The 71st Cannes Film Festival is drawing to a close, and clebrities are out in force and so far we've seen the likes of Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Irina Shayk, Kristen Stewart and even a fair few Victoria's Secret supermodels hitting the red carpet! This year, there's a big change - selfies are not allowed. However, do not fear, there are PLENTY of paparazzi lightbulbs going off on the Croisette. We'll be showing you our favourite dresses (and jewels!) from the red carpet.  

Kristen Stewart

After she threw off her shoes to walk up the red carpet in Cannes, we love Kristen Stewart even more. It's hard walking in sky-high Louboutins at the best of time, but in the rain? No thanks. But it was more about comfort, K-Stew was making a point. 

Speaking about her decision to ditch the heels she said at the time: “Things have to change immediately. It has become really obvious that if [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, young lady, you’re not wearing heels. You cannot come in.’ Then [I’m going to say], ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’ It can work both ways.”

Stella Maxwell

Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell, and girlfriend of Kristen Stewart, looked exquisite in an all-over embroidered silver crystal dress by Roberto Cavalli. The dress was cutom-made for the star. 

Josephine Skriver

She has walked the biggest catwalk show on earth, but this time the Victoria's Secret angel donned a blue mullet hem dress for a visit to Cannes Film Festival.

Bella Hadid

Lupita Nyong'o

Dior was the designer of choice for Lupita 

Movie star alert! Lupita stepped out on the Cannes red carpet looking dreamy in Christian Dior Spring 2018. She teamed her dress with Chopard jewels.

Amber Heard

A statement Valentino dress for Amber Heard

Actress Amber Heard attended the premiere of Sorry Angel wearing a dramatic Valentino gown with a plunging neckline.

Irina Shayk

Irina Shayk wearing Versace

Wow! It's not often we see thigh-grazing slits on the Cannes red carpet. Her custom-made Versace gown featured not one, but TWO slits that went all the way up to her midriff. 

Irina Shayk dressed in Twinset and Chopard jewels

The night before, Irina Shayk attended the screening of Yomeddine during Cannes Film Festival. She might have been without her boyfriend Bradley Cooper on the red carpet but she did have a dress with pockets, so who's the real winner here?! 

Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore wearing Givenchy and Chopard jewels

If acting doesn't work out for Julianne Moore, she could always become a jewellery designer. The 57-year-old actress has been working with the luxury jewellery brand Chopard to create a capsule collection which was unveiled during the Cannes Film Festival 2018.

This Victoria's Secret supermodel really does have her wings. Leomie Anderson, a London-born supermodel, graced the red carpet in an exquisite yellow dress by Twinset. She also attended the screening of Yomeddine. Could she be the next VS model to hit the big screen? Only time will tell...
