Festival de Cannes 2013

Cannes Film Festival 2013 is in full swing and I'm just trying catch up on all the latest news today. 'The Great Gatsby' opened the Festival on Wednesday and I actually went to see this film myself when it premiered here on Thursday - big disappointment! I had been looking forward to this one for such a long time (who hasn't?!) There had been a bunch of Baz Luhrmann films I really enjoyed in the past but I think 'The Great Gatsby' was a bit of a miss. The first hour of the film (and Tobey Maguire's entire performance) was a complete snoozefest and a lot of the 3D stuff didn't really work for me either. I think Leonardo DiCaprio is a great choice to play Jay Gatsby but I wish he could have done so in a different film. Anyway, red carpet wise it apparently was a rainy opening night for the Festival but that didn't stop Film Festival jury member Nicole Kidman from shining in her amazing Dior Couture dress, she was by far my favourite of the night. You can watch a video of that evening below. Other red carpet favourites so far: Samantha Barks in Dior and Audrey Tautou in Yin Yiqing Couture. Now, as for dresses I would still like to see on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet this week: THIS Alexis Mabille Couture dress, THIS Alexander McQueen dress, THIS J. Mendel dress and THIS Elie Saab Couture dress.
