Canned Cannes Red Carpet Showdown: Lupita vs. Bingbing vs. Aishwarya vs. Charlize

Posted on May 15, 2020

Darlings, if we can’t have a Cannes in this Cannes-less world, can we have a Canned Cannes instead? Say that out loud three times before proceeding. Our point: In these uncertain times, when red carpets seem more like a fantasy world than ever, in a springtime without a Met Gala or a Cannes Film Festival to brighten our days, doesn’t it behoove professional day-brighteners like ourselves to do their best to serve you something from a Cannes? The answer is yes, of course. To that end, we’ve made a selection of some of our fave looks from the past several years of Cannes-ery and we’re giving you a reason to stop thinking about the world for the next few minutes by asking you to pick the best of the lot. Ladies of style? Please step forward with your Cannes’d goods.

Romance, sweep, and color with a fairy tale vibe.




Fan Bingbing in Alexis Mabille Couture, 2018

Dramatic, head-turning classic with a twist.




Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Michael Cinco Couture, 2017

Pure, jaw-dropping high drag with a fantasy princess feel to it.
