Sarah reviewed Tomorrowland in the previous post – click here for a refresher. And while the movie topped the box office for Memorial Day weekend, the actual number isn’t great. The number will need to grow overseas in order for it not to be considered a loss. Full Story

Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender looked like they were having a great time together last night at the amfAR gala in Cannes ahead of the premiere of Macbeth at the festival, one of the most highly anticipated films in competition. Two new clips have just been released showing Fassbender’s Macbeth at his coronation, looking well on his way to derangement, and then later in battle with some curious directing decisions, at least to me. Full Story

OK so the fashion moment we were waiting for… Emma Stone at the Palais tonight in Cannes... And… Le sigh. Of course. She’s gorgeous. She’s wearing the hell out of it. She’s just so lovely. And I love how playful and fun she was, hamming it up for photographers. Full Story

Sean Penn joined Charlize Theron at the Palais in Cannes for Mad Max: Fury Road today. Is this supposed to be our substitute for Brange Cannes? Because I reject that. I was however reminded of previous Cannes. There was a year he was there and I was covering it and on the party scene, he was always the last one to go home. Full Story

The cast of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was in Rome this weekend to promote the film. The movie comes out in August. I am obsessed with Alicia Vikander’s dress. Also her tan. Anyway, as you can see, U.N.C.L.E.’s two leads, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, are working matching beards right now. Full Story

Bradley Cooper was at the MET Gala even though he skipped the carpet. Inside, he and Irina Shayk kept their distance. He was seen talking to JLO before leaving. Afterwards though he and Irina were both at Rihanna’s party with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Miley, JB… And at one point, according to Page Six Full Story

She’s the one I’ve been alluding to the whole time when asking the question – why are you there if you’re not there to play? Joanna described it as a state dinner dress. She’s right. Reese Witherspoon, in this red column, is going to the White House. It’s a fine dress for a White House dinner. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence’s two MET dresses

Hated what Jennifer Lawrence wore to the MET Gala main event, especially as one of the co-hosts. Is it limiting, this Dior deal? Duana wrote earlier about Emily Blunt, about assuming Emily was more fashion forward than she actually is because, hilariously, she was in Devil Wears Prada. And I feel like I’ve done the same with Jennifer because her personality is just so not aligned with what she’s been wearing. Full Story

Emily Blunt: No MET Risk

You know I love Emily Blunt. And you further know Emily Blunt can take a fashion risk.  Well…. I wrote that sentence, and then I found myself in the position of having to back it up, and actually there isn’t that much. Like, she wore a bright green gown to the SAGs a few years back, and there’s a shot of her from one of the Your Sister’s Sisters premieres where she’s wearing what looks like the black and blue version of The Dress – but I realize that Emily Blunt is not actually the fashion risk-taker I have been giving her credit for. Full Story

JLO’s MET Dragon

It’s Versace. But it could also have been Zuhair Murad. What’s the difference? Beading held together by pantyhose – who can tell it apart? Doesn’t matter if there’s a dragon because f-ck, I’m so over it. I’m so over JLO in these kinds of dresses. I’m so over “body-con” as a substitute for imagination. Full Story

So… Dakota Johnson. In Chanel. Nothing in the dress speaks to the theme of the MET Gala. And then you look at her eyes. And because it’s the MET Gala and the theme is China: Through The Looking Glass, and her dress isn’t China at all, now I’m wondering if she and her makeup artist were like, we’ll just give you some slanty eyes and you’re good to go! I just spent several minutes looking at photos of her through the Fifty Shades press tour. Full Story

Rachel Weisz: Worst MET Disappointment

Was it a last minute decision? Like, she wasn’t intending to go but decided to go anyway and just yanked something serviceable out of the closet that didn’t need to be pressed? Then again, it’s Chanel. I’ve no doubt Rachel Weisz has some Chanel lying around but this is couture so… it probably wasn’t yanked from anywhere. Full Story

Kate Hudson: Worst Gold at the MET

As I noted in the open, gold, red, and green, these are the favoured Chinese colours. There was a lot of gold, red, and green at the MET Gala. Some of it done well, with just the right amount of Chinese cheesy, and some of it… well… Kate Hudson in Michael Kors was a mess. The problem is the hair. Full Story

Please note that yellow is not gold. On this night, it doesn’t substitute for gold. Here’s what Duana texted me about Kristen Wiig’s dress: Also f-ck off, Kristen Wiig. Stop it now. And my response: That yellow made me ANGRY. Angry because … Prabal Gurung isn’t usually this unremarkable. Full Story
