Cannes 2012: Tilda’s Nomadic Man

She may have worn Chanel to the recent Cruise collection, but it was her bestie, who held her affection.

Nomad's land? The future King of French fashion? Was his attendance at Versailles a sign of things to come?

Shall we pause a moment to study the sheen of the pants against the dust of the boot? There will be an advanced thesis course on scarf wrapping, this coming fall. I suggest you register, because you cannot master this on your own. No April Foulard, our Mr. Ackermann.

As Tilda is wont to do, she wore his translation of constructed deconstruction on the red carpet, again this year.
