Julia Roberts wore a Louis Vuitton tuxedo-jumpsuit in Cannes: cute or ugh?

Here are more photos from the Cannes Film Festival, from Thursday’s red carpets. At first, I only saw Julia Roberts from the waist up, and I thought it was cool that she wore a suit. But then I saw the whole look… my God. This is Louis Vuitton and it’s my sad duty to inform everyone that LV is back to f–king up everything. This isn’t even a suit, it’s a jumpsuit!!! It’s all one piece, with built-in “tails.” It’s so unflattering. Julia has a nice figure too – it’s not difficult to find flattering clothes for a tall, lanky woman. You have to TRY to f–k it up. That being said, I have felt that Julia’s current stylist (whoever she’s been using in the past five years or so) kind of hates her.

Deepika Padukone in Louis Vuitton. The color is gorgeous on her. The dress is pretty, but it would have been so much more sophisticated without the peplum.

Rebecca Hall in Gucci. Hall is there as a member of the Cannes jury, btw. That’s why we’re getting so many photos of her. This was a good look, honestly. I don’t hate it. Julia should borrow Rebecca’s stylist.

Alessandra Ambrosio in Stephane Rolland. Hilariously bad, offensively cheap-looking.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a custom Gaurav Gupta. I mean… the idea of it is fine. Big, sculptural couture on a beautiful woman. The execution though… yikes. The wave/pattern of the fabric is kind of unflattering and I’m not sure pale pink/lilac is Aishwarya’s best color. Still, it was a moment.

    Is Julia wearing that famous Tiffany necklace ?

  2. Becks1 says:

    Julia’s outfit is SO CLOSE to being fabulous. I love the neckline, love the necklace, love her hair, she looks happy, like classic Julia…..but its the midsection of the jumpsuit that just doesn’t work IMO. This is so close to being amazing and its not. Blah.

    • Eurydice says:

      The midsection looks like “old man pants” – high above the waist with a super long zipper.

      • Twin Falls says:

        +1 it’s the midsection that doesn’t work. But it’s still classic menswear and a megawatt smile Julia.

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree about the midsection. If that had been a little better, I’d love it.
        Her hair looks fantastic.

      • Jan90067 says:

        The “sway” stand, with her midsection stuck out isn’t doing the look any favors, either. Perhaps if the “jacket” part was a few inches longer? Proportions seem “off” to me.

        I’ve just never felt the same about her after the “Aloe Vera” stunt. Just so put me off her.

    • HufflepuffLizLemon says:

      I feel like this is a common problem with jumpsuits and tall people. *sigh* I always think about having one made, but I still think it would be off in the midsection.

      • Becks1 says:

        I’m not that tall (I’m about 5-7, 5-8) but I have this issue with jumpsuits. They just hit me at a weird point and are not at all flattering, and it bums me out bc some are really cute.

    • Josephine says:

      But even if the midsection fit better, it seems so heavy for Cannes. I appreciate that she favors pants, but give her something lighter and more modern. This just struck me as very sad and sweaty.

  3. HeyKay says:

    Woah. None of these designs look good.
    How did the “wave” person get in a car with that? I assume it was assembled just before stepping on the red carpet.

    Julia Roberts, these days all I can see is Mean Girl.
    She has a pretty messy past in regards to her shameful treatment of DMs #1 wife.

    • Taehyung's Noona says:

      Same HeyKay. I stopped seeing her work after her public behavior regarding the wife of the man she wanted and later married.

      Cruel people win. Shameless people win. All the time.

    Deepika won the night. Also, Julia hasn’t changed her look in DECADES.

    • Danbury says:

      Deepika has been killing it this year at Cannes. I’m still stunned by the black and gold sari

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Agreed. I do think some type of gold necklace would have looked better with Deepika’s dress, but the dress itself looks great.

  5. girl_ninja says:

    I don’t like any of these looks but Julia was so close and then you see the waist down. Too bad.

  6. Concern Fae says:

    As someone who saw Mystic Pizza in the theater when it first came out, Julia has always been like this. Weird menswear inspired looks that are just a bit off is her jam.

  7. JRenee says:

    Not a fan of the style of Julia’s outfit at all. It’s not flattering for any shape

  8. Margaret says:

    I’d much rather Julia’s outfit was a suit and not a jumpsuit, but I still think she looks better than any of the other women in their weird dresses.

  9. Tee says:

    Rebecca Hall is killing it at Cannes, I love it for her. I’m 90% on board with Julia’s; that necklace is everything. One of the best thing about Cannes is it being the place for excess, lol. I do love Aishwarya Rai’s dress. The drama of it is absolutely perfect. She always shines at Cannes.

  10. shanaynay says:

    I think it looks blah! It doesn’t do anything for her

  11. Lena says:

    Julia and Rebecca both look gorgeous.

  12. FHMom says:

    These outfits are all hilariously bad.

  13. Thinking says:

    Julia Roberts is always well-groomed but I never notice her clothes too much.

    Not sure if that’s because her personality is so big.

    She’s not someone I really associate with fashion so I think it doesn’t matter too much if her clothes are always a little off.

    This suit looks better than what I’ve seen from her in the past. Even in a dress you notice her more than the outfit.

  14. MangoAngelesque says:

    I love tuxedo suits on women, but this is one on Julia Roberts, so even if it *did* magically fit properly and not look like a literal sad sack, I’d still say “ugh.”
