Funky Fashion Friday: Loving and Frenchmen and Danger, Oh My!


Let’s just start things off right, with Ruth Negga in Giorgio Armani; I love it. Sexy, a little risqué, but not vulgar.


Interestingly, she went for quite a different vibe at the Loving photocall, in a metallic Sumo that I’ve changed my mind on about ten times already. Preacher hasn’t even started yet, and I’m madly in love with this woman.


Edgerton cleans up nicely, too.


Emilia Clarke wore this plaid Bottega Veneta number to her Me Before You premiere in Toronto, and I absolutely adore it. I know it’s a little out there with the sparkly business and personally, and I might be in the minority, but her whole look just works for me. I also love seeing her natural hair.



Likewise, I’m digging Caitriona Balfe’s low-key(ish for Cannes) Louis Vuitton, especially the top. Finally, we’re getting away from the toilet-paperish goings-on that seemed to be all over the French red carpet.


Chloë Sevigny is just one of the many who went white and fluffy and Chanel-y; this is actually one of her less prim looks, and I like it. Yes, it’s see-through and yes, a little tight around the boobtastic area, but I”m so happy to see her not in a high-neck princess dress that I’m calling it a win.


This is Mads in some suit for a VF Cannes Portrait, and it just doesn’t get any better.


Okay, I lied.

Chanel Iman is flawless in this Kaufman Franco.


As is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, dramaramaing it up in a scarlett Alexandre Vauthier.



Not for nothing, but Blake Lively in Atelier Versace is the Cannes-iest Cannes fashion photo I’ve seen. Sweet Baby Deadpool bump 🙂


This is a case of a poorly clad Frenchman (that’s a black polo shirt under a navy blazer), however; this is also a case of:  IT’S VINCENT CASSEL. Yes, I have a crush. Aren’t his glasses nice?


I have but one fashion goal when I reach my golden years:  to have half the style Helen Mirren does. First she arrived to her Cannes hotel in this fabulous jacket…


then she showed up at a premiere in this gorgeous, twirl-worthy Bruce Oldfield number.


Viggo and his Captain Fantastic cast went a little casual at the film’s premiere, but I can’t seem to focus on the clothes; something’s distracting me.


It seemed to be a running gag.


But, Iggy’s my absolute favorite.



Happy Friday, y’all!

    First up – I’m bad at fashion.
    Now Ruth I love both of her looks. The second one should be two different dresses. Love it though.
    Caitriona Balfe’s outfit is the bee’s knees. My favorite and I haven’t even finished yet.
    Chloe looks very pretty, but I don’t like the bottom hem.
    Mads is d;aghdiwnv a GG;NB AS ADAA Ehuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    I’m sorry. What were we talking about? Oh right. I love Cannes. The end.

  • ChainedVase

    I am not a fan of things that look like I can see your unnapants, so I wish Ruth’s first gown was lined or something? But the silver Star Trek dress is fab.
    I love Dame Helen’s shoes and coat. Holy Blue I wish I could wear heels because I love those shoes.

    • right i just think it always looks awkward? i am such a weirdo

  • Valhallaback Girl

    I always forget that Chloe Sevigny has the propensity to bring it from time to time because she dresses awful like 90% of the time. She’s not a conventional beauty and has some incredibly stunning features, but I always get overwhelmed by what she’s wearing to really focus on her, i guess. I think Bella Hadid looks absolutely show stopping in this Alexandre Vauthier Couture red dress. I know the slit might be inappropriately high, but uhh…damn.–/YXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjtzbT0xO3c9ODAw/–/YXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjtzbT0xO3c9ODAw/

    • Heh. She looks great, but uh…well, you know.

    • Angry dimples

      its super strange in the butt area.

  • I’ve been in love with Ruth she specialized in floral dresses. Also i could never be famous. I can’t pull fashion off ever.

    • Angry dimples

      you can be one of the cool kids that wear vans sneakers with prom dresses! it could be your calling card and very funky.

      • it works out, since i work for vans

        • Angry dimples

          i wrote it because i know that.

  • emmalita

    Is Iggy doing the Arrested Development chicken dance?

    • Iggy’s doing whatever the heck he wants 😀

      • emmalita

        He has earned that right. And I shall assume he’s about to break into a Bluth Chicken Dance, because it makes me happy.

  • Angry dimples

    I like Clarke’s dress too. i especially appreciate the red shoes with it and not nude hoofes the starlets seem to favour. I hate the first dress on Negga – that visible underpants trend needs to die. that silver number though? daaamn.

  • Freetheklingons

    I love the VIGGO photos.
