The 2018 Cannes Film Festival has been in full swing since last week, and we’re officially feeling all the FOMO. Aside from the buzz and excitement surrounding all of the films that we just can’t wait to see for ourselves, we’ve been drooling from afar at all of the glitz and glamour seen on the carpet.
Over the weekend, however, things turned up a notch. Topping the regular lineup of photo calls, premieres, and parties filled with gorgeous gowns was Fashion For Relief, a charity gala and fashion show that brings fashion’s elite (and all of the models-of-the-moment) to Cannes.
In addition to the really great fashion, there were some pretty empowering happenings, as well. Led by some of this year’s film jury, including Cate Blanchett, Ava DuVernay, and Kristen Stewart, stars and filmmakers joined forces to protest the festival's lack of female filmmakers, marching down the red carpet and reading a statement at the screening of Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil).
We rounded up all of our favorite red carpet moments from this past weekend that you may have missed—from protest statements to sartorial hits—so you can experience some Cannes FOMO with us. Check ‘em out, below.
