      I can’t believe i’m saying this, but I like it. Hair still a little frzzy and she needs earrings, but not bad.

      • Louise Bryan

        I believe it, because I agree. Simply chic!

        I was originally going to make a crack about STAR TREK’s original Costume Designer, William Ware Theiss, and his machinations to cover up navels while showing abdominal skin every chance he got – but I can’t hate. This ensemble looks great on her – elegant, sexy and (for something with That Much Fabric) very cool and comfortable.

        A far more successful Western homage to the sari than that dress Jane Fonda was wearing – which only worked because of her sheer Jane Fonda-ness!

    • lexilexi

      The weather in Cannes was dreadful… but she looks FABULOUS!!

    • Maluca

      Oh dear, she truly does looks stunning!

    • nannypoo

      That is a great color for her. She looks beautiful.

    • Rand Ortega

      Wow. She looks absolutely stunning.

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      Pretty great except for the slight underboob. I like her hair, actually.

    • Knightley

      The underboob/peekaboob thing is driving me insane. Ruins what would otherwise be a great dress and a great job for her.

      • scrappy1

        “Peekaboob” is now lodged permanently in my vocabulary. Thank you for that. :)

      • Verascity

        Agreed. It’s so close to perfect, but that ruins it for me.

    • carpediva

      What a gorgeous dress on a gorgeous woman.

    • Cassidy Olsen

      That color is gorgeous on her. The dress is a little unflattering on her chest, but the make up/cool snake bracelet make up for it.

    • Virginia McMurdo

      She is a beauty.

    • frannyprof


    • Chuck Barthelme

      Her hair could have been done better. But otherwise, wow.

    • IAmJ

      Her bone structure is stunning.

    • cowper

      Color is fabulous. But that said, the draping makes it look like she has her boob in a sling. Let us hope such an injury never actually happens to her (or anyone else wearing these boob-sling dresses)!

    • Lori

      This would be a total win for me if it wasn’t for the keyhole bodice. I almost always hate those and I don’t think this one is doing her any favors. The color is great though and she looks beautiful.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      She is absolutely beautiful, here. Love everything!

    • GillianHolroyd

      Her makeup is SOOO much better than, say, a year ago.

      Something about the placement/shape of the keyhole is throwing off the proportions; likewise the solid triangle of fabric above her boob is bugging me. Maybe that should be cut out as well?

      Despite some quibbles with the dress, she looks utterly fantastic.

      • marlie

        YES. Maybe she has a different person doing her makeup these days? So much softer than it was a year or two ago.

        • CakesOnAPlane

          And she’s got eyebrows! Finally!

    • In_Stitches

      That’s some upgrades Grecian goddess fabulousness. The color is divine on her and the bodice really works. Might be her best look to date in my opinion.

    • random_poster

      What a great look on her. The color is gorgeous, and the softness of her hair is totally flattering.

    • gabbilevy

      Ok, the serpent jewelry is definitely a thing on the RC right now.

    • demidaemon

      I don’t get the cutout. Otherwise, she looks pretty.

    • E. D.

      Almost a WERQ – don’t like the lip color.

    • marlie

      This color is stunning. If it weren’t for the cutout in the front, this might just be perfect.

    • marshmallowjane

      Nice everything. What a stunning woman. Where was Jessica Chastain when People Magazine was look for a woman who was both beautiful and relevant? Her tiny tummy poking out makes me like her even more.

    • j_anson

      I love this. Could be a WERQ, in my opinion. Maybe not the hair. I get the impression she has super-fine hair that’s hard to keep un-frizzy.

      • marlie

        It doesn’t help that the weather in Cannes has been gross and rainy the last few days. Not a friend to ANY woman’s hair!

    • Buffy

      I like this! But the hair needs to go

    • formerlyAnon

      Good dress. As stated already her hair is awful, but that’s probably mostly the weather, and she looks great in that dress & color.

    • Sadie-Ann

      Get rid of the cutout and I’ll be completely for it. Those things just make weird torso shapes.

    • berkeleygirl


    • KayEmWhy

      Toga, toga, toga! Not crazy about it.

    • Anniebet

      Pretty damn super great if you ask me. The whole thing. Hair, dress, makeup. Oh, except for yet again another fricking piece of snake jewelry. Did the the oh-so expensive jewelry designers all cross breed with herpetologists?

    • Candice Booth

      Love love love red heads in red! I also dig her hair again.

    • H2olovngrl

      So beautiful! Love the color! Love her hair and make up. The snake jewelry, maybe not so much…

    • TheAmericaness

      My main issues is that the cutout makes it look like her boobs are in bandages. I can’t not see that. Other than that it’s a wonderful color on her.

    • Rebecca Clifford

      Make-up is fantastic. For the first time she doesn’t look overdone. On that note, the hair could use some combing. I’m a bit over the bed-head thing. The dress – wow. Fits her beautifully. I am on the fence about the cut-out, but she looks great- And yes, earrings would be a big help.

    • decormaven

      Wish she had chosen some type of jeweled hair adornment. That really would have been a nice touch. Stunning color on her.

    • fairi5fair

      She’s lovely. Rather daring for a red head to wear red.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Very nice.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      What a pretty dress. I love the color. And I know it’s wrong, but I wish she had red lipstick on instead.

    • TFLS

      That’s a great color for her. Really makes her skin and eyes pop. It’s the blue undertone to the red, I think. I prefer blue reds to orange reds myself.

    • Aaminah Khan

      I actually like the hair. She looks sexy and sultry, which is not something I’m used to seeing from her.

    • crash1212

      I’m usually not a big fan of the cut-out dress, but this one is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful color for her and I love the hair and her make-up. I’m wondering why this isn’t a WERQ. It is to me.

    • sekushinonyanko

      I like this, and factoring in the rain at Cannes I’d give her a WERQ, very minor frizz in the hair and all. I still think her hair looks nice and I think in this situation flyaways count as an act of God.

    • Jeff Warhurst

      That triangular cutout sucks, but the overall look is gorgeous.

    • Richi Robilotto

      I probably shouldn’t even like this, but I actually love this dress a lot. Her hair seems a tiny bit crusty, though.

    • pugluv

      Love the color on her and I would totally love the dress without the cutout!! That diamond serpent bracelet is to die for!!!!!

    • Crystal

      She looks pretty, but wtf is going on with that bodice?

    • Vera

      Pretty. Could have used some earrings, but I love the color, and she is wearing a not so easy dress well.

    • MannahattaMamma

      nailed it

    • Tatiana Luján

      The boob window throws off the proportions.
      Makeup is great, her hair looks good and the color of the dress is gorgeous on her.

    • StrandedFashionista

      With the toga styling and the Bulgari snake bracelet, she’s rocking some magical ginger Cleopatra realness.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I really like this a lot! It’s different, and it works for her. Can’t quibble with that.

    • Ashley Ellen Wilson

      She looks GORGEOUS. I love her hair like that. A cascading mane. Fantastic.

    • Pterodactyl111

      GORGEOUS. I love it.

    • librarygrrl64

      I would have liked some earrings with this, but otherwise she looks lovely. Great color for her.
