School of frock: Cannes Film Festival edition
Week 2 of the Cannes Film Festival is done and dusted and we continue to be spoilt by the mother lode of red carpetry
BELLA HADID (B+)
Premiere of The Unknown Girl at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France
Gown: Alexandre Vauthier
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
File this under traffic-stopping. Gigi Hadid's younger sis takes no prisoners in a seriously sexy crimson silk wrap slip dress with a thigh slit cut up to there and a neckline plunging down to there. This could've easily veered into skanky territory, but she's got the perfect body and moody attitude to make it red hot.
KRISTEN STEWART (B-)
Premiere of Personal Shopper at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Call me crazy, but those white shredded tulle and lace sleeves are pretty damn fabulous. I'm even digging the unexpected red eyeshadow and mussed curls.
GWEN STEFANI (D+)
KIIS FM's Wango Tango 2016 in Los Angeles
Outfit: Not known
She's already snagged herself a rebound boyfriend in Blake Shelton, so why does post-divorce Stefani feel the urge to show us she's still got it at 46? This ghastly combination of dip-dyed hair, belly button-flaunting sheer top, army cargo capris and sparkly gold pumps should only be attempted by desperate 20-year-olds.
RILEY KEOUGH (D)
Premiere of American Honey at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France
I'd look just as miserable if my stylist forced me into something made out of crepe paper streamers in the colour of baby poo.
WHO WORE IT BETTER?
FX's For Your Consideration event for The People v. O.J. Simpson - American Crime Story in Los Angeles, April 4
NBC Universal 2016 Upfront Presentation in New York City, May 16
When you have two thin blondes in the exact same red Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini embroidered frock, it's the little things that make all the difference and produce extreme results. The lengths of Bell's ruffled sleeves and skirt hem are just right, and she injects a more breezy and relaxed vibe. In Paulson's case, the fit is off and the whole thing just feels heavy and dreary.
The whole thing about the Met (Gala) is you spend like three hours getting ready and then you get your photo taken, and then you go in and unstrap your girdle and eat your dinner.
