This week is Cannes Film Festival (a best dressed list is in the making), a week renowned for being full of the latest and greatest in fashion. They have to be pretty peeved that Penelope Cruz has stolen all the style, eh? Last night, she flew solo at the “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” premiere in Munich, Germany while wearing this lustful red Armani Privé Spring/Summer 2011 gown. Differing from the runway version, the actress took the dress from off-shoulder straps to long sleeved and I’ve never seen a sexier alteration.
As a model with some of the highest highs (named It Girl by Anna Wintour) and lowest lows (ridiculed for becoming a “big girl”, though thin by ‘normal’ standards), I am ridiculously happy to see Gemma Ward on the April cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. While she has no plans to return to the modelling world, Peter Ash Lee‘s photo has captured the beauty of a woman who has kept on carrying on, and will soon be making a big-screen splash in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Well, Gemma Ward has gone against all odds and landed the role as Tamara (Queen of the Mermaids) in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” opposite Johnny Depp. On the cast list, she is just two spots away from female lead Penelope Cruz. Woohoo, Ward!
