The Cannes amfAR gala is probably the most glamourous event at the Cannes Film Festival every single year. This year’s gala was well-attended, but it seemed especially model-heavy. There weren’t very many proper actors, but at least Marion Cotillard was there to anchor the whole evening in this rather inspired look. Marion usually wears Dior for her biggest nights, so I was surprised to see her in this bright lime green gown from Jean Paul Gaultier. I LOVE IT. I love it on her specifically. Marion can be sort of airy-fairy in her style and her personality, usually choosing fanciful, at time bizarre ensembles for herself. It’s wonderful to see her looking like a proper “movie star”. She looks glamorous and perfect. Love this.
Gigi Hadid in Tom Ford. This is a white version of the gown Julianne Moore wore to the BAFTAs in February. Julianne’s version had a better fit, and Julianne’s boobs weren’t falling out like Gigi’s. Still, pretty girl and it’s a big deal for her to wear Tom Ford for such a major event. Ten bucks says that Leonardo DiCaprio has been trying to get Gigi on his yacht all week.
Dita Von Teese in Ulyana Sergeenko. I hate this on Dita. Imagine Dita is she had gone for something exquisitely glam, like Cotillard. This is a fashion fail for Dita.
Chanel Iman in Zuhair Murad Couture. Is it wrong to love this? Because I flat-out love it.
Sarah Ferguson in a conservative red gown. This is the gala-version of wearing a black pantsuit to work.
Georgina Chapman in Marchesa. Such a mess. She can’t even design clothes for herself.
Karolina Kurkova in Alexis Mabille Couture. Like Chanel Iman’s gown, I love this for what it is: big and dramatic and interesting.
Zoe Kravitz in Vionnet. SOOOO boring.
