FYI Lana wore Lena Hoschek.

Best Dressed, Blog, Cannes Film Festival
Lana Del Rey. Runner-up Carey Mulligan. I also really loved Nicole’s look, but not really her hair when I saw it from the side.
Thanks for an amazing Day 1 coverage, FC. Here’s to the next 11 days!
thanks and yes, bring it on
Gaaah, Nicole Kidman is leading this?
I thought her gown was too twee and sugary; it reminded me of her film “The Stepford Wives”. It’s certainly not dramatic or glamourous enough for the Cannes OPENING NIGHT. Maybe for a lesser premiere during the festival.
My vote went to Zhang Yuqi, though Fan and Vahina are close seconds.
Nicole Kidman is enchanting in that sweet confection, glad it wasn’t one of her typical column gowns, kudos to her for this unexpected look, and her presentation was impeccable, and I do think that she will be a very deserving winner of this poll. But I’m not in love with this look however, a bit too sugary sweet. My favourite was Naomie Harris who looked sublime in her silver Calvin Klein gown, she gets my vote.
my top 5 list
1.Nicole Kidman (BDOTY nominee worthy)
3.Lana Del Rey
None of these looks really wowed me, but my favorite of day 1 was Cara Delevigne, she looked very Glam and Gatsby-esque, but in a modern way.
Even though i’m a Nicole lover and usually vote for her by default, i’m not really on board with the Dior. I can totally see her daintily taking flight to become some neglected girl’s fairy godmother. She gets points for going new places with her hair and style though.
I went with Frieda.
It has to be Kidman
The refinement, difficulty and originality of the embroidery on that dress is the best we’ve seen in a very long time
It’s so easy to wear a puffy/flowy ball gown and look all pretty and lady like. What Sonam did was unique, traditional and unabashedly striking!
She’s in my BDOTY list!
your name says it all!!! she does not even feature in one of the best dressed
I completely disagree with Anu, and also don’t think sonam deserves to be in the poll due to the overkill of the couture!
However I feel your comments are racist and this isn’t a platform where you should behave like this…
My best dressed for day 1 is Nicole! She was vision of perfection!
PS: Wonderful going FC, lets hope Day 2 gives us more stunning looks !!
Sonam who??? dont even know who she is!
+1 and that nose ring was absolutely awful. She looked like a bull
I had hoped you’d feature Elizabeth Debicki.To me she’s the standout in the Gatsby cast. And she looks like a much taller Rooney and gallops on screen with Cate’s confidence.
I do like to vote for a Big Gown on opening night but my two favorites this year are Nicole Kidman and Naomie Harris. I will probably have to flip a coin to decide which one to vote for!
Of the Big Gown ladies, I especially like Fan Bing Bing and Zhang Yuqi. (Fan’s gown may be a disappointment for those of us expecting a grand Asian theme, but she does look lovely and still has that dramatic Cannes presence.)
Zhang followed by Nicole. The rest of the looks were not memorable.
Easy. Nicole Kidman all the way
If you have ever watched NIcole in interviews and read about her in magazines, then you’d know the Dior couture is perfect for her personality.
Nicole is too old for that dress. That dress belongs to someone who looks a lot more youthful, Elle Fanning, and even Carey Mulligan in her pixie cut days.
Where the heck is Paz Vega???
1. Mulligan – classic
2. Giocante – Saab – so elegantly sexy
3. Knowles – Oh, did I ever love the waft on that gown!
My top 3:
1. Nicole Kidman in Christian Dior Couture
2. Vahina Giocante in Elie Saab
3. Zhang Yuqi in Ulyana Sergeenko Couture
Who was your favourite, FC?
Nicole and Zhang Yuqi
Another bollywood star Vidya Balan is also in the jury… she looked regal in a white saree for the first day photocall… Please keep an eye on her n do post if u find it interesting… she wears Indian designer Sabyasachi saress n amparpali jewels…
yeh the indian chick at cannes… she looks regal in the dark red clothes but not in her white thingy!
Whoever you are Ms.Hannah—RCFA is not the forum to stage your racist mean attitude! First you belittle Sonam,and now Vidya–i mean “chick”? As far as this forum is considered, if Catherine knows who they are, that is good enough…we are not seeking your approval!
I miss Audrey Tautou here. So my vote goes to Mulligan.
I agree. I can’t believe Audfrey Tautou is not here. I’m not a fan of her look usually but her dress was gorgeous !
I really thought she’s be featured. She looked gorgeous. I also miss Clotilde Courau, Ludivine Sagnier and Inès de la Fressange.
Still you’re doing an amazing job and you can’t feature everybody. Thanks for your work
Like many others, I am a bit disappointed at the first day of Cannes, since no one really wowed me. Wish they can all do better (they HAVE to！) in the next few days.
Top 3 for me
Audrey Tautou in her Yiqing Yin dress was my best dressed, definitely.
Finally I went with Carey. Simplicity (gown) and drama (red lips.) I also really liked Solange! Two other contenders were Zhang and Vahina but the dresses were a little too revealing for my taste. Good first day, thank you very much for the great coverage, FC. Much appreciated and will make the next 10 days really enjoyable.xxx
Thanks…I am sure they will be…fingers crossed
Srsly, this is better than Christmas!!! Thx Fashion Critic for covering this fab event!
I am torn between the exclusive tailoring of Mulligan’s dress and the playful vibe of Pinto’s. But I’ll go with Mulligan, I think.
Audrey Tautou was an ether vision in her dress. She was my best dressed of the night.
I voted for Carey’s elegance in this amazing minimalist Dior gown. She was closely followed by Zhang Yuqi
Nicole Kidman hands down. She oozes glamour even without trying. I’m so happy it seems she’s back.
It was a tie for me between Zhang Yuqi and Nicole Kidman. I voted for Kidman because she looked so damn classy in the pics where she stood laughing under the umbrella but also because she had a fabulous run the whole day (her two other outfits were great too).
Carey Mulligan很优雅 Zhang Yuqi让我大跌眼镜很喜欢
Fan Bingbing is so beautiful
Nicole Kidman deserves to be number 1. The floral Christian Dior dress complements her skin and her hair is just edgy. This look was a complete about-face from her black Alexander McQueen dress.
My top three were Lana Del Ray, Nicole Kidman and Zhang Yuqi. So hard to pick just one!
I can’t decide between minimalist Carey and the Zhang Yuqi’s opulent dress. Two extremes. I love it Plus I really dislike Nicole Kidman’s Dior. Too sweet little girl for her.
I love Nicole Kidman and her gown is amazing. However, I miss Diane Kruger. I also am not getting chills on opening day like I did last year …
It’s not the same without Jane Fonda & Eva Longoria. they are magical on the Cannes Stage …
Zhnag Yuqi is so fantasy!
Zhang Yuqi is so sexy ..
