Romain Duris Is My Cannes Dream Man

Andrew M. Santos

The actor’s look is never too try hard and remains deliciously laid-back (classic French-babe style, no matter the gender!). This past week, the lanky French man took to the festival’s casual roll call in an oversized ombré camp shirt by Celine Homme that made him look ablaze: The burning orange color started at the bottom and ascended into black at the waist, embellished by equally lanky, glittering palm trees. He wore this with neat black trousers, a pair of white shoes, thin silver bracelets, and a large pinky ring. He wore the same shoes when he arrived at the festival the day before but paired them with faded jeans and a leopard-print camp shirt. His best accessory here? His incredibly thick, tousled hair.

The actor has a history of easy homme style and embodies the designer Hedi Slimane’s manicured-yet-ruffled vibe. (After all, he did sit front row at the spring 2020 Celine men’s show, beltless and in a bomber jacket.) There’s no peacocking here. Some of my favorite red-carpet looks from the actor evoke just that laissez-faire mood. Promoting Exils in 2004 at the Cannes Film Festival, he wore a full white linen suit with an unbuttoned polo, revealing a thick swathe of chest hair. Last October, for the premiere of Eiffel, he opted for a polished striped suit but with a scoop-neck white T-shirt and an untied pale yellow silk scarf.
