Style File: Playing Catchup at Cannes

Posted on May 21, 2019

Time to play catch up with those fine attention-seeking folks of the Cannes Film Festival. We’ve been giving the spotlight to several of the attendees separately, so be sure to click on the Cannes tag for all our judgments conveniently aggregated on one page for you. It’s because we’re such thoughtful bitches.




Aishwarya Rai in Ashi Studio Couture

It’s big, it’s fluffy, it’s got a huge train. All that and a face beat to the gods. Girlfriend keeps doing Cannes the way Cannes needs to be done.




Dita Von Teese

As we said last week, we really can’t argue against her mid-Century burlesque drag when she does it so well. We might have an issue with how puckery the satin is, but the look overall is just fabulous.



Isabelle Huppert in Armani Privé

She looks like she’s floating on a column of sparkly bubbles and while that’s not an aesthetic we could have predicted she’d go for, the results are fun and glamorous without being fussy. And the fit is superb.



Marion Cotillard in Chanel Couture

We can get behind the idea of a crop top with a ballgown-sized skirt for something like Cannes, but that top is really sad-looking.



Miles Teller

Because he deserves some recognition for making this work.



Monica Bellucci

That may just be the best jumpsuit we’ve seen all year. What a great, low-key look for her.



Penélope Cruz in Chanel

Feels kind of heavy and tweedy for beachside work. It’s a nice-looking dress but it would work better for the setting if there wasn’t quite so much skirt to it.



Shailene Woodley in Michael Kors Collection

She’s out there taking all kinds of risks lately and while we appreciate her new commitment to attention-seeking promo fashion, we’re afraid placing black marabou feathers right at someone’s crotch comes off like a cruel joke. Shailene, Michael… did NO ONE see the problem here?
