Smart ladies love fashion, Cannes 2015 May 13-18 photocalls and parties round-up

| 1 Comment

Cannes has so much fashion that I split it into 4 posts (plus yesterday’s amfAR post), today we are focusing on photocalls and parties for the first half of the festival.

Camila Alves

May 17, 2015

Casual wear is not Camila’s thing. The scarf is too much–even a fringed vest would be better. -M

Even her hair and face are great. -K

Cate Blanchett

May 17, 2015

Cate can do IT ALL, including romantic. -M

As usual Cate is perfection. I really love this shade of pink and her lipstick. -K

May 17, 2015

This is so chic I can’t stand it. -M

No see ladies this is how you make black look great for the beach/riviera. -K

Fan Bingbing

May 18, 2015

I enjoy this modern doily but those shoes look incredibly uncomfortable. -M

I love the dress and I understand why she wears those platform shoes (as I to am short) but they are terrible and I agree with Melissa probably hella uncomfortable. -K

Emily Blunt

May 18, 2015

Complete perfection. -M

This is so amazing. Emily is also doing the minimal make-up perfectly as in she is still wearing lipstick in a lovely natural shade but it does NOT look like she isn’t wearing lipstick. -K

Catherine Deneuve

May 13, 2015

I do not like what this is doing to her shape. Also that witchy skirt belongs to someone else. Someone more goth. -M

This ages her and that makes me sad. -K

Jane Fonda

May 17, 2015

I am not the biggest fan of this hairdo she insists on wearing all the time but I love that she mixed silver with black. -M

I too wish Jane would change her hair but that dress is fabulous. -K

Salma Hayek

May 14, 2015

This fits her beautifully but I feel it’s a bit too conservative. -M

She looks really great in red. The shoes are way too heavy for this event. -K

May 15, 2015

Agggg, those shoes. Otherwise, this is a lovely look. -M

Yeah these shoes are the worst. That fabric is so lovely. -K

May 16, 2015

Too tight and it is pulling in weird places. She’s also trying to distract us from the fit with that too-big clutch. -M

This would be great at a half size bigger. -K

May 16, 2015

Salma is totally working 70s pussy bow realness. LOVE. -M

I don’t love this as much as Melisa BUT I do think this is her most put together casual looks. -K

May 17, 2015

WTF is that bag? If she is making a documentary on one woman’s magical trip to Cannes with a full closet of clothes and a kooky entourage, and bag that holds her camera, fine. If not, get a purse that can’t fit diapers. -M

The shoes are perfect for the location and red looks nice on her those are the only nice things I can say. -K

May 17, 2015

Ohhhh I love this Grace Kelly-esque look. Fabulous hair, too! -M

This is fabulous. I love it. -K

Mindy Kaling

May 18, 2015

Why don’t I own this? Great shoes, too! -M

I TOO WANT THIS! I also love the shoes. -K

May 18, 2015

I want this one as well. I want her to do something else with her hair. -M

I love this too! GO MINDY! -K

Sonam Kapoor

May 18, 2015

Wow this is bananas and wonderful and I love every inch of it. -M

Sonam is one of my festival faves. Look how great her face is. -K

Zoe Kravitz

May 15, 2015

I really like graphic dresses like this but I always think something is missing with her to make me on board 100% with her looks. Is it the lack of lipstick? The pouts? -M

I love this dress I just wish it wasn’t a sweater. -K

Diane Kruger

May 16, 2015

This is so freaking adorable in every way. Shout out to new boyfriend Matthias Schoenaerts who played a super foxy farmer in Far From the Maddening Crowd. These two are in a movie, Maryland, directed by a woman (Alice Winocour). So excited to see it! -M

This is my favorite photocall look –SO CLASSY! -K

May 18, 2015

I really like this and I wish this was lit better. Hilarious story: I was going to write about that weird spot on her forehead–it looks like blood!!–until I realized it was fuzz on my screen. -M

This sadly was the best picture I could get of this look. I love the star detail. -K

Melanie Laurent

May 18, 2015

She’s so pretty and this really suits her but I wish her hair was slicker, to go with the dress. -M

I love her minimalist look but I agree with Melissa I wish she would do something with her hair. -K

Virginie Ledoyen

May 18, 2015

Me and Mindy Kailing both wish we owned this little number. -M

This is my second fave photocall look of Cannes 2015. I am a sucker for a cute chapeau. -K

Eva Longoria

May 14, 2015

Wow, she is 2/2 so far! I would think this boring on THE KRUG but it fits Eva’s existing style–just a bit more sleek than what she normally wears. -M

I love this silver gown so so much. Good job EVA! -K

Rooney Mara

May 17, 2015

I would hate this on everyone except her or THE KRUG. -M

I love the ruffles they seem so riviera appropriate. -K

May 17, 2015

I like that her hair is half down. I am really drawn to this, especially the extra-long sleeves. -M

This is both heavy and light at the same time it’s like her hair. She also does minimalist make-up well. -K

Sophie Marceau

May 13, 2015

I’m so excited to comment on this before Katie because I get to call this a depressing sack with feathers glued on by a toddler. -M

Sophie’s hair and face look nice but Melissa is dead on on the dress. -K

May 17, 2015

This is also not Sophie’s look. I’ll bet she looks great in jeans and a leather jacket. -M

