Cannes 2016 Red Carpet Round Up

The Cannes Film Festival has been happening over on the Rivera in France for the last few days, and as the event winds down, it’s time for us to take a gander at the best of the red carpet looks from the last few days.

Now, for those who are unfamiliar with the Cannes Film Festival, this red carpet is a little different than others. because it’s over the course of several days, we have actresses who show up two and tree times over the course of the week, so we can measure their looks against each other. We also get a nice cross-section of foreign-born actresses who don’t do a lot of American films on the Red Carpet for a breath of fresh air.

Sonam Kapoor in Ralph and Russo

Take for example, Sonam Kapoor sporting this very femme Ralph and Russo showstopper. She’s not one we get to see very often–and it’s a treat when we do.

Indian actress Aishwarya Rai showed up three times, all in Indian homegrown designers.

Aishwarya Rai in Ali Younes

Personally of the three the third was my favorite.

Aishwarya Rai in Rami Kadi

It’s just the purple lipstick I’m not sold on.

Blake Lively in Atelier Versace

Another trio of looks, like this from Blake Lively.

Blake Lively In Versace

Her first two gowns were Versace and trying a bit too hard

Blake Lively In Vivianne Westwood

I thought her third look, a Vivienne Westwood, suited her best.

Julianne Moore in Alexander McQueen

Julianne Moore showed up three times.

Julianne Moore in Givinchy

She wore three different designers: McQueen (above), Givinchy (center), and Vuitton (below.)

Julianne Moore in Louis Vuitton

None of it worked.

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

A two shot for Jessica Chastain, here in McQueen

Jessica Chastain in Armani Privé

And in a different shade of gold in Armani. I prefer the design of the second, but the color of the first.

Naomi Watts in Armani Privé

A Naomi Watts two-fer. Both are minimalist looks.

Naomi Watts in Michael Kors

But unlike this Michael Kors sack, the Armani above is at least not shapeless.

Kristen Stewart in Chanel

Kristen Stewart doing exactly the same thing.

Kristen Stewart

Just in two different looks.

Araya A. Hargate in Jean Paul Gaultier

A two set from Thai actress Araya Hargate. The top is Gautier, the bottom Ralph and Russo.

Araya A. Hargate in Ralph and Russo Couture

Both are pretty fabulous.

Vanessa Paradis in Chanel

Johnny Depp’s wife, Vanessa Paradis in Chanel

LilyRose Depp in Chanel

Their daughter Lily-Rose, in the same.

Amal Clooney in Versace

Amal Clooney. They seem to make it their business to be at these things now.

Anna Kendrick in Stella Mccartney

Anna Kendrick in a very similar look, right down to the handsome arm candy in a tux.

Bela Hadid in Cavalli

Bella Hadid, who I think we blame Taylor Swift for making a thing.

Bianca Balti in Alberta Ferretti

French actress Bianca Balti in Alberta Ferretti and awesome shoes.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole, in her take on the sexy embroidered doily.

Eva Longoria in Victoria Beckham

Eva Longoria, pretending she’s not upset Telenova got axed last week.

Gong Li in Cavalli Couture

Gong Li in Cavalli Couture. You’re welcome.

Zuo An Xiao

Zuo An Xiao, in a local Chinese designer. You see why I wish we got to see these women more often?

Hofit Golan in Jean Fares Couture

Israeli actress Hofit Golan in Jean Fares Couture, which looks a bit like a melting Dali painting.

Julia Roberts in GArmani

Julia Roberts, who has been doing this too long to care if you think her black gown is basic.

Kendall Jenner in Cavalli

Kendall Jenner, who was only invited if she’s wear something see thru and make headlines. (She clearly complied.)

Kristen Dunst in Gucci

Kristen Dunst, going the opposite route and covering up to her neck.

Marion Cotillard in Dior

Marion Cotillard, who looks like she’d rather be elsewhere. (It doesn’t help that her Dior is really dull.)

Riley Keough in Gucci

Riley Keough in Gucci. Who? Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, if you must know.

Susan Sarandon

Go away Susan Sarandon. Seriously.
