It’s quite clear from these shots that Miss Kiki had a red carpet game plan going into Cannes this year. Said game plan being “I shall CRUSH my enemies under the tricky heel of my shoe.” Apparently.

Okay, before we get to anything else, let us stipulate that those shoes, while interesting in a theoretical sense, are nonetheless total girl-no’s. That is to say, they are the type of shoe that causes one to exclaim “GIRL, NO!” in concern for the well-being of her feet. Of slightly lesser importance: they’re not even all that pretty. We can see how a fashionista might be interested in them at first glance, but one try-on should’ve sealed the “NOPE” deal.
Moving on to the rest of her look… it’s all gangbusters. We wouldn’t think a pale blonde could work a yellow-and-gold ensemble, but she looks fresh and … we don’t know… regal somehow. If only Cathy Cambridge would sport a dress as chic as this now and then. The fit is flawless and the gold belt really makes the look.
But Miss K was not going to rest on her laurels after that sweetly chic opening. She hauled out the big guns for the premiere:

Said big guns being BIG HONKING GLITTER FLOWERS.
Note that she’s once again sporting a pastel but making it seem fresher than your average blonde-in-a-pastel look. Of course the entire look rests on those beaded flowers, which are spectacular, but the blush pink of the gown looks lovely on her and the shape is elegant and chic. The only quibble we have is with that belt detail, but all of the Gucci trompe l’oeil looks this season have been hit or miss. This is far from the worst of the lot, although we think the dress would be better served with something a little more conventional around the waist.
We’re quibbling, though. She looks chic as hell in both looks.
