Diane Kruger wore a tulle Armani in Cannes: lovely or just kind of blah?

74th Festival de Cannes - Red Carpet

Here are some photos from Day/Night #2 of Cannes. Not as glittery as the opening night, but there was some fun fashion to discuss. Diane Kruger was there to attend the premiere of Tout S’est Bien Passe. She wore this Armani gown, which surprised me for a few different reasons. Diane is big on Chanel, for one. While she was never exclusively contracted to wear Chanel on every red carpet, she wore Chanel often. When Karl Lagerfeld was alive. I wonder if she’s being phased out of Chanel or she’s phasing them out? Or maybe she just liked this Armani gown, although I do not see why. This gown is giving her Sad Boob Syndrome.

Andie MacDowell wore an absolutely awful Versace gown to the same premiere! This is a new piece, but it looks like something that she found in the back of her closet. I do love that she’s rocking grey hair though – from the neck up, she looks good (she needs a different lipstick, so there is that as well).

Candice Swanepoel in custom Etro. This really does look customized for her and it’s really good on her. I would look like a lumpy tube in this, but she looks great. A tad bridal, maybe? But that’s my only minor criticism.

    It’s like she lost her style mojo when she split with Joshua Jackson …

  2. Boogaloo Shrimp says:

    I think Diane’s dress is lovely, and she looks good in it.

  3. Va Va Kaboom says:

    If that counts as “Sad Boob Syndrome” then me and mine are f*cked.

    • Darla says:

      Right? you can see her nips and they’re pointing up.

    • Eurydice says:

      The “saggy” comes from the dress – the top isn’t constructed in a flattering way.

    • Kate says:

      yeah i don’t think a failure to push up boobs in an unnatural way means they are necessarily sagging or sad. they are just hanging out where they live.

  4. Harla says:

    Andie’s dress would have been perfect in another color, any color other than this blah beige. The construction of it is stunning though.

  5. Darla says:

    No way, I really like the Armani and absolutely loathe that Balenciaga, ugh. And if you look closely you can se Kruger’s nipples, which are pointing UP. If those are sad boobs sign me up.

  6. Becks1 says:

    I like the skirt of Diane’s dress – it has an old school hollywood glam vibe to me. The top though is not good.

    I think the color of Andie’s dress is the problem. It completely washes her out .I don’t think it would be so bad in a different color.

    • Turtledove says:

      A jewel tone would be gorgeous..ruby, sapphire, emerald.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Agree, Diane’s dress is ill fitting on the top or should have been better balanced. As she has so much on the skirt that the top portion is competing with her top. But Andie’s makeup looks too heavy handed as well. Plus, she should have gone with a jewelry tone as @ Chaine has suggested.
      As for Isabelle Hubert, everyone looked blah compared to her. She was rocking her look and she knew it!! She gives off this incredible strong and confident woman in her look. But Candice does look lovely, though it’s not bridal to me.

    • lucy2 says:

      Agree on both. I LOVE the skirt of Diane’s, but that top is terrible. Really terrible.

      Andie’s dress is quite pretty, and I like the color in general, but she would look better in jewel tones. Especially since she’s wearing strong makeup.

  7. Chaine says:

    Very blah, it’s a miss. Andie’s makeup is ghastly and makes her look clownish. Fire whomever did that to her.

  8. Merricat says:

    I dislike tulle except in very specific instances. I don’t like this gown.

  9. Lena says:

    I have no idea who this Candice person is ( a model I presume) but you can see her rib cage from sucking it in which would be impossible to keep up all night long. What people do for fashion I don’t understand.

    • Thirtynine says:

      Yes! She actually looks from the front like she has four weirdly placed breasts because the ribs stick out just as much. That can’t have been the look she was going for. Andie McDowell missed everwhere- the dress needs colour, but I think a softer more flowing dress would also look good, but the makeup is terrible! Like a child put it on. The eyes and brows in particular. I dont think any of the looks are fabulous or memorable, but Diane’s is the best.

  10. SpankyB says:

    While I think Andie’s hair is gorgeous, I don’t like it on her. It’s too ashy and creates a harsh look. It’s the same problem I have and I’m really getting tired of coloring my hair. Love her dress, though.

  11. L4frimaire says:

    Isabelle Hubert looks amazing! Love that dress. Very dominatrix. The other girls really can all go home. Kruger’s skirt is way too heavy and big for that flimsy halter, which has no bust support at all. I actually like Andie McDowells dress. Love the draped neckline and the color. Don’t like her makeup. Too much rouge and the red lipstick is too harsh, and a softer neutral palette would have flattered her more. However love her hair.

  12. NCWoman says:

    Whoever did Andie’s makeup should be sued. When you have gray hair, you can actually look younger than you did if you’re brunette because most brunette dye colors are too harsh and aging for pale skin. But you have to change the way you do makeup, not try to paste on your 25-year-old former face.

    Isabelle Huppert is in another league. She’s one of the greatest actors alive and a complete queen badass.

    I freaking <3 Isabelle Huppert
