The drama of the 65th Cannes Film Festival began last night (May 16) with the opening dinner event, and stars hit the red carpet proving that lace can be nice, and lace can be not-so-nice. Eva Longoria looked gorgeous and ethereal in feathery black lace, and we loved her look. On the other hand, French socialite Mouna Ayoub showed exactly how not to wear lace in a painfully bright, see-through orange and black dress.
Eva Longoria wowed us in her very French up-do and Alberta Ferretti gown. She looked subdued, subtle and sexy in the panelled nude and black dress, which floated over her figure beautifully. Eva was one of our best dressed picks for the Cannes opening night in this look and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
French business woman Mouna Ayoub may not be a household name, but her day-glo orange lace failure will surely be household fodder. We don’t know what she was thinking in this Halloween inspired costume complete with black bodysuit and black elbow length gloves. At least she looks happy? This look makes us think of Fergie’s orange-red lace see-through dress at the Grammy’s, and we suggest leaving that risk to Fergie in the future. At least Fergie is an entertainer!
