Jurors Protest At The ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kirsten Stewart, Lea Seydoux, Khadja Nin, Ava DuVernay and Cate Blanchett walked the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival at the screening of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12) during Cannes Film Festival.

Only 82 films in competition in the official selection have been directed by women since the inception of the Cannes Film Festival whereas 1,645 films in the past 71 years have been directed by men.

Kristen Stewart: The actress wore classic Chanel suit, styled with rebel Roberi & Fraud retro-inspired shades.

Lea Seydoux: Her custom Louis Vuitton gown from the Fall 2018 collection is stunning. I love how it defines her gorgeous figure, and how the ruffled detailing gives the look an interesting dimension.

Khadja Nin: This navy gown was given plenty of African flare with her signature head scarf and sash combo.

Ava DuVernay: I had hoped to see more of Ava at Cannes, but her third outing didn’t disappoint Alberta Ferretti.

Cate Blanchett: The Australian actress wore her second Armani Prive look of the festival. The sensual fabrication was only enhanced by the asymmetrical cut, sculptural hip detail and figure forming fit. Chopard jewels completed her look.

    Cate’s look is simply flawless! The fit is impeccable while the styling is absolutely perfect! For the perfect execution of this simple yet classic look I think it deserves a place in the BDOTY list.

    Khadja and Cate are my favourites.

    Leas fit is amazing. I wish I could see these looks on their own. I think Lea looks great….in LV.
    Cate looks great too. Pretty elegant dress.

    I like all of these looks except for Kristen’s. Cate and Khadja have the most amazing presence.

    That’s a pretty dope lineup.
    I like Kristen’s beauty look but the undone jacket is not doing it for me.
    Léa looks elegant and classic so does Cate.
    Love the golden accents on Ava.
    Khadja is consistent.

    The eye is immediately drawn to Cate in the group – such is her commanding presence even in an LBD. The earrings were definitely worth a close up.

    Kristen looks like she’s wearing pajamas that are about two sizes too big. Cate looks sublime.

    In love with Lea’s look, it’s my favourite from her thus far. Kristen is too cool for school as always and Cate looks regal, would be interested to see that dress in another colour, like emerald green maybe. Khadja always looks so commanding, I love the wraps she’s been wearing. Good for them for protesting, it would be good to start implementing more film programs targeted specifically for girls from the high school or even grade school level, foster the interest and opportunities as early as possible.

    Agree. She looks out of place and I simple don’t care for the suit. Why hasn’t she had anything custom?

  10. Evita May 12, 2018 at 6:35 pm #

    They honestly all look great. Love Lea’s look, really like Cate’s look and for me this might be the first time these Roberi and Fraud type glasses Kristen is wearing are working on a red carpet setting. And a great message.

    Kinda confused as to how this is a protest, but whatever, Cate looks fantastic.

  12. Ays May 12, 2018 at 6:23 pm #

    82 women in total were there (To represent 82 female directors), while Cate was giving a speech. Madame president does not disappoint and she looks incredible.

  13. Leandra May 12, 2018 at 6:14 pm #

    Lord Almighty, look at Cate. Her charisma, her aura is such as she almost “deletes” the others (with due respect to the actresses), The “undone” hair, the gorgeous earrings, the magnificence of the posing, I’m completely floored.

      +2 she has such a star presence. Old Hollywood.

  14. justme May 12, 2018 at 6:12 pm #

    That means less than 5% of the movies selected for the festival since its creation have been directed by a woman? That is plain shameful.

    On a more superficial note, this might be Léa’s best Cannes 2018 look.

  15. DEDEL May 12, 2018 at 6:11 pm #

    Cate … I mean … Pure elegence, the fit is on point. Nothing to say except WOW.

  16. JHH May 12, 2018 at 6:03 pm #

    Other than Kristen, I like all the looks here, but Khadja and Cate are especially good IMO.

    • CreoleLady May 12, 2018 at 9:01 pm #

    Lea and Cate are simply, but so statuesque. Perfect.

  18. Messi May 12, 2018 at 5:58 pm #

    Cate was all up fo solidarity until she needed her red carpet moment. Seem hypocrityal to me

    • JHH May 12, 2018 at 6:04 pm #

      Please explain.

    • DEDEL May 12, 2018 at 6:10 pm #

      Perhaps becaise she was told to do so by her agent ? This is part of her job as an actress and as a president of the festival.

  19. Chris May 12, 2018 at 5:47 pm #

    I love Lea’s look!! Makes me excited for more. Cate looks gorgeous as well.

  20. Alina May 12, 2018 at 5:40 pm #

    Kristen’s look is the only one I don’t like here. The rest of the ladies look amazing.
