Fugger: Zhang Ziyi
*And yes, we have pictures of the inside of the party coming up. I would never deny you Wills and Benedict Cumberbatch chatting in front of a giant portrait. NEVER.
Usually, an outfit is felled by its LACK of pants:
But this one, unfortunately, has fallen victim to supreme overconfidence in them. She is a beautiful, ageless lady, and those pants are at least sixty-five and well on their way to collecting Social Security. And if the Everest-size pleats haven’t completely ruined this for you, then the stripper platforms can bat clean-up.
Remember that insane story that alleged Zhang Ziyi here was a (very very high-class) prostitute for the Communist party? She sued for defamation; the journalist in question declined to name sources (not the least because someone speaking out about prostitutes hired by Communist bigwigs in China is going to have big trouble with said bigwigs if unmasked), there was much legal wrangling? Well, everyone just settled. So no wonder she looks so very happy:
The dress doesn’t hurt.
If you’re wondering if I EVER accept a nude shoe, the answer is yes. It DOES happen. And here is one such time.
Now, maybe I’m nuts, but: They’re a nice shape, they don’t have heavy platforms, they’re not an UGLY shade of nude, and they’re coming right near them hem of a busy skirt. Red shoes would be too cutesy; black shoes possibly too heavy. White shoes, perhaps too glaring? The nude ones wash over me and then take my eye right back to where it should go: the rest of the outfit. And she looks so GREAT in it, and so cheery, and stylish in an unusual but effective eway, and MY GOD can we discuss how much WORK it must take to get a waist-to-knee region to do whatever Maria Menounos’s is doing? Sweet sandwich blaster.
… Mmm, sandwich.
Which is why I don’t look like that.
but it turns out she was, and just may not have done the red carpet. I’ve decided this is because she’s been holed up all day in a darkened room watching every Cannes movie and flossing popcorn out of her teeth.
