Every year around this time, we tend to get a bit sad thinking about the fact that red carpet season has officially concluded, and we only have a summer of lackluster movie premieres to look forward to. But then we remember: The Cannes Film Festival is on the horizon!
Held every May, Cannes is one of the most prestigious film festivals around, evidenced by the scores of A-listers that flock to France with tons of couture and high-style outfits in tow.
With the festival officially kicking off tomorrow, we decided to celebrate by taking a look back at the most memorable fashion moments on Cannes’ countless red carpets. From Diane Kruger‘s jaw-dropping Christian Dior gown she wore last year to Madonna‘s intricate beaded Chanel ensemble that she rocked back in 2008, there’s no shortage of over-the-top fashion statements at Cannes.
Something about the chic French air clearly makes everyone cast aside their desire for comfort and throw on a gown with more sequins than New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
