Cannes In or Out: Jessica Chastain in McQueen

Posted on May 17, 2012

We’ve been bitching a lot lately (as is our nature) about those dusty, mauve-y pinks that have been showing up on the red carpets, but from where we’re sitting, this is exactly the kind of pink that works best when you want a toned-down pink:

Jessica Chastain attends opening ceremony and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ premiere at Cannes in an Alexander McQueen dress paired with Louis Vuitton diamond earrings and cuff bracelet from the “Les Ardentes” collection.

So toned-down it’s practically white in photographs, but we think you can get the gist of it. It’s very pale pink and it suits very pale Jessica very well. The simplicity of this gown also suits her. Too often, she’s out in things far too complicated for her. She needs clean lines and minimal detailing. Love the jewelry, but we think it was a mistake to go beltless. It instantly makes this look bridal. We go back and forth on that neckline and whether or not it works for her, but overall, we think this may be one of the prettiest looks she’s ever sported.

Minions are encouraged to vigorously disagree.

IN! Clean and chic!


OUT! Cannes Barbie!



The kittens were mostly in agreement that Kristen Stewart’s very colorful dress was an IN but that her sour face and shitty makeup were OUT.
