Kendall Jenner in Roberto Cavalli at Cannes: surprisingly good or just meh?


Here are some photos from this weekend’s multiple red carpet premieres at the Cannes Film Festival. I’m trying to keep up with the actual premiere photos and I have been mostly ignoring the party photos. Cannes has become such a cottage industry that there are all of these exclusive parties where only one photo agency is allowed to photograph the event, and as such, we don’t always get access to certain party photos. But everybody gets to shoot the premieres. So here’s Kendall Jenner in Roberto Cavalli. We haven’t seen a ton of Cavalli at this year’s Cannes, but it seems like Cavalli is really trying to get his gowns on the younger ladies, like Kendall and Bella Hadid. Is it wrong that I sort of like this on Kendall? It’s not the best thing – the best thing was perhaps her Calvin Klein at the Met Gala – but it’s a solid, interesting look for her.


Marion Cotillard in Dior. At first, I didn’t realize that there was that weird black fabric block on the collar. What is that? Why is that part of the design? Anyway, this is pretty great on Marion and she looks beautiful. I just would have made some minor edits to the gown and it would have been perfect.


Aishwarya Rai in Rami Kadi May, with lavender lips. As I’ve said, I will always defend her beauty, but her style is another story. I actually went through a phase in college when I did silver-lavender lips too. Looking back, I don’t know what I was thinking. I looked like a corpse. Aish might want to rethink this.



Sonam Kapoor in a customized Ralph & Russo gown, with a built-in cape. I think this would have been more interesting in another color. With the white, the whole thing just reads as too bridal.


Vanessa Paradis in Elie Saab Fall 2016. This is awful.


Riley Keough in Gucci Cruise 2016. This is worse than Paradis’ Elie Saab. Why would you wear this bile-colored fug dress?! EVER?

    Kendall looks too young for this look. She looks like a child playing dress up. Maybe its just the styling, but I’m not a fan.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      My thoughts exactly. This is like something Sharon Stone would have worn promoting Basic Instinct in 1990-whatever. Maybe if you’re like Jada Pinkett rocking the badass female vibe you can get away with it, but it definitely takes the right vibe and some serious life experience to pull this one off.

    • Petee says:

      When is the see through dress going to go away?I don’t care how good you look it is not a good look.And Kendull looks like a little girl playing dress up.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Did you see the back of the dress? She sure is a part of the Koven … sheesh…

  2. Nev says:

    Kendall is gorgeous!!!! Wow!!!

  3. paolanqar says:

    Honestly she looks fantastic here. Especially her makeup.

  4. Locke Lamora says:

    As pretty much every Cavalli dress ever, it looks tacky. As pretty much every Kardashian ever, Kendall is tacky. A match made in heaven. She looks bad.
    Kendall and Emily Ratajsomething are morphing into the same person.

    Marion looks awful. Ugly dress, ugly colour, ugly hair, ugly everything. She looked so much better at the photocall.

    Sonam Kapoor is one of the prettiest women I have ever seen.

    • guest says:

      Why is she there? This is not hate but a honest question, Does her mother book her to every event there’s a red carpet? No K/J needs any exposure, they have tv shows, pap walks and social media for that.
      So why does she show up everywhere,just to put in a dress and pose?
      The Hadids as well. Am I missing something?

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Eh, models are eveywhere in Cannes promoting fashion and beauty lines.
        As much as they want it to feel exclusive, Cannes is as tacky as they come. Much tackier than Berlinale for an example.

      • Greenieweenie says:

        I think many are there for makeup contracts, mainly L’Oreal. Kendall has one, I forget which brand.

    • Lex says:

      I agree with everything.

      Can we please retire the slick back hairstyle? No one looks good with it.

    • swak says:

      If you see pictures of the back of Kendall’s dress, her rear end is showing. I have said she is just as much of a fame monger as the rest of them, but more subtle.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        She lucked out with being tall and skinny. If she wasn’t she’d be just like Kylie, maybe worse.

        While Kim and Kylie are so very vapid, they seem like nice people deep down. Kendall amd Khloe have that mean streak Kris has.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        I agree that Kendall lucked out by being tall and skinny, because if any of her curvier sisters or any other celebrity with more curves wore that, negative reactions would be less tame. I like this look though.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        She also had plastic surgery, but because Kylie’s has been so over the top, she flew under the radar

  5. Payapa says:

    I like Aish’s lipstick.
    *covers head and runs away*

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I love it. But not with tht dress.

      • LannisterForever says:

        I agree. The lipstick looks awesome and the dress is beautiful, but they don’t look good together.

    • Otaku Fairy says:

      I actually really like that shade of lipstick for her. I like the color and pattern on the dress too- that and the lipstick seem to go well together- but not the cut and style of the dress.

  6. The New Classic says:

    Did Vanessa have to get a Brazilian wax to wear that dress?

