Naomie Harris Goes Full Unicorn at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival Opening Gala

Posted on May 18, 2017

Naomie Harris attends the “Ismael’s Ghosts” (“Les Fantômes d’Ismaël”) screening and Opening Gala during the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.


Celebrity Gownathon 2017 continues, as the competitor from Great Britain enters the playing field, with a defiant cry of “SHERBET, BITCHES!”


She is giving us sugary cereal, ’80s Saturday morning cartoon, birthday party, unicorn princess realness. Is it perhaps a bit much? Perhaps not as close to the “elegant” and “sophisticated” marks as one would hope? Perhaps and perhaps. But it’s fun, colorful, different and attention-seeking in a “Just stand there and expect it” kind of way.

We’re not keen about the way the skirt attaches and we think a dress like this needs a strong styling game plan, which doesn’t appear to be in evidence. An up do of some sort, or even a pony tail or braid would’ve been our rec. The jewelry’s lovely, but like so much of what we’re seeing at Cannes this year, not quite right. Here’s where you bring in chandelier diamond earrings or even a tiara, if you can snag one. If you’re going to show up looking like Princess Rainbow Brite, you might as well really go for it, right?
