The 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival wrapped up this weekend, and not a minute too soon. Our brains were starting to feel the fatigue due to the influx of too many premieres and too much fashion. But now that it’s over, we’re feeling a sort of fond affinity to a couple of gowns that stand out in our minds, not because they were best-dressed or worst-dressed, but because we emitted some very loud WTF’s when we saw them. So, without further ado, and because we like your WTF’s much better than our own, we’d like to present the top five of this exalted list to you.
1. Diane Kruger: This is Christian Dior Couture, guys. We want it. Even though we’re screaming WTF, we covet it. Only, Diane, the Victorian Era called. It wants dibs on the bustle next time.
2. Jada Pinkett Smith: Toy Story 2 was on television on rerun Sunday yesterday. We realized that if the evil Emperor Zurg had a consort, then we’d vote for Jada in this Paco Rabanne number as the number one pick for the part. She’s so AWESOME she’s beyond WTF. And could inflict real plain with those shoulder pads!
4. Cheryl Cole: Call the police! Someone murdered Big Bird and attached his remains to the bottom of Cheryl’s Stephane Rolland dress. R.I.P Big Bird. Also … WTF?
5. Freida Pinto: A box of glitter pens exploded on the bodice of her Michael Angel gown. The peplum is an origami exercise gone wrong. The slit is trying to be Angelina Jolie. WTF, Freida?
