25 of the prettiest Cannes Film Festival dresses of all time
Best Cannes dress: Jessica Chastain, 2012
Hard to believe most of us hadn’t even heard of Jessica Chastain until a couple of years ago, isn’t it? The actress looked every inch the Hollywood starlet in this Armani dress.
Best Cannes dress: Jennifer Aniston, 2004
We know, we know: It still stings to look at Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston in their happier days. But it’s worth it to see Jen in this body-hugging Versace halter, don’t you think?
Best Cannes dress: Angelina Jolie, 2009
Five years later, Brad brought his current leading lady, Angelina Jolie, to the film fest. Her blush chiffon Versace number was sexy as can be, and it proves that she was a fan of showing off her right leg long before her famous 2012 Oscar look.
Best Cannes dress: Diane Kruger, 2012
Fashion plate Diane Kruger served as a festival juror in 2012, meaning we were treated to a slew of amazing gowns. This Giambattista Valli stunner was a fave.
Best Cannes dress: Natalie Portman, 2008
When Natalie Portman took her turn as a Cannes juror, she chose this flouncy Lanvin mini. How she pulled off those giant ruffles without overwhelming her petite frame, we’ll never know.
Best Cannes dress: Kerry Washington, 2007
Kerry Washington is one of our red carpet favorites, and this tulle Jean Paul Gaultier confection is exhibit A.
Best Cannes dress: Beyoncé, 2006
Confession: We want Beyoncé to do more films just so we can see her premiere wardrobe. This House of Dereon dress at the Dreamgirls screening was simply gorgeous on her.
Best Cannes dress: Kristen Stewart, 2012
Kristen Stewart gave up her trademark bedroom hair and Converse sneakers to rock this sexy Reem Acra dress, and we love it. K-Stew, let’s agree to wear more red in the future, k?
Best Cannes dress: Eva Longoria, 2012
Eva Longoria went for major drama in this gray Marchesa gown—and it totally paid off. Girl knows she looks good.
Best Cannes dress: Salma Hayek, 2010
Leave it to Salma Hayek to wear the first-ever Gucci Première couture dress (after all, her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, is the CEO of the design house’s parent company). We love the unique cutout detail and how the silhouette showcases Salma’s teeny waist.
