Cannes really brings out the best in people. For the past few years, either Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie or both have had high-profile premieres at the film festival, which then becomes the event at Cannes. The couple radiate glamor and grace in a way that no one else does, celeb couple or otherwise, and this yearthe “Inglorious Basterds” premiere was no different.

At the film premiere, the reigning king and queen of Cannes did not disappoint the hundreds of photographers clamoring to take their picture. Easygoing and poised, the couple looked smashing. Brad wore a traditional bow tie tuxedo, while Angelina chose a pale pink draped dress and bright red lipstick. 


Robert Pattinson also attracted attention in his modern black tietux and trademark tousled hair. And — OME! — in case you hadn’t heard this morning’s news, the actor is auctioning off kisses to raise money for the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 Cocktail Party in Cannes.


The only gown I had a hard time with was Sharon Stone’s black number. Her body is amazing — especially those legs, which are definitely shown off in this dress — but all that business in the back? I can’t get behind that.
