Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated, semi-controversial ninth film, had its premiere today at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie tackles the summer of 1969, aka the summer of the Manson murders, when the spirit of the sixties died (it’s arguable that that happened with the Kent State shootings in 1970, but that may be quibbling over semantics). And while the material, especially regarding the brutal murder of the pregnant actress Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie), is horrifying, the film looks undeniably stylish–the new trailer is all bouffants and burnished leather, yellows and Hockney blues, with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio lit in a golden Los Angeles glow. So it’s no surprise that the movie’s red carpet premiere was full of Extremely Good fashion.
