Thank god Cannes exists, otherwise we wouldn’t get our yearly dose of hair sprayed glamour, Elena Lenina. Or is it the other way around? Does Cannes only exist because Elena exists? Woah. Heavy thoughts for a Sunday. Elena so far has been to three premieres at this year’s festival, but let’s hold hands and pray she goes to more.
Elena is known all around the world (right?) for her dedication to the art of hair manipulation. She’s deep, so it’s not just for vanity and style. There’s usual some sexual undertones to it all. Like her efforts to raise awareness of prostate cancer with this and this. The above look is the one that strikes me as the most controversial and envelope pushing of the three looks this year. If I’m interpreting it correctly, and I think I am, this is some sort of message about gender rolls and perceived notions of masculine and feminine. What else would those mozzarella stick dicks on her head be saying? How Blake Lively can even dare to think she can walk the same carpets as Elena is beyond me. Take note ladies, this is what a real STAR looks like!
