Uma Thurman In Chanel Couture – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Premiere

Only Uma Thurman can wear flats on the red carpet and still look 6ft tall.

The actress joined Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp on the red carpet for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” Premiere this evening.

She wore a Chanel Fall 2008 Couture gown.

Her gown with beaded embellishments also had a layered train and a satin sash which falls from the back.

I loved that Uma has gone back in the archives for this gown, but still manages to make her gown look like it’s fresh off-the-runway.

Uma has been outstanding during Cannes without upstaging the main stars of the premiere, which is no easy feat when you are as tall and gorgeous as she is.

    i think uma is really very pretty… i m not really a fan of this particular look and the gown… which is way too ill fitted :(

    its is a great downer after her impeccable look on day 1 #disappointed :(

      You’re right. The dress is ill-fitted, but in any case this is an easy win for her, because she’s tall and beautiful and can totally pull this dress off.

      Ditto.

    The gown makes her look pregnant. Is she? I haven’t liked anything she’s worn at Cannes.

    Maybe she looks 6ft tall because she is 6ft tall? :)
    She looks amazing. I love this dress, but she does look a little pregnant. Maybe its the pose. I think she looks amazing, but I want to see her in a color other than white!

      Something other than white would be great I agree, and I agree that the gown makes her look a little pregnant – hummmm….

      Just the point I was about to make! She looks 6ft tall in flats because she is 6ft tall in flats!

    I like the gown well enough but wish she’d stand up straight. Her posture is ruining this look for me.

      face it, white is in these days. White is the new black. Everyone is wearing it.

      • Thomas Monks May 15, 2011 at 15:30 #

        Its not that I dont like white in fact I love it ans she looks stunning here but I just wish that she would explore out of the neutrals and find color

    the dress is perfect from the knees down, the knees up it just looks very unflattering and a little baggy which is strange for a couture piece.

    • Emi May 14, 2011 at 20:14 #

      I agree with you, also, she looks pregnant, which means that a dress doesn’t do its job well.

  7. Lee Ann May 14, 2011 at 19:59 #

    To me all her outfits have blurred into one.

    • Fashion Critic May 14, 2011 at 20:17 #

      Yes, she should do some colour next time out

  8. Ingrid May 14, 2011 at 20:02 #

    i think she looks great!

  9. Tahj May 14, 2011 at 21:24 #

    Love it! The only reason it might not look perfect is because the shot used isn’t particularly flattering since she’s slouching. She looks goddess like in whites and beiges and that’s why she sticks to them. Color would just draw away attention from her allure.

    • Mia Spring May 15, 2011 at 03:27 #

      I agree, she looks fab in white~~If we have a better shot.

    The dress is OK, but I don’t like her shoes. I suppose she tried to be not VERY tall, but anyway… that flip-flops…

  11. couturecoco May 15, 2011 at 15:42 #

    I think she looks great without trying too hard. She usually handles her height very well – love her!

  12. Lucía May 15, 2011 at 16:25 #

    Beautiful :)

    Uma has it all…and mixture is great!
