Nicole Kidman and Ang Lee, the director. After rounding up the latest red-carpet culprits in Cannes, you begin to wonder if there is real fashion, or, indeed, a real person. Of course you expect a drag queen element -- tired cleavage, blue-hued ruffles, an expertly kicked-out leg -- but what I don't get is why so many women surrender to mannequin glamour. At Cannes, strangely, pleasure and ...
