You don’t get more fancy than Cannes, especially when it come to dresses. The stars bring their fashion A game hard. It’s not Cannes without gowns and glitz and sparkle. That’s why I’m so confused about what Blake Lively has been doing while pushing her new Woody Allen pic and her shark movie, The Shallows. Whoever her stylist is needs a crash course in learning that a dress and a piece of fabric are distinctly different.
Allison very aptly called the theme of Blake’s Cannes wardrobe “Fabric Store Fire Sale” earlier in the week. Because the bland are reliable, Blake didn’t let us down theme wise at the premiere for Steven Spielberg‘s The BFG with what I’m sure she and her stylist referred to as “the showstopper“. Yet again, this is less a dress and more a roll of fabric from the prom section of that fabric store that’s stocked with irregular fabrics. I see what they were trying to do, some modern, sexy Cinderella shit but it just looks like what it is, some ugly beaded fabric with a train. Unless you’re really gonna go all out Disney villain with a long ass train, don’t try it because it goes from drama to attention seeking. Even with 100 feet of blue drama, Blake’s look is still putting me to sle- Ok. I’m back. Dozed off for a second.
