Russian model Natasha Poly has made her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival once again, and her fans on the tFS forums are delighted as per usual. For the premiere of the Saint Laurent movie, the L'Oreal spokesmodel donned a gorgeous black Oscar de la Renta gown. 

"I adore her dress at the red carpet. It's funny, pretty and still glamorous. It's something I would wear if I have to attend," commented jexxica.

IceePriincess shared similar sentiments. She posted, "I love the fact that she can make a classic-black dress into something very refreshing and not boring. And I love her make up at Cannes."

"It's been forever since I've been on this thread; she looks ravishing at Cannes!" exclaimed KKnardi.

But Ms. Poly's attendance at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival was not the only news that kept her fans buzzing all weekend. It was also revealed that Natasha is set to star in the next Gucci ad campaign, according to WWD. Since the Pre-Fall campaign has already been released, it is safe to assume that Natasha nabbed the Fall/Winter campaign. 

"Finally!!!!! SHE'S BACK!!!! I missed her so much for Gucci!" was miguelalmeida's reaction to the news.

Wear Your Instagram Pictures with Adidas

If there is one footwear trend that has won us all over again this season it is trainers, and what could be better than Adidas letting you put your artistic input into each pair? The footwear brand has tapped into our pretty overwhelmingly obvious love of Instagram by launching a new app that will let you print your photos straight onto a pair of ZX Flux trainers all just by pressing a few buttons. So if you think of yourself as a bit of a photographer or just want another way to show off pictures of your lunch, then this is literally the most perfect way to show the world.

Adidas launched the campaign on its Instagram page today asking followers, "ARE YOU READY? Take the #zxflux to the next level with the ultra innovative photo print app from #miadidas." Going on to tell them, "Print your favourite photos straight onto one of 2014's hottest silhouettes and make a statement on your sneakers like never before. Rolling out on iPhone and Android from August 2014. The possibilities are limitless."

Whilst we are all accustomed to the idea of personalisation with brands like Nike having promoted this through its Nike IDs that can be customised to create the perfect trainer from a vast range, Adidas is the first brand to let you print your photos straight onto the shoe. So while you may be restricted to one style now, there are unlimited design options.

The Adidas Photo Print app will be available on iPhone and Android from August.

Cruelty is Not Fashion Commentary: One Woman’s Awful Experience on the Red Carpet

Sarah Millican Bafta Dress

When she was first nominated for a 2013 Bafta Award, Sarah Millican was flattered and proud. But she didn't know that she was in for a nasty surprise. Appearing on the red carpet in a floral John Lewis dress, the British comedian became a target for the bored Internet trolls who make hatred a hobby. Now, one year later, Millican has come forward with a frank essay about the vile treatment she was subjected to. Some excerpts:

On choosing a dress that fit her figure:

"I danced into John Lewis knowing that a) they have lots of mini shops in there, and b) I can fit it into most of them. Fancy expensive designer shops are out for me as I’m a size 18, sometimes 20, and I therefore do not count as a woman to them."

Describing what it's like for a normal person to walk the red carpet:

"The red carpet is very intimidating, although I garnered a few laughs when I replied to the 'Who are you wearing?' question with 'John Lewis' and the 'Where did you get your dress?' question with 'The Trafford Centre.' I had a few awkward photos taken by the wall of paparazzi. Awkward as I’m not a model (I’m a comedian), have never learnt how to pose on a red carpet (I’m a comedian) and I have pretty low self-esteem."

Crying in the car on the way home:

"I went onto Twitter and it was like a pin to my excitable red balloon. Literally thousands of messages from people criticising my appearance. I was fat and ugly as per usual. My dress (the one that caused ooohs in a department store fitting room?) was destroyed by the masses. I looked like a nana, my dress was disgusting, was it made out of curtains, why was I wearing black shoes with it. I cried. I cried in the car."

Why all the hate?

