Here are some photos from last night’s Cannes Film Festival premiere of Blood Ties, Guillaume Canet’s new English-only (?) film. The film stars Mila Kunis, Clive Owen, Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana and many more. Unfortunately, Mila Kunis did not come to Cannes, and I have NO idea why. I just saw some photos of Mila and Ashton in London, so it’s not like it would have been crazy travel time. Anyway, let’s start with Zoe Saldana in this Valentino gown. I feel like… this could have been more striking if only the designer had made some more interesting edits. I’m not flat-out opposed to the grey-blue fabric, I just think it would have looked prettier… maybe as a strapless ball gown? Those white straps make it seem like Zoe was wearing a shell underneath her gown.
Here’s Marion Cotillard in Dior. It’s just… ugh. Marion loves a mullet dress. She loves to wear ugly, unconventional pieces and style them in unusual ways. Is this the worst thing ever? No. It’s not. But it’s also disappointing because she’s so beautiful and I would love to see her dress impeccably. This dress looks sloppy (but the styling is fab).
Milla Jovovich (she’s not in the film) was there. She wore Chanel. Again, not the best but not the worst.
Aishwarya Rai in an intricate gown by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The beading and button-front feel very Indian to me, and it’s very beautiful. I would have styled it with her hair back, though. With the hair down, everything just seems so heavy.
Bonus Clive Owen! Mm.
