Cannes Film Festival 2016: All That Glitters on the Red Carpet

Bella Hadid

The Cannes Film Festival has historically hosted one of the most glamorous red carpets on the movie circuit; since Elizabeth Taylor’s historic Bulgari jewels made their debut in the ’50s, stars have brought out their best — and sparkliest — for the week and a half of high-profile premieres and parties. This year, Bella Hadid showed up with de Grisogono founder and creative director Fawaz Gruosi, his designs draped around her neck and wrist, and Julia Roberts and Amal Clooney went classic in Chopard and Cartier, respectively. See the brightest, highest-watt (and -carat) accessories of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, here.
