You can always count on Cannes for a stellar fashion moment.

This year the 75th Annual Cannes Film Festival has already had some of the world's brightest stars in attendance, dressed to the nines. Last night at the premiere of French film The Innocent, it was no exception to the ‘go big or go home’ rule.

Bella Hadid came dressed to impress in a stunning Versace dress, pulled from the archives. The unmistakable peplum puffball silhouette of the dress nodding to the original era, as the gown was from the Italian couture house’s spring/summer 1987 collection. The strapless black gown features figure-hugging column silhouette and is adorned with a dramatic taffeta bow at the back.

A truly outstanding eye catching piece of fashion history. Hadid worked with celebrity stylist Law Roach on the look. Bella managed to keep the vintage look modern with dramatic bold black cat-eye makeup which accentuated her famous blue eyes. The hairstyle, a wet slicked back updo with a braided bun and single tendril framing her supermodel features completed the look. This was paired with dazzling jewellery of course, as we’ve come to expect from the Croisette this year. Her diamond drop earrings bringing Hollywood glamour to the French riviera. She of course opted for Chopard, which is no coincidence as they are one of the main partners for this year’s festival.

The flick Bella Hadid was on hand to watch was a 2022 French drama film, directed by Louis Garrel, from a screenplay by Garrel, Tanguy Viel and Naïla Guiguet. It stars Roschdy Zem, Anouk Grinberg, Noémie Merlant and Garrel. Cannes this year takes place as usual after two years of Covid-induced restrictions. The last time we’ve seen an event on this scale is in 2019, in 2020 the event was cancelled completely and in 2021 it was a much more subdued affair.

This year our eyes are feasting on the latest fashion from the Croissette, as traditionally the biggest names in show business make their way down the red carpet for the event which hosts supermodels, actors and media personalities. This year’s event will follow suit from the Met Gala and also include a plethora of social media stars, as Cannes organisers have partnered with TikTok. The video streaming platform is sponsoring an award for short films at the festival. Prepare to see plenty of Chopard jewellery on show, as they are the official partners of the event
