At the Cannes Film Festival, the stars of each film have two major press moments to attend: the red carpet in the evening and the photocalls in the hours beforehand. The red carpet fashion is always about OTT glamour, with diamonds so big they are like actual rocks and impactful gowns with dramatic trains or layers of tulle. It's all about aerial photographs on this red carpet, so stars tend to really play with proportions in Cannes. However, we do get to see some outfits we could actually re-create at the photo-calls too. We are only a few days into this year's festival, but there have already been a handful of outfits we'd like to buy into.
Selena Gomez opted for a very French outfit, wearing a navy knitted trouser set with vintage gold buttons by Chanel and strappy gold sandals. Chloë Sevigny has looked as cool as ever, wearing a white lace dress by Loewe and an amazing striped shorts suit. And Elle Fanning wore the most beautiful pink trouser suit by Sandro. Keep scrolling to see some of the best outfits from the Cannes Film Festival so far.
Dame Helen Mirren in Loewe Dress
Style Notes: You can always rely on Dame Helen Mirren for a seriously stylish outfit. Her striped Loewe maxi is just the right balance of South of France holiday vibes and polished red carpet–ready elegance.
Style Notes: Model Doutzen Kroes shows that the leather dress trend isn't just for winter. With it's plunging neckline and asymmetric hem, this is officially the fashion-girl way to do cocktail dressing.
Elle Fanning in a Pink Trouser Suit and Striped Shirt
Style Notes: Elle Fanning loves to wear pink, and on the second day of the film fest, she wore a soft rose trouser suit by Sandro with strappy heart sandals by Laurence Dacade and a neon mini tote by Balenciaga.
