CANNES, France — While certain actresses choose their red-carpet frocks last minute, Rachel McAdams knew precisely what she was going to wear for the premiere of “Midnight in Paris” here on Wednesday: a red lace and nude tulle Marchesa gown selected during two fittings in Los Angeles with celebrity stylist and costume designer duo Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn.
With their help, the actress jetted into town with one trunk containing pre-selected looks for two premieres and three press junkets. “We bagged up every outfit with shoes and accessories, so everything is paint-by-numbers,” said Zangardi.
