Yes Oui Cannes. . . Part II

More gorgeous women of a certain age at the 63rd annual Festival de Cannes. Some barely at the tipping point of 40ish and the others whateverish. A few from last week who have changed their clothes -- can you imagine anyone wearing the same dress twice?

Though the pictures speak volumes, why should I resist an opportunity to add a few words?

We have in the mix today, Emmanuelle Beart with those dreadful lips of hers (well she owns them, but they're not really hers). I interviewed her years ago for the "London Daily Telegraph" Sunday magazine -- pre-lips -- and she was angelically lovely. Also on review is Ornella Muti looking even less like Ornella Muti than last year; Isabelle Huppert who Edith says now appears younger than her daugher; Meg Ryan, what can one say (?) and Nathalie Baye, who resisted for a long time, but finally succumbed. You be the judge for the others.

Valerie Plame with Naomi Watts who portrays the former CIA agent in the film "Fair Game" is every bit as beautiful and glamourous as any movie star. (The film, directed by Sean Penn, was inspired by the sordid affair of her "outing" which you may recall.)

Do enjoy your stroll down the red carpet. I fear our beloved Helen Mirren headed home with her handsome husband. Let's hope she reappears before the Festival finale.

Fun post. I find Natalie Baye and Glenn Close very "meme" -frumpy blah- and the fat lip set pathetic. There are some really very common/vulgarly dressed, but the most dashing for me are Valerie Plame and Naomy Watts Khristin Scott Thomas and the lady with Dominique Blanc (his wife?) love that dress! I seem to like dresses with velvet tops- the most adorable/intelligent/ " attachante" is Juliette Binoche, looking so normal yet so elegant.
Love her.
I also loved Charlotte Gainsbourg in a simple stunning dress the most dressed up look I have seen on her.
great pun in the title by the way!

Kristin's gown takes my breath away. She is just stunning as always xx

J'adore Juliette Binoche! She looks un-selfconscious, and if she's having a good time...always in style!

Emily said...

Wow Naomi is a vision! Her dress is quite bridal but it's still stuninng.

Duchesse said...

Whenever I see Emanuelle Devos on screen I think "how normal she looks", she embodies an attitude I admire so much. (On screen she plays mostly a nice relaxed femme bourgeoise.)

She looks like my friends- women who dress nicely but not trendily. Who are not starved down and injected within an inch of their lives.

And here, she project the same kind of comfortable beauty.

Most of these were wonderful selections. However...

Guinara Karimova with Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele ????

What were they thinking??

I dare say either would do better with a Venus Williams French Open number...

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Why is it that those hideous lips seem to appear on the most beautiful faces. I will never understand it.
Love the green of Kristin's gown... and love Juliette!!

Pity these beautiful woman who have to ruin their faces, bodies etc. to some surgeon and because society tells us they must look “young”. the men can carry on per usual and still get work. Look at the movies from 20 years ago. The male actors are still working and the young woman in the films are gone ...we can’t even remember their names...sad stuff.

Meeeoooowwwww. Leave Nathalie Baye alone, if you please. Not only is there no sign of plastique, but the woman is a national treasure and probably the best actress in the world. So she's put on a bit of weight. She needed to because at 60 one becomes either a scarecrow or a bit rounder than one was at 40.
