‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The premiere of ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ on Sunday (May 21) brought a number of other stars to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

Clotilde Courau: Clotilde brought a gilded touch to the proceedings with her embroidered Georges Hobeika gown. Just don’t look too closely at the nude illusion components that provided a slightly distracting tint to the majestic gold filigree look.

Barbara Meier: Electric blue will always be one of my favourite colours, especially with the fiery red locks of Barbara’s. So, I’m not sure why I wasn’t completely in awe of this Alexis Mabille Couture look. I blame the stiff, structured silhouette of the off-the-shoulder bodice that seemed a bit awkward.

Laetitia Casta: The slashed-to-there look comes back yet again in this Saint Laurent Fall 2017 gown, and in case you had any chance of missing the thigh-high slit, this one’s embellished in crystals. It’s nothing revolutionary for Cannes, but a sleek bun would have been in order to better highlight her gorgeous earrings.

Anya Taylor-Joy: I always enjoy seeing what Anya brings to the red carpet, but I was promptly disappointed with this Burberry lace prairie gown that had something of a strange space-age bent with its metallic lining. The half-up topknot only contributed to the futuristic confusion. Chopard jewels finished the look.

Heike Makatsch: This look landed in lacklustre territory for me, starting with the bland colour palette and the standard asymmetric silhouette. Seeing her faux-hawk-style ‘do from the side didn’t help.

Mary J. Blige: Oh, Mary J. Why this fashion calamity at Cannes? As if the sheer components and spidery, costumish embroidery of this Reem Acra design wasn’t enough, why the blue fingernails and misplaced jewels.


Anja Rubik:
With her model proportions, Anja could flaunt a far more memorable look for Cannes. But, we’ll have to settle with this Saint Laurent mini that did have a certain sculptural impact with its crystal-embellished, sculpted sleeve.

Isabelle Huppert: Isabelle disappointed us the last time out, and unfortunately, this bespoke Chloé look fared no better as it seemed to swallow her whole.

Molly Sims: Molly made sure to bring the whimsy to the red carpet with this feathered and sequin Monique Lhuillier Spring 2017 creation. Leaving no plume un-turned, she carried a kate spade new york ‘Evening Belles Pearl Emanuelle’ clutch with a similar feather motif and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.

I’m sure I won’t be alone in not being altogether impressed with this roundup. What do you make of it?

    Clotilde looked most polished, meh to the rest of the bunch.

    Barbara looks great in that electric blue. I love the structured collar/bodice, it seems from another time.
    The rest are meh.

    I’m not wowed by any of them, but Molly and Laetitia look really nice, in their own way. I don’t find anything to fault in their looks.

  5. Caroline May 21, 2017 at 21:53 #

    Molly’s dress is by Monique Lhuillier.

  6. Caroline May 21, 2017 at 21:52 #

    I am completely in love with Barbara’s and Laetitia’s look.

  7. Tenacious May 21, 2017 at 21:20 #

    I like Heike Makatsch’s dress actually. I think it would have better suited someone like Lupita.

  8. Chris May 21, 2017 at 21:14 #

    That awful thing Mary J. Blinge is wearing is by Reem Acra, btw.

    • Chris May 21, 2017 at 23:12 #

      And Isabelle’s gown is by Chloe, I think. I’m like 80% sure. lol

  9. TeaAtTwo May 21, 2017 at 20:50 #

    I love Barbara Meier’s look.

  10. Charlotte May 21, 2017 at 20:28 #

    Even if it’s nothing new, Laetitia Casta looks gorgeous!

    • Ramsay May 22, 2017 at 04:06 #

      Agreed
      It’s also a bit wintery
      Still she is my favorite of the day

  11. Hermoine May 21, 2017 at 20:25 #

    What a mess ….. the blue on Barbara is nice, that’s all I’ve got

  12. meme May 21, 2017 at 20:23 #

    What was Mary J. Blige thinking? That dress is horrid. The entire look is horrid. Why is she even there? All the rest are boring or fug.

    • Leandra May 21, 2017 at 20:52 #

      She is looking like that character of Taraji in the Empire series.

    • SilentVisitor May 21, 2017 at 22:52 #

      Yes, Mary’s look is horrible but why is she there? Have you asked the same question for the countless of people who are in Cannes right now and who have been featured? Incredible!!!

      By default, Barbara and Laeticia

      • Christine May 22, 2017 at 05:27 #

        I am with SilentVistor. How come you didn’t asked by Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and all the others why they are there in Cannes?

        Funny

  13. Alina May 21, 2017 at 20:23 #

    Underwhelmed by this bunch.

  14. Tina May 21, 2017 at 20:12 #

    Molly sims is wearing Monique Lhuillier. She got the dress shortened.

  15. Chris May 21, 2017 at 20:08 #

    I love Isabelle’s look, actually. So classy and chic. The beauty look is gorgeous as well. Yes, the sleeves are… a lot, but she pulls them off with ease imo.
    The others leave me unimpressed.
