Kristen Stewart in Chanel at the Cannes amfAR gala: stunning or unflattering?

71st annual Cannes Film Festival - AmfAR Gala

I feel like most gossip-driven people have been more focused on royal drama this week, so the Cannes Film Festival was somewhat ignored, or at least Cannes didn’t get the kind of attention it normally does. Frankly, Cannes was boring this year before the royal drama really reached its crescendo this week anyway. But the fashion girls are still there, and some of them even came out for the annual Cannes amfAR benefit. Kristen Stewart is on the Cannes jury, but she’s also been doing fashion-y events throughout the festival, almost always clad in Chanel. The amfAR gala was no different, although I don’t think Chanel gave K-Stew the best dress. And who did her makeup?? My goodness.

Here’s Nicole Scherzinger in Georges Hobeika Spring 2018. Honestly, she looks beautiful. Of course she looks a bit plastic too, but beautiful nonetheless.

Here’s Paris Hilton with her fiance, WhatsHisGuts (I don’t care!). Honestly, if Paris’s dress had been full lined, it would have been my favorite dress of the amfAR carpet. As it is though, it’s just kind of tacky.

Here’s Heidi Klum and her boyfriend Tom Kaulitz. They’ve been dating for a few months. He’s German and 28 years old. She’s German and 44 years old. Mazel.

Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith. Lovely couple.

Toni Garrn looked very pretty in a very bad dress.

Cannes bonus: while everyone was at the amfAR gala, Cate Blanchett wore this Givenchy ensemble to a Cannes premiere. It’s very… sculptural. Those pants!! If she just wore the pants with a chintzy blouse, those would be Golden Girls pants.

    Heidi is dating Bill from Tokio Hotel!?!?! Oh my God, my teenage self is a bit heartbroken.

    I love Kstew’s makeup, but the hair is awful. The cut isn’t that bad, but the yellow highlights are horrible.

  2. Beth says:

    Yikes! Kristens hair, makeup,and dress are all very unflattering.

  3. tracking says:

    Once more I love KStew’s and Cate B’s ensembles (but for KS’s posture again). The detail work in the Chanel is so, so beautiful and both uncommon silhouettes are very appealing to me.

  4. Lala says:

    I’ve seen all of Kristen’s fashions from Cannes…and I gotta say…there isn’t ONE LOOK THAT I DID NOT LOVE!!!! She’s been my consistent favorite this year…hands down! Especially the HAIR (but, that’s probably cause I’m rocking a similar style right now…it’s AMAZING what you can do with a choppy, layered mohawk!!!)

    • jasper says:

      YES YES YES It makes me want to cut my hair too…I was always a bit afraid to go for such a bold, short look because I couldn’t figure out how to style it properly, without having the hair constantly in my face and spending a ridiculous amount of time in front of the mirror. But the things her stylist did for her this week are amazing and I’m so booking an appointment for next week.

    • Llamas in pajamas says:

      I keep loving her fashion game, as well. Not a fan of the lipstick this time. Too bright.

  5. Josephine says:

    I kinda like Kristen’s dress, especially from a distance. It gives her a bit of shape. But I find almost all of the chanel stuff a bit too matronly, especially for someone so petite. This would have looked better at a different length, I think.

    She wore a really great pant/blazer outfit later — can’t wait to see that one. It really suited her for once.

    • Chaine says:

      I like it from a distance too, But in the closeup the fabric looks like what they used to make lawn chairs out of.

  6. Peeking in says:

    The dress is fine, but Kristen’s makeup looks ridiculous.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      I like the dress very much, but on her, the makeup is atrocious. I think it’s the color palette(?) vs how much makeup…

  7. Ina says:

    Kristen looks amazing here! She usually mutes herself with her looks but this color really brings out her features and makes her look so feminine. Love it

  8. Wow says:

    Golden girls pants!!!!! Love it

  9. Ninks says:

    Oh when will the big knickers/sheer skirt look die. It’s as fugly as sin and nobody looks good in it.

    • TheRickestRick says:

      Right?! How is this still a thing?! It should never have been a thing in the first place!

  10. Jayna says:

    That light brown hair on Heidi is so flattering. She looks years younger. I once had a casual friend I know who was always blonde. She had a skin tone like Heidi and was usually tan because of living in Florida. I never thought any other color would suit her but blonde. But one day I ran into her and she had light brown hair. Wow. Her blue eyes popped. She looked so much softer looking, younger. She was 33, 34 at the time.

