The Cannes Film Festival is seeing some classic red carpet fashion
After the zany Monday that was the Met Gala (with all its campy looks), it’s good to take a breather with the Cannes Film Festival and its typically safe red carpet outfits. Below are some of the best looks from the past few days.
The CFDA honours Barbie with the Board of Directors’ Tribute
Barbie is having a stellar year so far. Aside from celebrating her 60th anniversary with a lineup of “sheroes”, or female role models, the iconic doll is set to be honoured at the CFDA awards with the Board of Directors’ Tribute award.
“For the past six decades, Barbie has inspired and been inspired by fashion and creative communities,” Richard Dickson, president and COO of Mattel said. “Barbie has had the great privilege of collaborating with some of the greatest designers of our time and this award is a moment to celebrate her lasting influence.”
The CFDA Awards will be held on June 3.
Victoria’s Secret cans its televised fashion show
After two decades of spearheading an unrealistic standard for women with their annual fashion shows, Victoria’s Secret has finally made the decision to “re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” Leslie Wexner, CEO of L Brands (the parent company of Victoria’s Secret) said in a statement.
Instead, the lingerie brand will develop another event to market their wares. Whether or not it would accurately reflect the current fashion landscape and demands, only time will tell.
