THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL RED CARPET | THE STARS LOOK STUNNING

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 festival-cannes.fr 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!
