Uma Thurman’s Killer Cannes Fashion

The woman with the hardest job during the Cannes film festival is Kill Bill actress Uma Thurman.

Brave Uma is on the judging panel, responsible for choosing which films will win the prestigious Palme D’Or.

And this means she has to attend at least one premiere a night plus sponsors lunches and fashion photocalls during the day – a wardrobe nightmare! Staying fresh and glamorous in the humid temperatures of the South of France is no easy task.

Fortunately Uma’s started on a great note, modelling a succession of stunning dresses from the opening night film Midnight In Paris through to Pirates of The Caribbean through to the Algerian film Outside The Law.

Check out the divine white maxi dress that Uma wore to the Pirates premiere. The film’s star Penelope Cruz must have been envious at Uma stealing the limelight!

According to film industry insiders, Uma’s using not one but two of her own stylists from the states plus she is consulting style experts from Chopard. As Chopard are the official jewellery sponsors of the Cannes Film Festival, they’ve enlisted fashion experts to advise what outfits to wear with certain jewellery pieces.

No wonder she looked picture perfect at the Pirates premiere with such a big team behind her. Now they’ve done the hard work, we can all see that white maxi dresses can look stunning at a summer party.

You can get a killer white look like Uma’s from Very  – perhaps try theFearne Cotton chiffon cape maxi dress

Or the Mint velvet layered maxi dress has a tight upper half with a floaty a-line maxi skirt that is super flattering and disguises larger hips and bums.

The Coleen tiered white cotton maxi dress is more cool and casual so you can wear it from day to night if necessary.

For night-time, just add some statement jewellery and heels.

Uma’s back to work after the Cannes Film festival and we’ll next see her in a film called Bel Ami alongside Twilight’s Robert Pattinson. Bet it will be weird for her to take directions from the film’s wardrobe department rather than super glam stylists!
