The annual Cannes Film Festival is not only a showcase of some of the most exciting, inspiring and upcoming cinematic works, but a feast for the eyes in terms of red carpet fashion. With stars having to strike that perfect balance between polished and relaxed for daytime engagements, and all-out filmstar glamour for moonlit film premieres, here are some of our favourite looks from the stars of the silver screen.
Aja Naomi King wore a Zac Posen gown to the premiere for A Hidden Life on 19th May.
Julianne Moore’s rose and diamond Givenchy gown stunned on the blue carpet for the Rocketman premiere.
Liya Kebede dazzled in frothy embroidered Valentino.
Synonymous to the French fashion house, Anja Rubik wore a classic Saint Laurent tuxedo teamed with vampy accessories to the Pain and Glory premiere.
Also at the Pain and Glory premiere was Deepika Padukone, who was pastel pistachio perfection in an XXL Giambattista Valli gown.
Selena Gomez’ nautical inspired Chanel ensemble was the perfect pick for the waterside photocall of The Dead Don’t Die.
Also at the photocall was co-star Chloe Sevigny, who continued her reign as fashion’s coolest female in a monochrome, pearl-dripping Loewe dress.
Then, at the photocall of Les Realisateurs Des Courts Metrages En Competition, Sevigny wore an ensemble from designer-of-the-moment, Marine Serre.
For The Dead Don’t Die premiere, Tilda Swinton schooled us on understated glamour in a custom silver column dress by Haider Ackermann. Teamed with nude shoes, minimal makeup and slicked back hair, Swinton’s ensemble looked like a modern suit of armour, rousing empowering images of Joan of Arc.
Elle Fanning, the now dubbed Princess of Cannes, wore floral Valentino to the premiere for Les Miserables on 15th May.
Dame Helen Mirren debuted a new candyfloss pink hairdo whilst sporting a glistening Ellie Saab dress to the screening of Les Plus Belles Annees D’Une Vie on 18th May.
Margot Robbie wore Chanel Haute Couture to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere. The ensemble was a welcome contrast to the gowns expected on la Croisette, and with a retro undertone, the look felt reminiscent of Robbie’s character in the film, sixties icon Sharon Tate. For a photocall engagement, Robbie’s hair emulated a style worn by Tate to the 1968 Cannes Festival.
