The Cannes film festival kicked off yesterday, and though we’re still basking in the glow of Chanel’s breezy resort show, real life movie stars have moved up the coast of France, where Diane Kruger has some competition.
Cate Blanchett‘s there to premiere Robin Hood, she always aces the red carpet, and Alexander McQueen can do no wrong. So if the latter really did handpick this dress for the former, no wonder it’s perfect. The black and silver gown technically stemmed from his pre-fall collection, and it featured an eagle sweeping across the bodice.
Salma Hayek, however, donned Gucci’s first “couture” creation. Even putting aside the technicalities involved with the word ‘couture,’ we’re disappointed. Frida Giannini might not be the most avant-garde designer out there, but this burgundy asymmetrical dress is just boring.
Though Salma Hayek does have a knack for making the simplest dresses look glamourous, this doesn’t exactly incite rousing excitement about Gucci’s foray into couture.
