    definitely Diana!

  2. Nat39 May 17, 2012 at 22:39 #

    Diane followed by Tilda – the 2 who popped at me in this poll immediately (before I looked through all the individual posts). Jane’s hair brings her look down for me.

    • Nat39 May 17, 2012 at 22:40 #

      *Diane in G. Valli.

  3. Giselle May 17, 2012 at 22:27 #

    Why isn’t Fan Bingbing on this list?? She looks amazing

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 22:41 #

      Because I there were better looks. I think that is clear by her absence

  4. MissMarlboroLites May 17, 2012 at 21:09 #

    Tilda and Diane in Giambattista Valli are joint best for me, with Jane a very close second! You did right here leaving our Fan Bing Bing, FC. As you said – who would you take out?!

  5. Aaron May 17, 2012 at 20:21 #

    where is Fan Bingbing?
    i think she is best!

  6. Amy May 17, 2012 at 20:19 #

    Diane is my first pick (of course) for her two AMAZING looks.Then come Freida, her dress was beautiful,but still original.
    As always Jane fonda gets a special mention for looking that great at her age. The woman is an alien!!

  7. I love Jane Fonda in Atelier Versace
    Bérénice Béjo in Louis Vuitton
    Diane Kruger in Giambattista Valli
    Eva Herzigova in Dolce & Gabbana
    These dresses fit these stars perfectly and look awsome on them. I love these designers as well. Eva longoria’s dress is too much.

  8. Palm Lopez May 17, 2012 at 16:08 #

    Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann 😉

  9. Alina May 17, 2012 at 16:02 #

    Diane Kruger in Valli.

    Can’t wait for tonight!

  10. MoxieSue May 17, 2012 at 15:40 #

    With no Fan Bingbing, I went with Diane Kruger in Giambattista Valli.

  11. Gianluca May 17, 2012 at 14:45 #

    What a red carpet! These are stunning looks not the ones at the MET…

  12. Nat May 17, 2012 at 14:35 #

    I gave my vote to Diane, she easily wins for me. I also loved Fan Bing Bing’s look, but I think I still would have voted for Diane, even if Fan was in the poll.

    My other favourites are Jane Fonda (geez, did she make a pact with the devil or what? she look incredible!) and Berenice (whyyyyy didn’t she wear this to the Oscars??)

    I might be the only one, but I hate Eva’s look. Not only it gives me a dejavu feeling, but the proportions are all wrong: it makes her upper part look wide, and then it seems she has no legs but only tons of tulle attached to her…awkward.

    Between Cannes and today’s other looks (Naomi, Charlize, Cobie) I think these have been the best couple of days for fashion. 😀

  13. Jones19 May 17, 2012 at 14:15 #

    I was gonna vote for Frieda Pinto yesterday because she brought something fresh and unexpected to the table but seeing them all together I gotta go with Diane. Her look is growing on me fast!

  14. Leo May 17, 2012 at 13:37 #

    Jane Fonda takes it by a mile. Beauty is ageless and she can outfierce anyone.

  15. Niki May 17, 2012 at 13:24 #

    Diane Kruger looks like a cross between Grace Kelly and a Greek goddess. The colour and the cut of the dress are beautiful. Absolutely stunning.

  16. dee May 17, 2012 at 13:18 #

    Diane all the way.

  17. Andy May 17, 2012 at 13:00 #

    where is Fan Bing Bing???

    • Lauren May 17, 2012 at 14:27 #

      I’m glad she is not here…I would hate for Cannes to become the Fan Bingbing show like it did last year.

      She is so boring

      • dee May 17, 2012 at 17:30 #


      • natalia May 19, 2012 at 14:14 #

        i wander why you thought it’s boring?

  18. Annel May 17, 2012 at 12:21 #

    I’ll go with Freida. But must say there are a lot of other great dressed too. Jane Fonda, Herzigova, Tilda Swinton, and Fan Bing Bing too. Though I cannot really grasp the hype around Diane Kruger. She’s impeccable but her aura is not magnetic to me just somewhat plain and neat.

  19. Luis May 17, 2012 at 11:39 #


  20. freddy May 17, 2012 at 11:14 #

    and one thing Bérénice Béjo is even on the list?she look terrible!the dress not even suit her!

  21. freddy May 17, 2012 at 11:13 #

    no fan bing bing?she’s one if the best fc!

  22. justme May 17, 2012 at 11:00 #

    I went with Freida on this one. It was original but still pretty.

  23. Charlotte May 17, 2012 at 10:58 #

    I voted Diane…. She looked like goddess walking on a cloud! Okay, perhaps not quite but she did look magnificent! I was sort of bothered by Eva’s hair, to be honest! Ish it was just a sleek bun, with the fringe all pulled back.. Looked to casual IMO!

    Loved your coverage for day 1, FC! So excited to have Cannes back.. Exactly what I need to help me get though exams!

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 11:04 #

      Thank you…good luck with you exams

  24. Fanny May 17, 2012 at 10:50 #

    I liked Eva Longoria in her second dress and Fan Bing Bing, but since they aren’t here I voted for Diane. Great colour, great dress, perfect jewellry.

  25. manja May 17, 2012 at 10:48 #

    I wld take out Eve L in favor of Fan BB,since you are asking-:)))don’t think Eva belongs here this time,so deja vu and not flattaring at all(seems even shorter the she is with that too long and too big train),bur I respect your choices.Love your blog,you are the best tehre is.

