This year’s International Cannes Film Festival has provided us with more gorgeous photos of gorgeous people in even more gorgeous clothing than we could wish for from a thousand Academy Awards red carpets combined. But just when we thought our daily updates from the South of France couldn’t get any better, it turned out that Cannes is a gift that won’t stop giving: Nestled nicely amongst all those lovely photographies was a majorly healthy dose of WTF.
Do we really need to explain what those three loaded little letters stand for? We’re talking the god-awful dresses no stylist would touch…The highlighted hair cape of an aging Hollywood hunk… The unexplained presence of a terrestrial mollusk… and so, so much more. So please, mes amis, join us for a little look back at all the amusing and confusing head-scratching situations and photos Cannes has had to offer us thus far– We promise you won’t be seeing any of these beauts in the typical best-dressed lists.
