Red-Car­pet Ca­pers

Prestige Hong Kong - - VIP - CANNES FILM FES­TI­VAL

What? Cannes Film Fes­ti­val cel­e­brates movies from all around the world and the 11-day an­nual af­fair (this was its 71st year!) is one of the few ex­trav­a­gan­zas in which Hol­ly­wood meets its global coun­ter­parts at pre­mieres and par­ties. Re­turn to el­e­gance: Usu­ally, the Cannes red car­pet has more than its fair share of bizarre fash­ion, with Euro­pean de­sign­ers tak­ing a free­wheel­ing ap­proach to drap­ing the stars. This time around, how­ever, most of the sar­to­rial se­lects were nei­ther wild nor whim­si­cal, per­haps be­cause Aus­tralian ac­tress Cate Blanchett was pres­i­dent of the jury. Blanchet is famed for her poise and el­e­gance – and many lead­ing ladies fol­lowed suit. Tak­ing a stand: In the wake of the #MeToo move­ment, 82 women on the red car­pet linked arms in silent protest against ha­rass­ment. When told they weren’t al­lowed to wear flats, Kristin Ste­wart took off her shoes and walked bare­foot. Well, that’s one way to take a stand.
