CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

"Okja" Red Carpet Arrivals - The 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival may have a decades-long history of turning its head away from women directors, but this year, on its 70th anniversary, women ruled its somewhat lackluster screenings both on-screen and on the red carpet, taking care to play by their own rules. Though the festival came to a close Sunday, the day before Memorial Day, Tilda Swinton wasn’t the only celebrity on the carpet to cram as much white as possible into their ensembles: Rihanna, Lily Collins, and Juliette Binoche all showed up in variations of white, with RiRi providing the latest proof that 2017 looks and feels a lot like The Matrix with a pair of sci-fi-esque Dior sunglasses as well. Meanwhile, the increasingly statuesque Lily-Rose Depp continued making her rounds in dreamy, lily white Chanel couture, and Elisabeth Moss wore no less than three white gowns in about as many days to promote her film The Square, upon which Pedro Almodóvar and his jury bestowed the coveted Palme d’Or. Get a look at all their ensembles, plus those of Elle Fanning, Maria Borges, and Isabelle Huppert, here.
