The Cannes Film Festival has become one of the most stylish and iconic events of the year, filled with an array of beautiful celebrities wearing equally as stunning gowns. This year, the film festival blew past in a blur, and we can’t get enough of the fabulous high fashion that’s still filling our screens.
Now in its 70th consecutive year, the Cannes Film Festival never ceases to astonish us with iconic fashion moments — actors and filmmakers attending from far and wide.
While we’re absolutely excited for the upcoming films that premiered during the festival, we’re even more interested in what our favourite stars are wearing! All eyes are on them this year, now more than ever. Complete with their luxury yachts and boat parties – this glamorous festival is something we look forward to every year!
To celebrate the conclusion of this dreamy festival, we’ve arranged a shortlist of our favourite Cannes Film Festival dresses and how you can recreate these looks!
Elle Fanning always knows how to make a statement. Her looks are characteristically understated and demure, yet with that bit of personal edge. This year, Elle chose an ankle-length, voluminous white dress with a cinched waist, a scooped neckline and three-quarter bishop sleeves. Keeping her makeup natural-looking, Elle finished the look with hair tied back and a pair of gorgeous, strappy black heels.
Create your own Elle-inspired look with our Blue Dot Midi by Alice McCall. With that same dreamy, airy feel as Elle’s dress, this all-white midi number features sheer panels and a flowy hemline. A deep v-neckline on the sternum cut-out and blue polka dots with scalloped edging make this stunning little white dress something unforgettable. Keep your accessories to a minimum as Elle did, and go for a natural makeup look. Opt for a nude pod clutch and a pair of black heels to finish off your look!
Nicole Kidman looked absolutely spectacular in a full lace midi dress. It featured a softly layered hem, halter neckline and boned bodice that had a beautiful, finely intricate champagne lace all over — truly unforgettable. The accent piece of the look was that black belt with silver rivets. This was styled with a complementing pair of pointy black stilettos. With hair let down, Nicole went for a bold eye look offset by a simple, nude lip. Ethereal with that bit of edge!

Keep the makeup simple yet stunning with a bold eye look and nude or pink lip.
