Amber Heard in Claes Iversen at the Cannes Film Festival: terrible or okay?

Premiere 'Les Misérables', Cannes Film Festival 2019

The first few premiere nights for the Cannes Film Festival have been very muted, right? When last year’s Cannes was quiet too, I remember someone calling it the “Harvey Weinstein effect” or something like that – basically, now that Weinstein had been outed, shady producers weren’t using Cannes as a hunting ground for beautiful women so much. Plus, it just feels like fewer women are going to Cannes just to be seen. Maybe the Friday and Saturday premieres will be more glamorous.

Anyway, one of the big “gets” for last night’s premiere screening of Les Miserables was Amber Heard. I’m assuming she came out as part of some beauty or jewelry contract. It wasn’t a fashion contract, I know that. She wore this Claes Iversen gown which… is not good. THAT BELT. It looks like one of those belts weightlifters use for their backs, right? It’s too wide, too mismatched, too brown-flesh colored, too leather. I also think she should embrace color – she wears a lot of black and cream and pale gold. Her jewelry is Chopard.

Les Miserable premiere at Cannes Film Festival

Elle Fanning is a jury member and she’s already been delivering some LEWKS. This Valentino gown looks like it came straight from the runway and that Elle styled it exactly the way Valentino wanted her to. Very fairy-princess, very Queen of the Woodland Nymphs.

Julianne Moore in Louis Vuitton – the dress isn’t leather, just the caplet is leather. I want to see the dress! But yeah, this is not Julianne’s best.

    All of these are no good. And that color on amber does her no good either. Blends into her skin and you can’t differentiate between skin and dress. Don’t get me started on the belt…..

    • Eliza says:

      It’s also a dress that looks good under spotlight or flash, daylight makes the sequins look flat and only emphasizes how unflattering the color is on her.

    • Yup, Me says:

      They also painted her skin with pearlescent white color. I thought it might be a reference back to her Aquaman role since she plays a fish chick and her dress looks like fish scales.

      I must say- as a person who is a weightlifter, Kaiser, I love the belt. That’s the best part of the outfit, including the whole Amber!

      Elle’s dress looks like a whole sensual springtime country bedspread look which makes me want to take a nap.

      • Carol says:

        I sort of like the dress too, the color especially. I don’t mind the width of the belt but wish it was in a different material or color. The look is kind of futuristic to me.

        Julianne’s caplet would have worked if the top part didn’t look like a car seat.

  2. Clare says:

    Re: Amber Heard – how does a woman that beautiful manage to look this ridiculous? I mean, is her stylist on Depp’s payroll or something?

    • Seraphina says:

      @clare, yes. There is no hope for the rest of us if beautiful women with so much at the disposal can’t get it right. They need way less “assistance” then a lot of us.

    • Felicia says:

      Bad hair, bad makeup, the belt is atrocious with that dress, her underwear is showing through the dress and also in person because the slit is exposing her panties.

  3. Singtress says:

    Don’t hurt me…cause I am not by any means saying she is fat.
    …but Amber looks Preggo to me.
    She has that pregnant roundness in her face.

    • Embee says:

      I see a softness to her as well. Also her face looks like she’s trying not to barf. Preggo or sick or meds? We may never know!

    • Kateeeee says:

      Pregnancy isnt a bad guess because while certainly not fat by any stretch, she does have bit more softness. But I haven’t really seen her since the Depp days, when she looked drawn (understandably). I first thought maybe she was on steroids? Her face looked rather swollen in close up. The makeup doesnt help offset whatever is going on.

    • t says:

      It could be, but I saw another photo of her last week and it looked like fillers that hadn’t settled yet (it looked a bit painful). The other thought I had was that it could have been swelling from some sort of dental surgery.

      Photo is here —>

    • jen says:

      her face does look different, i would guess either medication that causes puffiness, or post-work on her face.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Didn’t recognize her because of her face,she’s styled poorly,ugly dress,but definitely still very pretty,but again I see the facial roundness.

    • KatieBo says:

      It’s fillers. Her face definitely looks different.

  4. Miss M says:

    Call me crazy. But I do like Moore’s look.
    Fanning’s chest area looks weird. She has a small frame and looks like she had a minor breast implant. I dont need to see her sternum.

  5. Erinn says:

    Swap out that wrestling belt for something dainty and bejeweled and I think we’d have a winner with Amber’s look. She’s such a beautiful lady.

    Elle Fanning looks like she’s in a perfume ad – in a good way. It’s so over the top romantic, faerie mode – I love it.

    I have mixed feelings about Julianne’s look. Part of me really likes it, and part of me just doesn’t get it. I keep debating on whether I’m going to chop my hair down to the length she has, or leave it super long like it is now.

