No, not Apple Martin. For years Aishwarya Rai has been called the Most Beautiful Woman In The World, because the world exists beyond North America. Rai is a Cannes regular. She arrived in Nice today and is at the festival to attend a screening celebrating Indian film. She’s expected at the Palais on Monday. Full Story

Stop what you’re doing right now. Because Colin Firth was in Cannes. Looking better than he has in a long time. Here he is being beautiful at a couple of Chopard events yesterday. Livia, his wife, is there too. Colin’s kept a relatively low profile for the last couple of years but he’s recently been confirmed to star in Woody Allen’s latest, with Emma Stone, and also in Matthew Vaughn’s The Secret Service, described as a comic book Bond. Full Story

Cannes loves Chinese cinema. It has been 13 years since Tony Leung was named Best Actor for Wong Kar-Wai’s masterpiece In The Mood For Love. This time he’s in Cannes to support his wife, Carina Lau, who’s at the festival for Bends. Here they are just after arriving in Nice today. Full Story

Emma Watson’s wardrobe choices in Cannes today for the photo call and presser were really boring. I posted those pictures to the LifeStyle page. Was hoping she was saving something for the gala. Nope. The back is interesting-ish, I guess. Full Story

Oh thank God it was a wig

Zhang Ziyi showed up with short hair last night at the Palais in Cannes and I recoiled in horror. The hair. It looked like she’d chopped it, and I was all ready to write an article today, finally with photo accompaniment, about why it’s hard for Chinese girls to do the pixie because of the way it grows out spikey and straight up out our heads. Full Story

Many of you have been asking whether or not Marcus Mumford was in Cannes with Carey Mulligan last night at The Great Gatsby opening. He was. If you can get past Leonardo DiCaprio, he’s sitting behind Carey in the theatre. I wonder if she made it through the entire film without leaving. She says she can’t stand watching herself. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Cannes kicks off today. The Great Gatsby photo call has already happened and people have been hard for weeks about a Baz Luhrmann production opening the festival. Already, even at the jury photo call, Granny Freeze showed up in sparkles so the dress porn tonight at the Palais will be... spectacular. Always. Here’s how Cannes isn’t like the Oscars: they’re not particularly discerning about who they let on their carpet. I’ve seen Phoebe Price on the Cannes carpet before. Several. Times.

Cannes is one of the few places in the world, maybe the only place in the world, where you might find Phoebe Price and Leonardo DiCaprio on the carpet at the same time. It’s outrageous excess, glorified cheese, and shameless star-f*ckery. God I love it. And by the end of it, even the spectators need to detox.

This year, our extensive Cannes coverage is sponsored by U by Kotex® and they’re helping us give away an amazing Festival Experience in Toronto for you and a friend. Stay at my favourite world class hotel in Toronto during the most celebrity-heavy week in the city, spend $1000 while there, enjoy a day at the spa, and more.

Yours in gossip,


Pippy thinks he’s Jimmy Darmody

Justin Timberlake is now in Cannes. So f-ck everyone because it’s ALL ABOUT PIPSQUEAK. Here he is on the Croisette promoting his next film Spinning Gold, the Neil Bogart biopic that’s just been acquired by Sony for foreign rights, which is why here’s there, in part, to tap dance for foreign money. Full Story

As expected, Nicole Kidman killed it tonight in Cannes. Her best, best, BEST showing in years. This exquisite dress is Christian Dior from the Haute Couture S/S 2013 that I posted here in January. And I called it exquisite then too. Shocking that there wasn’t more of this at the Oscars. Full Story
