Cannes Watch: Everyone’s Got a Random

Posted on May 19, 2011

Darlings, let’s slap up a bunch of random pictures from the Cannes Film Festival and form opinions, shall we?

Kirsten Dunst attends the “Melancholia” Premiere during the 64th Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in Rodarte.

At first glance we were all, “Wow, that’s kind of an interesting dress,” but stepping back, we realize it’s more like three interesting dresses. Rodarte is all about odd juxtapositions in their designs, so this is par for the course with them. We like it, but we think we’d like it more without the dust ruffle.

Naomi Campbell attends “The Beaver” premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 64th Cannes Film Festival in Azzedine Alaia.

It’s not our favorite dress – in fact, we’re not even sure we like it – but leave it to Naomi to sell the shit out of it. We don’t think any woman but a supermodel could make ruffles running horizontally across the hips look good. We are disappointed that she appears to be wearing platform shoes. Ladies, no platforms with gowns. It is written.

Jodie Foster attends the “Melancholia” premiere during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals in Balenciaga.

A little too shiney and nightgown-y.

Bar Refaeli attends “The Beaver” Premiere during the 64th Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in Roberto Cavalli.

Work that butt dress, girl!

That’s a lot of dress, but she looks pretty fierce.

Milla Jovovich attends the “La Conquete” Premiere during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in Prada.

We weren’t entirely sure about this one, but the more we look at it, the more chic it becomes to us. There’s a certain soigne quality to it, even if it is a tough dress to wear. Her makeup’s a little harsh, but we love the hair. It’s got a 1920s kind of feel to it, which goes perfectly with the straight lines of the dress.

     They’re all pretty bad. What is going on with the front of Bar’s dress, it looks like a shell. Mila’s makeup reminds me of the Joker.

      Good call, Mirakel.

      Personally, I hate that dress she’s wearing.  It’s like a formal flapper dress, and while flapper dresses work for certain body types, a flapper dress does not belong mixed with a formal gown.

    For me, Milla is one of those “can wear whatever she wants / can do no wrong” celebs.  Yes, her makeup is harsh and this dress is not particularly flattering but I love the colors and I love the side view and I love that she does interesting things more often than not.  She looks great in a 20′s silhouette.

    Jodie Foster should have worn the top part with a pair of great trousers.
    I like the 1920′s vibe from Milla Jovovich’s dress, but the lipstick is too harsh.

    Kirsten, Milla, and Bar’s butt look great! The rest are just ok…nothing egregious, but nothing too, too fabulous. 

    I’m so glad Kirsten Dunst is back on the scene; I really like her. She’s got this quirky, sexy, goofy, vibrant, vulnerable thing going on, which I realize is kind of par for the course among many indie actresses…but she does it in a way that is way less annoying to me.

      I love Kirsten as well.  I rewatch “Marie Antionette” regularly, she was so good in that.  And it qualifies as costume porn.

    Jodie Foster looks lovely all glammed up. However, from the waist down the dress seems to be doing wonky things to her body, or the dress fits poorly in that area.

    That Rodarte dress might have been better in a different color, that green is never a fav of mine.  Disagree about Jodie Foster, she is the only woman I have seen of late that wore satin and looked smooth and chic, not a puckered, pulling mess.  I don’t know who Bar Refaeli is but clearly she wants us to know she’ll do anal.  On the first date.  HATE the color of Naomi’s dress.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE  that Prada on Milla.  A risky dress that fits well, makes a statement and is memorable in a good way.

    Naomi Campbell may be a bit of a lunatic but DAMN she is a beautiful woman.  She can wear the shit out of pretty much anything.  And her Russian bazilionaire boyfriend is all kinds of sexy.

    I never thought I would actually use the word “vulgar” to describe a dress, but that blue thing Bar Refaeli is wearing is so truly vulgar, I feel like I should avert my eyes. Yuck. 

