amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS 2008 benefit was held last night in Cannes, and... wow. Just wow. (Right now I'm geeking out on too much coffee, cigarettes and, you know, the fact that it's Friday.) Everyone showed up in support: Madonna, Mary J. Blige, Natalie Portman, and even Sharon Stone. Some were fugly (see Stone), some were clueless (Samantha Morton much?), but most were fantastic. What a great way to end my first guest-blogging week! Check out my favorite and least-favorite fashions after the jump, and learn more about amfAR's good work here.
I love Joely Richardson in this Beetlejuice-esque number.
This is supposedly Julia Restoin-Roitfeld but she looks different here, right? Whoever it is, she looks stunning.
If I had gams like Lily Donaldson, I'd sleep in this dress.
Dear Madonna, I dare you to be my BFF and give me all your hand-me-downs. (Truth: she wouldn't give me the time of day.)
Mary J. Blige can do no wrong and if you disagree with me, I will cut you.
Margharita Missoni has a great name, a great fortune, and a great dress.
Natalia gets my vote for best dress. She looks like the Chrysler building. That's a good thing!
Petra looks flawless. She was smart not to wear a necklace and direct all eye-contact to her boobs. Thank you pretty lady.
And last but not least, enter my new obsession: this couple. Sam Riley played Ian Curtis in that movie Control (which gave me like, 69 orgasms), and his girlfriend Alexandra Maria Lara was in the movie as well.
Amira Casar, aka Frumpy Cold Medina.
Natalie Portman? More like Gnar Gnar Binks.
I love me a Juliette Lewis, but she's working a Miss Hannigan look here. I also love me a Miss Hannigan but that's beside the point.
Cecile Cassel . The hipster headband is soooo yesterday.
Natasha Poly is wearing a dress that's giving me an MC Escher vibe
Zhang Ziyi, step it up for crying out loud! "This isn't a dinner party, honey." (Name that movie)
Rose McGowan is wearing all the Mood leftovers that the Project Runway contestants ended up not using.
Tamara Beckwith looks like every girl who tried to beat me up in high school. In other words, she looks like an asshole from Long Island.
What happens in Vegas is incidentally what also happens to Sharon Stone when she dresses like a cougar.
Samantha Morton. Don't get me wrong, I love a good garbage bag; they're useful and what not! I just wouldn't attach sheer sleeves to mine and wear it a fancy party is all.
Orange you glad I couldn't think of anything better to write for Judith Godreche's big ugly dress?
I find it hard to believe that Milla Jovovitch thinks she looks good in this truly mediocre outfit. Plus, only 7 year olds and most of my friends can get away with wearing their hair like that.
Is it just me, or don't you think it's a little weird how Denise Rich tried this on and was like "This is it! Look out amFAR's here I come!"
