The Cannes Film Festival is about so much more than movie screenings and lavish red carpets. It’s nearly a fortnight of social gatherings fit for modern day royals and those who have an in. And in the age of Instagram, everyone does.
We’ve covered the 68th annual festival’s red carpet looks, but now let’s go into the parties—which are, perhaps, some of the best in the world. We’ll blame it on the location because, well, what’s more deluxe than sipping bubbly while gazing out at the yachts floating on the French Riviera? Ahead, 52 photos from some of the most opulent events in the world—including a few snaps from our own parties because getting down is something we most definitely Cannes do.
