John Travolta dusted off a very special wig for the Cannes Film Festival

71st Annual Cannes Film Festival - 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' - Premiere

Everybody can go home now. Cannes is over. John Travolta raided his Wiglet Vault and literally dusted off the saddest one, and he wore it proudly on the Cannes red carpet Tuesday night. Cannes’ Tuesday night premieres were devoted to Solo: A Star Wars Story and Gotti, which is Travolta’s film. That’s why he wore this special Dusty Grey Wolf Wiglet. That’s why Kelly was there. Enjoy.

Oh, you wanted to see some other photos from the premieres? Here’s Emilia Clarke in Dior. Beautiful aubergine and I don’t even mind the tulle fabric. But I want to attack those fugly “sleeves” with a pair of scissors. Just cut them off entirely and what’s left is the best Dior gown in years.

Doutzen Kroes in a Tom Ford. She looks incredible. Now can everyone go home?!

Hey Lando! Donald Glover was – I believe – the only man who didn’t wear a traditional black-and-white tuxedo. How Lando of him!

Thandie Newton in a custom Vivienne Westwood gown. I actually love this, because I usually love Westwood’s couture pieces. I would have just changed Thandies hair slightly – the dress is enough, there’s no need to go Full Helena Bonham Carter.

Jennifer Connelly in Louis Vuitton Fall 2018. Everything about this depresses me. The dress could have looked cute-ish, but not with those shoes and not with the too-tight slicked-back hair which makes J-Con look like a vulture/skull.

Elizabeth Debicki was there… and she posed with JOE ALWYN. Handsome Joe! Taylor Swift’s Joe. He received the Chopard Trophy for being an up-and-coming talent and for, you know, the Swift thing. I guess he got invited to the Solo premiere too. Debicki is wearing Valentino here.

    Just let yourself be balding, John. That wig is fooling no one.

  2. justcrimmles says:

    What the hell are those ruffles on his sleeves? Is his stylist a low talker?

  3. Lala says:

    I think Thandie looks GLORIOUS!

  4. Betsy says:

    Someone spent too much or not enough time in the Dreamatorium.

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    What does PETA have to say about the poor sad creature on Travolta’s head, is there a petition to free it going around?

    The colour of Emilia’s dress is beautiful.

  6. Mamasan says:

    I never realized how thin Jen Connelly is. I hope she is ok.

  7. Steph says:

    Did he steal hair from an irish wolfhound? Lol
    Emilia looks beautiful, Joe pings my gaydar.

  8. Elle says:

    Honestly I actually thought Travolta was looking kind of good? He’s slimmed down, and at least the hair isn’t that like fake perfect black… I didn’t even realise it was a wig though!

  9. Caitlin Bruce says:

    I find it funny Joe is wearing lifts. He’s was pictured beside Elizabeth the previous day and she was taller than him and now they are the same height? Baring in mind Tom Hiddleston is taller than Joe and elizabegh was taller than him too. Why do men get insecure about that shit? He’s 6”1, nothing to be ashamed about

    • Josephine says:

      she still looks taller than him now – her head is at an angle and her shoulder looks above his. and isn’t it possible that she’s wearing shoes of a different height? i very seriously doubt this guy is wearing lifts.

  10. Malificent says:

    When I first glanced at the picture, I thought it was Chris Evans after a reallllly rough night….

  11. Jayna says:

    I think he looks great, very distinguished and handsome with the grey in the hair and facial hair. Women can wear hairpieces. As long as it looks good, I don’t see the problem. I thought this hairpiece looked nice on him. He was looking horrible there for a few years with that weird black-shoe-polish hair and pasty face.

    I thought Kelly was so much prettier and fresher-looking with that cinnamon brown hair color she wore for quite a few years.

  12. SM says:

    It’s good I ignored Travolta and clicked on the post anyway. Some nice fashion from Thrandie amd Emilia (minus the sleeves). I find it funny and equaly spooky that the “gorgeous” Joe looks like an older brother of Swifty and a younger brother of Elisabeth. And I get really strange vibes from Jennifer and Paul, they continue to look misserable.

  13. Alexandria says:

    If you have to wear a wig, I think that’s pretty well installed and nicely coloured. Matches his facial hair even. A for effort.

  14. Chubcucumber says:

    Debicki won the same award as Handome Joe, that’s why they posed together.

  15. Eric says:

    I really enjoyed Travolta’s “curious george” wiglet from about 12 years ago. It was like a sandpaper hairpiece in a dusty brown-orange hue.
    Magnificent, John!

  16. Veronica S. says:

    Drive by commenting again to mention that I just saw pictures of Thandie’s dress on another site and realized it isn’t just a floral pattern – it’s STAR WARS characters!! She has Finn, Panaka, and Mace Windu on there, the nerd.

  17. susiecue says:

    I haven’t even read the article yet, but that headline has me #DED

  18. Anastasia says:

    Elizabeth looks like a gorgeous damn SWAN! Damn! Instant girl crush.

  19. Lexter says:

    I hate when men put their hand so high up a woman’s torso when putting an arm around for a photo. Ick Joe keep your mits to yaself

  20. Maum says:

    Elizabeth Debickie is somewhere between 6’1 and 6’2 I believe.
    I barely recognised her on the 1st pic- she normally stands tall and proud, here she looks like she’s trying to shrink herself!

    I thought Thandie’s hair was gorgeous! OTT but elegant and makes her look really youthful.

    JConnolly, on the other hand, looks very ill. And her legs are scary.

  21. Prissa says:

    MichaelK summed up Travolta’s look perfectly: an electrocuted and mutilated calico cat!

    Too funny!

    Although I kind of like it 😼

  22. emma peel says:

    Jennifer Connelly looks incredible – love her whole look, ditto on her husband.

  23. Avalita says:

    Doutzen Kroes looks ahhhh-mazing.

  24. BJ says:

    He needs a man weave instead of this lace front.

  25. Kim says:

    Is it possible that, after getting shit talked so much over his wigs, he just decided to stop wearing them and this is his actual hair? If so, he needs to do..something..with it. That pelt looks mangy.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      nope. he’s bald. like not quite chrome-dome but close; he’s mostly bald on top but has hair on the sides. there were pics of him with no wig somewhere, could have been on here.

      but google “Travolta no wig” and you’ll see.

  26. LittlefishMom says:

    Your title literally made me spit out my coffee. Lol!!! I’m crying.

  27. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    That’s an odd collection of photos! Thandie wins it for me. Although that black pantsuit is rockin’. Travolta. Man I don’t know. On one hand he looks better than I’ve seen him in years. On the other hand there are wrist ruffles and wiglets. The hair is still being styled the same. I’ve seen him play bald dudes, and he really should go with it. You’d think his Scientology advisors would tell him this…he’s obviously mentally sparring with his thetan which is preventing clarity and the achievement of being clear. He should revisit purification and introspection.

  28. Goodegg says:

    The next time I have to name a new character for a video game I’m playing, I am going to call them “Dusty Grey Wolf Wiglet”

  29. so cool says:

    So guy who was only in 2 films, which no one saw, won a award for rising star? They are more than 20 young actors, who achieved more than him. Seriously I know that this award is nothing and you can buy it, but still. Tay Tay bought her Toy Boy a Dior contract, now this award. No one will persuade me that he woould get it, if he wasn’t a part of Toe. He has a harisma and look of a shrimp. Just like TS.

  30. Chinoiserie says:

    Why men need to be mocked for wigs or hair plugs? Women constantly work on their appearance so why can’t men do the same with the thing they are most insecure about even if it does not look perfect?
