At the closing ceremony (and Le Glace Et Le Ciel premiere), Sienna Miller continued her flawless Cannes beauty run with matte pink lips, brushed up brows and dreamy double twists extending back from her hairline on either side. LOVE.

Isabella Rosselini is iconic, perfect, gorgeous, etc. Any superlative you can think of, she is the definition of. Her skin is flawless. She is serving that mauve lip color with authority. Her hair has more volume than a stadium concert. Bow down.

Oh hi there. This is just Dita Von Teese absolutely killing everyone with her perfectly co-ordinated lipstick and manicure game at the Avakian Suite.

At the Macbeth premiere, Elizabeth Debicki postively glowed with her beautiful icy-blonde pixie pushed back and big blue eyes accented with lots of fake lashes at the outer corners.

Hopefully you love Marion Cotillard as much as we do, because she's had a heck of a few days in Cannes: here she is with heavily underlined brows, lightly contoured cheeks and minimal bronze eyemakeup at the daytime photocall for MacBeth. But we REALLY dig this hair; pinned back at either side and hidden with a chic combover.

We cannot wait for the release of The Little Prince, and the Cannes premiere was totally star-studded. Model Hanaa Ben Abdesslem rocked some of the best formal bangs we've seen yet on the red carpet.

Dear Marion Cotillard, please be like 80% less amazing. You're making everyone else look bad (or at least not as skilled at smoky eyes, which is practically the same thing). Love, The World.

If you were wondering whether Marion Cotillard was going to bring back jewelled hair nets at the Little Prince premiere, the answer is yes.

The insanely beautiful Liu Wen kept it simple with defined brows, sleek hair and soft cat eye liner.

Emily Blunt is having a really amazing Cannes season. Though this look isn't too drastically different from what we've seen from her, the pulled back hair and slightly sparkly brown smoky eyes makes this totally perfect for the premiere of Sicario.

And here is Emily Blunt's hair from the back, because it's just SO good.

Cate Blanchett doesn't often go big with her lipcolor, but when she does, it's totally perfect. This watermelon pink shade is amazing with her fair skin.

Natalie Portman's intense smoky eyes and 'My Lips But Better'-shade lip stain combine to create a totally glam, yet simple, look.

At the De Grisogono party, Cara Delevingne served her signature dark brow-nude lip realness with messy, wavy hair and mega-watt jewellery.

Joan Smalls may actually be perfect. Those amazingly groomed brows and heavily lined matte lips are our summertime inspiration forever.

Rachel Weisz has been KILLING it at Cannes this year. At the Calvin Klein party, her tousled hair, pink blush and coral lips (we spot a trend!) were actually flawless.

Emily Blunt proves that neutrals are anything but boring with this gorgeous smoky-eyed makeup and half-up hairstyle.

At the Calvin Klein party, Kat Graham kept it as simple, sleek and elegant as a CK dress itself.

Doutzen Kroes rocked matte pink lips and co-ordinated pink eyeshadow. Worn with loosely pulled back hair, this look is anything but too much. Also, dig those amazing brows. INSPIRATIONAL.

Adriana Lima served red-lipped realness at the Chopard party. Not how she's used frosty white eyeliner around her tear ducts to really draw extra attention to her beautiful eyes.

Emily Blunt embraces one of the biggest trends of spring—orange-red lips—and makes it her own at the Sicario photocall.

Lily Donaldson kept the rest of her look very simple at the Inside Out premiere so as not to compete with her sharp cat-eye and bold, brushed-up brows.

Andie MacDowell is flawless. Those curls! That skin! The lipstick perfectly co-ordinated with the coral gown!

Photo: Venturelli/WireImage

Mindy Kaling, slaying you all on the red carpet, paired a slightly voluminous side ponytail with pink lips and purple eyeliner. We also LOVE those ombre hair extensions!

Photo: Mike Marsland/WireImage

At the premiere of Inside Out, Eva Longoria went FULL GLAM with very dramatic smoky eyes and backswept hair. We love a woman who totally goes for it.

Photo: Danny Martindale/FilmMagic

Salma Hayek's voluminous curls, pink cheeks and co-ordinated pink lips compliment, rather than compete with her stunning purple gown at the premiere of Rocco And His Brothers.

Up-and-coming actress Rachel Brosnahan smouldered at the photocall for Louder Than Bombs. We LOVE her deep-parted, slicked back red hair, straight eyebrows and beyond flawless skin.

Photo: Pascal Le Segretain/WireImage

Amy Poehler went red back in early April, and we were HERE for it. At the photocall for Inside Out, we finally got a good look at her updated red color; with a softer, more coppery hue and lots of blonde highlights, this ginger shade is absolutely perfect with her peaches-and-cream complexion.

