So although I have already started planning for my upcoming trip to Vegas and the opportunities I will have to wear those red feather high heels that have been sleeping in my closet since I bought them 4 years ago, that fashion opportunity pales in comparison to the GLEE of calling up your best friend fashion designer because you need some clothes to wear to Cannes.

For this post, please indulge me in looking at some beautiful clothes from the film festival in the South of France. But please think of this as you continue —  instead of being depressed that you will probably never be able to afford a white feather Chanel Couture gown (approximate cost $15,000 – $20,000), keep in mind that if you really want feathers on your clothes there is probably a Michael’s within a 5-mile radius and if you use your hot glue gun strategically, most people will never know the difference.

Let’s start with Uma Thurman: A goddess! I hope that Ethan Hawke looks in the mirror everyday and wonders what the hell he was thinking. Here she is in Armani Prive (blue) and Chanel (white).

Here is Kirsten Dunst in Chanel. Hm, I think I have a feather fetish this post…

Next: Gwen Stefani first in her own label (L.A.M.B.) and then in Stella McCartney. Isn’t it nice to see her without all that blasted red lipstick!!! And, jeez, more feathers??? What is up with that?

Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani "The Tree of Life" premieres during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

And let’s not forget the men folk. Here is Ryan Gosling in Ferragamo. (GAD has seen Ryan and swears he looks like a hobo but it looks like he cleaned up for the cameras okay)

  1. What a fantastic way to start the day! Haute couture embellished with feathers, fabulous.

  2. Adore Uma! And you are forgiven for a feather fetish as these offerings are simply too fabulous. God, I wish I could afford Chanel (and had Uma’s body).

  3. I concur with Patty. Need the Chanel. Also loving Gwen’s LAMB dress. But most of all, I need the body to be able to wear it. Where can I find that on sale?
