Charlize Theron in Dior at Cannes anniversary event: lovely or boring?

70th Annual Cannes Film Festival - 70th Anniversary Gala

Here are more photos from the HUGE Cannes Film Festival 70th anniversary event last night. Everybody came out for it. Some people even changed their clothes from the red carpet to the dinner. It was crazy. Here’s Charlize Theron in Dior on the carpet – I’m trying to figure out the leg detail? I think that the base of this is a stocking’d bodysuit/jumpsuit in delicate lace, then there’s a gown on top of that with a split leg detail so you can see the lace leg. It’s very strange. Charlize pulls it off though, as only she can.

Diane Kruger wore Dior as well, and this is maybe my favorite Dior look of Cannes. Much like Charlize, this perhaps only really great on Diane or someone like her, someone who can elevate this kind of very particular look. I will say this though – this is such an incredible look, I sort of wish she had saved it for an event like the Oscars.

Monica Bellucci in custom Chanel. The only thing I would change here is the detailing on her crotch. Why did Lagerfeld think THAT was a good idea?

Fan Bingbing in Louis Vuitton. Sack dress realness.

Naomi Campbell in Versace. Best Versace of this year’s Cannes, honestly.

And finally, Mads Mikkelsen. I’m usually not into him, but damn. I would hit it.

    I only like Naomi’s dress, she looks stunning.

    • Libra girl says:

      I was JUST going to write this exact comment. Naomi killed it, the rest no, just no.

    • sondag says:

      Charlize and Monica Belluci are STUNNING , both could wear sacks and look gorgeous. Two of the most beautiful women in films.

      • DeniseMich says:

        I agree that Charlize and Monica are STUNNING women. So, I think these dresses are appalling.

        Why the hell would you place Charlize in a Black wrapper?
        Why would you place Monica in a bronze dress that washes her out?

        Yes, they still look better than 99% but those outfits are AWFUL!

    • WhichWitch says:

      I do love Fan Bing Bing’s look too, it really works on her. That pink would look horrendous on anyone else

      • Josephine says:

        She can really do no wrong. I don’t like the pink or the shape, but somehow she makes both look good. And that face — she is so lovely!

    • Wilma says:

      Yup, only like Naomi’s dress!

  2. Louise says:

    Mads? hit it into next week!

  3. minx says:

    I’m a diehard Monica Bellucci fan girl, but that dress is not flattering.

  4. PunkyMomma says:

    I think Lagerfeld hates women, and some of these looks coming out of Cannes seem as if he’s trolling the industry.

    • WhichWitch says:

      I think he hates everyone but himself.

    • callmeishmael says:

      Word. At this stage in his career, I feel like he should be confined to making decorative toilet roll holders. Everything he does is so kitsch, and not in a good way.

  5. Sarah says:

    Well I guess I’m the only one here, I really like Fan Bingbing’s dress.

  6. Nicole says:

    Diane Kruger’s dress would look better on Elle Fanning, there’s something a little too young about it. Also, I’m sorry but Charlize Theron looks like a MESS and she’s done something to her face 🙁

  7. Elisa the I. says:

    I like all the dresses, except Diane Kruger’s black belt for BJs around her neck.

  8. laulau says:

    I really like Fan’s look, and her style in general. I don’t like the skin bleaching stuff. what an awful message to send.

  9. Giddy says:

    I think Charlize’s dress looks like Spiderwoman goes to the prom.

  10. Idky says:

    I never really cared for Charlize Theron but thought she could pull off a lot of high fashion styles that maybe others couldn’t, but lately no. Just no. She lost it.

  11. Tan says:

    All these hifi fashion houses are extremely uninteresting, uninspired and makes ugliest clothes in name of fashion.

    Maybe its time for them to go back to basics.

    Just saying…

  12. Lala says:

    Diane can do no wrong in my eyes! I’ll even look pass Norman Greasedus. She looks amazing here!

  13. Bridget says:

    When was Diane’s Dior dress shown? Because i wouldn’t be shocked to hear that it was an Oscars ‘also ran’. Diane hasn’t exactly been meriting the fresh off the runway dresses lately.

  14. Talita says:

    Love, love Mads ❤❤❤❤

  15. KiddVicious says:

    Naomi looks amazing in that dress, but it’s Naomi, she’d look great in Fan’s dress.

    I like Diane’s dress, the rest I’m meh about.

  16. Egla says:

    Monica all the way. She can wear what she wants who is even looking at that stuff when you have her lol. Also Charlize is gorgeous no words but this dress, although in e different color, reminds me of that movie with Sigorney Whiver (I know I haven’t written that right) Heart breakers, in particular that scene after the wedding when the husband wants to undress her and he can’t because of the stocking-jumpsuit underneath the dress and he cuts it with a knife. I wonder how it works for the bathroom though??? hmmmmm

    Mads is THE sex

  18. SM says:

    Charlize is the ice queen. I wonder what woild happen if she was in the same room with Nicole Kidman? She looks fantastic, she usually does. Diane’s dress is beautiful. I have these chuckles though, they look super uncomfortable.

  19. callmeishmael says:

    Mads could wear nothing and still… no, wait, he could just wear nothing. His looks are incredible and unique – something more interesting than just classically handsome, like a face from an ancient Norse carving. Half man, half warrior archetype. I bet he’s a wildfire of charisma in the flesh. Sigh.

  20. Magnoliarose says:

    The dresses are ok. Naomi’s body looks great in that dress so she elevates it for sure. Fan Bingbing’s dress would be a perfect maternity dress. She is fresh looking so she pulls it off but I am sure on others it would be hideous.

  21. BooRadley says:

    Charlize’s dress would look better without the mesh on top but I could live with just off the arms and leave the collar.
