The Cannes red carpet is a lot like the Oscar red carpet—but while the L.A. version gets rolled up and stored away after a single night, in Cannes, the photo ops go on and on. The stars this year have shown gone big. And in the case of one particular detail, we mean “big” literally. This week at the fest, some of the biggest names have selected high-drama gowns with exaggerated detailing around the hips. For the premiere of Tree of Life, Angelina Jolie set a million flashbulbs blazing with her OTT gown from Atelier Versace, in a deep, rich brown with a thigh-high slit and a gathered hip detail. Fashion favorite Zoe Saldana took a few of the same elements in a different direction: She also opted for a strapless bodice and a bigger-is-better hip detail, but her Armani Privé offered a sleeker, slimmer silhouette and a pop of color with a candy-striped skirt. Three’s the trend with Anna Dello Russo at Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief show. The Vogue Nippon editor wore custom Moschino in layered white, complete with detailing on both hips. On her head, one of her many fascinators, this one topped with stalks of wheat. It seems that following cherries and pineapples, ADR’s headgear is now journeying into grains. She’s well on her way to offering a balanced diet. Up next: cheese? Packers fans, your moment may be nigh.
Meet DIS magazine, the upstart publication not afraid to style women’s underwear worn below the knee or use small bags of marijuana as earrings. Admittedly, we’re afraid of those things, but we’re all for creative boundary-pushing. [T]
The latest Brit to make the westward commute: William Tempest, who will show his Spring ’11 collection in New York this season. Twenty-four-year-old Tempest has already won fans like Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss at home, so odds are he’ll find a few on this side of the pond, too. [Vogue U.K.]

Moschino is all about diversifying these days, which helps explain its new Maison Moschino hotel in Milan and the luggage Rosella Jardini debuted on the Cheap & Chic runway. Now you can bring the brand home, too: The customized Philippe Starck “Mademoiselle” chairs by Kartell that decorate several of the hotel’s rooms are now available by special order. The label may be branching out, but it’s staying true to its design signatures; the Kartell chair is covered in the same bows Jardini liberally applies to her ready-to-wear. Fair warning to those who’d spruce up their own maisons: Like all special orders, this one’s more Chic than Cheap.
