Due to me deciding that it is not such an absolute, ‘wearing white’ was not included on my list of things celebrities never wear. They do wear it – just never quite like Elisabeth Moss, Adriana Lima, and Rihanna did at Cannes.
Whereas the average famous person who wished not to stir the engagement-rumour pot would only touch the colourless colour with a 10-foot pole and if it were Calvin-Klein clean, the aforementioned trio went where few have gone before: bridal white.
