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?
