Kendall Jenner in Calvin Klein at the Cannes amfAR gala: glam or garish?

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner looked incredible at the Cannes amFAR gala. Unlike her recent peekaboo disaster dress, Kendall did well in a Calvin Klein gown. This partnership may be mutually beneficial after all. Kendall’s purple dress was one of my favorites of the evening. The top is so simple, almost like a swimsuit. The skirt is full and flouncy. Kendall had a grand time waving her gown around for the cameras. The only problem I have with this look is how her hair looks stringy. She needs to pull it back out of her face.

Harvey Weinstein called Rita Oraa breathtaking actress,” and here she is wearing Marchesa. Is this dress supposed to look like a rose? So much peplum, so much tacky awfulness. Rita made matters worse by blowing kisses on the grey carpet.

Irina Shayk wore an Atelier Versace gown in emerald-green. This was a daring gown with potential for a wardrobe malfunction, but she has the body to pull off all the sheer paneling. Can you believe Bradley Cooper is dating her?

Michelle Rodriguez has been wearing lots of monochromatic sheath dresses lately, but she went for something different. This shiny Romona Keveza gown is absolutely gorgeous on Michelle. The color looks a little valentine-y, but the dress was perfectly tailored. The Chopard diamond necklace is amazing.

Melissa George wore a flouncy Schiaparelli couture gown made of tulle. I think she was going for drama and ended up with a cutesy dress. The giant bustle was overkill, and the embellishments looked like funfetti.

Mary J. Blige wore an off-white Versace column gown, which was covered in Swarovski crystals. This dress seemed dated, and the bright yellow nails didn’t enhance its appeal.

Izabel Goulart wore a color-blocked, bodycon gown and a statement necklace. She managed to do too much and not enough at the same time.

    I thought Kendall’s dress was boring. She has a pretty face but just such a boring body. However, her hair was the worst part of it. I thought Izabel Goulart looked the best, though I have no idea who she is.

    • Greek chic says:

      She’s a model.
      I follow her on Instagram for fitspro,she has a great body.

    • Rachel says:

      What exactly does “a boring body” look like? I’m so confused.

      • Allie says:

        @Rachel There is no “va va voom” factor to Kendall. I don’t find her model material just because she’s skinny.

      • Greek chic says:

        To be fair her face is more boring than her body.

      • Kath says:

        I’m a fan of the lack of “va va voom”. So sick of seeing women’s boobs and arses hanging out of every dress. I like the fact that Kendall looks lean and athletic – not like a blow-up doll like the rest of her family.

    • LVN says:

      Kyle is beautiful, the dress was ok, that’s all.

  2. Momoko says:

    Michelle’s dress, WOW! Any girl no matter how tom boyish..would love that dress. Kendall’s dress was meh, nothing spectacular, though I love the skirt.

    • Jan Harf says:

      Michelle looks drop dead gorgeous! Her styling is perfection.

    • Sabrine says:

      I love the dress Michelle is wearing, stunning. Kendall has looked better. The ones wearing beautiful dresses with ugly tats – why even bother showing up. The tats cheapen the dresses and ruin everything.

  3. Skyblue says:

    Kendall looks lovely in that purple dress but all I can “see” is Kim trying to wear it.

    • whipmyhair says:


    • StormsMama says:

      All I EVER “see” in Kendull is her mom Kris Jenner. It’s creepy.

      • Anare says:

        Kendall looks just like her mother! I think she is beautiful. She has a lovely figure for modeling not too curvy, long and lean, nice shoulders. What some are calling her “boring” looks is what she will cash in on. She can model anything from young looks to trendy fashionista to street wear to all out glam. She has that ability to morph her look so she should have a good career if she stays on this track.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    I like the Calvin Klein, but wish it was on someone else. I’m so sick of everyone in that family being everywhere all the time.
    Michelle’s is classically gorgeous, and I am in love with Mary J’s gown. There’s sort of an art deco feel to the design.

    • Sarah says:

      Kendall looks fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. I love that gown and the color.

      • Teri says:

        There is a different look to this dress. To me it has style, not just another copy trying to make the same thing look different. I think she looks perfect in it.

  5. Mzizkrizten says:

    LOVE kendal’s dress. Love the color of Irina’s dress, dislike the midsection. Love Izabel’s dress.

  6. Josephine says:

    Michelle and Mary both look great and easily outshine the rest here.

    Kendall’s hair looks dirty. The color of the dress is nice but she doesn’t carry it well at all. Such a dullard.

  7. MonicaQ says:

    I sometimes empathize fashion wise with M.Rod so much. I am so not built for fashion so it’s, “Is this well tailored and not busy? Cool. We’ll do that.” None of these insane risks.

  8. InvaderTak says:

    Is it the camera flash, my phone screen or is kendalls top a different color than the bottom? Calvin k. Likes that shade of purple. It looks like the euphoria ads. Overall everyone looked pretty good. Everyone was dressed for the same event. Rarity that.

    • mytbean says:

      I think you’re right. This reminds me of the fuchsia and pink dress/choker we saw on someone the other day… can’t remember who it was but the shades looked like an attempted match fail.

  9. Teri says:

    I love Kendall’s dress. Rita Ora’s dress is a mess. The green dress is just ugly and trying too hard. The rest of the ladies look nice.

  10. AlmondJoy says:

    Kendall looks so unhappy in these pics. Such a pretty dress.

    I need to google Irina Shayk.. She is GORGEOUS

    Michelle Rodriguez needs some color on her lips! Mary J does as well. I don’t think she looks dated, she just looks very much like herself. Mary always wears the same type of dresses, kind of like how Sofia Vergara does.

