The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing on the French Riviera.

But whilst films are being celebrated for their artistic expression, so is fashion on the red carpet.

The invite-only festival takes place from 17 – 28 May.

CANNES FILM FEST: WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

Like its location, the Cannes Film Festival represents luxury, opulence, and exclusivity.

Naturally, the dress code is all about elegance and sophistication.

Whilst the daytime screenings call for a smart-casual look, the evening ones are strictly black-tie events. According to their policy, all distinguished female guests on the red carpet must be in evening dresses and high heels. For men, tuxedos and tailored suits are a must.

But not everyone has played by the unspoken old-fashioned rules of Cannes. In 2018, actress Kristen Stewart infamously kicked off her heels and walked the red carpet with them in her hands, whilst in 2016 Julia Roberts appeared on the red carpet completely barefoot.

DARING DRESSES

But whilst going barefoot is one thing, showing off too much skin is also frowned upon.

Here are a few celebs who’ve flashed too much flesh or dressed “inappropriately”over the years according to Cannes standards…
