Cannes amfAR gala: Sharon Stone in red Cavalli & many plunging necklines

Sharon Stone

The annual Cannes amfAR gala is Sharon Stone‘s baby. She loves to get tipsy (some might say sloppy drunk) and host the auction. This year, we haven’t heard any reports of Sharon laying kisses all over the male nearest her podium, so maybe she kept a lid on her drinking. Better luck next time.

Sharon wore a scarlet red Roberto Cavalli gown that was classy up top and near the bottom. The dress draped beautifully, and everything is fine if we don’t look at the awkward “cut-out” belt around her stomach. Those holes continue around the back of the dress too. How unfortunate.

Heidi Klum will surprise us someday by showing up to an event in a really amazing dress. This was not that event. Heidi wore Atelier Versace, and the dress looked decent on the runway. It was meant for a smaller breasted woman, but Heidi loves to bust out whenever possible. Even better? Busting out in a super embellished dress with a thigh-high slit while sporting a super orange fake tan. Never change, Heidi.

Rosario Dawson wore a navy Vionnet dress with cap sleeves and a deep-v mesh panel dressed up with a faux scoop neckline. Everything about this dress is awkward, and it doesn’t seem dressy enough for a gala. From the neck up, Rosario looks amazing. This dress is a complete “no.”

Barbara Palvin is one odd chick. She’s got a wacky personality that comes through in photos and even weirder taste in men (if Justin Bieber qualifies as a man). I can’t find the ID on this dress, but Barbara went very dramatic. She went vampy in a black gown with sheer legs, a plunging neckline, and granny panties shining through. It’s not awful.

Kelly Preston and John Travolta brought the CO$ discomfort to the gala. These two always look so wrong together, but they’re in it for the long haul. Kelly’s wearing Oliver Tolentino couture. The red lace looks really budget and itchy. John’s wearing a Sharpie work of art on his chin.

Jane Fonda keeps on killing it this red carpet season. She hasn’t embarrassed herself at all this year, and this gorgeous Atelier Versace dress is no exception. She’s 76 years old, and she’s better dressed than most of the ladies here.

Paz Vega chose a Fitriani couture dress with a dramatic plunging neckline that barely contained her girls. The structured hips are a risky move, but the slight fishtail and tiny belt help rein in the dress as a whole. I like it.

Liu Wen wore a pale blue Vionnet gown that looked like a cut-out nightmare. This dress reminds me a lot of January Jones’ 2011 Golden Globes Versace dress except that it’s not Versace. It’s Vionnet, so it’s a sloppy mess. The runway version included a white t-shirt.

Kylie Minogue looks ravishing in a Juan Carlos Obando dress. Satin can look messy and budget, but this dress is so well cut and tailored. She’s glowing.

Jess Weixler looked amazing in a soft blue Martin Grant gown. She looked old school and glamorous, but the statement neckline gave the dress an updated vibe.

Natasha Poly wore an emerald-green Marni gown with a structured bodice and a strange peplum. It’s beginning to look … a lot like Christmas?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley broke out the Emilio Pucci with major cutouts on the side. I guess the strappy sandals match the cutouts, but this dress would have been so pretty in a solid material. A rare smile from Rosie does help the overall look.

Izabel Goulart wore a frothy, blush pink Atelier Versace gown. This dress is deceptively complex and wonderfully tailored. Izabel let the dress do the talking with swept back hair and a simple de Grisogono diamond necklace.

    A festival of fashion fails.

    • blue marie says:

      + 1, I don’t like any of them.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      Except Paz Vega…. but i agree
      Sharon Stone’s face …waooo! Nicole kidman needs to ask her the name of her plastic surgeon doctor

      • BooBooLaRue says:

        Paz for the win! I need Sharon’s plastic surgeon, well executed! And sorry but Jane Fonda looks like an old timey saloon gal. . .

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Really? I like a lot of them..the pink Atelier Versace gown is so stunning with those wispy pieces coming off of the bottom.

      Not crazy about the peach color but the Juan Carlos Obando dress is the first time I’ve seen satin look good.

      I also love Heidi and Paz’s gowns. Sharon’s would be amazing if not for those tragic cutouts.

      Also, when will the sheer dress trend end? It looks like they’re wearing a body suit with a see-through skirt over it-it’s just so fug and I have yet to see this style flatter anyone.

      • Kiddo says:

        The peach gown is very bridesmaid-ish to me; the color and fabric. Same with the emerald-green Marni gown. I might have liked the Paz gown without the distorted fabric at the hip, even she looks self-conscious about it, pushing it down while posing.

        Okay, I’ll give you that the pink Atelier Versace gown is pretty, but there is no real new ground broken: it seems like a lot of dresses I’ve seen before and the hairstyling seems completely off with it. Sharon Stone’s dress is a mess. The girls are flopping and flailing with no support or structure at the top and those open circles are heinous enough for me to hate it, even if there weren’t issues at the top.

