Catherine Deneuve

WORST DRESSED: CATHERINE DENEUVE

The Cannes film Festival red carpet attracts a huge assortment of fashion and it can’t ALL be fabulous. We love Catherine Deneuve, but we do NOT love her gown. The top is the worst. It makes her look like she has a very short neck and the sleeves make her look like she’s shrugging all the time. But the body of the unforgiving dress makes her look as sturdy and square as a refrigerator. And she seems SO uncomfortable! Something softer and looser would be far more flattering for this legendary beauty….

CATHERINE DENEUVE HAS NO PLANS TO RETIRE


Catherine Deneuve has always been one of the busiest (and best looking) actors in show business. (She was the Charlize Theron of her day) Since her first film in 1962 she’s been making several films every year adding up to hundreds- and she’s still LOVES to work. She just finished one movie, stopped at the Venice Film Festival to pick up her Lifetime Achievement Award, and now she’s off to Belgium to start on her next movie called Funny Birds. It’s an English language movie set in New Jersey, filming in, of all places, Belgium. Years ago, I ran into her at an LA flea market when we both reached for the same mid-century modern vase. I was shocked to look up and see who was next to me, and she was very talkative and friendly. (Neither of us bought the vase) It’s always fun to run into a huge movie star at a flea market!

CATHERINE DENEUVE SCORES AGAIN IN THE MIDWIFE

Anyone exhausted by the proliferation of summer action movies will probably enjoy the tranquility and social observations in the French movie The Midwife. It’s the story of two very opposite women thrown together by circumstances, who learn to appreciate one another. (Stories about women are always more introspective than those about men.) What a delight to see Catherine Deneuve as the free spirited self-indulgent ex-wife of Catherine Frot’s conservative character’s late father. We recall bumping into Catherine Deneuve a few years ago at the flea market in Hollywood. To say we were SHOCKED is an understatement. She looked beautiful (that skin!) and was happy and friendly as she browsed for amusing items to take back to friends in France. This wonderful film is not for those addicted to speed, but a treat for anyone interested in human behavior.

CATHERINE DENEUVE: HERE COMES THE JUDGE

137056PCN_StandingTall09cut

Catherine Deneuve is starring in the movie “La Tete Haute” or “Standing Tall” that OPENED the Cannes Film Festival this year, and it was directed by a woman. The story is based on ten years in the life of a disadvantaged juvenile in the French social system. Deneuve plays the non-glamorous role of a judge who is committed to mentoring the young fellow. We’re not crazy about Catherine’s outfit, but she still has that beautiful hair and skin.

SORRY MISS DENEUVE- YOU CAN’T SMOKE HERE!

French actress Catherine Deneuve still gets around – she attended Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway show during Fashion Week in Paris. Back in the 1970’s Catherine’s elegant ads for Chanel No. 5 made it hugely popular in the USA. She’s a longtime cigarette smoker and is irate about the increasing bans on smoking. We bet someone told her to put the cigarette out right after this photo was taken.
