These Casual Cannes Outfits Are Even Better Than Ones on the Red Carpet

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.
