Cannes Watch: Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is pretty in pink
The Associated Press
CANNES, France (AP) A fierce wind whipped the Croisette Friday, but it failed to ruffle Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who walked the red carpet for Woody Allen's "Irrational Man" in a knockout pink gown from British couture house Ralph & Russo.
The pop star, "X-Factor" judge and British tabloid favorite formerly known as Cheryl Cole pulled off a look whose diverse elements came together in almost classical harmony.
In front, the thigh-split gown had a floral-covered plunging neckline, but that was outdone by the other side backless, but with a train whose folds of draped fabric lent the look a hint of Greek statuary.
