Cannes 2013: ZZ Tops

My dears, I am back. Cannes I help it? Not really, no.

I was sitting here quietly in front of my laptop, planning on just looking at what was strolling, strutting or simpering down ze tapis rouge on ze ozzer size of ze pond and well, opinions started to spring forth. Also, I missed you, darlings.

Cannes 2013 is kicking off in couture-ish and chaotic style (punk pun fully intended), despite the rain. I think for Cannes, one has to go either way – full-on couture or crazy chaos – both are respected and expected. After all, those sea breezes do affect one’s whims.

Zhang Ziyi always makes red carpet dressing look breezy, and I thought she played it brilliantly tonight, in Dior Couture.

Easy breezy red carpet dressing.

She wisely chose trousers while other starlets had their rain-soaked trains trod upon. The petit peplum, pants and patterned pumps are perfection. Plus, that hair!

She tops the looks I’ve seen so far, tonight.

Also, I might need every shoe Raf Simons has sent down his Dior-era runway…
