Women Were Turned Away at Cannes for Not Wearing Heels

The Cannes Film Festival dress code has folks upset after several women attending the affair were allegedly barred from entering the event because of their footwear. According to Screen magazine, a few women in their 50s were turned away at a red carpet screening of Carol because they dared to not show up in stilettos. Of course, heels are uncomfortable for everyone, but there are also women who physically cannot wear them due to health reasons. Seems a little insensitive to exclude them from an event for a medical issue. 

“Someone I know was turned away for wearing nice flats, nothing you would wear to the beach,” a source said. “They were in their 50s. They told her she could go and buy appropriate shoes and come back.” Cannes commented, saying its dress code “rules have not changed throughout the years (tuxedo, formal dress for Gala screenings) and there is no specific mention about the height of the women’s heels as well as for men’s. Thus, in order to make sure that this rule is respected, the Festival’s hosts and hostesses were reminded of it.” If there are no rules about high heels, then why are women being denied entry to the festival for that reason? We guess in Cannes, flats simply aren’t considered formal wear for women. Naturally, the public is none too pleased with this sexist rule.

Chilean-born Australian fashion model and actress Pia Miller says the transition from model to actress hasn’t been an easy path to travel. Catching up with the stunner on the red carpet at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere in Sydney last week, Pia shed a little light on what it’s really like to be a model slashie.

The 31-year-old mother, who has recently joined the cast of Home and Away as policewoman Katrina Chapman, tells theFashionSpot that the move from model to actress has definitely been an “interesting one”. As we’ve seen in the past, not every model who can strut down the catwalk has the acting chops to support a career change like this. “I think that particular transition from model to actor, it takes a lot of work,” she explains.

After winning Dolly magazine’s annual modelling competition in 1998, just one year after world-famous supermodel Miranda Kerr, Pia travelled the world as a successful fashion model before taking acting and voice lessons in 2009 in the hopes of making the leap from editorial spreads to the screen.

Ever-ethereal Australian beauty Cate Blanchett has wowed us all, wearing a custom-made creation from independent British designer Giles Deacon at Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 17. The actress looked effortlessly dazzling in the gown, and designer Giles is pretty chuffed that Cate made such an impact in his namesake label.

Giles said he “couldn’t be happier” with how the dress, which took between 3 weeks and a month to create, has been received on Cate, explaining to the The Telegraph UK that it’s “the most wonderful advert you can probably get”.

Giles Deacon took a step away from his ready-to-wear looks to create the one-of-a-kind Tudor inspired gown for Cate. He created the abstract motif using digital manipulation, which brought this voluminous and eye-catching masterpiece to life. (more…)

Super-hunk Chris Hemsworth, known around the world for his roles in films like The Avengers franchise, has surprised fans and former co-workers by returning to the place where his acting career started, Australia’s own Home And Away.




Chris played Kim Hyde on the long-running soapie from 2004 to 2007, and, when visiting the set in October of last year, the 31-year-old Hollywood star decided that a quick hello just wasn’t going to cut it.


New Idea reports that 
the married father-of-three wasn’t content with just catching up with his former colleagues. Showing how humble and unaffected by international stardom he really is, Chris requested to be featured on the show and jumped in as an extra for a scene at Summer Bay’s local diner. (more…)

Rihanna’s Dior Secret Garden Film Is Everything

IT’S FINALLY HERE. We’ve been waiting with bated breath for the big reveal of Rihanna’s Dior Secret Garden IV fashion film and here it is folks, in all its glory. 

King Louis XIV’s crib never looked so badass until Rihanna stepped in the spot dipped in these luxurious Dior threads. If you can get through this video without saying “yaaas” at least once, then you truly have a heart made of metal. Not only do we get to hear Rih’s new track “If Only for a Night,” in the video, but we also get to watch the singer pose, twirl and strut like the true boss she is through Versailles.

Rihanna is the first black face of Dior, and if this film tells us anything, it’s that she definitely deserves another Dior campaign – and, of course, that Dior needs to also start casting more people of color in their campaigns. Either way, Rihanna looks spectacular and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. 

Watch Riri kill it in the video above.
