The Cannes Film Festival is a grand hub of menswear suits and tuxedos. James Franco has certainly been one of the best, wearing well-cut suits along with his trademark smile.
The Art of Elysium, Rabbit Bandini and Leon Max event for Ahna O’Reilly: Supporting his co-star Ahna O’Reilly, James stepped out in a blue notch-lapel Gucci suit. Usually fastening both jacket buttons is a no-no, but James did it multiple times and still got the slimming effect of one button. Along with the suit, he paired a white shirt with a matching blue tie. He also wore black shoes and aviators. I would have preferred brown shoes with such a light suit, but the black looks good.
As I Lay Dying photocall: The second look came on Monday during the photocall before the film ‘As I Lay Dying’, which he both directed and starred in. For this he opted for a well-tailored black Gucci suit with notch lapels. He finished it off with a white shirt and a navy tie. The messy hairdo looks great too.
As I Lay Dying premiere: On Monday night, James went fully formal in an amazing-looking black three-piece Gucci tux with peak lapels. The dapper look was finished off traditionally with a white shirt and black bow tie. This was the best fit of the three.
I was pleasantly surprised by his three looks. Each of them fit perfectly and he kept them simple, even with a lighter-blue suit. Of the three, I think my favorite is the first look: the blue suit. It was a great colour for the event.
