Kate & Naomi: two black dresses
Can you imagine how happy Kate Beckinsale must be these two weeks? It’s virtually impossible, in theory, among so many tacky Euros, to OverDress in Cannes. Every night she’s in a new big dress and people want to take her picture. Every night she’s walking that carpet hoping so hard that it belongs to her. Last night was no exception. At the premiere of Biutiful, here’s Kate, the jury member, fronting like she’s actually a part of the film, in a gorgeous Balmain accessorised by her right leg. She’s not posing very well with that right leg. It’s not...centred enough. See? This just about sums her up. Always falling a little short.
One dress per night? It’s never enough for Beckinsale. Which is why she changed for the Chopard party after the gala. Let her have her moment then. When we look back in several years, being a judge at this festival and wearing pretty dress after pretty dress might just be her crowning achievement.
And then there’s Naomi Watts. Naomi Watts has been nominated once for an Oscar, will undoubtedly be nominated again, and showed up last night in an understated Roland Mouret in support of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu who directed her in 21 Grams. Biutiful is not her film. And so she didn’t dress like it was. Naomi knows.
