If there was fashion Disneyland, it would be the Cannes Film Festival. When it comes to amazing outfits, it’s pretty much the happiest place on earth. If there’s one thing Cannes can be relied upon it’s beautiful gowns, an almost ridiculous amount of jewels and lots of very well-dressed people congregating in the gorgeous French town, both on the red carpet and at photo calls. As you’d expect it’s all out glamour when it comes to Cannes. This year, the red carpet has everything from long trains and voluminous ball gowns to 50s style Dior prom dresses as seen on Nicole Kidman. Monochrome is a trend that doesn’t seem to be waning with Emma Watson and Zoe Saldana both wearing the trend on the red carpet. Amidst the couture gowns, minimalist chic a la Rooney Mara in Calvin Klein made an equally powerful statement. Basic black is still timelessly sophisticated with Cara Delevingne in lacy black Burberry paired with a striking red lip stealing the show. But should we really be surprised there was so much fashion eye candy? If there’s one thing the French know how to do, it’s throw a damn stylish show.
