After we posted the news that Reese Witherspoon was pregnant back in March, we haven’t really kept a lookout for the actress. That’s all changed now due to the fact that her maternity wardrobe is stellar. It’s not an easy job navigating red carpets while heavily preggers, but Reese has managed to do just that with elan. This closing weekend at Cannes was her moment to shine, and gurl … she sparkled. She was at the festival to promote Mud, where she shares top billing with Matthew McConaughey. And newsflash: her belly’s got big!
The picture on the left was taken during the day as she arrived for the photocall for the movie. We’d like the whole outfit in a regular size, please. Reese wore a black, fitted and ruched cocktail dress by Versace, complete with Versace sunglasses. We’ve fallen head over heels for her strappy fuchsia stilettos as well. The dress proudly displayed her baby bump. It looks like she trusted the brand for her entire trip to Cannes as she wore a navy, custom made Atelier Versace gown for the premiere later in the evening as well. We’re digging the royal blue color, the dual straps and the fact that it’s dusted with Swarovski crystals. We’re totally going to keep an eye put for more of her fashionable outings for the rest of her nine months.

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!
3. Kate Upton: Worn at the amfAR “Cinema Against AIDS” gala, this is just … no. It may be Louis Vuitton, but Kate … WTF? She looks like a box. With grandmother hair.
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?

From what we can tell, David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis is not the side-splitting comedy of the summer. And yet, the photos coming out of the photocall and premiere of the film at Cannes make it seem like the fest’s funniest event yet. Maybe that’s due to star Robert Pattinson’s relentless red-carpet face-making. Or due to the fact that it was pouring at the premiere, and the celebrities in attendance, like Julianna Margulies, could do nothing but laugh at how drenched their gorgeous gowns were getting.
Other random celebs mugging for the cameras at the premiere included Cuba Gooding Jr., Bonnie Wright and Kelly Rutherford. Model Natasha Poly showed the most daring amount of skin at the event, but she had a surprising rival in the side-boob game: none other than Kristen Stewart, in a plunging red Reem Acra stunner. She arrived ahead of her boyfriend and was instead on the arm of pal (and her On the Road co-star) Tom Sturridge.

We always have such high hopes for the annual amfAR “Cinema Against AIDS” gala that happens at Cannes. It’s normally a fashion extravaganza and there’s always a celebrity or two who ends up surprising us. This year, some of the picks on this list did surprise us. Because our regular sartorial favorites — like Nina Dobrev (who fell short in an electric blue, sequined Elie Saab column) — didn’t make it, and Kim Kardashian did. Still, we have to give props where they’re due and Kim worked it in this mustard Elie Saab and old Hollywood red lips, The color is perfect against her skin tone, the fit is great and even though the girls and the gams are out to play, it’s still all very tastefully done.
The models also really stood out with Doutzen Kroes wearing a futuristic and very flattering white Versace gown with silver detailing. Irina Shayk was sheer elegance in a sweeping, taupe Roberto Cavalli gown with gorgeous emerald jewelry. Also spotted look their very best were Kylie Minogue in tangerine Emilio Pucci and Rose McGowan who paid homage to her name in a rose-pink Atelier Versace gown with Chopard jewels. Look at the rest of the fabulously dressed stars in our gallery below. We also have one bonus picture for you. She’s not a celebrity, but a celebrity’s fiance but really deserved to be on the best-dressed list as well. Click after the jump to see who she is.
All of Cannes is abuzz about Nicole Kidman’s amazing performance in Lee Daniels‘ The Paperboy, which screened earlier today. We were already onboard with the flick after Zac Efron said filming sex scenes with Kidman were “the highlight of my life.” But now that the folks at Vulture have spoiled one key crazy part of the movie (which, they say, is full of crazy), we are both eager and apprehensive. Here’s their description: “Nicole Kidman looms over a supine Zac Efron, cries out, ‘If anyone’s gonna pee on him, it’s gonna be me,’ and then squirts an impressive stream of urine onto the High School Musical star’s face and bare chest.”
Sorry, pervs, it is not a weird sex scene that inspires this golden shower, but a jellyfish attack on Zac. And now, all we can picture is the Friends episode, “The One With the Jellyfish.”

