Why I love Cannes

May 21, 2014

I don’t often blog about red carpet fashion. While the gowns, suits, beauty looks and hair styles are entertaining both to view and to discuss, I am much more concerned with the “normal” clothing the “average” person wears in their day-to-day life and would much rather write about how to conquer a tricky trend or find the right pair of jeans than who stunned (or, alternately, disappointed) on the red carpet. However, there is one fashion event that always manages to hold my attention – the Cannes Film Festival.

In my opinion, Cannes generates some of the year’s most memorable fashion moments and here’s why:

 

The Location

As if the beautiful stars and fashion weren’t exciting enough, the festival’s events are set against the breathtaking backdrop of the French Riviera. ‘Nuff said.


 

Red Carpet…and beyond!

Since the Festival holds press conferences and photo calls throughout the daytime hours in addition to the evening’s red carpet events, the actors are not only required to come prepared with their best gowns and tuxes, but they must also model more “casual” daywear ensembles. Personally, I find these outfits enthralling and sometimes even more interesting than the usual red carpet fare due to their accessibility and modernity.

International Intersection

Bored of the same stars over and over again? You won’t be at Cannes! There is always some new international actor or actress (or both!) who is making their debut. Pay attention to Cannes and be the first to know who they are before their (almost inevitable) meteoric rise to fame.

 

Paparazzi in Black Tie

In order to attend a red carpet event at the Palais des Festivals at Cannes, everyone must be in black tie – even the paparazzi. For some reason, this tickles me pink. And it makes for fabulous photos. Starlets pose in their couture gowns against the backdrop of the rich burgundy carpet and a sea of frenzied photographers, all in black and white. It imbues every photo with a kind of frenetic energy that, in my mind, enhances the images.

*Kendall Jenner came as a model, NOT as a reality star

 

Thespians Only (for the most part)

Sick and tired of wading through photos of reality stars and pseudo-famous people to get to the pictures of your favorite actors and actresses following a red carpet event? Fear not! Cannes seems to keep it pretty classy in this regard and does not cater to that celebrity sub-set. Yes, the occasional model can be spotted on the red carpet, but, let’s be honest, nobody minds that.

Have I piqued your interest?? If so, you can enjoy the Festival and it’s fashions through the end of the week. Hit up the official website – www.festival-cannes.com - for photos of all the exciting events and/or like/follow any and all of your favorite fashion magazines and blogs on Facebook and Instagram to get live updates on all of the fashionable comings and goings. Enjoy!

“Reporters Ultimately Don’t Stop”

April 02, 2020

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

Maye Musk Is Really Rockin’

March 27, 2020

On April 19th of this year, Musk turns 72-years-old and her life has never been better! CLICK HERE to read our first blog about this lovely lady. 

Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific.  Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

Let’s Look at Las Vegas vs. Dubai

March 21, 2020

I recently came across an article in a magazine titled Resident that really intrigued me. It appeared in October 2019, was written by Marvin Scott and sported a provocative headline that said, “Dubai: Las Vegas on Steroids.” Who could resist a description like that? Or, as the author says, “There are no glittering lights to lure you in, but there is an electrifying vibrancy that beckons a FIRST-TIME VISITOR.
