I remember the first time I saw the title “Socialite” used to describe a person. I was thumbing through an issue of Vogue magazine and there it was, in a caption under the photo of an immaculately dressed woman. Where did I go wrong?

So, as I was saying, I should be at Cannes, but instead, I am sitting in my office on JHU’s Homewood campus, staring out the window at the crappy, dreary weather. Life is not fair.
So far, my hands down favorite look from Cannes is Thandie Newton’s Star Wars dress at the film’s premiere at the festival.
In all honesty, the entire crew polished up real nice for the red carpet.
Now on to the other show stoppers at Cannes.
