Forget the films. To us, it was all about the gowns and jewellery at the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Whether hair up or down, sleeved or bare-shouldered, celebs are masters of showing off the most exquisite jewels, along with themselves. More so at the Cannes, where glamour is an everyday aspiration and business.
From May 11 to 22, the French Riviera once again became a theatrical playground for actors, entourages and those aspiring to be part of it, continuing a stylish tradition since 1947 . But no matter how well they were adorned in the latest couture from the most sought-after designers, stars can never compete with the extravagance and flamboyance of the most sensational jewels. Here, we present our favourite looks straight from the Promenade de la Croisette.
