Cannes: The Major Fashion Moments (So Far)
From everyone's go-to hue (yellow) to red-carpet rebels (flats), this year's film festival didn't disappoint on the fashion front.
With less than a week left, the 2016 Cannes Film Festival is more than halfway over, but style stars such as Charlize Theron have yet to walk the red carpet. That means one can be sure that major fashion moments are still to come.
As the world waits, here are the big hits of this year’s festival so far: In addition to Blake Lively, the color yellow ruled the carpet in the fest’s early days. Jessica Chastain stunned in Armani Prive, Amal Clooney brought Old Hollywood glamour in Atelier Versace, and Anna Kendrick looked beautiful in Stella McCartney.
Jury member Kirsten Dunst has been making the requisite rounds and mixing it up with each appearance. She looked modern yet elegant in a pink Gucci with sequined floral appliques for the opening night on May 11; ladylike in a black, short-sleeved Marc Jacobs dress (with flowers and mini ballerinas) on May 15; and angelic in a Dior Haute Couture white silk pillar gown on May 16.

There have been rebels, too. Kristen Stewart paired Chanel with checkerboard sneakers (after taking off her heels) at the opening night gala dinner; Julia Roberts, in Armani Prive and a stunning emerald and diamond necklace by Chopard, kicked off her heels and climbed the steps of the Palais with bare feet; and Susan Sarandon showed off two pairs of sunglasses at a pair of premieres. But that actually wasn’t the most rebellious part of her ensembles: She wore a pair of flats on opening night as a not-so-subtle nod to last year’s Flatgate debacle.
The opposite sex also has looked chic, from Ryan Gosling in Gucci to Matt Bomer in Armani, both at their premiere of The Nice Guys on May 15. Gosling stood out in a custom white shawl one-button jacket, a color that also worked for bad boy turned (this year’s) gentleman Shia LaBeouf, who showed again that in Cannes anything is possible — especially on the red carpet.
