good in my opinion.

    • Zelda says:

      Yep. The Waity eyeliner. If you want to do think liner, you have to do something darker with the crease. Otherwise, you end up looking like you have a Leeann Rimes squint.

  10. jamie says:

    I love the dresses Mila and Bernice Bejo are wearing. With Tara Reid it’s just nice to see her wearing something conservative even if it is boring. She always looks high and cheap.

  11. Blue says:

    I think everyone looks good except for MJ. Tara can clean up nicely when she needs to. I love Jessie J’s dress, but I want to slaughter those boots.

  12. valleymiss says:

    I think Tara looks gorgeous. A bigger makeup crime than the bronzer is, as others have pointed out, the Waity eyeliner (although Tara did it first! Lol She’s been doing the inner eyelid lining for as long as she’s been famous, while I don’t think Waity lines the inner lid, but just does a thick outer line). Tara thinks the black makes her blue eyes pop but honestly, I think it hides them. She has amazing eyes, but when I look at her face, all I see is eyeliner. She needs to tone it down a lot.

  13. AfroSappho says:

    I like Jessie J’s dress, but not on her. The boots are a catastrophe.

    I realize this is nitpicking and bitchy, but I really hate her face. I just can’t look at it for more than three seconds.

    Now, I can look at Milla forever. She is so stunning. She could smear herself in vomit for all I care. I’ll just cover my nose and scream, “WORK!”

  14. TruthTella says:

    Tara looks fine, If she’d done something better with her hair she’d look better but she’s looking ok, the dress is kind of boring though.

    Jessie J looks great IMO and so does Mila although the book cups (is that what they’re called??? LOL) look too small.

  15. Agnes says:

    tara actually looks put-together and good! wow.

  16. Stubbylove says:

    This Fawaz dude is a pimp! Why is Milla so posehard lately?

  17. original kate says:

    i love berenice’s freckles.

    milla’s boobs look like they are getting ready to burst into song. and whatever she’s doing to her face is not good.

    tara…oh tara. i just want take her home and feed her something healthy. i’d lock up the liquor cabinet first, of course.

  18. Nance says:

    Better than EVER! Good for her. Maybe too orange on the face, but she’s ok.

  19. Marycontrary says:

    I think Tara looks really good here. I don’t see the overdone bronzer.

    Berenice Bejo is simply amazing. A true natural beauty. Wow!

  20. FeverDream says:

    What in the hell is this article talking about?

    Tara Reid looks great for once.
    And healthy and sober too.

  21. sup says:

    no way has milla improved. while her face looks less botoxy, that dress is hideous. and no comment about the others. god, with all the money they have, this is the best that these people can do?

  22. Dubbie says:

    Berenice and Mila look FAB! I’m not crazy about Berenice’s sleeves, but that print and the flow of the gown is just gorgeous.

    I liked Jessie J’s look until I saw the booties and those ridiculous slits.
