Trust the French actresses attending Cannes to give a masterclass in soft, natural glam. Here, Cotillard sports a no-makeup look and undone hairstyle at the Brother and Sister (Frere et Soeur) photo call.

Alicia Vikander

Vikander certainly took a page out of the French beauty playbook. At the photo call for Irma Vep, the actress combed her middle-parted hair back and went for a super soft smokey eye.

Emily Ratajkowski

The model took the opportunity to debut bangs on the Cannes red carpet, her girl-next-door ‘do providing a nice contrast to her sultry sheer lace gown.

Bombshell Bump-It-style hair and makeup in blush tones were the ideal daytime combo for the star whose Cannes red carpet debut has been packed with glamour.

Long, loose locks and a simple red lip lent drama to Kebede’s floor-sweeping ivory cape gown.

Tilda Swinton

At this point, Cannes just wouldn’t be Cannes without Swinton’s sky-high platinum blonde coif. For the screening of Three Thousand Years of Longing the star added a dose of playful makeup with glittering eyelids.

Viola Davis

Davis brought pops of neon to the Cannes red carpet with a Birds of Paradise hair accessory and colorful eyeshadow and highlighter that accentuated her bright yellow gown.

Elle Fanning

Fanning knows how to work her alabaster skin, which has pink undertones. Here, she sports a rose-colored lip, pink blush, and a bit of shimmery pink highlighter around the chin.

Julianne Moore

Moore balanced her own smokey eye with soft peach tones on her eyelids and cheeks at the screening of Final Cut (Coupez!) and the opening ceremony red carpet.

Eye Haidara

The French actress attended the screening of Final Cut (Coupez!) wearing an elegant hairstyle that called to mind Nina Simone’s 1968 Newport Jazz Festival look.

Adriana Lima

The model may or may not be giving a nod to Rihanna’s pregnancy style with this look, but she’s made it all her own with straight, dark locks and a middle part, along with mauve lips.

Jennifer Connelly

Connelly needs only a swipe of gunmetal eyeshadow to bring out her striking green eyes. Tom Cruise, for his part, flashed pearly whites and sported a South of France-ready tan at the Top Gun: Maverick screening on May 18, 2022.
