82 women plan silent protest at Cannes Film Festival red carpet

Scene from Fahrenheit 9/11 by Michael Moore Cannes Film Festival 2018: Kangana Rananut looks ravishing in a sequinned Sabyasachi saree inspired by 'starry skies'

If the bold, lovely and barely-there attire of this year's Met Gala wasn't enough to scratch your sartorial itch, then you can rejoice in knowing the world's most picturesque red carpet has just commenced. "What has been so marvelous is the bravery of this group of people has allowed it to happen all over the world".

And, the beauty who has disappointed us highly is none other than Huma Qureshi.

Huma looked like a vision in white, and her decision to wear a desi creation for her Cannes debut is a start in the right direction.

Moore also spoke about the gender swap in her upcoming project "After the Wedding" which is an adaptation of the Danish Oscar-nominated film being penned down by her husband Bart Freundlich.


The Guardian quotes Blanchett saying, "a few years ago there were only two [female directors in competition], the selection committee now has more women on board than in previous years, which will obviously change the lens through which the films are chosen".

The model and the singer joined forces at the event held at Palais des Festivals during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 11) in France. "Only one. It's not only cinema, and it's not only in Cannes", he said.

Presenting her new film Everybody Knows by Iran's Asghar Farhadi at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, Penelope Cruz told reporters that she and Javier Bardem made a point of not taking their personal life to the set, or their work home with them. "It was cool to hear", he said.
