2009 Cannes Film Festival Catch Up – Part 2

“Antichrist” Premiere

Charlotte Gainsbourg walked the red carpet at her movie premiere last night, looking stunning in a black and white splash print Balenciaga dress, with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

It may not be what you would expect to see on the Cannes red carpet, but this is very much Charlotte’s style, plus she is good friends with the designer Nicolas Ghesquière.

You can give a girl a pretty dress, expensive jewels and lessons on how to pose on the red carpet, but you can’t give her charisma.

Rosanna Arquette has that by the bucket load.

Like Kate Hudson she has a magnetism that draws you in, and I adore her cowl back gold sequin gown.

She’s just oozing sex appeal.

Marion Cotillard should have worn the runway belt with her Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, her dress has no shape without it.

Yves Saint Laurent cage ankle boots complete her all black look.

With t-bar Christian Louboutin heels, Georgina Chapman wore her own black and gold Marchesa embroidered silk dress with a draped chiffon overlay.

Both Miley Cyrus, and Heidi Klum have worn this stunning piece.

“A Night of Hollywood Domino”

I could have loved Paris Hilton in her silver sequin strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 cocktail dress with a dramatic bow front, as it looks soooo gorgeous on the runway.

The problem for me is that Paris over did the accessories.

The accessories are competing with the dress, and the dress should stand alone.

Lily Cole already has incredibly long legs, so it beggars belief why she wore nude heels to elongate her legs even further.

Lily wears the now well worn Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 taupe flapper dress.

Penelope Cruz wore an ivory John Richmond gown, with silver embellishments. I really wish she had removed her satin Balmain jacket for this photo. I’m dying to see the rest of the dress.

Olivia Palermo leaves me in despair as to why she wore YSL tribute sandals in black, with a pretty floral dress. She works in fashion right?

Malin Ackerman wore a bubble gum pink Versace dress, which has to be one of the most uninspired gowns I have seen at Cannes.

Peaches Geldof went head to toe red, wearing a red satin Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress.

For once I like this look.

    GO CHARLOTTE, GO CHARLOTTE, GO CHARLOTTE!
    Is it just me, or did Marion got tan? Anyway, she looks chic, as she always does.
    Lily looks great in that dress.
    Who made Olivia’s dress? It’s SO cute and summery!
    I like the particular shade of Malin’s dress, but the shape is indeed very dull. Her hair looks blah, too.
    Finally, Miss Cruz looks quite lame. Maria Elena would definitely NOT aprove!!

    Well it is no wonder Robert Arquette transformed into Alexis Arquette, with a sister like that…

    And someone wore an unbleted Lanvin? Gasp! Tisk tisk.

    i don’t like Lily Cole’s look at all… too short and that shape… i think she can do much better. And about Marion you are totally right, it would have looked very different with the belt!

    I completely agree with you about Paris over-accessorizing, she ruins that dress. It looks beautiful and perfect on the model, on Paris she just looks like Barbie with a sparkly dress on.
    She shouldn’t be allowed near such beautiful garments.

    Olivia’s dress looks like it come from the Mary-Kate-Olsen-oversized-tunics bin.

    Hello, FC, P. Cruz?? Suprised there are still no pics from the photocall…

    It’s lunchtine in the UK. I’m having lunch :)

    Shame on you!! You dare to eat, sleep, or even breathe during the Cannes Film Fstival, and I’ll…!!! :)))))
    Bon appétit!

    Oh, btw, Vienna Life Ball had them all! Talk about celebs gone crazy and HOT models wearing HOT dresses (case in point: Anja Rubik ROCKED the red carpet in a cyclamen dress high/low dress from Balmain’s Spring collection). Not saying you should post it, but take a look at it, for your own pleasure!

    Georgina Chapman really needs to start modifying her dresses, or at least try to wear them before celebrities get to them! I wish she’d worn her hair up with this dress. Penelope Cruz looks gorgeous, but maybe she wore the blazer cos the dress looks like it’s slipping down! Also; I thought Lily Cole was studying at Cambridge, how did she manage to go to Cannes??

    charlotta, wow i actually hated this dress on the runway but charlotte looks great.

    rosanna, normally that dress would be tacky and cheap looking but just makes it look classy and sexy, but not overly vulgar sexy. stunning!

    marion, she has lost so much of her sparkle *cries*, i would have prefer some nice colour on her.

    georgina, she is gorgeous, BUT does she own any other shoes she only ever has 3 pairs of shoes, those t-bar louboutins, louboutin salopette strass and a louboutin pump.

    paris, the dress itself is stunning but paris makes it trashy.

    lily, her legs are really really skinny. the dress is gorgeous though, i think her shoeas are jimmy choo pascal.

    penelope, the dress looks gorgeous or atleast from what you can see.

    olivia, wow she picked a predictable pair of shoes. shame because the dress is lovely.

    malin, thats it? nothing stands out boring.

    peaches, the dress is boring yet more dolce and gabbana bustier dresses, her shoes are the only thing i actually like.

    NOOO..what has happened to marion cotillard! that image of her at the oscars in gaultier is slowly fading :(

    Oh but Penelope Cruz was ailing! Poor signorita was suffering from food poisoning. Personally I would’ve been in a cosy jumper at home so I thought she did pretty well even making it to the Dominoes do.

    GO CHARLOTTE, GO CHARLOTTE, GO CHARLOTTE![x2]

    So, so so cool!
