More Cannes red carpet fashion -- let me know what you think!

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

Last week on opening night of the 62nd International Cannes Film Festival, I posted a few red carpet photos, and you had lots to say. Everyone seemed to be in agreement that Indian actress Aishwarya Rai (who Roger Ebert once referred to in a review as the "most beautiful woman in the world"), was by far the best-dressed. One reader thanked Italian actress Asia Argento for wearing her sofa to Cannes.

Here are few more red carpet photos from today and over the weekend. Let me know whose dress you like and whose you don't like. Or if you just feel like some Monday afternoon cattiness, I'll take those comments too:

Is a credit on one episode of "The X Files" enough to get you into Cannes?: American "actress" Phoebe Price, who doesn't seem to be famous for anything except figuring out how to get on red carpets, is wearing an exact replica of one of my jazz recital outfits from second grade. I think she's even performing one of my moves. Courtesy of AP

Evangeline Lilly dazzles me! She's stunning and very classy.
She's definitely the best looking one in the Cannes Festival,

....None of these dresses excite me. Ashwari Rai is beautiful,but her good looks are a little boring at this point. Rachel Weitz looks good, but....I'm just waiting to see the beautiful and EXCITING Angelina Jolie! Now that's a woman with beauty, brains, and GUTS...who knows how to christen the red carpet! Cant wait to see her!

I am a hard-core follower of fashion and I love the way Angelina looks in any dress.
