CARINA 360°: Cannes Do's & NEVERS!

If I was a hottie/actress/millionaire, and decided one morning I would go to the Cannes Film Festival, I make sure that the next day I'd be on People Magazines best dressed list.

Perhaps a dress by one of my favorite designers. Such as, Marc Jacobs, Stella Mccartney, or Valentino. And right before stepping out of the house, I'd take a good hard look in the mirror.
Something Joss Stone didn't do ...

Now, I'm no Anna Wintour, or a fashionista for that matter, but I know what looks good most of the time! And this yellow dress is okay but is not what someone should wear to the Cannes! It's too skimpy. And the fruity shoes don't belong on Stone ... or on a human for that matter. They don't even match her dress!

Now onto another Stone; Sharon Stone! Can you say muy sexy? She made me think twice about showing off my legs. I mean. LOOK AT THOSE LEGS! She's 51 and rocked her Balmain dress. Compared to Stone I have stubby chubby legs. BOO.

I believe my fashion icon and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese looked amazing. Teese looked so cute and glamorous in her Dior dress, like 1940's movie star.

But besides the horrible and beautiful dresses at Cannes, lets talk about the movies. You can't talk about the Cannes without the movies.

Now I wasn't able to go see them at the Cannes (I'm guessing my invitation got lost in the mail) but I'm excited! I really want to see the Quentin Tarantino movie, "Inglorious Basterds" with the hunk-hottie Brad Pitt.

And especially "The Silent Army" by Jean van de Velde. It tells the emotional story a resturant owner (Marco Borsato) who goes on a mission to find his son's kidnapped best friend.

Who doesn't want to see that?


  1. I like your taste, so very true about the yellow dress. The colors just didnt suit her well. She's too tan to pull off a yellow of that shade. The only thing I might recommend on Dita's dress is removal of the heavy strap across the top, it kind of limits the girly flow of the dress, but still beautiful I must say.

  2. you really like dresses...thats neat.
