Cannes 2018 Red Carpet Rundown – Part One

Posted on May 18, 2018


Darlings, we’ve got a royal wedding to cover in less than 24 hours and you know what that means, don’t you?

Actually, you probably don’t, but if you were the type to be absolutely fascinated about how pop culture/style blogs manage themselves, then you would totally know that we have to DRAIN OUR CONTENT TANKS to make way for all the royal foofaraw about to land on our asses.

In other words, we’ve got so many leftover Cannes looks that we’re not only doing a separate leftovers post just to clear them out; we’re doing TWO of them. But enough explanations and verbal foreplay! Let’s get to the judging part!

 

 

Aishwarya Rai in Rami Kadi

As Cannes gowns go, it’s pretty simple, but the shape and drape, not to mention the sparkle, give a lovely effect.

 

 

Deepika Padukone in Ashi Studio

As Cannes gowns go, this is NOT a simple look, but since there’s a huge attention-seeking component to the festival, we can’t truly hate this. It’s not chic, but it got her a ton of press coverage, which means the mission was accomplished.

 

 

Isabelle Huppert

Very French-Chic, but we don’t love the sheer top.

 

 

 

Isabelle Huppert in Saint Laurent

Another look that’s great except for one detail. In this case, it’s a big one: can’t sign onto that skirt. Her makeup looks amazing, though.

 

 

Kendal Jenner

Upholding the family traditions.

 

 

 

La Toya Jackson

All things considered – like the fact that she’s LaToya Jackson – this is surprisingly … low-key … not … awful.

 

 

 

Marion Cotillard in Valentino Couture

We like the dramatic shape and don’t mind the idea of that neckline, but we think it could have been edited just a bit. It’s focus-pulling as it is. It didn’t need to be complicated to boot.

 

 

Marion Cotillard in Chanel

Almost unsettlingly conventional and pretty.

 

 

 

Michael Shannon

This is awful from a style perspective, but the picture is hilarious and we can’t seriously argue that he should try and be someone or something that he’s not. He hates the poledance and he’s not into fashion. We get it. And while we think he could meet us halfway by dressing in a casually professional style for these events, we have to admit, his deliberately goofy outfits are kind of winning in their own way.

 

 

Michelle Rodriguez in Romona Keveza

Serving Drama Butter.

 

 

Naomi Campbell in Poiret

Gonna have to “Newp” on outta this one. Every aspect of this look is overdone in some way.

 

 

Paul Bettany

Can’t really argue with that. We’ve seen a lot of awful tan summer suits this week, but it’s probably not surprising that his is the best.

 

 

 

Salma Hayek in Gucci

Repurposed First Holy Communion dress. Not a compliment.

 

 

 

Woody Harrelson

That’s as good as it gets with this one.