Again her face and hair are great but this outfit looks a little business casual. -K

Sienna Miller

May 13, 2015

The mix of fabrics is really interesting but I wish it was slightly shorter. -M

I really love her hair but I also wish the length was different. -K

May 14, 2015

Adorable! I hate that lipcolor, though, she looks sickly. -M

This is when minimalist make-up goes wrong. Her lips look dead. -K

May 18, 2015

I like this on her! It almost veers into neglige territory but her shoes and clean face save it. -M

And here she gets the make-up right. -K

Julianne Moore

May 15, 2015

This ages her A LOT. -M

This is a bad look. Look how cute Zoe looks with a smile on her face. -K

Angeliki Papoulia

May 15, 2015

Are these shoes for opening beer bottles? I HOPE SO. Of course I love this dress and her hair is super cute. -M

I love these shoes and I want them. I also love the dress. -K

Amy Poehler

May 18, 2015

I am confused by the haircolor and this dress is so matronly on her. To me, she looks best in fun patterns like Rashida Jones. -M

I just want to jump into the photo and put a belt on her. -K

May 18, 2015

This is not the kind of pattern I was thinking about, but I actually like the length on her. Show off those gorgeous gams, lady! -M

See a belt makes shit better. Well it’s better that the look before it. -K

Natalie Portman

May 17, 2015

Who is this depressed figure skater not wearing any makeup? -M

This reminds me of a lot of Johnny Weir’s skating outfits. He loved feather fringe. -K

Parker Posey

May 15, 2015

Chic as fuck. I would want to dress like this when I visit the riviera. -M


May 16, 2015


This nonsense is FANTASTIC! -K

Aishwarya Rai

May 16, 2015

More 70s realness. I would wear this in a heartbeat. Her makeup is perfection. -M

This is so pretty on her. These are definitely her colors. -K

Noomi Rapace

May 15, 2015

Is it cold enough in southern France in May to wear a muppet coat? -M

I’m so glad her hair is no longer blond. -K

May 17, 2015

ANOTHER unnecessary coat! She must be cold all the time. -M

If this were fall in NYC I would freakin LOVE THIS. -K

John C. Reilly

May 14, 2015

How dashing! And what a great tie! -M

Best dressed dude at Cannes. -K

May 15, 2015

Can ALL men start dressing like this? -M

It’s so flipping dapper, I can’t stand it. -K

Michelle Rodriguez

May 14, 2015

This probably looked better in person but she does simple really well. -M

This fit is great and it shows of the jewels. -K

Alba Rohrwacher

May 14, 2014

I have never heard of her before but I looked her up and 1) she’s in a movie with Adam Drive, 2) she is about my age and 3) she is a style icon, which I could have told you right after seeing this adorable uterus dress. (Jezebel didn’t even mention that the embroidery looks like a uterus. What is wrong with people?) -M

I want her hair STAT!. I also love he dress and the leather booties even if it’s not quite riviera. -K

Isabella Rossellini

May 14, 2015

Cannes is her pulpit, dahhhhhlink. -M

Isabella wore, coats, capes, and scarfs the entire festival she is a queen. I seriously want to own this. -K

Lea Seydoux

May 15, 2015

This looks like something I would design for myself. EXCELLENT shoe choice! -M

I like this but also find the top bows a little fussy. I want the shoes. -K

Emma Stone

May 15, 2015

I need something else from her at this point. Not black lace, either. -M

I hated this. It also kept flying up. She looked ridiculous for the riviera. -K

Charlize Theron

May 14, 2015

This fit of this dress is so weird and the scarf doesn’t help. Her hair and makeup are divine and wasted on this weird dress. -M

It’s too tight in the bust and too loose at the bottom. It also looks heavy as fuck. Her face is nice. -K

Uma Thurman

May 18, 2015

I could not be any less interested. -M

I wish I could see the earrings? Next time you wear those put your hair up. -K

Naomi Watts

May 13, 2015

I like the pattern and length of this on her. Naomi is always one of my favorites. -M

I love this cocktail dress and I especially love it with those shoes. -K

May 15, 2015

I don’t know if she is absolutely pulling off the leather-jacket-over-a-formal-dress look. -M

I like the leather with the dainty dress. -K

May 15, 2015

Nice, but not exciting. I like the crazy hair. -M

Naomi LOVES that snake necklace. -K

May 16, 2015

Shoes that are a color! Way to go! -M

Great shoes for that great riviera appropriate dress. -K

Rachel Weisz

May 15, 2015

I really like this, especially the neckline, but the cutout is adding nothing to the look. Stop with the cutouts, designers. -M

I too think cutouts need to go but I think it works here because it’s small and if it weren’t there I think the jumpsuit would be too heavy. Her face and hair are perfection. -K

May 17, 2015

I love the strong 70s vibe of some of these looks. This is (I think) cut on the bias, which I don’t care for as much as the fun sleeves. -M

I love this pattern and the fit is great. -K

May 18, 2015

I never thought that she could do the whole Calvin Klein minimalism but she’s pulling it off well! (Not as expertly as Emily Blunt, though). -M

I like this but I think the make-up kind of washes out her pretty face. That is a great color on her. -K
