The Cannes Film Festival is not just a film competition, but a red carpet battle to see who can bring the chicest and most glam red carpet style to the French Riviera. From Angelina Jolie in Versace to Anna Mouglalis in Karl Lagerfeld to Kerry Washington in Zuhair Murad, these stars really brought it on.

The yachts have pulled up, celebrities have started arriving, and with the hot fashion, positive reviews, and an overjoyed audience at the Up premiere (including Asia Argento,Ã‚Â Giovanni Ribisi,Ã‚Â Robin Wright Penn and Tilda Swinton), the 62nd Cannes Film Festival is off to a great start.
“It’s a terrific family adventure,” The Guardian said. The loud cheers from the typically critical and vocal Cannes audience also echoed the positive response to the animated Pixar film. As the audience watched through colored 3D glasses, there was nothing but clapping and whistling to be heard. Cannes is off to a great start! Check out our gallery of the Up premiere!
This year’s Cannes jury doesn’t run low on glamor. Headed by French actress Isabelle Huppert, the panel includes Asia Argento (found in everything from NC-17 art flicks to Vin Diesel‘s XXX), Robin Wright Penn, and Shu Qi from The Transporter among the international coterie of performers and directors. If their appearance at the festival-opening screening of Up is any indication, we should see them in plenty of beautiful outfits before they pick the Palme d’Or.
Happy Columbus Day, you lucky people who get Monday off from work! The Italian explorer Christopher Columbus braved the murky Atlantic Ocean in search of silk, spices and other wonders of China and India (the countries he was attempting to find). Instead he landed right smack into the Bahamas, a happy accident that eventually resulted in the “discovery” of the good ol’ United States. In honor of this national holiday, Scandalist is exploring Columbus’ homeland and the goods Italy is infamous for — its women.
Which hotties are hopping into Sophia Loren‘s Italian leather shoes and taking over her title as Italy’s prima donna? Peep the pics below and let us know how well we’ve rated these Italian hotties after the jump.
Though she’s taken up kabballah and adopted a posh British accent, don’t be fooled: the Motor City mama was born Madonna Ciccone, and raised in a strict Italian-Catholic household. Which may account for some of her rebellion.
