Cannes you handle the red carpet realness that’s going on in the South of France right now?
I haven’t done a Throwback Thursday here in quite a while, and what better occasion to revive it than CANNES TIME? Yes, it’s that time of year again — where both American and foreign A-listers gather in the south of France to
celebrate film be photographed in expensive borrowed gowns for all of us to judge. But because the festival kicked off just yesterday, I wanted to wait a bit before we discussed this year’s red carpet so I thought I’d compromise and talk about the best of the Cannes red carpet from years past (as well as the not-so-great, the…interesting, and the Diane Kruger — a category of its own).
Because Cannes is the red carpet that never ends (but it finally ended last week) it’s time to round up the final looks of the film festival, including the closing ceremonies and the amfAR gala. Besides the Oscars and the Met Ball of course, this is one my favorite red carpet events. The fact that it’s in France definitely brings out more fashion (maybe we should have the Oscars in Paris next year)…and I appreciate any red carpet that’s not full of sparkly strapless gowns. You know how those thrill me.
Be sure to check out part 1 (which includes Julianne Moore’s toe scandal) and now, let’s move on to part 2.

Cannes is like the Oscars’ cool older [French] sister. Celebrities gather to celebrate great films, but really they just want to out-do each other in the best borrowed gowns they can find.
Now I don’t think anyone can top Diane Kruger from last year; she just killed it one look after the next. BUT I have high hopes for this year. Let’s see who’s wearing what…
