Smart ladies love fashion, Cannes 2015 May 19-24 red carpet round-up


And so it is our last day of Cannes fashion coverage and I am tired. [I also forgot to comment on this earlier. Sorry, world! -M]

Cate Blanchett

May 19, 2015

Boy do I love an origami bow. I also love 3/4 length sleeves and a deep V. Other awesome things about this dress are the gold jewelry and Cate’s badass red carpet stare. -K

This is one of the chic-est looks ever. Cate is everything. -M

Emily Blunt

May 19, 2015

So sparkly! So much BLING! I love the simplicity of the hair and make-up it really lets everything else SHINE! -K

This is not as good as her Calvin Klein look (and nothing could never be that good) but the sleeves make it stand out. -M

Laetitia Casta

May 24, 2015

Too much fringe? Or just the right amount of fringe? Her earrings are also fringey. This might be one of those weird dresses I don’t hate. Her face and hair are great. -K

The location where the bottom fringe begins is so AWKWARD. -M

Marion Cotillard

May 22, 2015

So I owned a bracelet similar to that in High School I bought for $9.99 at Claire’s. The dress is okay but looks a little snug at the top. Her hair was pulled back with sparkles in it. Her face is lovely. You know I have been through so much fashion that unless you are naked of blinged out I’m just bored. -K

She looks like Katy Perry in the face. I am disappointed with this–if you’re wearing a dress this simple, everything else should be perfect. Her hair, makeup and jewelry are all horrible. -M

May 23, 2015

I like this better but I think I might be fashioned-out. -K

I like it but I am not WOWED. I need to be WOWED at this point with Cannes fashion. -M

Essie Davis

May 23, 2015

Do you know whom I love Essie Davis from Miss Fisher’s Mystery’s (that and Dance Academy make me long for more Australian TV here in the states) I’m also so pleased that her normally fair hair is dyed black because that means she is filming SEASON 3! Her dress is a nice length but looks a little loose and wrinkled. -K

Her bangs make me want to weep. -M

Elizabeth Debicki

May 23, 2015


I wish the pattern was bugs (Katie also does) but I love it anyway. I ALWAYS have to look this woman up, but she’s Jordan in The Great Gatsby, which I have probably seen 200 times. D’oh. -M

Jane Fonda

May 20, 2015

Oh, Jane, NO! You do NOT work in a Saloon. -K

Who told her this was a good idea? I don’t even know anymore. -M

Mackenzie Foy

May 22, 2015

Not only did Mackenzie have a great photocall look but this is a lovely dress for the red carpet. Mackenzie you need to become BFFs with fashionista Kiernan Shipka.  -K

I always approve of dresses that resemble aluminum foil -M

Valeria Golino

May 24, 2015

I wish people would stop wearing this grey/taupe color. I feel like this is all the same. Her make-up is taupe too. I do like that gold detail in the tulle but wish it was on a different dress. -K

I want this to be a different color as well. Are chunky shoes in again? I highly doubt I will ever follow that trend. -M

Araya Hargate

May 19, 2015

My only criticism is that I think the earrings should have been studs but other than that this fucking rocks. -K


Zoe Kazan

May 20, 2015

This is very shiny. I thought her clutch was a mortar board and that this was a graduation pic. I’m kind of done with the crop top evening gown. -K

Her makeup is too harsh. She needs bangs, too. What is NOT harsh is Paul Dano, who I love deeply. -M

Sophie Marceau

May 20, 2015

I love the multi-colored sparkles. Sophie had a few missteps this year but I love how all of her looks have been so different from each other. -K

She at least tries. I applaud her stylist for finding such a diverse group of looks. -M

May 21, 2015

70’s AWESOME! -K

I LOVE THE 70s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -M

May 24, 2015

I wish she had ended her jury run on a higher note than this. -K

Her final look should have been kookier but this is lovely just the same. -M

Sienna Miller

May 23, 2015

I want that clutch. I also love that teal color paired with mauve. I think I would have absolutely loved this had it not had the red and black bow. Maybe a burgundy bow? -K

Sienna totally killed it at Cannes. Before this event, I could not have named three of her looks that I enjoyed. This is really darling and the clutch was an excellent choice. -M

May 24, 2015

Love the dress. On the fence regarding make-up and hair. -K

I’m not on the fence: the hair is fucking awful. -M

Natalie Portman

May 19, 2015

This dress is a jersey knit and has pockets. The color is also stellar. -K

She is so great at classic and simple. So gorgeous. -M

Aishwarya Rai

May 20, 2015

This might be too much dress. -K

Definitely too many ruffles. -M

Nikki Reed

May 20, 2015

Why would you put the hair over the embellishment? That is just dumb styling. -K

Hmmmm… I like the color. Her face needs lipstick. -M

John C. Reilly & Alison Dickey

May 24, 2015

John continues to be the dapperest of dapper dudes at the festival. His wife Alison also looks splendid. -K

If my husband and I walked the red carpet, this is what we would wear. -M

Michelle Rodriguez

May 24, 2015

The unfortunate issue with this dress is that her boobs showed up in every picture because of the lights. I bet this looked great in person. -K

I like the texture of the dress. Shame about those boobs. -M

Isabella Rossellini

May 19, 2015

This woman owned the red carpet for the entire event. -K

I want to be Isabella Rossellini when I grow up. -M

May 23, 2015

She must have one hell of a scarf/wrap/cape/coat closet. -K

I want those comfy, old lady-ish shoes. -M

Sarah Sutherland

May 22, 2015

I don’t know anymore what I hate and what I like. -K

Katie, we hate this. -M

Rokia Traore

May 24, 2015

Oh wait I love this! -K

Woah, this is incredibly beautiful. -M

Alicia Vikander

May 19, 2015

I hate this color. This dress is also weird. She is really pretty. -K

The fit is totally bizarre. And is that a white lining? Ugh. -M

May 23, 2015

I kind of love this. -K

So elegant. -M

Rachel Weisz

May 20, 2015

This is a really pretty color. AND she is wearing silk satin AND is it not wrinkled AND not too tight –WINS ALL AROUND! I also included this picture specifically because Paul Dano looks like he is up to something. -K

She is posing like she OWNS the carpet. -M

Li Yuchun

May 22, 2015

She would be totally owning this look if it weren’t for the unfortunate crotch wrinkles. -K

This is the saddest thing to end our Cannes coverage on. -M


  1. Kate B’s dress is amazing! Wonder how it would like in a color like red????
