Cannes is fashion's second playground. (The Met Gala is, obviously, first.) It's a chance for actors and other notables to experiment with style and rock the gowns Disney could only dream of. This year, Victorian-style trumped the traditional princess garb—though Blake Lively certainly had a Cinderella moment. Sophisticated, casual luxury also abounded, with many actors opting for fashion tees and mini denim jacket dresses.
With summer wedding season just around the corner, Cannes' carpet offered up a bevy of looks to try for future wedding attendees. (Sorry, brides, you're going to have to pour over the gowns yourself.) Ahead, 10 Cannes red carpet looks (and how to get them for cheap) perfect for anyone with a summer wedding or two on their calendars. They're showstoppers guaranteed to make you best dressed—second to the bride, of course.
