Cannes 2024 Best Dressed & Key Trends: Stars Shine on the Red Carpet

The annual Cannes Film Festival, which officially wrapped its 2024 addition today, is known as one of the most glamorous film festivals in the world—perhaps the most glamorous, rivaled only by the Venice Film Festival which happens late summer. Every year, the Cannes red carpet brings us unparalleled glitz and glamour, with A-listers flying in and donning their best formal gowns and tuxedos to promote their latest movies. The 2024 edition was no exception, as the stars brought their fashion A-game and embracing key trends like Riviera Sheer, Citrus glamour, and the always-popular "Ladies in Red.” As fans of the best movie of the festival….the Red Carpet, we have been watching and loving all the looks the festival has brought. Here are our top picks and trends to channel for your next event!

Riviera Sheer

Leading the sheer and coastal "Riviera Sheer" trend were Anya Taylor-Joy, Abbey Lee, Margaret Qualley, and Sienna Miller. Taylor-Joy stunned in a delicate floral-embroidered Jacquemus gown, while Abbey Lee sported lilac tulle in a sheer Gucci number. Qualley opted for a sheer, Chanel slip dress that showed off her toned figure, and Sienna Miller radiated effortless glamour in a flowy Chloé chiffon gown.

Citrus Glamour

Bringing a burst of vibrant colour to the red carpet were the stars embracing "Citrus Glamour." Kelly Rowland dazzled in a zesty lime two piece gown covered in sparkles, while Barbara Palvin wowed in a flattering and flowing tangerine gown. Demi Moore oozed sophistication in a sleek lemon hued strapless dress, and Diane Kruger showed us how to wear lime in a metallic look v necked gown.

Ladies in Red

The eternally chic "Ladies in Red" trend was well-represented, with Greta Gerwig, Selena Gomez, and Lily Gladstone leading the charge. Gerwig made a statement in a vibrant scarlet Armani Privé gown, Gomez shone in a crimson Giambattista Valli number with a floral ruffle neckline, and Gladstone radiated confidence in a caped Markarian gown.

Chain Luxe

Adding a touch of edgy glamour were the stars embracing the "Chain Luxe" trend. Cate Blanchett made a subtle statement in a Haider Ackermann for Jean Paul Gaultier gown with chain neckline embellishments, while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley exuded modern glam rock in a Victoria Beckham jumpsuit with chain fringing. Soo Joo Park also got in on the action, wearing a sexy, chainmail-inspired split, black velvet gown.

Sculptural Ball Gowns

And let's not forget the truly breathtaking "Sculptural Ball Gown" trend, represented by the likes of Heidi Klum, Elie Fy, and Maria Borges.
