You should know by now, that I love checking out red carpet photos, drooling over all the gowns that I will never have the fortune to wear myself...its like the best kind of torture. A few of you who read the words as well as looking at the pretty pictures will know I'm also a total bitch and love to mock the stars that got it wrong...I have an excuse for my fashion faux pas, I don't have a stylist, make-up artist and mustache waxer on speed dial. When you have all of these things a single eyelash should not be out of place, so walking down the red carpet in dress that looks like you've had a fight in a cotton field (Cheryl I'm looking at you) is unacceptable.
Anyway, now that I have the rant out the the way, most of you (except the rock dwellers) will know that the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival is in full swing - a festival where the more Art-house (fancy pant speak for pretentious) of movies hit the spotlight and celebrities descend on the red carpet en masse in voluminous tulle gowns, which they then have cram into a narrow cinema chair for two hours to watch some pompous, possibly subtitled and quite likely black and white bore-fest. (NOTE: To all the producers and directors at Cannes I'm sure some of your movies are good, I'm just unlikely to ever watch and find out).
So moving on, here are my top red carpet gowns of Cannes, and for those who like my bitchy side, there will be a few of the gowns that didn't quite hit the mark.
Fan Bing Bing in Christopher Bu
Jane Fonda in Atelier Versace
Kelly Brook in The Blonds
Fan Bing Bing in Elie Saab Couture
Diane Kruger in Giambattista Valli Couture
Frida Pinto in Michael Angel
Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann
Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière
So now we get down the the stars, who at least in my opinion, had stylists who decided to have a little giggle - you really should treat those stylists nice, as it looks like a few of them were severely pissed off with their celeb clients.
Irina Shayk in Roberto Cavalli
Cheryl Cole in Stephane Rolland
Michelle Rodriguez in Dolce & Gabbana
What dresses have you guys been loving on the red carpet of Cannes, and what dresses have you been hating? I would love to hear your thoughts!
Sorry for the slight blogger silence, I can't miss opportunities to inject some colour into my corpse white skin...back to the sun!
