2012 Cannes Red Carpet

Posted on June 3, 2012

I’ve finally had some time to compile photos of the latest Cannes film festival and I found that the trends in black tie seem much the same as with the recent Hollywood awards ceremonies.  Namely, conservative interpretations continue to dominate as does the absence of waist coverings (and the resulting abundance of  shirt navels peeking out beneath the dinner jacket’s button).  In regards to neckwear, the elegant bow tie continues to battle it out with the pedestrian four-in-hand.
