Although Cannes Film Festival is, you know, for film, the red carpets at premieres, photo calls, and dinners are ones to watch on our list.
While we saw the typical slew of ultra-pretty dresses (which gave us some serious inspo for all those summer weddings we have coming up), we also witnessed some fashion risks being taken this time around. Trends such as gothic gowns and Victorian-inspired looks took center stage while casual pieces, like sweatshirts and denim, made first-time red carpet appearances.
However, on top of all the amazing fashions were the stunning beauty looks that pulled them together. From vibrant lips and sultry, smoky eyes, to tousled braids and sleek cuts, these badass babes sparkled, shined, and smoldered on the red carpet.
We rounded the 11 best beauty looks from this year’s festival. Click through the gallery below to take a closer look.
