Cannes Film Festival

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME

Okay, ENOUGH is ENOUGH! Even for me, a lifetime fashion victim, this whole “My dress is bigger than yours” idea has gotten out of hand. It’s actually disgusting. It looks like women at the Cannes Film Festival are trying to out-do the over-dressed women at the Met Gala, and succeeding. When you think about all the labor hours and fabric that goes in to making these flamboyant gowns with long trains that are worn ONCE, it is appalling! And overindulgent.

A RARE FIND AT CANNES: A HANDSOME MAN!

The Cannes Film Festival red carpets are always loaded with gorgeous models and actresses dressed extravagantly, but there is very little eye candy for women or gay men. 6’2” Australian model Jordan Barrett adds considerable interest in his white suit, but the festival is invariably geared to please men…

TAKE MY PICTURE, PLEASE!

There’s ONE publicity hungry oddball on every important red carpet! Russian TV personality Elena Lenina makes it a habit to show up at the Cannes Film Festival every year in a crazier look than she had last year! Sometimes she has outrageously big hair and sometimes it’s her whole outfit. The Oscars used to have a B actress that turned up on the red carpet every year in a hideously sexy outfit. Usually she was turned away at the door (after being photographed nonstop) but with all their security, one wonders how she got THAT far. We’re not sure how Elena gets invited to Cannes events each year – she must have friends in high places.

EVEN BELLA HADID WAS WARNED: NO SELFIES ON THE RED CARPET AT CANNES!

The models always seem to out-do the actresses on the red carpet at the opening ceremony for the Cannes Film festival. Bella Hadid’s dress had a long train and following her up the stairs was a man scooting around, arranging the long train on the floor behind her for maximum effect. Probably hired by the designer of the gown. Whether Bella actually has anything to do with the festival is unknown, but she livened up the event for the paparazzi, and her designer will no doubt get a lot of publicity. The antiquated dress code on the red carpet has loosened slightly, but this year everyone invited was sternly warned NOT to take red carpet selfies – or they could be banned from screenings.

IS THE PARTY OVER FOR HOT FELON JEREMY MEEKS?

Jeremy Meeks, 35, turned up at the Cannes Film Festival dressed to kill – but significantly WITHOUT his fiancée, heiress Chloe Green. Chloe and Jeremy got together in 2017 and had a son Jayden a year ago. The family was often seen together lounging on Chloe’s father’s 109 foot yacht in various desirable locales. Jeremy, a Crip turned runway model, regularly appears in designer Philipp Plein’s shows and is scheduled for one during the Cannes Film Festival. He’s pictured here with another Plein model, but no Chloe. In fact, Jeremy and Chloe haven’t been seen in public for a number of weeks… could this Cinderfella romance be over?

ASIA ARGENTO TO CANNES PREDATORS: YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE

Asia Argento’s stunning prediction at the Cannes Film Festival has already proved to be RIGHT. Actress/director Argento delivered a fierce and detailed speech about her abusive experience with Harvey Weinstein when she took the stage to present an award on the last night of the festival. She ominously concluded her talk with a warning that “even tonight there are predators sitting among you that need to be held responsible for their conduct – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.” Today one of France’s biggest directors, Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) was accused of drugging and raping an actress in a Paris hotel this week.

FINALLY – A REASON TO LIKE KRISTEN STEWART!

It’s not about the hair- it’s about her FEET! Kristen Stewart, who always seems so disinterested in everything, surprised us by stepping up to the plate for women’s rights in Cannes! Back in 2015 women were appalled when they were BANNED from the red carpet for WEARING FLAT SHOES! The incident made the whole festival look archaic and insulting to women. This year Kristen tested the waters and went barefoot and carried her shoes on one carpet and last night she defiantly WORE FLAT SHOES. She said “If men don’t have to wear heels, why should WE? She wants equal rights. Nobody asked her to leave.

LA TOYA JACKSON: BLACK LEATHER IS NOT ALWAYS YOUR FRIEND

La Toya Jackson surprised Cannes filmgoers by showing up for the premier of a South Korean dramatic movie in competition called Burning. She happily posed with people involved with the movie (she’s not) in a black leather gown (!) with a long train that needed constant adjustment. A woman followed her on the red carpet on her knees, spreading it out. We can’t help but notice that perhaps the skirt slit was too high for the petite La Toya because apparently the top five inches were hastily sewn together in an amateur manner. But she still manages to look quite pretty.

AMBER HEARD : THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE ARE NOT ALWAYS FREE

Amber Heard, 32, still managed to look beautiful in spite of the monumentally unflattering gown she wore on the red carpet in Cannes. Presumably when she sees her photos she’ll realize that sometimes it’s better to buy your own dress than wear something just because it was a freebie. Amber has split from Elon Musk again, but she was already seen in the back seat of a limo with Heidi Klum’s ex-boyfriend Vito Schnabel, so life goes on…

ROMAN POLANSKI IN HIS UNDERPANTS

Roman Polanski may be 83, but that doesn’t stop him from sunbathing at the Eden Roc Hotel in Cannes in his underwear. The Film Festival is as close as Polanski can get to Hollywood – he’s been unable to return to the US since he was arrested for sexually assaulting a 13 year old girl in 1977. (And he’s NOT happy about it.) At that time he fled to France to avoid prison time but he had no idea he’s never be able to return because he figured, as a successful filmmaker, he was above the law. He still avoids countries likely to extradite him to the US. No great loss for us – his best work was Rosemary’s Baby in 1968.
