Maggie Gyllenhaal has always had an interesting relationship with fashion. On the one hand, the White House Down star never looks a mess, but on the other, she never quite resembles your typical "celeb on a red carpet." Case in point: These two looks worn back-to-back during her Cannes film promotion.
Both the ruffled Chloe frock and the beaded Valentino gown have a Hollywood-by-way-of-Brooklyn feel. We can't decide if we're partial to the light, white effect or the moody blues and greys of the floor-length look.
The sweet, flirty effect on the cream colored dress is really lovely against Maggie's new platinum 'do, but we'd love the look more if she'd gone with a more formal footwear option. The flat sandals just make this frock look like the world's most formal beach cover-up.
That's no match for the gorgeous detail on the striped stunner at right. The deeper colors don't quite highlight this newly blonde beauty's hair as much, but the overall effect is much more glam, making it our definite pick.
What's your take?
