I know that I shouldn't feed this thread, but since the Cannes festival will have a red carpet event every day for ten days, some of you might want to keep track. (They change the red carpet every single day. (I wonder how it is recycled.)
Ha ha, Bixa. The experiment with the curling iron was moderately successful, and my toes are sporting a pretty rose-colored polish. I’ve used a self-tanning lotion on my legs since my sister confirms that no one wears hose anymore. And if neither of my frocks are right, my sister has a closet full of dresses she has offered to lend me.
I almost WAS a knockout! Yesterday we were pruning evergreens and as Mr. Kimby’s loppers sliced through a thick branch it swung my direction and clipped me on the temple, giving me a small cut and instant swelling! I got ice on it right away, and have been using arnica gel 3-4 times a day. Hopefully I won’t get a black eye…
It looks as though most of the designers decided to save fabric at the top and overdo it at the bottom. The absolute worst is the one with the sort of knots attached to straps above a skirt that is too far down. I can't face looking for it by going through the pictures again.
Yes, Bixa, that's the one I meant. I agree about this last one too. My thoughts on seeing those extremely large fluffy dresses is "How are they going to fit in a seat at the cinema to watch the movie?".
Things sure have changed since pregnant women had to get their clothes from Omar the Tentmaker. But, I agree that outfit is vulgar. I saw one picture where the boyfriend had his hand on the women's belly -- just to show it was his I guess.

Apparently France has not descended into the depths of silly-ass pregnancy photo shoots. I've ranted elsewhere about the moronic habit of Today's Young Women in stroking and holding their pregnant abdomens a la the excruciating Megan Markle. Look, bimbos -- it's not a magic lantern nor can the baby fall out if you don't hold it. Pregnancy shoots carry this inane self-regard several steps further. The expectant mother is photographed in one of those places where pregnant women enjoy hanging out, like the woods. Then she is repeatedly shot in soft focus as she beams beatifically at her own stomach, which is uncovered and which she is holding. This can also be done in dressed up mode, with lots of poses of the happy couple. They're often shown standing, with "baby daddy" helping The Bearer of New Life hold up her baby bump.
And within a week of delivery, these same models and celebrities will be starving themselves and undergoing torture from their personal trainers to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies so they can strut around in revealing clothes and bikinis.
