What's Cannes like? How deep is the Eurocheese? What does it look like? What does it smell like? Sometimes words are inadequate. And if you've never come here, this just about sums it up. Roberto Cavalli. Enjoy the amazingness. Photos from Flynetonline.com Full Story

Elizabeth Banks. See I thought she was a beige person. Not particularly exciting. But Cannes, Cannes brings out the real drama. And often the real bitch. So no, she’s definitely not beige. She just might be the next Sharon Stone. At the Grey Goose event on Saturday night… Have to describe the setting: So it’s a chateau. Full Story

They say there’s a recession but you wouldn’t know it here in Cannes. They say the studios have scaled back a fair bit.

Saturday night, Grey Goose party at the Chateau de la Napoule. A real chateau. Not some fake Adrien Brody upstate New York cheese ass girlfriend sh-t. Legit French chateau, spectacular setting. Grey Goose parties are the best. If you ever get invited to one, put aside everything and go. Be like Tara Reid and book on points. Full Story

Ryan Phillippe’s CarbFace arrived in Nice on Thursday, surprisingly not wearing a beater tank. Am shocked. Ryan is at the festival for The Bang, Bang Club which he’s been shooting in South Africa. He’ll be joined by Canadian co-stars Malin Akerman and – yes! – Taylor Kitsch for advance press and marketing events in support of the film. Full Story

It begins. Another Cannes Film Festival. And at tonight’s opening gala, a goddess arrived. Her name? Tilda Swinton. Please. Who else? I LOVE how far she has to bend down to greet that woman. I LOVE how graceful she is. I LOVE how beautiful she is. Beautiful but not delicate. And this is good. Full Story
