Cannes 2017 Style File: Gwendoline Christie Makes an Impression

Posted on May 25, 2017

Miss Gwendoline and us? We don’t always see eyes-to-eye on her style choices. Her choices tend to have suitability issues more often than not. In other words, she’s a lady who loves to wear the kinds of things that suit her least. But she does have one major point in her favor; one aspect of her style that tends to soften the wrong parts: she goes big and bold. And for a woman of height, a commitment to turning heads at all times can be something of a powerful personal statement. In other words, we admire her for making choices that speak of confidence, but we never seem to love the particular ways she tends to express that. Not that she cares – or even should care.

But let the judging commence anyway.


Gwendoline Christie attends the screening of “The Beguiled” during the Cannes Film Festival 2017 at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

Exhibit A. One big NEWP from top to bottom. The color is way too close to her own skin tone. The shape is stiff and unflattering. The high collar looks uncomfortable and the uneven hem is eyelid-twitch-inducing. The shoes are hate crimes; one on each foot.

Love the idea of her in a halter, but it should be attached to a slinky black column gown with a slit.

Actually, this one we’re pretty close to loving. The style is perfect for her. Love the shoes and pants. LOVE that she wore a dress as a blouse. Our only issue is that the print is kind of ugly. Also, she might’ve wanted to bring up the hem a little. Still, it looks like she’s better at slightly more casual styles. Or at least she was in this instance.