    Melissa George.. STUNNING. This is probably my favorite look so far.

  11. Greek chic says:

    Why Rita Ora insists on being platinum blonde? She doesn’t have the complexion for it. It looks fake and tacky. I don’t like her but I think she would look cuter as a brunette.

    Kendall looks nice but I always find her boring.
    Izabel Goulard looks great!

  12. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Kendall’s dress (and Kendall) doesn’t do much for me. If you have to throw your skirt up in the air to make it move, there’s something off. Or maybe she just annoys me.

  13. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    Kendall, who are your favorite French New Wave directors?#AskHerMore.

    • Saks says:

      Rita (or any of them), would you say the current wave of hiperrealism in films has more influence of the Italian neo-realism or the french new wave?

      • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

        “Rita would you say the current wave of hiperrealism in films has more influence of the Italian neo-realism or the french new wave?”

        Rita: Huh?


  14. Barrett says:

    I like Kendall in color! She often wears black casually but it makes her look like she emulating her boring mom and sisters. She comes into her own in a different color!

  15. Barrett says:

    Anyone ever notice Bradley Cooper goes for the blond (Renee Zellweger and Suki Waterhouse then Latin or darker skinned Zoey Saldano, this latest model and then back to a blond) he’s 40. Damn. Old man.

    • Jayna says:

      That sounds to me like he doesn’t have one type he sticks to like Leo, only blonde tall models. I can’t bash on him for dating tall, thin, petite, curvy (his ex-wife), darker-skinned, fair-skinned, shorter, etc.

  16. Neelyo says:

    I finally realized who Rita Ora reminds me of: Sylvia Miles.

    And look, there’s Deadeyed Jenner doing a twirl. That fabric has more life than her.

    • Chrissy says:

      I agree, Neelyo. Kendall’s dress is wearing her. Love the colour but she’s so incredibly blah! I love Mary J.’s dress though… she looks fierce!

  17. Dawn says:

    Kendall is so young and yet there is something there that makes her look so old and used. I can’t explain it. The color looks great, the hair looks dirty but cute it that up-do and yet there is just something so off. When she smiles she looks so much better but still not as young as she is and certainly not fresh.

  18. Jayna says:

    I love Kendall’s gown on her. It really is beautiful on her body type and height.

  19. Amy says:

    Kendall’s dress reminds me of something a fashionable girl would wear to prom: name brand, show off a lot of skin, actuay pretty ugly.

    I sort of hate how the top is plastered to her skin and the bottom is so flouncy.

    Gotta admit Irina caught my eye, I think you’re right that the dress is so dramatic that she pulls it off. This isn’t peek-a-boo but very confident and comfortable which translates to how she wears it.

  20. Jayna says:

    Irina is so striking. Not feeling that gown, though.

  21. serena says:

    Michelle Rodriguez’s dress is beautiful but she should have changed colour.. it really is too valentine-y and her no-make-up look is awful. If you wear an important red dress go big with hair and make up too!

  22. Naddie says:

    I loved Kendall’s gown, it looks beautiful on her.
    Rita, go away already.
    Irina is so good looking that it scares me sometimes. Hope I’ll never need to share the same room with her.

  23. Nessa says:

    Just here for Irina because SHE IS GORGEOUSSSS!!! So hot.

  24. meme says:

    Irina reminds me of JLo…wearing LOOKIT I’M ALMOST naked dresses thirsting for attention.

    Rita Ora is ticky tacky. Isabel Gouret should have worn deadeyed Kendall’s dress.

  25. CityGirl says:

    I love Kendall’s gown and her in it!!!! I think it’s beautiful, age appropriate, and non Try Hard,

  26. Ellecommelejour says:

    Somebody please explain to me since when did Rita Oreo became a thing? Why is she everywhere with so little talent????

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Since when is talent a requirement for Top 40 success? I thought it was actually considered a barrier for entry.

    • Josefa says:

      She’s far more talented than about 90% of the pop stars nowadays. She has a truly beautiful voice. The problem is her management. They are trying to sell her as the next Rihanna or something, and it really doesn’t work for her. She’s so generic and such a carbon copy of everything else.

  27. Hannah says:

    I love what Kendall is wearing, hate to admit it. I feel like that’s what Kim thinks she looks like or wants to because a lot of things she wears would look much better on Kendall.

  28. rudy says:

    How anyone could call Kendall’s dress garish is beyond me.
    She looks beautiful.
    Very natural looks, very different forom her family.

  29. Michelle says:

    I think Kendall’s dress is gorgeous and she is really starting to grow on me. I like her personality and think she is the least Kardashian-like in the entire family. I found her to be very sweet and empathetic when I watched their show on Bruce’s transitioning as well. I think Kendall is going to be around for a long time.

  30. Vava says:

    I like the Calvin Klein dress, but the top doesn’t have the same hue as the skirt and that bugs me. Hate Kendall’s hairstyle, it does look dirty like another poster mentioned.

    My favorite dress is that red strapless one.

  31. Josefa says:

    I think they all look great except for Rita, who looks ridiculous. MJB’s dress is nice, except for the weird cleavage.

  32. Kisses says:

    Resort fashion NOT black tie. The karadashian kurse strikes again.

  33. Mar says:

    Kendall is the by far the most naturally beautiful sister. All of the others have a least 5 or more body/face enhancements with Kim having the most. Maybe Kourtney has less then all.
    The hottest women here is Iryna, I hate her dress but she looks so hot!
    Overall these dresses all work for me except Rita, just a hot mess!!!

  34. Misssy says:

    I love Kendall’s dress.
