More gorgeous women of a certain age at the 63rd annual Festival de Cannes. Some barely at the tipping point of 40ish and the others whateverish. A few from last week who have changed their clothes -- can you imagine anyone wearing the same dress twice?
Though the pictures speak volumes, why should I resist an opportunity to add a few words?
We have in the mix today, Emmanuelle Beart with those dreadful lips of hers (well she owns them, but they're not really hers). I interviewed her years ago for the "London Daily Telegraph" Sunday magazine -- pre-lips -- and she was angelically lovely. Also on review is Ornella Muti looking even less like Ornella Muti than last year; Isabelle Huppert who Edith says now appears younger than her daugher; Meg Ryan, what can one say (?) and Nathalie Baye, who resisted for a long time, but finally succumbed. You be the judge for the others.
Valerie Plame with Naomi Watts who portrays the former CIA agent in the film "Fair Game" is every bit as beautiful and glamourous as any movie star. (The film, directed by Sean Penn, was inspired by the sordid affair of her "outing" which you may recall.)
Do enjoy your stroll down the red carpet. I fear our beloved Helen Mirren headed home with her handsome husband. Let's hope she reappears before the Festival finale.
