While the Cannes Film Festival is known for showcasing new work from some of the world’s greatest film talent, it’s also become a hotbed of incredible celebrity fashion. Even film festivals like Sundance— which typically boasts myriad swoon-worthy ensembles from celebrities—can’t quite compare to the glamour that is the Cannes Film Festival. In fact, the Cannes Film Festival red carpets might be just as iconic and jaw-dropping as huge awards events like the Oscars and the Grammys. Celebrities step out onto the scene in gorgeous looks that are every bit reminiscent of old Hollywood. (Although, of course, Cannes takes place in France.)
The 2022 Cannes Film Festival runs from Tuesday, May 17 to Saturday, May 28, so there are so many incredible ensembles to see. Events like these—which have myriad red carpets, plenty of stunning celebrities, and, of course, glamorous outfits—are my favorite to take in, because you get days of beautiful looks. I like to sit back, relax and let all the fashion inspiration come to me. The glamour is never-ending, and I get so excited to see what all my favorite celebrities wear on the red carpets.
From fan favorites like Elle Fanning and Katherine Langford to absolute icons such as Viola Davis, Tom Cruise and Julianne Moore, there is no shortage of amazing celebrity style at the Cannes Film Festival. Elle Fanning, who has served on the festival’s jury before, has established herself as a Cannes red carpet staple and has already stepped out in a gorgeous tulle gown. To give you a peek of Fanning’s ensemble, along with all the must-see celebrity looks during the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, I rounded up the best of the best film festival fashion. Take it all in, babes, because this festival is seriously too glamorous for words.