    I love Milla in that dress. She has the perfect stick figure to rock that look. So very 20s and chic. Yeah, the makeup needs to go, but other than that, flawless. I love that she doesn’t give away the farm. (cough cough, bar cough cough)

    Kirsten: yes, lose the dust ruffle and I feel like the skirt should be a little bit more fitted. That green is a great color for her.
    Bar Rafaeli: I think that’s a pretty ugly dress and it’s doing weird things to her body. Her boobs are smooshed and middle looks a little wonky. Her ass does look great, though, so I guess she was willing to sacrifice everything else for that ass shot.
    Milla: This is another dress that only a model can pull off successfully.

     Hate the Bar Rafaeli dress. The lines on the front go right up to her lady parts.  But yeah, you’re right she’s working her butt. How much farther could she stick it out? I like the top of Kirsten’s but hate the bottom. I think it’s sad that I’m saying that Milla’s is the best. It’s making an interesting statement.

    Ooh, I love that Prada!  And MJ is styled perfectly for it.  No, it’s not for “real” women but who the hell cares?!?!?  This is Cannes, baby.

     The fit on Jodie’s dress! Augh! And no one, no matter how gorgeously dressed, should be attending a movie starring Mel “Sugar Tits” Gibson. That said, I genuinely thought Milla Jovovich was Eddie Izzard.

  • http://profiles.google.com/mochizukisan kyasarin mochizuki

    Dear lord, those are some fugly dresses. The Prada’s interesting, but, the rest are kinda offensive when I consider how much it’d cost for a non-star to wear one of those things. It’s like the designers actively hate women.

    Oh, Bar-

    Fierce or not, when your jutting hip bone makes you look pregnant, your dress maybe a little too tight.

  • Mariah J

    Kirsten: chop the whole bottom off and it rocks

    Naomi: Meh, boring

    Jodie: boring

    Bar: totally fierce

    Mila: Honey, no.

     Milla looks like a disco flapper. 

    That is not a complement.

  • margaret meyers

    I think Jodie looks great.  She’s wearing a Haute Glam dress that is still her.  Think how often we see people here working “outside their wheelhouse” and they don’t look half as good as she does here.  Her simple hair and makeup suit her and her skin looks fab with that deep blue.

    And she must have walked to the premiere because I do not see any creases in her lap from sitting in a limo.

    Jovovich & Prada for the win. Hands down! She’s also wearing the only gown that doesn’t look a lot worse from the back than the front, possibly excepting Ms. Refaeli, because, really, who’s thinking about the gown in that back view?

  • Anonymous

     Jovovich’s Prada is a strange collection of colors, but she looks wonderful. The Rodarte looks rather like something black and filmy I found on trash day on the Upper West Side a long time ago. Foster’s dress is probably the best silk charmeuse money can buy, but in photos it looks like polyester from David’s. They all look elegant and radiate star power, but the clothes aren’t very exciting.

    Love Mila’s dress.  Kristen’s is ugly. 

  • Anonymous

    I like Campbell’s dress, especially the scalloped neckline, and the color is beautiful with her skin.  Agree about Milla’s flapper-channeling dress, and that the lipstick is too TOO with it, but she sure wins the “most interesting look” award.  Points for being daring.  Ms. “Kiss My Ass” Rafaeli looks like a high-priced executive call girl: clean & bright, but a hooker just the same.  Foster’s dress is booooo-ring.

    That is Bar’s “To hell with you, Leonardo!” dress.  The dress is weird, but she is sexy as hell.

     I’m surprised at the level of distaste for Naomi’s dress. I think it’s pretty damn fabulous and she looks great in it. 

    the Cavalli dress Bar is wearing is just plain ugly. 

  • Anonymous

    I wonder if Bar was comfortable in that, not too sure she was. I like where Milla was going but she’s just short of the right effect. Jodie’s is a bit cheap looking and kinda like something a design student would make. Nothing cheaper than dark blue satin. Naomi is sinking in ruffles. Kirsten’s dress has lots of interesting elements but didn’t quite mesh together well, though I love the effort she makes nowadays.
