Running from Tuesday to July 17, major stars like Jodie Foster, Spike Lee, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain and others are coming together at the annual film festival to debut some of the year’s biggest films.
The in-person festival also brings back the red carpet, which has a long history of producing memorable, high-fashion moments. The film festival’s opening night already had several standout fashion moments with looks from the runways of Chanel, Dior, Celine, Givenchy and more.
Model Bella Hadid made her return to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on opening night, wearing a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier dress from the designer’s spring 2002 couture collection. The white, form-fitting dress was accented with a black tulle cape and matching bodice. Hadid has had other standout fashion moments at the festival, namely in 2016 when the model wore a red satin Alexandre Vauthier dress with a thigh-high slit.
Cannes jury president, Oscar-winning director and screenwriter Spike Lee, brought his signature eccentric style to the festival’s red carpet on opening night, wearing a hot pink suit and matching sunglasses designed by Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director Virgil Abloh.
Foster, who received the festival’s honorary Palme d’Or prize at the opening ceremony, walked the red carpet wearing a white Givenchy dress embellished with metal details.
