Gwen Stefani In Armani Privé – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “This Must Be The Place” Premiere

Gwen Stefani graced the red carpet again during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for the “This Must Be The Place” Premiere this evening.

She opted to wear a very chic Armani Privé white silk gown with a black asymmetrical strap and an opening just above the waist.

I love the hair and I also love that her trademark red lippie is back, but the eye make-up is killing me.

It almost prevents me from liking this look because it’s too heavy.

Tri-colour Louboutin’s and a red clutch completed this look.

    The eye make-up is tragic.

    Heavy smokey eyes gone wrong. What a sad vision.

    I HATE her eye makeup SO badly it’s all I can focus on. Not only is it too much,it isn’t applied well. I like the dress but would have preferred it on someone a bit younger.

      It’s all I can focus on too

      I agree with you. If it was on a younger thing it would look less boring and more modern and have more of a Claire Danes Effect, which is what Gwen was going for. Thank god she wore a red clutch. The Taylor Momsen eyes would make a baby cry.

  4. Francesca May 20, 2011 at 18:42 #

    What was she thinking, did she look for an inspiration over at Taylor Momsen or what? I dare to say I hate this look.

    Oh Gwennie! Too much makeup! She’s so pretty…did she hire Christina Aguilera’s makeup artist?

    i like the dress, it’s also great from the back with the black stripe going through a bare back, but i don’t like the split into the 2 bows. somehow an modern, architectural gown tries to go cute. It’s a real bummer for me, as i love the idea of the black stripe going through the skirt.

  7. Molly May 20, 2011 at 18:50 #

    No no no. I agree that the eyes are a problem but to me the bigger problem is that this dress does NOTHING for her. Not the color, not the fit, not the style. Maybe the eye makeup was trying to distract. :-)

  8. sabrina May 20, 2011 at 18:51 #

    The makeup is wayyyy too harsh.

  9. Fernando May 20, 2011 at 18:52 #

    The make up is fine, THIS is gwen steffani, this dramatic makeup is hers.

    really she looks fantastic and for anyone who has followed when steffani forever, this is her, her look.
    she looks stunning

    • Fashion Critic May 20, 2011 at 19:10 #

      Not like this.

      It looks like Zuma applied her make-up tonight

      • Fernando May 20, 2011 at 20:12 #

        Hahahahahahahahahaaha got it FC

    My girl is wearing me out!

  11. ayishaa May 20, 2011 at 19:32 #

    Its not only the eye makeup that is wearing me out, the fitting of the dress from the waist up looks poor

  12. Letícia May 20, 2011 at 19:40 #

    This dress is SO her. The makeup might not be great, but it’s not keeping me from loving it!

  13. mol May 20, 2011 at 19:42 #

    This is a cautionary tale on how something as small as eye makeup can destroy a whole look – her overdone eyes have wrecked this, and i actually like the dress….

  14. Anna May 20, 2011 at 19:44 #

    no comments about the eye make-up. The dress is amazing, but the fitting is just not right, and most importantly, the colour is not working for her.

  15. Emi May 20, 2011 at 20:21 #

    I don’t why but I thought of Cruella Demon, when I saw her (I don’t know if the name is right because they change the names). The make up is tragic, maybe Zuma did it (LOL, FC), but, also, the fact that she’s not curvy makes me think that she has 2 bras. No, I don’t like it.

    • Rebecca May 20, 2011 at 22:50 #

      Cruella DeVille–good call. But, i still like the dress and think she has great style. I do want to take a kleenex to her eyelids, though!

    • Molly May 21, 2011 at 00:56 #

      I totally agree with the “two bras” comment – exactly what I thought.

    • KateS May 21, 2011 at 02:46 #

      I agree about the bras – the way this dress fits gives her such an odd four-boob effect. Fitted and with softer eye makeup, I think I would have loved it.

      • Emi May 21, 2011 at 20:29 #

        Yes, it’s a pity because she could look great. The second bra should have been tighter, to avoid that ugly effect.

  16. Tahj May 20, 2011 at 20:21 #

    This IS Gwen Stefani. Perfect look for HER.

  17. sweetjess98 May 20, 2011 at 21:13 #

    everything is great about this look except the heavy eye make-up.IT distracts me .

  18. laura D May 20, 2011 at 21:18 #

    If she wanted to do punk eyes, she should have gone with a paler foundation and nude lips.

  19. justme May 20, 2011 at 21:51 #

    Even at the amFAR gala, the eye make-up was bad. I was surprised not many people commented on it.
    I know heavy make-up is Gwen’s trademark but it never used to look terrible. It’s like she uses painting brushes to apply it.

  20. 00o00 May 20, 2011 at 22:11 #

    i feel that the dress didn’t fit very well, almost a little loose. her off duty looks are better…

  21. moja31 May 21, 2011 at 02:47 #

    that eye makeup is insane. did taylor momsen do her makeup for her?

  22. AL GIGA May 21, 2011 at 11:14 #


  23. Em May 22, 2011 at 06:26 #

    Ugh I just keep seeing a double set of boobs with that lower bow …. (And those dark eyes are way too much )

  24. Hadara May 23, 2011 at 06:07 #

    The dress is growing on me.

    Agree that the “bar scuffle” eye is horrid. As a person who likes dramatic makeup, I tend to actually like how she does hers.

    The heavy black smokey-eye, however, does really work past your early 30s, And that’s if you’re ageing well. It has the effect of ageing a person horribly, especially if they are fair.

  26. J May 24, 2011 at 12:19 #

    I actually love the whole look.
