Wowing ’em softly

Celebs out at Cannes' nightly red carpet processions

Old-fashioned glamour, the kind they supposedly don’t make anymore, returned to the 65th Cannes Film Festival’s nightly red carpet processions as an ethereal Marilyn Monroe shone on the gigantic festival poster hovering above. That omnipresent poster of MM blowing out a birthday candle seems to have offered a reminder to the film biz that show is an essential element of show business.

Certainly red-carpet glam was in evidence from last week’s opening night for “Moonrise Kingdom,” with co-star Tilda Swinton in gold and L’Oreal’s Eva Longoria getting raves for a train that trailed her by several feet.

On Monday, Roman Polanski unspooled a restored version of his 1979 pic “Tess,” as well as his Prada short starring Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley.

Brad Pitt, easily the fest’s biggest attraction, returned in fine form on Tuesday in the Weinstein Co.’s “Killing Them Softly.”

And on Wednesday, Kristen Stewart unveiled more about herself in the beatnik-themed “On the Road” than she ever has in any of the “Twilight” pics.
