As famous for its unique brand of glamour as it is for its film-critic credentials, the annual Cannes Film Festival is always a favourite among fashion and movie fans alike. From the finest couture gowns to the most special of jewellery, the stylists and designers really go above and beyond for this most celebratory – and iconic – of red carpets. After all, who can’t instantly picture those famous steps?
Also setting Cannes apart from other recognisable red carpet moments is the fact that it lasts for two weeks, and consists of multiple premieres, parties, lunches and dinners – all with an unapologetically glamorous dress code (this is not the place for minimalism). But what goes into dressing the stars for such an event?
We spoke to six celebrity stylists – Petra Flannery, Miranda Almond, Aimee Croysdill, Georgia Medley, Zadrian Smith and Sarah Edmiston – who shared their all-time favourite Cannes red carpet looks and talked us through the magic behind dressing the A-list for the annual film festival.
