What to Wear When Rubbing Shoulders With Hollywood’s Elite in Cannes

START

Jet-setting across the seven seas, or simply swapping neighborhood spots, What To Wear When is your weekly column for shopping inspiration.

Each May, well-heeled glitterati from all across the globe flock to an enchanting little seaside town on the French Riviera for one of the biggest and most famous film events in the world. Now in its 72nd year, the Festival de Cannes continuously draws celebrities, supermodels, and cinema moguls eager to check out the newest flicks, hit the red carpet in some seriously lavish duds, and, well, party. And while the festival, one of the “Big Three” alongside the Venice Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival, has seen its fair share of controversies and scandals since its inception in 1946 (#Heelgate and a selfie ban included), it never manages to skimp on glamour.

Though Festival de Cannes is notoriously an invite-only affair—and many of the city’s beaches are private—it is possible to get a taste of the kind of paradise exclusive to Cannes. (Just be sure to show up to the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès dressed to the absolute nines.) Even if you aren’t one of the lucky, non-famous individuals who manages to snag an unclaimed and highly coveted ticket, there are ample opportunities to catch a glimpse of some A-listers, or at least catch a free screening at Plage Macé. The town isn’t so bad, either. Below, shop CR‘s top picks should you find yourself yearning to get in on all the Cannes action.
