Cannes Fugs and Fabs: Closing Ceremony


Oh, Cannes. You feel interminable while you’re happening, but then when you end, I miss you. Just like Smash.

Cannes Fugs and Fabs: Marion Cotillard


Remember that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry was dating that girl who looked amazing in one light and hideous in the next? So half the time he was delighted and the other half he was horrified? That’s kind of how I feel about the rest of Marion’s Cannes wardrobe — sometimes about the same outfit at the same time. It’s personally confusing.

Cannes Final Fugs and Fabs: Nicole Kidman


It’s easy to forget that Kidman’s taste has always been interesting, because she’s had more misses than hits. Cannes was very, very good to her. But she did finally pull out something that made me feel a strange combination of confusion, a sense that the world order had been restored.

Cannes: The Lightbox Purge


Cannes is STILL GOING ON, and it doesn’t end until Sunday, so before the big closing weekend it’s time for a quick sweep of the things that slipped through the cracks. First up: Nicole Kidman wearing the Valentino that Anne Hathaway rejected for the Oscars for reasons of ridiculousness (edit: Valentino says it’s not the same, but what’s funny is that it looks more like Seyfried’s dress to me than the actual rejected one). You can bleach your hair, Anne, but you can’t bleach your regrets (edit: I still stand by this).

Cannes Fugs and Fabs: The amfAR Gala


I was all het up about Cannes juror Nicole Kidman not being at this (or at that may other things), 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.
