Retrospective: The Best Cannes Looks Of All Time

Amal Clooney Cannes Film Festival 2016

As Cannes Film Festival approached, we get excited to not only to celebrate film as an art form, but also the red carpet fashion that plays a supporting role in the promotion and recognition of the stars we all adore.

Since 1946, the Festival has been an international fashion playground for the best of the best. Click through the slideshows below to see our favorite red carpet moments of Côte d’Azur, from Grace Kelly to Jennifer Lawrence – before the phenomenon of the red carpet even existed.
