Jane Fonda at Cannes (x2)

Posted on May 22, 2012

Darlings, let’s check in with Miss Lady again to see how she’s rocking the Cannes red carpet septuagenarian-style.

If there’s one thing Jane Fonda has always known how to do – going back almost 50 years – it’s how to make a splash. Personally, we don’t actually love this dress all that much, but we can admit it’s a head-turner. The silhouette graphic is weirdly off, as if it’s depicting a much younger woman cocking her hip, which is kind of an odd thing to want on the front of your dress. We never did understand that whole trompe l’oeil thing with fake silhouettes on clothing. You see it a lot on women’s bathing suits where it makes a bit more sense as a way to fool the eye, but on a gown it just looks flatout odd.

Also, her earrings look like cold medicine.

Of all the dresses she’s worn this week, this may be our favorite. The fit seems kind of odd for her. And by that we mean it’s not her usual body-hugging gown. This has a slight looser fit to it. Lady Jane obviously needed a break from the no-doubt formidable foundation garments she’s been strapped into all week and we don’t blame her a bit. The cantilevered boobs, however, are a serious problem.
