Original indie queen Parker Posey basically wrote the book on quirky, under-the-radar celebrity style and she's recently entered a delightful new phase: old Hollywood glamour in vintage-looking fabrics with matching wide headbands. Case in point: the Cannes Film Festival

She took her red carpet dressing strategy to new heights on Wednesday night at the screening of her new film "Irrational Man," directed by Woody Allen. In a Grecian-style silk chiffon lamé dress designed by Electric Feathers, she made sure every detail was in sync. Gold strappy sandals? Check. Gold metal clutch? Check. Gold nail polish? Check. And finally, the most fantastic accessory of all, the wide silk lamé headband, also designed by Electric Feathers. 

Posey's style and attitude were reminiscent of an older era, when red carpets weren't commercial enterprises and starlets were glamorous women who would consider nothing less than head-to-toe gold lamé for even just a film screening. And yet, there was nothing anachronistic about it.

Posey's turban appeared to misbehave at one point, prompting actress Laverne Cox to come to rescue, proving that her hairstyling skills aren't just for show on "Orange is the New Black." Even while getting fixed up, Posey looked like a shiny gilded beacon that should always be the center of attention.