        Also, I feel crappy so maybe that’s contributing, but I feel like either the dresses were seen before (boring) or they were terrible.

    A few random comments:

    Sharon looks fab but agree that the cut outs around the hips are TACKY – but then it’s Cavalli, so what do you expect?

    Kylie looks lovely, and less botoxy than usual. But maybe a close-up would tell a different story?

    Rosie looks SO much better when smiling and not doing that ridiculous catching-flies-with-her-mouth thing.

    Heidi is just Heidi.

    Jane Fonda. Just wow.

  3. Londerland says:

    Heidi looks a lot like Stacey Keiblee here, no? Weird.

  4. Hannah says:

    I now see why Kylie wears so may super-short dresses (apart from the fact that she still has a killer figure): she looks so short in that gown.

    Heidi was so gorgeous at the Emmys in 2005. She had just given birth a couple of days earlier and she wore a rather flowing Dior dress. It was spectacular. She’s never looked as good since.

  5. LadyMTL says:

    So many boooooobs, lol. I mean, I love going bra-less as much as I can but yowza.

  6. Hmmm says:

    I’d rather see pictures of Conchita, the bearded drag queen from Austria (she was there too)
    than John Travolta. Conchita is not afraid to show who she is, Travolta is a gutless joke!

  7. lucy2 says:

    Wow, those cut outs on Sharon’s dress! Who on earth thought that was a good idea to put them there of all places?
    Jane looks good but I wish the dress were a richer color.
    There has been some terrible fashion this year at Cannes.

  8. Tig says:

    Sharon is stunning, but that dress is awful. And sorry, at 50+, anyone’s ta-tas need some assistance! See Jane Fonda- wonderfully dressed for the red carpet. And why no Sophia Lauren pics?

  9. Nev says:

    Kylie!!!!!! yes she is glowing!!!

  10. Dhavynia says:

    Rose’s dress reminds me of Elizabeth Hurley’s pins dress

  11. Aussie girl says:

    Rosario dress does her figure nooooooo favours what so ever. I mean WHAT SO EVER! It makes her boobs look saggy and her whole body over all looks dumpy, which I’m sure it isn’t! She needs to take that dress and burn it!!

  12. TG says:

    I love the Christmas green dress that one woman is wearing. I also realized that I don’t know who have of these ladies are.

  13. K-rock says:

    She’s got great boobs for her age. I mean even in my late teens-early 20′s I could never go braless, they just were never perky enough.

    That dress would have been a win without the cut out holes around her stomach.

  14. Melissa says:

    I think Liu Wen looks the best of these, her dress is a great color.

  15. serena says:

    Loving Jane Fonda’s dress!

    On another note.. what the heck is that thing on your chin John????? So awful, makes me want to slap it.

  16. Krista says:

    Dear John,
    That…thing on your chin is off center.
    Love always, Krista

  17. Adrien says:

    Sharon Stone, you rock. I hope she’s not there to promote that icky John Turturo movie.

  18. daisyfly says:

    That last Versace gown gives me life!

    Jorn Tromolto’s dyed Ken wig on his chin then sucks that life right out of me.

  19. MissTrial says:

    This post is hilarious, one of the best I’ve read on CB.

    The Heidi Klum stuff is priceless!

    Jane Fonda is a wow. Rosario Dawson’s dress is too tight in addition to being ugerlee.
    That “Christmas” dress is wrinkled. I love Sharon Stone in that color and dress minus the weird cutouts, it could have been nice with ‘filled in’ faux cutouts or something in that same embellishing. I just love her style tho, her ‘tude shines through. Just one weeked I would like to hang out with her, I bet it would be a blast.

  20. punkinhootus says:

    I’m pretty sure I saw Sharon’s dress on an episode of My Super Sweet 16. On a fifteen year old. Her mother wouldn’t let her buy it.

  21. taxi says:

    The plunging-ever-deeper necklines & cutouts everywhere have gotten boring.
    What’s with Jane’s pink bracelets? Fancified carpal tunnel wrist supports? The solid brace shows on her left arm. She’s amazing & gorgeous & admits to p.s., along with a couple of major joint replacements. Hip & maybe knee.

  22. Aurelia says:

    I totally remember Heidi in that flowing gown at the 2005 awards. The one and only time she looked good, klassy etc.

    Didn’t Jan Jones first wear the ice blue number that Lui Wen is wearing.

    That Paz bird looks amazing.

    Everybody else is blllllllllaaaaahhhhh. Except maybe the beautiful Indian bird.

  23. Anne tommy says:

    Some nice frocks- and while not a huge fan of the cut outs, Sharon Stone looks fab – but Heidi Klum looks hard and classless in most of what she wears and this time was no exception.