Cate Blanchett is crowned Queen of Beauty, Life and Everything at the premiere of her film Carol.

Aishwarya Rai cannot get any more gorgeous. That perfect, perfect hair! The dramatic cat eyes with turquoise liner! The dark lips! Can anyone else possibly top this beauty look?

Photo: Mike Marsland/WireImage

Leave it to Sienna Miller to make double French braids look impossibly glam on the red carpet!

Photo: Mike Marsland/WireImage

We are obsessed with Poppy Delevigne's elegantly disheveled look at the premiere of Carol: center parted hair, curled and pulled back in a messy low bun, seriously seductive smoky eyes and nude lips. Love.

Photo: Mike Marsland/WireImage

Cate Blanchett: utterly perfect at the photocall for Carol. We love her signature peachy makeup and lightly wavy, immaculately highlighted hair.

Photo: Dominique Charriau/WireImage

Never one to shy away from a strong look, Rooney Mara rocked a bold, straight brow with matte skin, peach blush and nude lips at the Carol photocall.

CAN THIS WOMAN DO WRONG. Emma Stone looks nothing short of luminous at the red carpet premiere of Irrational Man.

Photo: George Pimentel/WireImage

And here is Emma Stone's hair at the same premiere, because damn. So good.

At Charles Finch's annual dinner party, Noomi Rapace brought some seriously major cat eyes. We love how she paired this bold liner look with super minimal makeup and nude lips; it really keeps the focus on her glorious peepers!

Emma Stone's lightly wavy, loosely pinned back hair at the photocall for Irrational Man is complimented by her softly smoky eye makeup in shades of grey and pink, matte lips.

At the premiere of Il Racconto Dei Racconti, Salma Hayek stunned with her impossibly shiny hair styled in Classic Hollywood waves. HOW is she so gorgeous?

Photo: Tony Barson/FilmMagic

Rachel Weisz is immaculate. That skin! Those brows! That beyond perfect, slightly flippy hair! At the photocall for The Lobster, we were reminded of why she's one our eternal woman crushes.

Photo: Venturelli/WireImage

Charlize Theron is flawless in the most literal sense of the word. This sleek yet retro-inspired hairstyle perfectly compliments her sculptural yellow dress and peach-toned makeup at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere.

Photo: Tony Barson/FilmMagic

Another look at this hair, because it's amazing. Bow down to Charlize.

Photo: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

With waist-length box braids, skin bronzed and highlighted to perfection and her signature, unique eyeliner, Zoe Kravitz looks both chic AND like herself on the Mad Max red carpet.

Naomi Watts has stopped our hearts with her gorgeous, perfect hair (and amazing face).

Photo: Dominique Charriau/WireImage

Liya Kebede looks beyond radiant at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere with glowing skin, defined cheekbones and mini cat eyes.

Photo: Dominique Charriau/WireImage

Julianne Moore, ever our favorite, knocked us dead on the La Tete Haute red carpet with smoky eyes, sleek hair and nude lipgloss. We love that she kept her skin dewy and natural, letting us see those gorgeous freckles!

Photo: Anthony Harvey/FilmMagic

Sienna Miller's full brows and warm red lips at the Opening Ceremony of the festival are the epitome of glam.

Photo: George Pimentel/WireImage

At the premiere of La Tete Haute, Natalie Portman kept it simple and beautiful with her signature straight brows and pinky-nude lips. We're also in love with her deep-parted, loosely curled hair.

Photo: Tony Barson/FilmMagic

Fashion favorite Fan Bingbing slays in dramatic cat eye liner paired with sleek, center-parted hair.

Photo: Gisela Schober/Getty Images

Bow down to Lupita N'yongo: her cool fuchsia lips and lightly smoky cat eye is one of our favorite looks from her, ever (and that's saying something). And we can't even talk about her perfect hair without getting emotional.

Photo: Anthony Harvey/FilmMagic

Rocking minimal makeup and a South of France glow, Bar Rafaeli keeps it simple and effortless at the festival's opening ceremony.

Photo: Samir Hussein/WireImage

Salma Hayek's muted red lips (picking up the roses in her dress) and INCREDIBLE hair are basically our beauty dream at the photocall for Il Racconto Dei Racconti.

Photo: Tony Barson/FilmMagic)

At the photocall for Mad Max: Fury Road, our love Charlize Theron wore a deep-parted ponytail, subtle smoky eyes and pale pink lipstick. Perfection.
