The Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet | The Stars Look Stunning

The Cannes Film Festival or the Festival de Cannes kicked off on Wednesday this week with the premier of The Great Gatsby.  According to their website the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level.  The Cannes Film Festival turned 65 this year and is one of the most prestigious festivals in the world, thanks to the support and attendance of some of the biggest celebrities!  In the 1950s The Cannes Film Festival became more popular because of the attendance of some of the wealthiest celebrities of that time.  Actors and actresses such as Kirk Douglas, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and Cary Grant brought a lot of attention to the festival.  Check out the photo below.  These stars had such great style even back then!

Now, The Cannes Film Festival is a great avenue to get movies seen, discover new talent, and act as a springboard for creation, but what we really want to see is the Red Carpet!  We love to see what the celebrities are wearing to the festival!

This last picture is one of my favorites!  These ladies look absolutely beautiful posing together at the 66th edition of The Cannes Film Festival on the red carpet.  Each lady looking stunning in her own individual way, this is why we love watching the red carpet at The Cannes Film Festival.

The Cannes Film Festival just started on Wednesday in France, but continues through the weekend and next week.  The stars looked amazing on the first two days of the festival, but this is only the beginning.  Who is your favorite so far?  We want to hear what you think of the red carpet this year, so let us know!


The 2013 Oscars Was Marked By Stunning Actresses Who Sparkled in Sequins.  Last Night There Were So Many Amazing Dresses On The Red Carpet Of The 2013 Academy Awards.

Naomi WattsCatherine Zeta Jones, Jessica Chastain and more wowed in metallic shades. The reigning color palette at the 2013 Oscars was pale nude or white, or stark black.

Other trends on our best-dressed list from the night included strapless gowns (Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron had us in tears with their stunning Dior Couture gowns) and lots of diamonds … just not in necklaces. We saw bracelets and earrings, but necks were conspiculously bare. Perhaps the ladies knew that Seth McFarlane’s “We Saw Your Boobs” song would be calling enough attention to their breasts as it was?
