The last 24 hours at Cannes have been remarkably eventful! First there was the post-Bling Ring jewelry theft, then a crazy gun-wielding man, followed by a lady wearing an enormous dress made of old biscuit packages (dark chocolate McVities, hopefully) to a screening of The Past. To compare, last year’s Cannes was so tame that a snail made news.
Of course, despite all the hoopla, celebrities carried on wearing splendid gowns to fancy parties. Today brought some new faces, namely a goddess-like Doutzen Kroes in Atelier Versace, Samantha Barks in Chrisian Dior, and Eva Longoria in Zuhair Murad. Meanwhile, Marion Cotillard took a rare turn in stripey Vivienne Westwood, and Robin Wright looked cooler than everyone else combined with her simple white tank and pressed pants.