  26. louiscummings May 17, 2012 at 10:12 #

    NO BING BING FAN??? How is that even possible??!

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 10:33 #

      OK..who would you take out for Fan?

      I don’t think she beats anyone here. The dress was nice, but not close to the last two years of the opening ceremony

  27. gavengong May 17, 2012 at 10:04 #

    hey,you forget fan bingbing

  28. Karolina May 17, 2012 at 09:08 #

    I love them all! But my heart belongs to Diane:)

  29. Yeliz May 17, 2012 at 08:55 #

    This is a tough choice on day 1 already. The most women were amazing last night but I guess I have to go with Diane in Giambattista Valli. She looked like a goddess and I’m just in love with this look.
    Freida Pinto is a veeeeery close second followed by Eva Longoria.

    FC why is Lana Del Rey not in the poll?

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 09:56 #

      Because I can’t fit everyone. Please can we accept what is up there instead of asking why x isn’t there.

  30. Louis Loouis May 17, 2012 at 08:27 #

    no Fan BingBing’s China suit?

  31. Riley May 17, 2012 at 08:12 #

    No Fan Bing Bing?

  32. Swetha May 17, 2012 at 06:03 #

    FC, you always do a fanatstic job! I swear by your blog!! Thank you! Oh, my choices would be Eva in Dolce and Gabbana & Frieda in Michael Angel! The rest are beautiful in their own right, but when you spread the looks like this, only these stand out! My vote goes to Frieda for the freshness…Love,XOXO

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 09:58 #

      Thank u x

  33. kathryn May 17, 2012 at 05:23 #

    First time I have ever wanted to vote for two winners, it was tough to decide between Diane and Eva. Ultimately I went for Eva, Cannes is her one shining moment all year.

  34. j May 17, 2012 at 05:03 #

    I sooo want Diane’s Versus dress! FC is it available somewhere? I’m sure it’s far too expensive, but I can wish, right?

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 09:59 #

      Not until Aug I think

  35. Fiona May 17, 2012 at 04:35 #

    Love both Diana’s looks but just can’t go past this amazing colour on her – so dreamy but not insipid. Love her coiffed hair too – perfect.

  36. asherlev1 May 17, 2012 at 04:11 #

    I’m kind of shocked Fan Bing Bing isn’t on this list. I would have voted for her, for once. Loool, the irony.

  37. Rebecca May 17, 2012 at 04:11 #

    Tough one… Diane Kruger in Giambattista Valli
    & Eva Herzigova in Dolce & Gabbana. I loved both.

  38. tommy May 17, 2012 at 03:46 #

    why not Fanbingbing,i thought she were the best

  39. EmmaWoodhouse May 17, 2012 at 03:14 #

    Three out of my four faves were here…I missed Fan but was glad to see that Diane, Eva, and Berenice were on the poll. Although Diane just might be my favorite I loved that Eva went for three-quarter length sleeves and she needs my vote more so I voted for her.
    Thanks for an amazing day, FC! 🙂

  40. Chloe May 17, 2012 at 02:46 #

    No Fan Bing Bing? I loved her. I also love Diane is Versus

  41. carol May 17, 2012 at 02:44 #

    fan bing bing

  42. Riley May 17, 2012 at 02:41 #

    I voted for Freida because she needs my vote. Diane in Valli is obviously going to win.

  43. TL May 17, 2012 at 02:28 #

    Gosh it’s so hard to pick one, the four ladies: Diane K, Eva L, Freida P and Jane F all looked gorgeous…

    I think I will pick Diane, as this sea Goddess is truly breath-taking.

  44. Sher May 17, 2012 at 02:23 #

    Day 1 and we already have Elie Saab, Atlelier Versace, and Marchesa?! What a fantastic start! Thanks, as always, for the incredible coverage FC!

  45. Mandy May 17, 2012 at 02:16 #

    No Fan Bing Bing for you ?

  46. Linda May 17, 2012 at 02:05 #

    Frieda for her unique and refreshing gown. She’s never looked better. Diane is my second.

  47. Fer May 17, 2012 at 01:56 #

    I really can’t believe how little appreciation Tilda Swinton’s dress got!.

    Eva Longoria, Diane Kruger and Fan Bing Bing in the same red carpet, it’s really a dream for any red carpet fashion lover, i just cannot wait for THE moment i have been waiting for all this year, after the oscars, the met ball, and all the big red carpet events of this year, for me, there hasn’t been an unforgettable moment, i hope that in this red carpet, we get amazed by someone. I just hope so.

    Thanks for your dedication, by far the BEST blog there is.

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 10:06 #

      Thank u very much xx

  48. V. May 17, 2012 at 01:48 #

    I love Diane´s dress, but I go with Berenice. She capture my eyes!
    FC, who was your best dressed?

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 10:07 #

      Jane, Diane and Berenice

      • SilentVisitor May 17, 2012 at 20:35 #

        I so agree with you on this one. for me it was, in order, Jane, Berenice, Eva and Diane

  49. Hisadora May 17, 2012 at 01:24 #

    It was just impossible not to vote on Jane… I’m still delighted on how amazing she looks in that Versace dress!!!!

    • kath May 17, 2012 at 09:58 #

      + 1

    • SilentVisitor May 17, 2012 at 13:29 #

      Exactly. She got my vote too. She was amazing!!!!!!!!

      • Juststoppingby May 18, 2012 at 01:11 #

        Me too! Fabulous!

  50. Chanel May 17, 2012 at 01:03 #
