Some of the year’s most anticipated films premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and the red carpet at this festival was a true embarrassment of the riches. Many A-list stars attended this year’s festival and introduced us to countless amazing red carpet trends along the way.

Bring the Fire

Vibrant colors stole the show in Cannes this year, with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jasmine Tookes, Gemma Chan, Naomi Campbell, and Sara Sampaio bringing some fire to the red carpet in their red and orange gowns.

Go Big or Go Home

XXL gowns with a lot of volume brought some drama to the red carpet, with the likes of Elle Fanning, Ashley Graham, Sofia Carson, and Jourdan Dunn using them to embrace full princess mode.

Visible Bras

Exposed bras are the biggest new trend to emerge at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and we owe this craze to Sydney Sweeney, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Scarlett Johansson.

Cutout Bonanza

Cutout dresses are not a novelty in Hollywood, and they’re not going anywhere. Dua Lipa, Naomi Campbell, Gemma Chan, and Heidi Klum wore them at Cannes, bringing some edge to the red carpet.

Blast From the Past

Vintage dresses experienced somewhat of a renaissance in recent years, and several stars used them to take us decades into the past, including Gigi Hadid and Natalie Portman.
