Colin, Cannes and fine eyes

These pics are from last week but I’m just coming across them now… Colin was back in Cannes, as far as I could tell, to support his wife Livia’s ethical fashion campaign.

Doesn’t he look lovely in a grey suit? I like Livia’s outfit too, it’s a dress that used to be owned by her mother.  On a side note: the article in this previous link (and other news sources I have seen) also refers to Colin asking for Italian citizenship next to his British one (Livia is Italian). He is very opposed to Brexit, so it looks like this application has something to do with that. End of side note and back to Cannes: Colin and Livia looked dapper here as well, with Livia again wearing a dress that looks lovely…

In Cannes, Colin looked very pleased, adorable and somewhat goofy, almost fatherly, hugging a young lady…

But the shot I really loved was this one…

Colin Firth Salma Hayek Juliette Binoche Cannes 2017

Colin sandwiched between Salma Hayek and Juliette Binoche. That look on Colin’s face is so tender, amused and adorable…. sigh! I just saw Salma Hayek on the Graham Norton show last week, she is quite funny, I never really knew that about her! Colin seems to like her too. 🙂 Not that Colin is in love with Salma but the look on his face makes me think of this Barbra Streisand song from her movie Yentl

It looks like Colin and Mr Darcy still have an important thing in common: they can happily meditate on the very great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of a pretty woman can bestow. 😉

  1. Nice pictures.
    I really liked Yentl when it came out. And Mandy Matinkin was so good looking. And a wonderful singer.

    • Oh yes, I really liked Yentl too. We had the soundtrack on an LP and played it all the time at our house. I have it again now, listened to it a while back. Some of the songs on it still make me cry…

  2. Aren’t they cute? Thanks for sharing those beautiful pics! I had already seen some of them but the Hayek-Binoche-combo is extraordinary and lovely! 😍 Sometimes he looks a bit elderly in films nowadays but Cannes seems to makes him all joyful and relaxed!

    • I don’t mind him looking older – I think he is ageing beautifully! I agree on his relaxed, joyful Cannes look. Maybe he’s that way because this time it wasn’t all about him but more about his wife’s work?
