Juliette Binoche wears harem pants in Cannes, hell freezes over

Certified Copy - Photocall: Cannes Film Festival

Well, readers, it’s official: harem pants have made it to the red carpet (or concrete sidewalk, in this case), and on no less a person than Juliette Binoche, famed for her classical beauty and chic French style.

The world mourns.

Or does it? The Fashion Police will probably never come to terms with the dropped crotch, but it seems the rest of the world is willing to embrace it, and we can’t help but feel that Juliette’s endorsement of the crotch is a telling moment in fashion history. Has the harem finally become a style staple? Will diaper-pants compete with little black dresses as the go-to party piece for women all over the world. Do these pants actually look… dare we say it… good?

We’re confused, and a little bit frightened. It’s like the world we know has turned on its axis, and now everything we formerly believed was wrong. If you look hard enough, we’re pretty sure that’s a flying pig in the background of the photo.

Help us out here, readers. Do you think Juliette Binoche is working the hell out of these pants?

    I hate to say but they don’t look as bad as most harem pants. Still hate them, of course, but definitely an improvement from most.

    the pants make her torso look super long, and her legs itty bitty short sticks.

    I saw someone wearing drop-crotch harem pants similar to these in Boots yesterday. They looked every bit as horrible in real-life. At least they weren’t tucked into Uggs.

    I don’t agree with any of that. Why not an harem pants? what world are we leaving in if harem pants can’t get on the street or even better on the red carpet? Juliette Binoche wears them with class and gusto, proven one more time that she’s a trendsetter. Bravo!

    It’s really not as horrific as others we’ve seen on here. For me, the real crime is having such ill fitting armholes on her top half. No excuse. At all.

    I was always told that my long legs were one of my best features, so I’m very sad to see people intentionally shortening their legs. Aren’t clothes meant to be flattering?
    I will admit the top is great. And the shoes, the shoes are wonderful.
