Cannes 2017: Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman, and Elle Fanning, Pretty Maids All in a Row at “The Beguiled” Premiere

Posted on May 25, 2017

Ladies? We hope when this night was over, each of you put your feet up, cracked open a tall boy, and toasted each other for a job well done.

Because all y’all crushed it.



Kirsten Dunst in Schiaparelli Couture

Lovely. It’s a very classic style  – ’60s Liz Taylor realness, basically – and if it’s not done well or paired with the right wearer, it can look awfully stale. Miss Kiki’s keeping it fresh. The color looks amazing on her.

It’s strange how the bust tends to look snug from straight on, but blouson from the side.



Nicole Kidman in Michael Kors Collection

Unlike her two co-stars, who went a more romantic route, Miss Nicole opted for full-on Movie Star, which is her right. We don’t always love her in sparkle, because we tend to think it washes her out, but this dress tends to work because of the range of silvers, which give it some depth and texture, and the fringe, which gives it movement. She committed to the silver all the way through the styling, which helps complete the screen goddess effect. She’s really been on fire lately and it’s fun to see.



Elle Fanning in Rodarte

Two amazing things are happening here. First, this is a RODARTE. And it’s so pretty and conventional! It doesn’t make her look like a crazy person AT ALL. How is this trickery possible? Second, she’s in a pastel, looking pretty great, right after we said she should never wear them. Hmph. Fine, but we maintain this lavender shade is just rich enough to provide some contrast against her skin. A shade lighter and the effect would be lost, we think. Still, she look really pretty. Still don’t think she’s quite getting there in the hair situation, though.


Take a bow and grab a beer, gals.
