Honestly, this year’s Cannes Film Festival has been lacking in some serious glamour and some serious star wattage. Yes, Julia Roberts came out and yes, Kristen Stewart was the It Girl of the festival. But high-wattage moments were few and far between. So I had high hopes for this year’s Cannes amfAR gala, but the turnout was severely muted. Uma Thurman was quite literally one of the few “bright spots” at amfAR. Uma chose this hot pink Schiaparelli Couture gown which… looks amazing. It’s a great dress and she looks wonderful.
Melissa George also wore Schiaparelli Couture. This reminds me of… like, Prada circa 2003? The layered fabric also adds weight to her midsection in a really unflattering way.
Irina Shayk in Miu Miu. This is fine. It fits, it’s flirty, it’s pretty and it’s uncontroversial. I’m sure lots of women would love to own this dress. The only thing I have to ask is… are those bejeweled candy canes on the bodice?!
Helen Mirren wore this rather magical Temperley London gown. It’s such a joy to see her on the red carpet, and I always love to see what she’s chosen. This one is a little bit matronly, but the sheer parts help make it look somewhat hip.
Here’s doucheface Adrien Brody and his girlfriend Lara Lieto. Lara wore a surprisingly pretty Zuhair Murad gown in mint green. She still looks so, so young though.