  7. Bom says:

    Arrgghhh that Gucci. Did they fire Frida Giannini for this? Every single outfit of their new designer screams disaster

    • Spittair says:

      I don’t know what’s going on with Gucci lately but other than the shoes, they’ve been seriously missing the mark. Their ambassador/model/muse, Charlotte Casiraghi, has been wearing some of the ugliest designs I’ve ever seen. Her MET dress was a mess.

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Well that was a fug parade.

  9. Spittair says:

    I think Kendall looks fabulous. Aishwayra’s lipstick is horrible. A nude or earthy pink would’ve saved this look.

  10. iseepinkelefants says:

    She was standing next to Kris in one photo and it was like woah that’s your future. Never realized what twins they looked like. Cavali is actually perfect for Cannes. Whenever I see his clothes I think “Saint Tropez hooker”. And this dress is actually not as tacky as most of his work. Getting the 20 year olds to dress older than their age actually fits his aesthetic.

    Gucci is just tragic. They have gone so down hill. Their designs don’t even make sense. It’s like they’re intentionally trying to be hideous.

    • Myrna says:

      Oh yes…I agree about Kendall looking just like Kris.
      It’s mostly the eyes.
      But I think if you look back at pics of a younger Kris, she wasn’t as stunning as Kendall at the same age.
      Not even close.

      I LOVE everything Kendall wears, no matter what.
      She’s incredible looking.

      There is NO ONE whose face – not even Aish – compares to Marion Cotillard.
      Her face is exquisite.
      I’d like to see this gold gown from the back.
      I suspect the black at the neckline is a long scarf or something.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Eh, Kendall has really beautiful eyes. The rest is fine.

        Marion is pretty, but she always makes this facial expression where she looks like she just smelled a fart.

    • Myrna says:

      I think that expression on Marion is sweet, but I get how you see it otherwise.

      Just saw on Lainey the gold dress from other angles.
      That black think is just a standup accessory thing and you can see black down the side, too.
      The back is low cut – I think it’s gorgeous, but Lainey disagrees.

      There are other pics of her in a denim thing – LOVE her blunt cut beach hair.
      She looks so youthful and gorgeous.

      Then there’s the structured purple top and gorgeous leather pants.
      Stunning…I want to be her! LOL

  11. suzysunshine says:

    Kendall’s dress at the Met Gala was Versace not Calvin. I think this one looks great on her as well, and in my opinion the bile colored Gucci is lovely.

  12. teacakes says:

    Gucci profits (clothes/accessories, not just perfume) have been up by a lot since Alessandro Michele took over so even if hi’s red carpet doesn’t always work, clearly he’s doing something right since people are voting with their wallets.

    I can’t believe we’re at the day when a dead-eyed Klan offshoot is the lead picture of a CB post, ahead of an Oscar-winning actress who’s a known clotheshorse.

  13. Mike says:

    Aishwarya Rai is easily the most beautiful woman in the world. Wow. Even the terrible blue lipstick can’t hide that.

  14. Adrien says:

    I like Vanessa Paradis’ look. Aishwarya’s lipstick reminds me of that blacklight neon makeup they used in Wake Me Up BeforeYou Go-go.

    • Calcifer says:

      Agreed. Vanessa has been looking beautiful in Cannes this year.

      I am happy for her because ever since separating from Depp in 2012 she has seemed a bit haggard and plain to me (strangely, because she was supposedly in love with Benjamin Biolay).

      Today she seems older, sadder and wiser, but definitely beautiful again.

  15. Magnoliarose says:

    All of it is ugly and some are downright cheap looking. Those earrings on Kendall with that fug dress are just overkill.

  16. minx says:

    Riley Keough’s dress…I don’t even know what to say.

  17. Specialp says:

    KJ looks smokin hot and should be wearing pieces like this. Her body was made for it.

  18. Grant says:

    Kendall looks fabulous. Love the dress, love the makeup, love the hair, love the jewels. Grand slam.

  19. claire says:

    Kendall just seems too plain, to me, to be modeling a lot of these dresses. The clothes are wearing her, not vice versa. She doesn’t bring any ambience at all.

  20. Deedee says:

    The nude dress and slicked back hair on Kendall just looks and feels so dated already. Also, the bust padding in the dress doesn’t match her skin tone, which cheapens the effect for me.

  21. Clairej says:

    She is so boring though. Everyday the Daily Mail has more and more articles about her. I would understand if she was interesting, but she is far from it. Sure she looks pretty, but that is all she brings. Vanessa looks cool.

  22. kri says:

    I love Aishwarya’s lips. She is just so amazing.

    • Kate says:

      Me too. Surely part of the point if makeup is fun? Not everyone wants to wear a mid tone rosy nude lipstick everyday of their lives.
