According to many the festival at Cannes didn't really begin until yesterday, when Penelope Cruz set aside a bout with food poisoning to make an appearance at the various photo ops for her new Pedro Almodovar movie 'Broken Embraces.' Poor thing, it took a lot of good acting to muster up a smile in the face of distracting stomach cramps. According to even more people, the festival didn't actually begin until a dapper looking Brad and nearly naked Angelina swept into Cannes to promote Brad's new Quentin Tarantino film 'Inglorious Basterds.' Angelina wore a nude colored slit to there and backless Versace gown, but at least she looked less skeletal than usual, and a bit more robust thanks to a bright red pout.

Gorgeous black/white looks at the Amfar evening gala (although Claudia Schiffer needed some major help in the makeup department).
I'm not a big fan of cornflower blue for eveningwear. Besides, designer Donatella Versace looks like the bride of Chucky, Liz Hurley's prom dress bored me so much I almost fell asleep, and redhead model Lily Cole's gown looked more like an ill-fitting bathing suit with a chiffon cover-up attached.
At the after-party, Brad and Angie looked a tad worse for wear, aka slightly drunk and delirious, as they mingled with Hors d'oeuvres and party revelers. I wonder who's babysitting?
