Zhang Yuqi is gorgeous but we´ve seen this kind of bridal-esque mermaid look so many times before, absolutely nothing to get excited about, Hayden Panettiere wore the same gown (if I´m not mistaken) beautifully at Golden Globe Awards.
My vote goes to Zoe in Emanuel Ungaro, the only look that I liked 100% without a single complaint. I would´ve considered voting for her Valentino if I hadn´t felt so disappointed, I really counted on her of all people to bring something fresh and original. It´s still a lovely look of course but underwhelming.
Zoe Saldana in Valentino just edges Zoe in Ungaro. I hate it when this happens because both looks are worthy.
The more I look at the Valentino the more I appreciate how exquisite that dress truly is. As someone mentioned in the original post, the aerial shot is breathtaking and that is not a word I use on the regular. Zoe Saldana brought her A game today. Honorable mention — Milla.
You totally echoed my thoughts. I hate it when I have to choose between 2 amazing looks. But I finally voted for the Valentino because it’s just too exquisite a look. My second and third favourites r of course Zoe’s Ungaro look & Milla’s Chanel Couture look.
I’m just bored by Zhang Yuqi’s Cavalli gown. Liked her Monique Lhuillier one better. And I’m hugely disappointed by Marion Cotillard because I can’t get her Dior look last year out of my head & I expect much much more from her. I’m really very sad.
It’s a toss up for me between Zhang Yuqi in Cavalli and Zoe Saldana in Ungaro, both of which I love head to toe.
It’s true that ZY’s look is nothing new but it is a perfect presentation of a classic silhouette. It’s Cannes, it’s a gown, it’s beautifully styled.
OTOH, I love Zoe’s Ungaro look. The more at look at it, the more I like the artistry of the design, the clever use of diagonals. And Zoe really sells it with her styling and presence.
So I think tonight I will pass up the gowns and I will vote for Zoe in Ungaro.
You know, “I was expecting more” seems to fit my feeling about the whole of Cannes this year. I mean there were some stunning gowns and I love Zoe here, but last year’s had gowns I still think about to this day, and I can’t say the same about anything this year, except maybe Nieves’ and Nicole Kidman.
I can’t believe it, but Cannes is underwhelming me.
Maybe this is just post-Diane syndrome.
mte. Most of the dresses I’ve seen at Cannes are so ‘meh’ and underwhelming this year.
I miss Diane too and it’s affecting my overall appreciation of cannes! she was my best dressed in cannes for the past 2 years
i tried to keep an open mind about the red carpet but there are only 3 dresses that i found cannes-worthy. sonam, nieves and nicole….
Hmm….I wonder why Sammi Cheng’s long sleeve greyish pink dress she wore for “Blind Detective” is not in. The presentation gives a breeze of freshness over the -what is expected- She dressed the dress so well and gives another definition on what is feminine.
Even though the styles are getting better everyday, we still expect more. I want to see something big, someone who can “WOW” us. Where’s Diane when we need her so bad?
Zoe Saldana in Emanuel Ungaro is my favorite today. She looks confident and stylish, love the orange pump.
FC I know you’re dead tired and have to pay to use photos so I definitely not asking you to dedicate a post or anything like that but OMG Selita Ebanks: canary yellow, long train, hair up, red lippie. I’m in heaven:
Just in case you missed it, hope it brightens your day.
Thanks for the coverage FC, you rock!
I didn’t miss it. I didn’t want to feature it.
Kind of a snappy response to a comment with good intentions, Catherine. I don’t think she (or he) wanted anything but for you to see it.
How is it snappy? It was factual. Like any publication the editor has the final say on who or what gets published.
I was live blogging at the time, so it was a quick response.
I’m sorry, sometimes tone gets lost in writing.
Wow, I actually like all the looks. To be sure, I love some of them–
1. Zoe in Valentino
4. Zhang Ziyi
5. Zhang Yuqi
6. Zoe (Ungaro)
Zoe in Ungaro. Thus far, Cannes has been underwhelming. Where is Diane Kruger???!!!!
