Uma Thurman: Cannes Best Dressed List
Jun 07, 2011 - by Megan Turley
Uma Thurman has always been an A-List actress, but at Cannes last month, Uma took her fashion choices to the next level and blew the competition out of the water. Thurman sat alongside Jude Law, Robert De Niro and six others on the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival jury, requiring that she not only watch all 20 films in the competition, but also attend red carpet premiers, photo calls and after-parties in her Cannes best.
Uma's white lace Dolce & Gabbana dress demonstrates just why white is a go-to look for this summer - it's fun, refreshing and easy to dress down or class-up with a good pair of shoes. White was a trend in Thurman's picks for the red carpet throughout Cannes, and included this white Chanel she wore to the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere.
For the opening ceremony and the screening of Woody Allens Midnight in Paris, Uma wore a knockout white, feathered Versace gown that had jaws dropping left and right. She knew it too, because she offered up some absolutely charming quotables to the The Daily Mail UK , saying, I feel so good wearing the dress, I hope I get a chance to dance Its a dress that moves well when you dance. I was doing a quiet little dance all by myself on the carpet just now. We are right there with you!
We love how Uma works with her height to pair adorable flats with long dresses, which is a more comfortable alternative to tall heels and is very on-trend for summer. Uma commented on her height and dressing for Cannes, mentioning, I had to have it made because you know how it is for us tall girls. Its impossible to find anything in a store.
Another notable fashionista that left us dancing for joy was Kirsten Dunst, who emerged from recent acting (and everything else of note) obscurity to not only take home the award for Best Actress for her role in the movie Melancholia, but also secure herself a spot on more than a few Cannes best dressed lists.
