This year the Cannes International Film Festival celebrates its 70th anniversary, and classic evening gowns and jewelry are on the red carpet.

This year the Cannes International Film Festival celebrates its 70th anniversary and the stars smiled at the photographers as they showed off their dresses and jewelry. The glamor of old Hollywood dominates the red carpet, even a few deviations from the trend in the form of mini dresses and accented shoulders are designed in the spirit of a retro, evening dress code of some 80s.

Pastel pink is a safe bet. Suitable for any skin tone, does not stand out too much, but does not merge with black or white outfits. The powder-colored dresses of the traditional mermaid silhouette were the most on the red carpet.


A bare leg peeking out from behind a high neckline is a sure and acceptable technique that most of the stars have used.


Jumpsuits. If you wear a jumpsuit (or, even more radical, a suit) on the red carpet, then you can be sure that your look will make it to the top picks from the opening ceremony of the festival. If only for the reason that you need to somehow dilute the mermaid-fairy entourage.


Princess dresses at celebrations such as the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, it immediately becomes clear which of the celebrities in the test “What kind of princess are you?” would get the option “You are a real princess!”. And let these dresses (for many years) look somewhat archaic. The main thing is self-awareness.
