cannes film festival

A number of female film stars came together to stage a protest against gender discrimination in the industry at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend. 

Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and Selma Hayek were among those who took part in the demonstration on Saturday, which saw a group of actresses and film-makers link arms as they walked the red carpet. 

Speaking to reporters, Cate Blanchette made a powerful speech about the importance of the cause. 

"Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of the industry says otherwise," she declared.

"We are 82 women, representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946. In the same period, 1,688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs.

She went on the shed light on the fact that just two women have been awarded the highest prize at the prestigious film festival while 71 men have received the honour. 

"The prestigious Palme d'Or has been bestowed upon 71 male directors, too numerous to mention by name, but only two female directors." 

All of the festivals female jury members took part in the protest which was described as a "massive milestone towards change." 


Cannes Film Festival is upon us once again, and while it may be all about the movies, we're all pretty interested in the style. 

The celebs were out in force last night to open the festival, and there were more than a few show-stopping dresses on parade.

Kim Kardashian shocked fans last year when she chose affordable make-up for her own wedding day. Her dress had cost €350,000 but her make-up list was full of products we could find in our own make-up bags. And she definitely kicked-off a serious trend. 

Indeed, the Cannes Film Festival was this year predictably full of glitz and glam – and, surprisingly, inexpensive beauty regimes. So even though we may never be able to fork-out for the celebrity attire on display, L'Oréal Paris, official make-up artists of the festival for the 18th year running, has revealed how we too can achieve the very same beauty looks the stars have been rocking in the south of France. 

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini looked effortlessly elegant as usual with her smokey eyes and deep lips.

​Andie Macdowell opted for a subtle, neutral make-up look which complimented her dark hair and detailed dress beautifully.

  • VML So Couture Black
  • Brow Artist Genius Kit Medium/Dark

Naomi Watts went for a very natural make-up look which put emphasis on her gorgeous bouncy hair and chunky jewellery.

  • Butterfly Intenza Black
  • Color Riche 30 Years 136 Flamingo Elegance
  • Elnett Satin Lumiere Supreme Hold


Julianne Moore looked flawless as she went for a sleek hairstyle with a bold lip. Emphasis was on her lips as the rest of her make-up was quite subtle.

The family of Amy Winehouse are not pleased with the new documentary about the life of the late singer.

The documentary, Amy, is set to get its debut screening in May at the Cannes Film Festival, but her family do not want to be associated with it because it is "misleading" and "contains some basic untruths".

A spokesman for the Winehouse family said they "would like to disassociate themselves from the forthcoming film about their much missed and beloved Amy", because they claim that it is "misleading and contains some basic untruths".

They believe the documentary does not show the "huge effort from all concerned to help Amy at all stages".

Winehouse's father, Mitch, 64, told The Sun On Sunday: "I felt sick when I watched it for the first time. Amy would be furious. This is not what she would have wanted." 

The spokesperson also said: "The narrative is formed by the testimony of a narrow sample of Amy's associates, many of whom had nothing to do with her in the last years of her life. Counter views expressed to the filmmakers did not make the final cut." 

The role of Blake Fielder-Civil in Amy's life is also not fully acknowledged. 

The talented singer died in July 2011, aged 27, due to alcohol poisoning, after previous battles with drugs and alcohol
