No you can’t, at least not for me. If there was one thing that was as amazing as Nuri Bilge Ceylan winning the Palme d’Or for the second time and dedicating it to all the young people who have died in Turkey (in the protests, mine accidents etc) the past year, it was the endless line of breathtaking gowns on the Cote d’Azur red carpet.
Last year I tried to make a post about Cannes red carpet every two days; there were a number of statement looks everyday and I wanted to share them in the heat of the moment. However, after 3 posts, I frankly got tired and couldn’t keep up with the marathon. This year I decided to wait till the end and make one big “best of Cannes 2014” post and boy was it hard.
Blake Lively‘s burgundy Gucci Premieré and Lara Stone‘s magenta Calvin Klein were absolute favorites, but I never intended to put Chloe Grace Moretz‘s statement Chanel look (maybe she should be the face of Chanel instead of Kristen Stewart, huh Karl?) or Daria Strokous‘ golden 40’s glamour or Adriana Lima‘s heart-pounding Alexandre Vauthier on the back burner.
I’ve read so many articles about how Cannes red carpet is much more courageous than of Academy Awards and it’s impossible not to agree: every year it’s one week of enviable overdose of highest possible fashion you can imagine and everytime you say “can they top it next year?” and yes, they always Cannes.
