PARIS — White was the new black at the recent Cannes International Film Festival, where several debonair actors opted for the more formal white bow tie to finish off their tuxedos. Evoking the golden age of cinema, Jean Dujardin, who scooped the festival’s best actor award for his role in Michel Hazanavicius’ black-and-white silent picture “The Artist,” donned a classic Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo and a white bow tie at the closing ceremony on Sunday.

Jury member Jude Law wore his white tie with black grain de poudre Dior Homme tuxedos to the opening and closing ceremonies.

“I actually rarely enjoy wearing a bow tie, but I’ve really enjoyed it this time around,” said actor Djimon Hounsou, who wore a black velvet number with his Fendi tuxedo for the “Midnight in Paris” premiere.

Most of the men stayed within the safety zone of classic, old-school formalwear. Brad Pitt wore a Tom Ford shawl-lapel tuxedo to the “The Tree of Life” premiere, oddly wearing a bow tie over a partly unbuttoned shirt — possibly a wardrobe malfunction due to lack of shut-eye, given the size of his brood. “Drive” star Ryan Gosling, meanwhile, stood out with daring color choices: a burgundy tuxedo from Balenciaga and a brilliant blue one custom-made for him by Salvatore Ferragamo.
