Red Carpet: 2015 Cannes Film Festival!

 The Cannes Film Festival is an annual festival held at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France, which previews new films of all genres, including international documentaries. Since 1946, this film festival has grown to be considered one of the most prestigious and most publicized in the world. 

This year, the festival began on May 13th and it is soon coming to an end on May 24th. To wrap up the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, I thought I’d share some of my fave looks from the multitude of celebrities that came out to the invitation-only festival.

Jourdan Dunn looked stunning in a gorgeous Vera Wang gown and Chopard jewels.  

Kendall Jenner showed some skin in this Calvin Klein Collection gown and Chopard jewels. 

Lara Stone sizzled in a high slit gold dress.  

Mary J. Blige looked dazzling in a beaded dress. 

Sienna Miller shines bright in a Ralph Lauren Collection gown. 

Irina Shayk stunned in an emerald sweetheart shaped gown and Harry Winston jewels. 

Chanel Iman looked gorgeous in a Zuhair Murad Couture masterpiece, an Edie Parker clutch and Ileana Makri jewels. 

Cate Blanchett rocked all black in Armani Privé.  

Emily Blunt glittered in a Stella McCartney gown.

Adriana Lima looked amazing in a Ulyana Sergeenko gown and Chopard jewels.  

Andie MacDowell looked radiant in Elie Saab. 

Eva Longoria looked fierce in a Gabriela Cadena gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. 

Lily Donaldson rocked a black beaded gown.  

Salma Hayek popped (literally) in Gucci.  

Camila Alves looked gorge in a Gabriela Cadena gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry (although this gown could have done without this stunning piece of jewelry).

Diane Kruger dazzled in Prada.

Charlize Theron looked radiant in a yellow Christian Dior Couture and Chopard jewels. 

Bar Refaeli rocked a simple yet elegant Roland Mouret gown.  

Who rocked your fave look?
