Day 3 of the Cannes Film Festival featured back-to-back premieres of After Yang and Stillwater. After Yang stars Colin Farrell (who wasn’t in Cannes), Jodie Turner-Smith and Justin H. Min. Jodie absolutely, 100% stole the show, from the photocall to the premiere. My two seconds of research told me that this is her first time in Cannes, or at least her first time promoting a movie at the festival. She understood the assignment and then some. For the red carpet premiere, Jodie wore this epic Gucci, with a long, dramatic train. Dramatic trains are a big thing in Cannes, because if you’re a big enough name, they clear the red carpet for you to pose alone with your long-ass dress. Then you’re photographed walking up the steps with the train. Jodie did it all and she looked amazing. The only very minor quibble is that I think, on the whole, the necklace was probably one piece too many.
Here’s Jodie’s Gucci look at the photocall earlier in the day. This is perfection on her. One of my favorite looks on Jodie of all time.
Matt Damon attended the Stillwater premiere without his wife. I don’t even think Luciana is there, in Cannes? In the old days, Matt would have brought Lucy and the kids and they would have done the carpet and then rented a yacht for a week to have some fun. Instead, we get Matt posing with his French costar Camille Cottin, who looks like a young Marlee Matlin. She was laughing and smiling up at him in a lot of photos. That’s all I’ll say. I don’t know the woman!
Bonus Chiara Ferragni, for no other reason than I thought she was Chiara Mastroianni and I only realized my mistake after I downloaded the damn photo. She wore a custom Giambattista Valli which also had a long train.
