We’d like to get our hands on the invite for the BAFTA Awards. Did some fancy font cause the stars to mistake “Formal” for “Frumpy”? We hope that was reason so many Best Dressed regulars bombed on the fashion front.
Newcomer Carey Mulligan‘s floral gown wouldn’t have been terrible if it was kept to a single floor-length layer. French darling Audrey Tautou‘s 80s-inspired bubblegum pink frock paired with a red purse and pumps was harsh on the eyes. A pouty Kristen Stewart hid her lust-worthy legs in an unflattering white Chanel gown while unsuccessfully hiding her relationship with Twilight-costar Robert Pattinson. Kate Winslet channeled 1994 in a cut-out black number. Our feelings are anything but Up in the Air about Anna Kendrick‘s ill-fitting yellow dress. Overall consensus? Yuck.
Here’s hoping the A-listers step up their game for the Oscars on March 7th. [Photos: Getty Images]

As the annual Cannes Film Festival gets underway, gorgeous actresses are arriving to screenings and parties in their finest. While we can expect to see our American red carpet regulars, like Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson, we’ll also be exposed to silver screen beauties of the French persuasion, like Roxane Mesquida, Aissa Maiga, and Virginie Ledoyen. This year, instead of moving along to the familiar faces, let’s take a minute to appreciate the “tres belle” ladies de France. Here are some of our favorite Frenchies on recent Cannes red carpets.

Cannes Film Festival is an opportunity for industry insiders (and a few lucky hangers-on) to preview some of the year’s most anticipated films. The screenings of 2009 include Heath Ledger‘s final onscreen appearance, a Quentin Tarantino nazi flick, and a visually stunning Pixar comedy.
Here are the films the South of France is buzzing about, some of which will battle it out for The Palm D’Or.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Director Terry Gilliam‘s tale of a traveling theater troupe has received much unpredicted build-up, due to the passing of Heath Ledger during production. Three A-list actors stepped in to fill his role: Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell. We’ll see it just to figure out how that plays out.
Cannes sweetheart Quentin Tarantino returns with a violent (surprising?) film set in WWII. Brad Pitt leads a group of American “basterds,” whose mission is to intimidate the Third Reich.
