2017 Cannes Film Festival Opening Gala Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on May 18, 2017

Darlings, let’s wrap up our exhaustive coverage of last night’s gownathon by bringing in some of the models and the up-and-comer ingenues, along with some seasoned pros. They’re all gown’d to the gills and ready to be judged.



Bella Hadid in Alexandre Vauthier Couture

Girl, we guess so. Looks pretty basic to us.



Emily Ratajkowski in Twinset

Although not as basic as this.

We get that models are all “I’m so model that I can work a slightly fancy nightgown and look amazing in it.” Which is partly true in the sense that they both can make it look a hell of a lot more photogenic than most others could, but even so. Even with a big ass necklace, both of these are too generic for us.



Eva Herzigova in Roberto Cavalli Couture

Coming off more tacky than stylish. The pattern’s too busy, the gold’s too brassy, and the shoes are pretty damn stripper.



Lily-Rose Depp in Chanel

Can’t go wrong with a literal goddess gown at Cannes.



Robin Wright in Saint Laurent

Honey, no. We’ll grant that you’re really good at working the ’80s Power Bitch style, but this is way too Working Girl literal.



Susan Sarandon in Alberta Ferretti

She really gets on our nerves some times, but there’s no denying she hasn’t forgotten how to be an old school movie star. And to have some fun with it. She looks spectacular. Love that subtle teal. The velvet must be awfully hot, though.



Uma Thurman in Atelier Versace

This is surprisingly gorgeous. We hate to be so backhanded about it, but she hasn’t exactly had the most consistently chic red carpet record. And it takes a lot to wrangle such a tasteful look out of Donatella these days. Plus, she’s the first blonde white lady who’s managed to make that dreaded Millenial pink really work for her. The hair looks great too.
