Ah Cannes. Movie premiers and judging. Deals made and broken. Parties on huge boats, a rabid scene-and-be-seen. Bikinis, babes and bubbly. The yearly tsunami of celebrities (and the paparazzi that follow them) descending over a beautiful yet decadent Southern France setting. It really is enough for any self-respecting movie star to grow exhausted over how many different outfits they might have to wear.
The 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals was really no different than any other before it. This truly is an explosion for movie press and movie makers to do the one thing they do better the even making films…talking about making films. And as Cannes has grown in popularity over the near century it has been in existence, the cult of celebrity had grown with it.
When one reviews the stars who showed this year at this granddaddy of international film festivals, the American film community seemed in the largest percentage. And those of that community-the Will Smith’s, Susan Sarandon’s, Julianna Moore’s-came ready for the constant change-up of their wardrobe this kind of event demands
Smith donned suits and tuxes, looking very much the super popular mega star he was, whether hanging at a “photocall” or standing on a red carpet with his fellow judges.
Susan Sarandon walked into one premier in a long black skirt, white blouse and black jacket. Then we saw her in a low cut over-ample display of cleavage in a long gown for yet another premier.
Most likely the celebrity who had the most changes-and drastic o s at that-was model Emily Ratajkowski. Not only was she seen at premiers in long gowns with slits, a see-thru crape dress with a long “poofy” train and a long vanilla gown with her hair in a tight black bob-at the “Ismael’s Ghosts” premier-she was also maintaining a post (and filing Instagram pics) in various bikinis.
All in a days work for our best and brightest at Cannes.
