    Catherine, I ❤️ You! Absolutely nailed it! Kudos!

    I agree with all of these!! With a tie at Worst Dressed between Emily and Rihanna’s light blue concoction.

    Also, Armani took some days to appear, but oh man when it did, what a run of amazing looks.

    Thank you so much for the coverage and for these fantastic roundup posts! I enjoy them so much, including the comments! It’s a great way to say goodbye to the most significant dates in the red carpet year.

    Cant stop laughing at ground hog day picture. Literally did a double take when i saw the outfits side by side. ROFL !

    I completely agree with Rihanna’s award. #HoHum

    This is so fun! I agree with most and appreciate all. Elle was my Cannes Princess too 🙂

    I have to admit I was left underwhelmed this year, Cannes is just not the same anymore.
    I had high expectations from Sonam Kapoor and especially Fan Bingbing but they both failed to deliver the WOW factor.
    “The groundhog day award”was so golden I wish there is a like button so I can push it.
    Thanks again for the amazing coverage FC

    Aishwarya deserve to win..she was effortlessly stunning.

    Spot on! Always look forward to your coverage. Ashwarya was the queen. Her two looks were spectacular! Sonam was very disappointing, almost identical dresses. Chompoo was another favourite and fan bing a disappointment other then the last day in Versace. Jessica chastain for me also in need of a new stylist like Eva longoria.

    Thank you for the fantastic coverage. I agree with most of these although I’d probably give worst dressed to Great Gerwig in Rodarte.

    Thank you, FC, for your tireless coverage which, as far as I am concerned, makes you as much Cannes royalty as any on this list. So glad you are back!

    And co-signing especially your “Most Underrated” award. Juliette Binoche was a revelation.

    I agree with most of your assessment, FC! Aishwarya Rai single handedly provided the gasp worthy moment at Cannes that we all wait for!

    As usual FC, wonderful coverage for Cannes and wonderful critique.

    Will forever be disappointed at how much vitriol Kirsten’s red carpet look got. I’m a fan.

    • Huda June 3, 2017 at 00:17 #

      I know me too .. it definitely doesn’t work on everyone but it suits her style and she’s not one to do much for Cannes anyway.

    Yay, Ditto on Queen and Princess of Cannes:) Many beautiful looks, but nobody really shut down the red carpet like Aishwarya, all she needed was one look, her also impressive red Ralph and Russo was more of a confirmation. Enough has been said about Elle, who’s done very delightfully, a flawless run.

    My personal “Most disappointing” was actually Sonam, considering my extra high expectations for her. She was my indisputable Queen of Cannes last year with her BDOTY worthy after BDOTY worthy moment in Ralph and Russo Couture. This year she didn’t have a spark and was rather bland, like she indeed wasn’t quite prepared or put enough thought into it. (Rihanna was doing whatever she was doing, I didn’t expect anything from her).

    For Eva – “Change the stylist and the mirror for the next year” award.

    Men didn’t give us much to judge, not even some inspiring stylish photocall look, where one could experiment a bit more.

    Oof. I hadn’t even seen Eva Longoria’s second look. No one person has worn that much illusion mesh since the figure skating event at the Winter Olympics.

    Great picks all around! The “Outstanding Service to the Color Black” and “Groundhog Day” awards were particularly inspired 🙂

      and when you look at Eva’s earrings in close-up,it seems someone is pouring water out of her ear.

      • Kathy June 3, 2017 at 06:47 #

        LOL you’re so right!

  15. Shifa June 2, 2017 at 20:07 #

    I agree with all of these. I’m surprised Fan Bingbong and Jessica Chastain didn’t make appearances more frequently. FC if you were to award them for their Cannes Style what would you have titled those? I also think Armani Prive was the most consistent couturier

    • Arina June 2, 2017 at 21:24 #

      Armani was my favourite couturier as well. Jessica made plenty of appearances and was overall best dressed in her Armani imo. I was expecting more of Fan Bingbing, though, too.

    • charlotte June 3, 2017 at 09:07 #

      Fan Bingbong???Girl you killed me,I laughed 5 minutes straight.
