Celebrity Style. 61st Annual Cannes Film Festival Looks.

May 15, 2008 • Celebrity Style

The Cannes Film Festival displays more than just one kind of art– the fashion is always incredible! Here are a few looks we are loving at SCS.

Cate Blanchett at the Blindness Premiere

Blanchett has totally mastered her ethereal look, and she proves that here. Despite its ruffled and layered organza, she carries this Armani Prive gown without it  looking frilly or silly. She also took a chance with her hairstyle, seen below.

With a gown as formal as this, straying from the classic with the hair can be a disaster, but Blanchett’s distinct ‘do works for her. Beautiful!

Natalie Portman at the Blindness Premiere
Portman sports a brightly-hued Lanvin bustier dress, with volume that threatens to swallow her up, but she manages to pull it off. Unlike Blanchett and Julianne Moore, Portman chose a bold color and paired it with bold make-up.


Now, that’s the smoky eye done right. While she steered away from the pale beauty of Blanchett, she wore a similar hairstyle. We’re digging this tousled evening ‘do popping up at Cannes.

Mischa Barton at the Blindness Premiere


Though we aren’t always sold on this young woman’s style, she gets it right here. Here’s an example of another ruffled gown appearing at Cannes, this time in dark indigo and by Alberta Ferretti. We like the dark eye and manicure, the nude lip, and the clutch… but here is hair done wrong.


This particular tousled, side-swept ‘do distracts from the upper elements of the dress, and from that gorgeous necklace. Barton needs to get her California-girl hair up and out of her face!

We’re looking forward to more Cannes style at SCS… we’re sure for all this good, there’ll be some bad, too!
