Cannes! It is still not over! You probably saw Bella Hadid try to hold all of her parts together inside that tiny red dress yesterday, but did you know there were even more models, and non-models—but mostly models—wearing things? Let’s check ‘em out:
Barbara Palvin is sort of pulling this off, because she is a Victoria’s Secret model, but then again, it is not totally possible to pull this off, since it is literally a bunch of seatbelts artfully arranged over her boobs. I also really don’t love this Ralph & Russo gown Chanel Iman is wearing; it’s two very bad colors set against each other, the waist is too low and she looks uncomfortable. Whatever, it’s just the L’Oreal Paris Blue Obsession Party! Crystal Renn and Eli Mizrahi are seen here looking extremely intense and slightly bizarre, although I love Crystal’s low buns!
Cyril Chapuy, president of L’Oreal, can be seen posing on Getty with his head angling toward the boobs of nearly every model in attendance at the L’Oreal Paris Blue Obsession party; here he is with Irina Shayk, who has dressed to theme. Karlie Kloss manages to look okay in this weird Elie Saab, while model Lily Donaldson is in a revealing blue suit that feels very Cannes.
Jourdan Dunn looks awesome in this embroidered Ralph & Russo. As a side note, I find it a) interesting that every photographer in this photo is male, and b) shitty that they have to wear black tie just to jostle in that weird pit. Anyway!
Bella Hadid is a silver waterfall in Givenchy; Kim Kardashian and her extremely moisturized shoulders are looking frosty in this custom gown by Lan Yu Couture; Mischa Barton!! Hey!!! Riley Keough is sort of drowning in this Louis Vuitton/her hair, but it’s a cool dress.
Model Izabel Goulart looks floaty and comfortable in this Ralph & Russo nightgown dream. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is intensely underserved by this Dior contraption, which not only involves a ruffled orange diaper but also appears to feature a sploosh of matching orange directly on her right nipple. I absolutely love this dreamy textured Prada gown on model Natasha Poly, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks windswept and lovely in this Alexandre Vauthier.
And here is yet another model looking good: Eva Herzigova in simple, perfect Dior.
This Atelier Versace on Laetitia Casta is sort of appalling me by just how badly it appears to want to make its wearer look terrible. Soko is in this very cool dress by Gambia at a photo call, with matching greasy hair and consumptive eye makeup. Model Soo Joo Park looks great in this fraying patched gown, which is a sentence I never could have predicted.
Has anyone I’ve written about yet stood under 5'10, besides Kim Kardashian? Anyway, Karlie Kloss is back and wearing Louis Vuitton at the Julieta premiere; the whole Jackie O headband thing kind of works here. Liu Wen is looking lovely in a voluminous floral Giambattista Valli; Liya Kebede is edgy in a very, very high-cut Haider Ackermann.
Chloe Sevigny, Kristen Stewart, and Vanessa Paradis are all in Chanel; Kristen Stewart kind of looks like a sick bird, but in a good way!
And here are some shots from the the amfAR gala in Cannes:
Chanel Iman is giving us some mermaid-caught-in-a-very-nice-net realness in this pretty bias cut gown; Elle Fanning seems to be enjoying this boho Valentino feather look. As much as it pains me to praise a Marchesa dress, Katy Perry, in my opinion, looks gorgeous in this dramatic flamenco-inspired ensemble; Lily Donaldson kiiind of looks like if Santa’s workshop employed models but also still kind of looks amazing.
Karlie Kloss, again, in Marchesa; and again, have to admit that this is nice. I love an off-the-shoulder! Karolina Kurkova looks like a lil’ piece of cotton candy; Uma Thurman is going to prom; Vanessa Paradis, in Chanel, looks like the most fashion-forward member of a very relaxed French coven. That’s a compliment!
