The 2023 Cannes Film Festival has officially rolled out the red carpet!
Every May, the elite film festival kicks off in the South of France and draws a star-studded crowd. Unlike other film festivals like Tribeca or TIFF, Cannes takes a relaxed approach to the fanfare—how can you not feel at ease overlooking the French Riviera? Though the films are the main event, luxurious fashion is the real star of the show.
Year after year, celebrities serve iconic looks that live in my head rent-free all year round. In 2022, Viola Davis shone like the sun in a bright yellow Alexander McQueen gown and eye-catching Boucheron jewels. Katherine Langford matched Davis’s ’fit by wearing head-to-toe hot pink Valentino. On the other side of the style spectrum, Elle Fanning looked like a fairy princess in soft baby pink sheer fabric.
The looks for the 2023 festival, which kicked off on May 16, are already to die for—I’m looking at your blue hair, Helen Mirren! Here are some of the best-dressed stars lighting up the red carpet.
