    what’s black and white all over? the cannes red carpet.

    The weather at this year’s Cannes Film Festival has been pretty bleak: rain, rain, and more rain.So maybe that has something to do with the preferred color palette that has emerged the past few days. From the up-and-comers (Carey Mulligan, Rooney Mara), to the established It Girls (Kirsten Dunst, Marion Cotillard) to even the models (Doutzen Kroes), we’ve been seeing a lot of black and white--and that’s about it. Indeed, in some cases the only color to an outfit comes with a pair of bright heels, a la Zoe Saldana, or a bold lipstick.Which doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing; we actually love how it gives even the most simple of dresses a bold, graphic twist. Is it a sign of things to come? We wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the year the only real color we see at major events is the red carpet itself.
