Cannes festival - 2017 made a bet on sex?

There were times when the Cannes festival was considered a news occasion only for fans of serious cinema (by the way, social dramas about topical issues of modern society are the main winners of this competition in nine cases out of ten) and French actors and actresses who, unlike their Hollywood colleagues can easily declare on the red carpet in sweaters and jeans. The gradual “proclaiming” of the Cannes festival began just a few years ago with cooperation with major cosmetic and jewelry brands - the latter demanded that beautiful long-legged models, far from the author’s clever cinema, should also defile along the red carpet. And what do we have in the end today, when the opening of the Cannes Film Festival is on the agenda in 2017? These same models have won the podium with their presence, all media outlets discuss their outfits, films and contenders for victory fade into the background, and the word “sexy” becomes the key word in the news about this movie marathon.Concurrently, this word seems to describe the new dress code of the Cannes festival, which hints that you will need to relax on the red carpet. Otherwise, they will not write about you or even ... will not notice.

If modesty is, in principle, no longer an epithet for describing uniforms for ceremonial events with red paths today, the 2017 Cannes Film Festival unexpectedly set an even more radical line: too open and provocatively sexy outfits became in fact a new norm. Forget everything that you knew before about the deep neckline and open backs: in 2017, evening dresses show more naked body than some swimsuits and peignoirs.

Let's start with the red carpet of the opening of the festival, the main character of which could be Monica Bellucci as a guest hostess and host of the evening. But Monica issued her portion of provocation later, already inside the Palace of Festivals and Congresses, merging into a passionate kiss with her co-host, actor and comedian Alex Luts. And on the red carpet everyone discussed only two characters - Bella Hadid and Susan Sarandon.The difference in age between them is 50 years, that is, Susan is not even a mother, but Bella is a grandmother, which did not prevent them from choosing practically identical dresses with a deep neckline and a high slit on the side. For the sake of increasing the number of subscribers on Instagram, Bella even in no way originally reiterated her last year’s bloop - she lit up her pants during the passage along the red carpet at the Cannes festival.

However, PR on the topic of sex on this for Bella did not end: she also posted on Instagram is not the most modest video from the yacht, where she embraces and touches another model guest of the Cannes festival - 2017 Emily Ratakovski. By the way, despite the fact that Emily herself loves to be naked on Instagram and show off her gorgeous breasts, the starting model Lily-Rose Depp and actress Asia Argento "sang" on the red carpet of the Ratakovski festival in her even not transparent nightie. The first one went straight to the stage of the film event in an absolutely translucent white dress made of thin fabric, and the second appeared on the red carpet in a cunning lace dress that completely exposed the chest in the light of flashes. Against the backdrop of such bold attacks of mini-dresses, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Robin Wright simply look the most chaste outfits in the world.

Behave yourself? No, not at the Cote d'Azur! Dress up by age and cover your knees after 40? Susan Sarandon, and with her the new first lady of France, Brigitte Macron, who, by the way, could easily shine in Cannes-2017, these incomprehensible who invented the rules are not at all interested. Hide nipples, unless you participate in mass protests of the #freethenipple movement? Why, if the models on the catwalks do not do it, if the designers do not provide dresses with linings, and besides, in the cinema the woman's naked breasts appear in almost every other film? Avoid the notorious dress malfunction (this is when you put on a “dangerous” outfit and inadvertently showed more than you need)? Why, if it, on the contrary, only attracts even more attention to your person? The Cannes Festival - 2017 clearly hints to us that depravity is not a sin at all, but rather even the engine of the film trade.
