Cannes Film Festival 2011 – How to Wear Red on the Red Carpet

CANNES DO

CANNES DO

CANNES NOT

WHO: Rosario Dawson, Linda Cardellini  and a random guest.

WHAT: ‘This Must Be The Place’ and “Hara-Kiri-Death Of A Samurai” premieres

WHEN: May 19th 2011

WHERE: Cannes, France

DO…endeavour to keep it simple, dress to flatter your figure, wear a body shaper to smooth out your curves if you are wearing a form-fitting gown and always pick a gown with a flattering silhouette rather than opting to follow the latest trend(s).

DON’Tbe a slave to fashion by trying to hard to look like a fashionista, wear a statement gown matching with a statement purse, statement shoes and statement jewelry chances are you would be making too much of a statement.

Fashionwidget Verdict: Rosario and Linda A+, Random guest with star logo on her dress…F minus.

FASHIONWIDGET’S Verdict: When I started fashion blogging way back when (officially? March ’11 lol), my intent was to add my own opinion to the wonderful world of fashion as is happens around the world, in the nicest way possible with respected and appreciated help from all my contributors. Sadly, some fashion mavens just know how to bring out the worst kind of commentary in you.  I did not want it to get nasty but it seems this cannot be avoided. Okay so by now we know that far too many people dressed strangely to this particular movie premiere so we’re thinking that perhaps it has something to do with the film or maybe a theme was announced in the invitation notice, like “come stoned” or “dress to shock” I don’t know and my fellow fashion-bloggers don’t either. The jury is still hung over from previous deliberations pertaining to this same event.  Please feel free to leave your theories. In the meantime, it’s a FAIL from us. F minus if possible. 😦

Vittorio, you deserve some kind of award for capturing these snapshots.

Cannes Film Festival 2011 Best Dressed Day 9 – Fashion on the Red Carpet

Style

WHO: Bianca Suarez, Pedro, Almodovar, Antonio Banderas et. al.

WHAT: Cannes Film Festival 2011 – The Skin I Live in Premiere

WHEN: May 19th

WHERE: Cannes, France

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Lots to report on this morning, dear readers. With the big event that was the amFAR gala taking place last evening at Cannes, we have to admit that every other event was under-reported especially the traditional red carpet premieres. Antonio Banderas showed up sans Melanie Griffith to support Pedro Almodovar’s latest flick ‘The Skin I Live In’ as it premiered at Cannes. Divas who represented in the name of fashion included but were not limited to Marisa Paredes, Elena Anaya and Bianca Suarez. C+
