The Cannes Film Festival has always seemed like one of the most glamorous Hollywood events to me. I think that’s mainly due to its location in the French Riviera (I blame Samantha Brown for my obsession with the Côte d’Azur), but I’ll give some credit to the celebrities and their films. Actually, scratch that. I don’t know anything about the films shown at Cannes, so I guess it’s just the Mediterranean seaside location and the outfits. The somewhat funny thing about celebrity fashion at the Cannes Film Festival is that I don’t actually know who any of the celebrities are. This year’s festival marked the 70th anniversary and ran from May 17-28. I’ve browsed various galleries on Elle, Vogue, etc., and I may recognize two or three actors, but for the most part I have no idea who these people are or what they’re known for. No matter! I can still admire their garb. And that’s what I’ve done today!
Let me state for the record that I like to take *inspiration* from red carpet fashion. I have no red carpet events on my calendar (though I am available should someone invite me) and thus have no need for a ballgown. However, I do like to morph these outfits into real life. These days real life for me means working an 8-5 office job, occasional date nights/dinner with friends, and cookouts. With that in mind, I’ve put together the below looks inspired by Cannes Film Festival fashion. I hope you enjoy!
