Sharon Stone – Steve Sands Photoshoot 1990 + Sharon Stone proves her Basic fashion Instincts are wrong for once at Cannes Film Festival premiere of The Search
Sharon Stone was born and raised in Meadville, a small town in Pennsylvania. Her strict father was a factory worker and her mother was an accountant and homemaker. She was the second of four children. At the age of 15, she studied in Saegertown High School, Pennsylvania and, at that same age, entered Edinboro State University of Pennsylvania, and graduated with a degree in creative writing and fine arts. She was a very smart girl, became a bookworm, and once was told that a suitable job for her (and her brains) was to become a lawyer. However, her first love was still the black-and-white movies, especially those featuring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. So, the 17-year-old Sharon got herself into the Miss Crawford County beauty contest and won it. From working part-time as a McDonald’s counter girl, she worked her way up to become a successful Ford model, both in TV commercials and print ads. In 1980, she made her film debut as an extra in Woody Allen’s Stardust Memories (1980). Her first speaking part was in Wes Craven’s horror movie, Deadly Blessing (1981). She struggled through many parts in B-movies, such as King Solomon’s Mines (1985) and Action Jackson (1988). Sharon Stone was also married in 1984 to Michael Greenburg, the producer of MacGyver (1985), but they divorced two years later. She finally got her big break with a memorable supporting role in the popular Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Viska prisiminti (1990), and also posed nude for Playboy, a daring move for a 32-year-old actress. But it worked; she was cast in the breakthrough role as a sociopath novelist, “Catherine Tramell”, in Basic Instinct (1992). Her interrogation scene has become a classic in film history and her performance captivated everyone, from MTV viewers, who honored her with Most Desirable Female and Best Female Performance Awards, to a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. After she got famous, she didn’t want to be typecast, so she played a victim in Sliver (1993), and, in Intersection (1994), Sharon Stone was the aloof, estranged wife of Richard Gere. Afterwards, so she got herself again into more aggressive roles, such as The Specialist (1994) with Sylvester Stallone and The Quick and the Dead (1995) with Gene Hackman. But, it wasn’t until she played a beautiful but drug-crazy trophy wife of Robert De Niro in Casino (1995) that she got far more than just fame and fortune–she also received the acknowledgment of the movie industry for her acting ability. She received her first Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination. She did a couple films after wards, teaming up with Isabelle Adjani in Diabolique (1996), and as a woman waiting for her death penalty in Last Dance (1996). In 1998, she married a newspaper editor, Phil Bronstein. That year she also starred in the sci-fi thriller Sphere (1998) and received her third Golden Globe nomination for The Mighty (1998), a film that her company, “Chaos”, also co-executive produced. The next year, she played the title role in Gloria (1999) and entered her first comedic role in The Muse (1999), which gave her another Golden Globe nomination. Sharon Stone, a diva who thoroughly enjoys her hard-won stardom, is now a mother of an adorable baby boy, Roan Joseph.
Sharon Stone proves her Basic fashion Instincts are wrong for once at Cannes Film Festival premiere of The Search
While there was a slew of gorgeous stars, and models, on the Cannes catwalk for the premiere of The Search movie, it unexpectedly fell to Sharon Stone to prove that her Basic fashion Instincts were well off the mark for once.
Wearing a black mini-dress which was low-cut with string ties, 56-year-old Sharon truly missed the fashion mark with her odd LBD.
With her hair pushed off her face and large shades on, she looked more like Brigitte Nielsen than a Hollywood movie star.
That was in stark contrast to the previous evening when Sharon was at her usual highly glamorous standard in a figure-hugging red dress that showed off her toned body and was worn with a huge amount of de Grisogono ruby and emerald jewels.
So expensive were the rocks that she wore on her body that Sharon needed eight bodyguards to ensure her safety – and that of the jewellery.
It’s little surprise then that by the night’s end model Cara Delevingne was spotted licking Sharon’s face.
At The Search launch, while Sharon was definitely off her game in the fashion stakes, all eyes were on Cara as she headed up the models attending premiere during the 67th Cannes Film Festival.
Making sure she stood out amongst her fellow fashionistas Cara wore a short frock, while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lara Stone, Irina Shayk and Barbara Palvin all opted for long gowns.
Cara, who was seen enjoying lunch with model friend Aymeline Valade, earlier in the day made a quick change for the red carpet.
