Street Style: Cannes 2015 Edition

Cannes Street Style

The stars aren't the only ones with style chops in the South of France.

When it comes to Cannes style, the red carpet-laden steps leading up to the Palais are blessed with the lion’s share of the glamour. But that’s not to say the streets are free of interesting threads on fashionable folks, especially during the festival.

From beach chic to mixed prints and even Parisian flair, THR saw it all during a one-hour hunt down the Rue d’Antibes and the Croisette on an 81-degree scorcher, searching for some of the most striking street style ensembles.

The Parisian Writer (above)

Name: Lola

Country of residence: France

Occupation: journalist

My Look: “This bag is a vintage Celine. It’s one of my favorite bags — I’ve had it 20 years. It was my mom’s. And this is not a dress, it’s a shirt but I bought it in extra large so I could wear it as a dress.”

The Muscle Man

Name: Aurelian

Country of residence: France

Occupation: beach attendant

My Look: “Sportswear — colored and flashy. I choose with feeling. I have no particular brand favorites except for Adidas for shoes because it’s colored.”


The Authentic Local

Name: Nathalie 

Country of residence: France

Occupation: training to be a pastry chef and “Making cookies.”

My Look: “My beauty spots are my favorite feature. I like to just be myself.  At a point, you try to make your differences a strength. It takes a little bit of courage at a point in life, but it’s okay, it doesn’t hurt!”

The American Pavilion Intern

Name: Rachel

Country of residence: United States

Occupation: student at Carnegie Mellon University in a graduate program for entertainment management

My Look: “This is a Dolce & Gabbana dress, Gucci shoes and Saint Laurent bag. It’s really hot here and I wanted to wear something really light. I wanted to be comfortable and this outfit is very comfy.”

The Professional Fashionista

Name: Monica

Country of residence: Italy

Occupation: fashion designer for Woolrich

My Look: “I just bought these pants by Vanessa Bruno because (the pants) are quite masculine and relaxed. And my Celine bag – every girl likes Celine for accessories. There’s no one in the world who doesn’t like it.”
