The Cannes Film Festival has returned with its signature star-studded red carpet. However, this also brings a range of hotly debated red carpet outfits.
From textures to silhouettes and fabric choices, Twitter users were quick to critique what celebrities wore throughout the annual event. Chanel drew particular ire for its dressing of celebrities including Blackpink’s Jennie Kim, while other stars were critiqued for their outfits’ appearance, colors, embellishments and overall fits.
Below, discover the Cannes Film Festival’s worst-dressed celebrities on the red carpet, according to Twitter.
Blackpink member Jennie Kim, also known as “Jennie” — a Chanel house ambassador since 2017 — wore a white minidress with sheer black caped shoulders to HBO Max’s “Idol” premiere, quickly deemed a flop by Twitter users. One user even stated they were “keeping my expectations low for jennie bc i don’t trust chanel at all.”
Brie Larson attended Kering’s Women in Motion Awards during the festival in a sleeveless printed Chanel spring 2023 dress, overlaid with a sheer black feather-accented cape. However, the Oscar-winning actress’ outfit wasn’t favored by Twitter users, one of which compared it to “dressing like grandma.” Another bluntly stated: “Another hideous dress she’s 0 for 5.”
Actress Araya Hargate made waves for her sheer paneled red dress at the premiere of “Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny.” Unfortunately, users quickly slammed her corset-belted outfit as the “worst dress” of the festival.
Aishwarya Rai made headlines for the dramatic nature of her outfit: a silver gown with a draped train and massive folded hooded bodice coated in thin silver sequins, all cinched by a massive black velvet bow. However, the piece drew ire from numerous Twitter users, who deemed the dress her “worst” outfit yet at the festival. “Such a beautiful woman and such awful dresses,” one user stated.
Kika Gomes drew ire from Twitter users for her Cannes ensemble, seen with boyfriend Pierre Gasly: a black paneled dress interwoven with daring bodice and side cutouts cinched by glittering lace-up straps. The Portuguese model and actress’ dress was deemed “ROUGH,” with one user stating the dress appeared “cheap” and “does NOT fit well.”
