Joe Alwyn's 'revenge dress' at Celine at the Cannes Film Festival

Joe Alwyn wore his “revenge dress” as the actor made his first public appearance since his split from Taylor Swift.

  • On May 22, Joe Alwyn attended a dinner hosted by Celine artistic director Hedi Slimane at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

  • Alwyn looked stylish wearing a tailored suit, an artfully undone satin shirt, and a gold chain as he made his first appearance at a public event since news broke of his split with Taylor Swift in April.

  • Swift’s fans were convinced that Alwyn’s fashionable outfit was his “revenge dress” following his break-up with the singer.

  • According to Page Six, Alwyn “feels slighted and is distraught” over Swift’s new romance with her former friend The 1975’s Matty Healy.

  • Meanwhile during her current Eras tour, Swift revealed that she is “the happiest” she has ever been in her life.

Why It Matters Swift’s fans are still brooding over Alwyn — given the singer has faced some backlash over her reported relationship with Matty Healy.

Healy is a controversial figure who has faced accusations of racism, misogynism, and Islamophobia. Social media users have put pressure on Swift to address Healy’s problematic past with the hashtag “#SpeakUpNow” and even launched a campaign to unfollow the singer.
