In this edition of Well Suited, we analyze the magical moment when French dancer Brahim Zaibat started doing flips on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

Everyone's excited about the Cannes Film Festival, but no one has demonstrated that emotion quite so well as French dancer Brahim Zaibat, who started doing flips for the cameramen when he got to the premiere of the film Foxcatcher.

Zaibat is known for a few things, chief among them the widely covered relationship with Madonna that ended last year (he was one of her backup dancers), and for his stint on the French version of Dancing With the Stars.

But for someone with such a colorful resume, the suit he wore to Cannes was pretty conservative: Zaibat paired the gray striped jacket and pants with simple black shoes and a black bow tie. But that's probably for the best. If he were wearing wacky neckwear or crazy patterned socks, his red carpet antics might have looked more circus act than class act.
