I have been horribly disappointed with the dresses “gracing” the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Apart from the Atelier Versace looks (on Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly and Doutzen Kroes) killing it and Zoe Kravitz, who I’ll come back to later, everything has been so underwhelming to me. Just more of the same strapless, single colour, boring dresses leaving me uninspired, especially after all the incredible show-stopping pieces at the Met Gala.
It really has been a fashion travesty. I hope it only gets better from here on out as we have really hit the bottom of the barrel…and we are scraping.
I’ve decided not to include the Atelier Versace looks in this post, purely because I’ve been harping on about Versace a lot recently, so I’ll give you guys a break. Though if you share my love for the eponymous Italian brand, its incredible legacy and its sassy front woman then here are some Versace-related posts for you.
Cannes Film Festival 2015: Best & Worst Dressed
So, leaving the Versace to one side, the only other dress worth mentioning (for good reasons) at Cannes this year is the Valentino one that Zoe Kravitz wore.
It was feminine, and beautiful and young and her hair looked amazing with this gown. Although there were lots of cut outs and flesh exposure, it still managed to be very innocent, a tad demure, even – Valentino done well.
On the flip side, Charlize Theron, the goddess herself, wore a Valentino dress which seemed to struggle with its identity so much that not even Charlize’s beauty couldn’t save her from this one. The bottom half of this dress says “cattle ranch”, whist the top half says “Italian funeral”. It makes me really upset.
I’ve been obsessed with these Givenchy boots that Cheryl is wearing, but here they have been paired terribly like some sort of evil joke done by an incompetent clothing matchmaker. Ok, ok, this wasn’t a red carpet look (thank God), but I felt as though I had to mention it. That dress isn’t meant to hide a pair of over the knee boots, and those (glorious) shoes aren’t meant to disappear under a dress like that. No.
Let me know if you agree with my choices of best and worst dressed at Cannes (so far) this year, or if there were any others which left you questioning how the celebrities didn’t object when their stylist proposed these choices or any other looks you thought killed it.
