Cannes Film Festival: the mismatched outfits of the cast of “The French Dispatch” trigger the meme-fest

The prestigious Cannes Film Festival is not only celebrated for world cinema, but also for the stars who make iconic fashion statements on the red carpet. The cast of The French Dispatch seem to have missed the mark, however, and their disparity has sparked an online meme-fest.

At the photocall for the premiere of Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated movie, some went all out while others opted for a casual, mismatched style — and the contrast was hard to ignore.

While Timothée Chalamet, known for his otherwise great tuxedo looks, kept things casual in an Elara Pictures t-shirt, black pants and Givenchy boots, director Anderson tried to keep it formal with a pastel suit, a brown tie and white loafers. Meanwhile, Tilda Swinton stole the show wearing a shiny aqua blue Haider Ackermann suit and a striking pair of sunglasses. On the other hand, Bill Murray looked like he just stepped out of a trip to the beach, wearing a printed button-up shirt, baby blue shorts, sneakers and a fedora hat!

As footage of the press interaction went viral, netizens couldn’t help but compare each of the looks to relatable situations. Check out some of the hilarious memes here:

The French Dispatch, inspired in part by the new yorker, is a “love letter to journalists”. It is set to hit theaters on October 22.
