Grace or Disgrace: Red Carpet Fashion at Cannes Opening Night

Published May 15, 2014 by The Feminist

Last night the much anticipated and controversial film Grace of Monaco kicked off the 67th Cannes Festival. Although the mixed film reviews were hardly something to celebrate, the stars did manage to plaster a smile on their faces and stroll across the red carpet in true French Riviera style.

Unfortunately, not all of them embraced their inner Grace Kelly…

Here are the good ones.

Grace:

Zhang Ziyi

She wore my favourite outfit of the evening. Isn’t that just the most extraordinary dress you have ever seen? It is bold, daring and a bit bonkers but –damn!- it just looks amazing!

Blake Lively

Stunning as always, Blake Lively in deep red.

Jane Fonda

More deep red with Jane Fonda’s gorgeous Elie Saab gown. A legendary dress for an even more legendary woman.

Nicole Kidman

The star of the night did not let the bad reviews get to her. Why would you? She looks absolutely amazing in her embellished blue Armani dress, and that alone is reason enough to raise your glass!

Paz Vega

Nicole Kidman may be the star in Grace of Monaco, but on the red carpet Paz certainly looked as ravishing as her Australian co-star.

Now prepare yourself for the bad ones.

Disgrace:

Kendall Jenner

Just as Zhang Ziyi, Kendall opted for graphic black and white, but whereas Zhang blew everyone’s mind with her gorgeous gown, Kendall made us sigh out of utter frustration. What was she thinking?

Karlie Kloss

I think I might have missed the memo that said that all the models were to wear hideous dresses. Seriously. Kendall’s dress was bad enough, but Karlie’s truly made me want to run up the hills.

Laetitia Casta

Oh yes, yet another model in yet another ugly sack.

  • Oh dear, sadly I concur with the “disgraces.” What on earth were they think in and why didn’t a friend tell them don’t do it? Jane Fonda looks ahhhhmazing and Blake Lively’s shoes are everything. I enjoyed your post.

  • I totally agree! Zhang Ziyi’s dress tops it all! Even for ordinary mortals like the rest of us who could do without the puff and the train, the dress would still be more than absolutely fabulous! Those arm details on see through material are stunningly clever especially for those of us who don’t have bone-thin arms. But the puff and the train are perfect for this occasion! Wish we could see her handbag and earrings more clearly! 🙂
