The 2023 Cannes Film Festival Outfits Just Keep Getting Better
Michelle Yeoh can do no wrong.
The French Riviera is the place to be right now. Not only did Sofia Richie just have her wedding there, but it’s also home to the 76th Annual Cannes Film Festival. The invitation-only event, which runs from May 16 to May 27, showcases upcoming movies from around the world. But the biggest attraction for those of us not in attendance is the buzzy red carpet scene, which always attracts a bevy of impeccably dressed stars. This year is no different: The celebs serving 2023 Cannes Film Festival fashion — including Brie Larson, Elle Fanning, and Naomi Campbell — look particularly stunning.
Exhibit A: Larson, who attended a series of events in not one, but two different Chanel numbers (a dress and floral jumpsuit). Then there was Fanning, who channeled her inner Disney princess in a custom Alexander McQueen gown, and Campbell — the model exuded a can’t-be-bothered energy by accessorizing her metallic gown with white sunglasses on the red carpet. And, of course, we could never dole out the style accolades without mentioning Dame Helen Mirren. She dyed her hair blue just so it could match her dress (we love to see the commitment!).
Since there are still many days left for the film festival, rest assure that more VIPS are on the way — we will be updating this space regularly with what they are all wearing. In the meantime, check below for some of our favorite looks from Cannes thus far.