"I’m sorry. I thought I had been invited to such an illustrious event because I am good at my job. Putting clothes on is such a small part of my day. They may as well have been criticising me for brushing my teeth differently to them."

And finally, a perfect plan for revenge:

"I made a decision the following day that should I ever be invited to attend the Baftas again, I will wear the same dress. To make the point that it doesn’t matter what I wear; that’s not what I’m being judged on. With the added fun of answering the red carpet question, 'Where did you get your dress?' with 'Oh, it’s just last year’s, pet.'"

There are three vital lessons for all here: 

  1. Just because you don't know someone doesn't mean they aren't realMean Girls was a satire, not a guidebook. 
     
  2. Cruelty is not fashion commentary — And it's also not a good look. 
     
  3. Women are not required to be fashionable or pretty. Women are not required to conform their appearance to the beauty standard — Sexism, objectification, patriarchy: let's collectively try a little harder to stop feeding into all of that stuff, okay?

Grace Coddington’s Instagram Suspended, Then Restored This Weekend

No one knows how serious the team at Instagram is about nudity better than Rihanna, whose @badgalriri profile is still suspended after she posted a few photos of her very naked Lui magazine shoot a few weeks ago. Grace Coddington is the latest to feel the ire of IG, only less than a week after joining the social media site. On Thursday, she posted her first to Instagram, a nudie self-portrait of herself sunbathing, to promote her Paddle8 "No Clothes" auction. By Saturday, her profile was deleted for violating Instagram's "no nude" policy.

If you think it sounds ridiculous to punish someone for posting cartoon boobs–which were little more than two demi-circles with dots–to their profile, you're not the only one. Fans and friends called out IG for the misstep, which got the social media site's attention. They restored her account, admitting to The Cut that they messed up. "When our team processes reports from other members of the Instagram community, we occasionally make a mistake," they said in a statement. "In this case, we wrongly removed content and worked to rectify the error as soon as we were notified. We apologize for any [inconvenience.]"

Thankfully, Coddington's profile is back up, and she's still 'gramming. Her latest is a drawing of her two cats, one sitting up with a black bar across his no-no region, with the caption: "Good grief Pumpkin, Mother drew a nude selfie for her very first Instagram. No wonder they shut her down……she is much fatter than that." Good one, Grace.

Hopefully, the folks at Instagram will extend this kindness to poor Rihanna, whose marked absence on our timelines has been pretty depressing…

Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman Up the Glamour Game at Cannes

nicole-kidman-cate-blanchett-cannes

WENN

If there’s one film festival that guarantees you gowns so ornate you probably have to squint when you look at them in real life, it’s Cannes.

Perhaps it’s partly due to the fact that Hollywood’s elite are ramping up their style game to detract from film controversy – both Grace of Monaco and the Nina Simone biopic have attracted awkward levels of scorn from critics and the families of their real life titular characters — but this year’s fashion is particularly on form. And Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman are far ahead of the pack.

Firstly, the Armani Privé Kidman wore to Grace of Monaco’s premiere last week, which also served as the festival’s opening ceremony. We had a feeling she’d be making a confident choice in light of the film’s chilly reception, and this heavily embellished creation is a distraction of the best sorts. Props for also adding very expensive amounts of Harry Winston bling (a diamond bracelet and diamond cluster earrings) despite the fact the dress is glittery (and probably heavy) enough.

Cate Blanchett first showed up at the Chopard Trophy, where she wore a silvery, sheer Valentino with metallic floral lace embroidery to present awards to Adèle Exarchopoulos and Logan Lerman. That would have served as perfectly satisfying red carpet wear for the premiere of How to Train Your Dragon 2, the animation for which she lent her voice, but if it’s possible, we love the bejeweled Givenchy column she showed up in. In a land of ball gowns, the pleated chiffon skirt is even more unexpected than Kidman’s Armani, and the scaly bodice is probably the best example of dressing thematically you’ll see all premiere season.
