Julianne Moore is spring, personified in Christian Lacroix Couture at the premiere of Blindness at Cannes on May 14th. The gown rides the line between the fanciful fairytale gown of girlhood dreams and a gawdy mess, but Moore carries it off looking like a good old fashioned movie star. The dress does have a lot going on. Feathers, gems, runching and flowers on top of an unusual shade of faded chartreuse. Dance comes to mind with an elongated sugar plum fairy meets can-can dancer feel. Black feathers add contradictory weight to her shoulders, giving her a vulture-esque appearance, but this edgy element is also what keeps the gown from being sickeningly sweet. Moore grounds the airy frippery with dark strappy shoes and a velvet clutch.
