Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie steal the show at Cannes
Split rumours, what split rumours? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie put on a united front last night, and silenced those persistent break-up whispers, by stealing the show in Cannes.
Hollywood’s favourite couple took to the red carpet for the premiere of Pitt’s new movie, Inglourious Basterds, and like previous Cannes appearances, their attendance was the talk of the town.
Jolie has pulled out some of her best red carpet looks at the festival in previous years – think that canary yellow Emanuel Ungaro gown in 2007, and the flowing green Max Azria dress she wore while heavily pregnant in 2008 – and this year’s appearance was no exception.
The mother-of-six looked sublime in a Versace Atelier gown, in one of the season’s hottest hues – nude. But it was the detailing which really caught our attention. A thigh-high split flashed the actress’s never-ending pins, while beauty wise it was all about old school Hollywood glamour, from her cascading curls to the rich ruby lips.
And though Brangelina were clearly the stars of the show, the premiere was one of the most star-studded the festival has seen to date.
Pitt’s co-star Diane Kruger was ethereal in a white backless Marchesa gown, with floral motifs and a sweeping train. Understated, yet oh-so-elegant, the actress completed her look with a chic side-swept bun.
Dita Von Teese, meanwhile, added to the Cannes couture count, in a monochrome Christian Dior spring ’09 dress. The full-skirted design was simply divine.
