the grande finale: Cannes 2012

First time jury member (and first time member from the world of fashion) Jean-Paul Gaultier doing a Marilyn. We love this.

Punk chick Beth Ditto. We think she is cool and we love the dress. Awesome photo. I didn't know punk chicks don't shave their armpits and have sworn off deodorant. Interesting.

Carole Bouquet was in Cannes presenting her latest film. Remember Alexander Petrovsky's ex-wife in those last episodes of "Sex and the City" while Carrie Bradshaw was annoying the Parisians (and us)? Ms. Bouquet. For James Bond afficionados: the girl with the impossibly shiny long brown hair and piercing blue eyes in "For Your Eyes Only" in 1981: Ms. Bouquet.

Ms. Tautou at the closing ceremony in the rain. She is adorable (sans the "k") and even though she was only there one day, our vote goes to her for most charming and best dressed. More Audrey Tautou here.

Iranian actress Leila Hatami. How fabulous is this? Very. Obviously, we wouldn't wear a taffeta scarf but we suspect Ms. Hatami has her reasons. We always love black and white with a touch of rose.


An honorable mention goes to singer, songwriter and model Sky Ferreira - one of three ladies who turned up at the amFAR event in a non-hooker look.  We would have lost the galoshes thingy but Sky totally rocks the bleached blonde hair, dark eyes and leather look.

Until the next red carpet extravaganza: only in Cannes.