  6. Capepopsie says:

    JMs dress would look fine without that
    strange lace fringe, I think! 🤔

  7. Tessycat says:

    JM, my mom called. She wants her bed skirt back. Thanks.

  8. dlc says:

    I think Julianne Moore looks incredible! Her red carpet style often doesn’t work for me, but this dress and the green one she last wore are awesome!

    • broodytrudy says:

      I think this is the best JM has ever looked. She does not know how to dress and this is a solid win for me.

    • I love sunsets says:

      ITA! Love this look.

    • Mariposa says:

      I wonder if Julianne has a new stylist? Her two looks so far are the best I’ve seen her in on a red carpet!

  9. Kaye says:

    Amber Heard looks more like Sansa Stark in these pictures.

  10. Sarah says:

    Elle Fanning has been KILLING it with her fashion at Cannes this year, you can tell her confidence is growing and her style is evolving. Tom and Lorenzo give an excellent breakdown of her choices.

  11. Jemimaleopard says:

    Wait – they’re making another Les Miserables ??? Didn’t they only make one about 4/5 years ago ??

  12. Rae says:

    Julianne’s makeup and hair is on point though! Yes, the caplet is fugly but she still looks amazing.

  13. Mego says:

    Why? To all of these.

  14. LadyT says:

    I have never understood Elle’s unnaturally yellow hair. Notice I did not call it blonde. It’s dull, flat and a solid color. No depth or highlights. It clashes with her white light pink skin.
    Love her dress and styling though.

    • Lex says:

      Yes a cooler toned blonde would suit her complexion far better, with some additional highlights and lowlights.. maybe microfoils to get some lovely variation

  15. Gobo says:

    I hope Elle’s dress has pockets. It looks like it might…

  16. tempest prognosticator says:

    Elle does look like a beautiful fairie princess. Splendid. I think Julianne looks gorgeous as well. I like what she’s wearing. It’s a swing and a miss for Amber.

  17. Tuille says:

    Julianne Moore rarely nails clothing but she’s so gorgeous & well-styled that I forgive her for wearing some of the stuff someone picks out for her.
    Amber? The belt kills whatever goodness that dress had.
    Elle – fake coronet braids? Really?? Is she getting ready for a remake of the Sound of Music? Maybe she’s going to be Clara in Heidi?

  18. Desolee says:

    Elle looks so good, that dress really suits her. That’s a very flattering look on Julianne, love the styling. Amber’s dress might have looked ok with a different belt or sans belt. I really agree with Kaiser that belt is so wrong plus it makes the dress look bunched on top and pulled up the leg and I think it’s too big for her torso length. It’s nice to see natural coloured legs on pale women (amber).

  19. Sparker says:

    geez, people don’t know how to dress anymore yet they still have opinions. Hold my beer while I go set trends, BRB…

  20. Case says:

    Amber is a beautiful woman with an awful makeup artist. For months I’ve been noticing her crazy contour/highlight situation and it completely reshapes her face. I don’t think it’s altered by plastic surgery, just really weird makeup.

    Her dress would be pretty without the belt. I like the other two looks a lot.

  21. Missy says:

    Anyone else think the dress was a 2-piece crop in the first pic? I spent a good 30 seconds trying to figure out why her midriff was so much more tan than her legs lol!

  22. wnskjbjnd says:

    Amber’s face is so bloated here, does she have new cheek implants?

  23. Me says:

    Amber’s so pretty. The belt it’s divisive in a rather meh gown, but her face is perfect.
    She’s at Cannes with L’OREAL because they’re the sponsors of the festival and she’s their ambassador. So makeup and hairstyle are L’ORÉAL doing

  24. line says:

    Nothing to do with the post, but this year there is a terrible controversy concerning the palm of honor.Last year the festival, had decided to support the movement Me too, and this year they chose to honor Alain Delon, an actor openly homophobic and misogygnies.

  25. Veronica S. says:

    Honestly…I don’t hate it as much as I thought. The belt’s a bit too big, but at least it’s an attempt at making a basic sparkly dress more interesting? The sleeves are a nice bit of drama for Cannes.

    I like Julianne’s dress! The leather caplet is a nice touch on an otherwise sedate outfit. Mature without being too matronly.

  26. jen says:

    i’m here for elle, she’s so fun to watch!

  27. JanetFerber says:

    I’m not loving the brown belt in Amber Heard’s ensemble, but she is truly a goddess, perfection. Same goes for Julianne Moore, an underrated and great actress.

    • ta says:

      As underrated as one can be for an A-list, still headlining movies in ingenue loving Hollywood in her late 50s, five time Oscar nominated, won an Oscar less than five years ago actress. Definitely that kind of underrated.
