The Cannes Film Festival combines everything one could ever desire in an event: film, fashion, and a heavy helping of star power. The fact that it’s set in the most beautiful of locations, the south of France, doesn’t hurt. It’s no wonder A-Listers flock to the beachside town every May to take in the year’s most anticipated films, rub shoulders with tastemakers, and show off some fabulous looks in the process. That’s likely why Bella Hadid hasn’t missed the film festival once in the past eight years. Since 2015, the model has traveled to Cannes to walk numerous red carpets, attend the annual amfAR Gala, and make appearances at the various events throughout the two weeks. Of course, each of those requires a show-stopping look, and Hadid has hardly ever disappointed in delivering. From red hot gowns to incredible vintage pulls, Hadid always comes to Cannes prepared, and last year, the model worked with Law Roach to pull off what was truly one of the best displays of festival fashion we have ever seen.

Recently, Hadid has been keeping a low profile, but we’re still holding out hope that she’s just resting up before taking on the 2023 festival later this month. In the meantime, let’s take a look back at every dress Hadid has worn at Cannes, from 2015 to 2022.

When Roach and Hadid teamed up for the 2022 Cannes film festival, we knew something special was about to occur, but we never expected the parade of archival dresses that would follow. For the premiere of Broker (Les Bonnes Etoiles), the pair pulled out a Tom Ford-era Gucci dress from the brand’s milestone fall 1996 collection.

While many of Hadid’s looks for Cannes in 2022 were very sultry, this vintage Chanel dress, designed by Karl Lagerfeld in the ‘80s, had a bit more whimsy to it.

And then, of course, there was the sculptural masterpiece of a dress from Gianni Versace’s spring 1987 collection, which will likely go down as one of the best looks in Cannes red carpet history.

It’s hard to choose a favorite among all of Hadid’s show stopping Cannes looks over the years, but this Schiaparelli fall/winter 2021/22 couture dress is definitely up there. Fashion Twitter was appropriately left gasping for air when it debuted.
