I didn’t realise quite how much I had missed the high-octane glamour of the red carpet until last night’s Cannes Film Festival arrivals. Bella Hadid wowed the masked crowd in her Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture look: a stunning monochrome gown that was absolute perfection from its tulle halterneck right down to its fringed tail. It was a real wow moment yet so refined and restrained, too. You can see it from every angle below.
Not only did the supermodel bring her A game, but a lineup of actresses clearly enjoyed this opportunity to dress up once more. Jessica Chastain looked like a gothic beauty in black chiffon, Helen Mirren a vision in canary yellow (and she wasn’t the only star to choose this striking shade), Maggie Gyllenhaal as understatedly glam as always in a series of chic Celine looks, while Marion Cotillard challenged us all to get into the idea of cycling shorts with booties. It’s 2021, and anything can happen! From daytime events to Nice airport arrivals and, of course, all of the most incredible red carpet moments, these are the Cannes outfits we’ve loved the most so far. Continue to check back as we update this gallery for the duration of the festival.