    That lipstick Kristen has on is horrible. I love her hair.

  11. Skippy says:

    I like Nichole’s dress.

  12. EMc says:

    I don’t mind Kristens bright pink lip, but combined with the eyeshadow.. It just reminds me of a middle schooler dabbling in makeup.

  13. Hazel says:

    Cate Blanchett needs to lay off whatever she’s been doing to her face.

  14. jasper says:

    It is a bit of a fail, I must admit, but at least Kristen stayed ‘true to herself’, whatever that means.

    I’m just a bit disappointed you didn’t talk about her KNIFE + HEART premiere look from yesterday because THAT WAS EVERYTHING. – there was no slouching and no awkward posing and NO HEELS. she looked amazing, perfect in that suit and nobody can deny that.

  15. NorthernLala says:

    The 80’s did her makeup – like totally! 🙂
    She needs to break up with Chanel.

  16. SM says:

    I am not a Kristen fan but I give her credit where credit is due, she usually has perfect make up other times it’s aweful attempt at avant-garde but somehow she still pulls it off. Like here. It is a bit clownish and it would look aweful on anyone else but her, so I still kind of enjoy it. Her hair on the other hand. She need to find a new trend, this “i have no time for haircare like washing, brushing or getting roots done” look is not good

  17. smee says:

    I like K Stews dress – the pattern is flattering. Unfortunately, her go-to poses (hands on hips with legs apart or limp rag) always detract from the look. I think I see hairpins in her hair.

    Nicole Scherzinger managed to make a sheer dress look good. Very pretty dress. She should ease-up on the shimmery highlighter.

    This is my least favorite Cate Blanchett look this week. Almost looks like she paired the elaborate top from a two piece with a pair of biz slacks. Odd. She still looks good, very dramatic and red-carpet appropriate.

  18. Patricia says:

    What’s happening to me…. I LOVE Kristin’s makeup and her dress. I don’t think many women could pull this off but I think she looks amazing.

  19. Daisy says:

    Kristen’s makeup is done by Jillian Dempsey (Patrick Dempsey’s wife) and this woman is ridiculously bad at doing makeup for a so called makeup artist. Take a look at her insta account, I think my 2 year old could do a better job. I feel like the people she does makeup for are her friends and they know she will be upset if they go with someone else… also feel like she got into the business because of her famous husband and his connections.

    • Skittlebrau says:

      My six year old was looking over my shoulder and said “wow, her make up is so pretty!” So there you go, lol.

  20. Veronica S. says:

    I like Kirsten’s dress a lot, though I do think its length may work best on taller women. I *reluctantly* admit that I like Paris Hilton’s dress, even without the lining, though she definitely brings out the tackiness in everything she wears.

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    KS looks like a marionette. Someone should help her stand. I’m not digging anything really I think my favorite would have been PH’s dress had it been lined and had a different dominent color palette. Don’t do yellow lol.

  22. Lucy says:

    Back in the day (about ten years ago), I used to find Tom Kaulitz SO HOT. Honestly, he was a really good looking kid. Now…not so much. Although his face hasn’t really changed that much, besides the hair and beard. I still think it’s crazy he’s dating Heidi!!

  23. Llamas in pajamas says:

    There is only one who could pull off Paris’ dress and that is Jennifer Lopez in 2000. The Versace was better tho.

  24. Pandy says:

    Not a big fan of Kristen’slook. Toni Garn is hilarious!! Like an Amazon planet outfit from a vintage Star Trek episode. She’s be Captain Kirks love interest.

  25. PlayItAgain says:

    Kristen is on the jury? Huh. I wonder how much that cost Chanel to buy…

  26. what's inside says:

    Nicole looks great. Paris not so much. Kristin – this look works for her.

  27. tearose11 says:

    I actually like the Dior dress on Ms Grumpy. But the make-up is HIDEOUS.

    And I love seeing Pierce Brosnan and his gorgeous wife – they always look so genuinely happy.

  28. NJNC says:

    Does anyone else remember Keely as a garden/plant and flower expert on a talk show in the 80s or 90s? My mother used to watch it but that’s all I remember about it.

  29. Cheche says:

    I like KStew’s dress except for the extra stripe on the sleeves and looking at the close up, it looks like there’s some cut out nonsense going on in back. Too many things going on. Edit, people, edit.

    hold up! Heidi Klum is dating Tom Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel!!! SINCE WHEN?! :-O
