There were lots of pretty dresses at Cannes this year, more than the Oscars I think, and since I have a moment to faff, and also my period which legitimizes all manner of timepass, here are my humble opinions:

Our Indian ladiz did quite well. Sonam has become the one to watch. For example:

I did not love the dress, but it is striking. The main thing I dislike is her hair. It’s a weird shade of brown.

But then she did this:

The big bird look did not impress. She also did a number of overdressed appearances at things. Thankfully she finished with this:

Then there was Aishwarya who has discovered a striking shade of lipstick.

Then there was Katrina Kaif also in red. Some thought it was too much, but I think it worked. Uncle Oscar is always a good choice. Except she might have kept her hair black.

Speaking of desi stars, for once Mindy Kaling did herself justice:

Closer to my neck of the woods, the Chinese actresses always tend to be impeccable but safe. But I loved this one:

I also really liked Charlotte Casiraghi’s dress, though I think someone else might have given it more pizazz. I remember reading this Vogue article rhapsodizing about how gorgeous her lips are and I could only think um, people will fawn over royalty no matter what.

Speaking of royalty of the fashion kind, we can always rely on Queen Cate. Everyone was going gaga about this one:

But I much preferred this:

Much as I love the glamour of it all, this is not on.
