Cannes We Not?

That is a terrible pun, and I apologize for it. Self-aware terrible jokes are awesome, though.

Anyway, the Cannes film festival is ongoing, and several people seem to be….confused. I am not okay with it.

Billboard Music Messes

My attempts to not delay this morning were violently struck down by a storm last night and a metric ton of things to do this morning. Clearly I am bad at blogging, deadlines, and life.

Anyway, last night were the Billboard Awards. There were several badly dressed people, and since we’re also in the middle of Cannes, and Eurovision was this weekend, I found myself debating what to write about due to an overabundance of options.

Cannes Shenanigans

It should be noted that due to summer-related laziness, every blog post this week has been late. I feel bad about this and resolve to start afresh next week.

What I do not feel bad about is the fact that it’s the Cannes Film Festival, and so far people are mostly dressing well. Nicole Kidman, as one of the jurors, has looked particularly excellent, and while Carey Mulligan DID wear an oddly textured Alexander Wang jumpsuit, the timing was such that I didn’t blog about it.

But as we get into the festival, I now have some things to complain about. We start off with Clotilde, Princess of Venice (that’s a thing?), who has taken a far too literal inspiration from her city’s aquatic roots.

BAFTA Shenanigans

As is so often the case at these sorts of events (The TV BAFTAS), there are some people who got it fantastically right, such as Helen McCrory. I suspect she was in Oscar de la Renta, which is always a good choice for these sorts of things. She looked beautiful and tasteful. Other people tried hard but ultimately looked ridiculous. These are their stories. (Law & Order Noise) Read more of this post
