There should be an international law that Aishwarya Rai cannot wear anything that tries to distract from her face. I’ve already discussed how magnificently beautiful she is, but she really needs to keep it simple! This Ralph & Russo Couture gown is too much!! Aish attended last night’s Cannes Film Festival premiere of Youth, and while she was easily one of the most stunning women there, more people could have admired her beauty if she wasn’t wearing this crazy half-origami gown. PS… You know what else she needed? Darker lipstick.
Petra Nemcova in Zuhair Murad Spring 2015. The peplum kills it for me. If this had been a sleeker two-piece ensemble, like a fitted silk jacket with no peplum and a chiffon skirt, it would have worked a lot better.
Chanel Iman in Donna Karan Atelier. One of the few Donna Karan appearances at Cannes from what I’ve seen. I like it! It’s a good example of how to do that shiny satin really well. The fit is great, which is absolutely necessary.
Karlie Kloss in Louis Vuitton. I think I’ve hated every Louis Vuitton look so far at Cannes. This is no different. It’s totally wrong for this red carpet. Worn to a premiere in NYC? Sure, it would be fine. But it looks more like she’s just going to some after-parties rather than walking one of the biggest red carpets in the world.
Joan Smalls in Alaïa. She wasn’t the only one doing the midriff-bearing thing on this red carpet (Kendell Jenner did it too). I like Alaïa, but this doesn’t even seem like Alaïa. It’s too flouncy, not body-con enough. I’m just not feeling it.
Barbara Palvin in Versace. Yes, the skirt has some weird sheer panels. I like the idea of a younger model in classic black Versace, but I think the sheer sleeves might make this look too “mature” for her. She’s young enough to have hooked up with Justin Bieber (that happened a few years ago too). She shouldn’t be in a gown that I could easily see on Jane Fonda.
Lara Stone is some kind of hot mess in this vintage Gianni Versace gown. They probably opened up the archives for her, but this is not what they should have chosen for poor Lara. It doesn’t fit her!!!