We’re always drawn to the Cannes Film Festival for the glamour it represents. Everyone know that it’s as much about fashion as it it is about films, and everyone pulls out their trump cards for this event. Sartorial smarty Nicole Kidman may just have out-matched all the fashion mavens with her ace at The Paperboy photocall, earlier today. The actress appeared in a sublimely simple blood-orange Antonio Berardi shift (the photo on the left), which is so classic and elegant that it hurts our teeth. Paired with deep maroon kitten heels, minimal makeup which showed off her radiant skin and her strawberry-blond hair, Nicole has just climbed to the top of our best-dressed list.
What’s so hilarious is that her co-stars, Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron — who are no slouches in the wardrobe department, either — look like they can’t believe their eyes. We’re not too surprised that the Zefron looks blown away. We already know how much Zac enjoyed filming his sex scenes with Nicole for the movie. This is a second style win for her in a row at Cannes. The cast met up yesterday as well to talk to Le Grand Journal about the film. They also had dinner together, with Kidman’s husband, Keith Urban, later on the beach, as you can see in the photograph on the right. Nicole wowed in a cream, very ladylike L’Wren Scott dress with a maroon belt. Like we said, she’s owning that best-dressed list and we couldn’t be happier.

While a low-key Kanye West and a not-so-low-key Kim Kardashian partied it up on P.Diddy‘s boat in Cannes the day before yesterday, we were waiting for them to make a bad-ass appearance together sans other celebrities taking the attention away. We love us some Kimye! The couple made their grand entrance at Palm Beach in Cannes, where West was debuting his short film, Cruel Summer, yesterday to a group of approximately 200 people. Jay-Z was in attendance too, as was Kid Cudi, who’s in the film. Beyonce, however, was not. Could that be because of the rumored feud with Kim, we wonder?
But none of the star power with or without could take away from the color-coordinated glory that was Kanye and his best girl. Kim squeezed herself into a pretty low-cut, tiny white and gold Balmain mini-dress. For some strange reason, she decided to wear black boots along with it. If the dress looks familiar to you, it’s because Zoe Saldana wore it to the Miami screeing of Colombiana last year. We put it to a vote then, and most of you loved it and a lot of you were split over it, because of the white train Saldana kept, converting it into a mullet dress. We’re happy Kim detached the excess fabric, but it still looks very tight. Kanye kept it cazh in a cream blazer and T-shirt with jeans. They wore the same outfits as they partied at the Baoli club later at night too. These two are going to take over the world, guys.

This girl! On The Road premiered at the Cannes Film Festival today, and Kristen Stewart managed to bring the hotness in real life and in the film, as you can plainly see by her trip down the red carpet with costars like Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Dunst and, of course, her man friend eternal Robert Pattinson. Okay, so yes, they are all incredibly beautiful movie stars. We know that’s sort of a prerequisite, but still! Kristen was looking particularly lovely, in our opinion.
But how are we so sure that KStew was similarly smoking in the film? Check out the latest clip from the movie below, which starts immediately after KStew’s character makes an unsuccessful move for costar Sam Riley‘s junk. Plus, there’s all the nudity! Stewart told press at the festival that when it came to acting while topless for the film, the actress “wanted to do it.” Said KStew, “I love pushing. I love scaring myself. I’ve always wanted to get as close to an experience as I could.” “I just want a house, a baby, you know, something normal. I really do want that,” her On The Road character claims. Sorry, but we are way past normal, girl.
When P. Diddy throws a party, everyone comes. When Diddy throws a party on a boat in Cannes, you’d better believe that they’d come pouring in. He’s like the entertainment ring master and really knows how to make a splash — pun, intended. A clutch of celebrities dropped in for the bash, most of them casually barefoot. High heels and wooden planks don’t go particularly well together. Spotted wearing black were Michelle Rodriguez and Benicio del Toro, the latter of whom kept trying to dodge cameras. Adrien Brody was relaxed in jeans and a jacket, while Kelly Brook made two wardrobe changes — one while arriving, and one while onboard. Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Nicky Hilton added starlet glamour, and we’re pretty sure Tara Reid would like to be included in that group. Kim wore a gown that generously showed off her curves, of course. Head on over to the gallery to see the stars in action.

The many moods of Kristen Stewart. Will we ever get bored with them? We think not. The photographs above range from her arriving at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival yesterday in the afternoon, dressed in a sheer — or was that only because of the flashbulbs? — tank top, jeans and trademark sneakers. But then, as the pictures in the middle and on the right show, she glammed up and looked more sunny today, for the photocall for On The Road at the festival. We’re loving those crazy Balenciaga pants on her, especially because she went simple on top, wearing a white tank and black blazer. Balenciaga really has turned into the go-to designer for her, and probably not just because she’s on their payroll now. She posed with co-star Kirsten Dunst, who looked lovely in a white lace Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2012 dress with Charlotte Olympia pumps.
The two look so chill together that we almost forgot that Kristen was in a pretty bad mood as she got into her car at the airport yesterday. How do we know this? Well, the picture of her below, flipping the bird at the paparazzi, makes her feelings crystal clear.
