    Fan Bing Bing!

  2. Chanel May 11, 2011 at 23:12 #

    This is the first time that I have absolutely NO idea who to vote for. Every woman was too beautiful. This festival has gotten a great start fashion-wise. Hopefully the rest will be as great.

      totally. a lot a lot fantanstic women.

  3. Cara May 11, 2011 at 23:22 #

    i cant decide between Fan Bing-Bing or Rachel McAdams in Marchesa!

  4. Jen May 11, 2011 at 23:26 #

    Fan gets my vote. The only one who looks truly original.

  5. mm May 11, 2011 at 23:28 #

    I went with Uma. This was tough

    • Elena May 12, 2011 at 15:56 #

      Me too, my eyes just kept going back to her.

  6. mol May 11, 2011 at 23:45 #

    My eye just keeps going back to Rachel in Marchesa, the overall look just draws me in; a close second has to be Salma in Gucci, it’s so good to see her finally look perfect!

  7. Dirk May 11, 2011 at 23:49 #

    Rachel McAdams in Marchesa.

    I seriously loved it even though a dress like that has massive potential to end up in ‘hot mess’ territory. She worked it.

    • Natalia May 12, 2011 at 18:14 #

      i totally agree… this dress is amazing but hard to pulled it off and she did it perfectly, i think.

  8. Shop Liquorice May 11, 2011 at 23:56 #

    Rachel is BEYOND. Appreciate all the work that goes into this blog — very well done :-)

  9. Tahlia May 12, 2011 at 00:11 #

    This is more exciting than the Oscars – I just can’t decide! I think I’m leaning towards Rachel McAdams in Marchesa but they all look so good (and it’s only day 1).

    • Mimy May 12, 2011 at 06:36 #

      ‘more exciting than the Oscars’ – I AGREE!! so hard to pick!!

  10. Laura May 12, 2011 at 00:20 #

    Tough choice, but I’m going with Rachel McAdams in Marchesa. Serious kudos to Rachel. She’s the only one on this poll twice and the only photo call look on the poll. Not an easy feet.

    And kudos to you FC. I am looking forward to what you’ll have to say about all of the Cannes looks.

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 00:35 #

      Merci xxx:D

      • Anna May 12, 2011 at 09:07 #

        And tell us FC will you go over there to cover it next year? :)

        • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 10:07 #

          Will do

  11. Elle May 12, 2011 at 00:46 #

    Ahhh I have just gotten back from a looooong working day and this was the perfect treat to unwind to!! FC, thank youuu for the amazing job as usual!!

    Absolutely LOVE every one of those gowns – I can’t remember the last time I looked all red carpet looks at an event, but that’s Cannes for you! Fantastique!! x

    • Elle May 12, 2011 at 00:47 #

      *liked… I was obviously SO excited writing that lol

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 01:04 #

      Sounds like a perfect way to end the day…glad you enjoyed the coverage

  12. Fromchi-town May 12, 2011 at 01:11 #

    Wow… This is a difficult choice, I don’t know who to vote for. In the end voted for salma Hayek, she looked perfect, sexy and glam!

    FC, thanks again for the superb coverage. I know we have a lot more to come, but I feel it was worth the wait!

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 01:39 #

      Thank u xx

  13. PamG May 12, 2011 at 02:03 #

    Salma looks so beautiful and put together! All the details are perfect – hair, makeup, accessories, making the package complete. Rachel McAdams and Uma Thurman looked amazing as well.

  14. Kyo May 12, 2011 at 02:06 #

    Fan Bingbing gets my vote. She is gorgeous.

  15. sparkz May 12, 2011 at 02:12 #

    aishwarya gets my vote for her beautiful face…thats alll………….i guess thats one thing they cant make a mess of……the dress is awfull……i officially hate cannes,loreal for doing this to her.

  16. Elaine May 12, 2011 at 02:53 #

    Ahhhh ur killing me here fc! For me it was a tough choice between Rachel mcadams in marchesa and uma in Versace! I went wit uma in the end,

    Cannes really seems to blow any othe red carpet event of this year outta the park – so excited for what the week has in store!!

    And thank you to u fc for amazing coverage – I look forward to seeing your fav looks x

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 10:27 #

      My pleasure…Uma seems to be the popular choice :)

  17. allen May 12, 2011 at 02:57 #

    i love fan bing bing

    she is my angel

  18. YQ May 12, 2011 at 02:58 #

    waaaa!Fan Bing Bing ,perfect!

  19. juliet May 12, 2011 at 03:33 #

    It is hard for me to choose between Fan bingbing and Uma. I can not wait to see the coming days.

  20. mari May 12, 2011 at 03:56 #

    noooo, FC, don’t make me do it!!!
    i can’t choose, I don’t want to vote! don’t wanna!
    :D
    Fan, salma, Karolina, Li and Uma. Can I vote for the five of them?

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 10:13 #

      Ha…I can only narrow it to 3 so I feel your pain

  21. mari May 12, 2011 at 03:56 #

    Ok, SAlma, only because she’s a fellow Mexican

  22. Vidhya May 12, 2011 at 04:47 #

    the marchesa is winning??? the dress is breathtaking but her shoes killed it plus she is not oozing attitude like Uma Thurman in Versace..

  23. Jackie May 12, 2011 at 05:26 #

    Rachel McAdams in Marchesa,Uma Thurman in Versace and Gong Li in Roberto Cavalli are most beautiful and top fasionable

  24. fashion May 12, 2011 at 06:17 #

    the white color is looking beautiful, gorgeous looking, thanks for sharing, i like it very much and i find it very help full and very informative hope that you will keep it up and will share more information as like this

  25. Saara May 12, 2011 at 06:18 #

    What a difficult choice! Fan and Rachel in Marchesa both look AMAZING, Uma and Karolina are my other favourites. In the end it was Fan all the way.

  26. Andy May 12, 2011 at 06:22 #

    Uma Thurman of course!! I LOVE Versace.

  27. roxana May 12, 2011 at 07:10 #

    very hard choice! i want to vote them all!

  28. jill (polkadot23) May 12, 2011 at 08:17 #

    Ha, I always get it ‘wrong': I voted for Gong Li because I loved that shade of purple on her colouring. They do all look great, but I can’t get my head around Rachel as such a light blonde.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful wonderful time in Cannes: I’m sure it’s amazing! xx

  29. shaik ahmed May 12, 2011 at 08:29 #

    Aishwarya is so beautiful….no one can match her elegance and beauty…

  30. Emi May 12, 2011 at 08:47 #

    rachel in Maxime Simoens, I love that dress, more than Marchesa’s. She’s perfect and lovely.

  31. Christine May 12, 2011 at 09:04 #

    Very exciting stuff indeed. I voted for Fan as she is absolutely ruthless and pulls off this wonderful gown with ease. Most of all, I like the Chinese reference.

  32. sue May 12, 2011 at 13:00 #

    bingbing !! u r the best~~

  33. christina May 12, 2011 at 13:15 #

    5,519 votes. You’ve gotten so popular FC! As always such a fantastic job in covering Cannes – I’ve been following your blog since November 2007 and I’ve loved to see how you’ve grown, added, and changed the site without ever giving up on amazing coverage. Thanks for all you do FC!!!

    Oh, and Fan for me. Love her and can’t wait to see all the stops she pulls out this year!

    • Fashion Critic May 12, 2011 at 14:58 #

      Thanks Jennifer….It does keep growing every year and it makes me so proud.

      2007 is the very beginning. I’m so glad you’ve supported me all this time.
