Netflix has two films at Cannes and Netflix has been the source of all the bitching at the festival because they’re insisting on theatrical release for eligibility; the new rules take effect next year.

You know what makes me crazy? When people make fashion calls without considering what the event is. An outfit for the Oscars is not an outfit for the VMAs. The Emmys and the MET Gala are not the same.

Cannes 2017 kicks off tomorrow, and the festival seems a bit muted, with a noticeable dimming of star power and no obvious Oscar bait in the line-up. That has to be deliberate—there is a real emphasis on the filmmaker, not the actor, this year. Which is good for the actual quality of the cinema, but a little disappointing for people and batsh*t crazy fashion watching. Full Story
