In typical fashion, the Cannes Film Festival showcased more than cinematic masterpieces; it served as a red carpet runway for international celebrities. An annual festival that brings together some of the most well known international glitterati, stars shine brightly at their films’ premiers.

Known as one of the most glamorous red carpet events of the year, attendees dressed accordingly. Elegant ensembles in white, black and red made a sophisticated statement. Richly hued blue dresses and nude shiny numbers also made a splash at this year’s festivities.

Gwen Stephanie and Elena Anaya chose the chic combo of black and white, while many opted for all red or red accented frocks. Zoe Saldana stunned in a read and white Armani Prive, Jessica Chastain dazzled in a short Oscar de la Renta creation and Milla Jovovich looked statuesque in a red-trimmed Prada.

Looking quite model-like Bar Rafelli and Karolina Kurkova both turned heads in royal blue gowns by Roberto Cavalli and Armani Prive, respectively. Penelope Cruz was also a beauty in blue, as she attended the premier of the next Pirates of the Caribbean installment in a calf-length Stella McCartney.

Demonstrating the always-popular nude and sparkle trend, Diane Kruger looked sleek in Calvin Klein, while Rachel McAdams embraced a retro feel in a strapless pantsuit by Monique Lhuillier.

Looks like French style is definitely a can.
