Cannes 2014: Why Older Ladies Rule On The French Riviera

Cannes 2014: Why Older Ladies Rule On The French Riviera

Cannes is fabulous on many levels. But what we love most is how it champions the older female star

There’s lots to love about the glamathon that’s Cannes. A-lister gazing, dress & jewel droolling plus (this year) Ryan Gosling for starters. But what’s truly great about the Festival de Cannes is how it champions the older lady. Where else would you see a 79-year-old (Sophia Loren) playfully goading the paps? Or a blinged up 56-year-old (Sharon Stone) presiding over the younger gals with her eight-strong entourage?

Certainly nowhere else in the world would you witness a 70-year-old icon (Catherine Deneuve) nonchalantly lighting up a cigarette at a photocall.


 
These grand dames of Hollywood were majestic in their golden youth and it feels lovely to champion their fabulousness and staying power. Vive les matriarches!
