The 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival kicked off last week, ushering in a wave of red-carpet ready celebrities. The 2023 Cannes Film Festival began on Tuesday 16 May and runs through Saturday 27 May. Naturally, over the course of those 12 days, stars will descend on the French Riviera to support their projects with press conferences, photo-calls, and premieres – meaning plenty of time for some memorable red carpet looks. Esteemed guests, like Elle Fanning and Amira Al Zuhair, were among the first stars to arrive at the Palais des Festivals to attend the opening ceremony and screening of Jeanne du Barry. These well-dressed celebrities helped start the 12-day film festival off with a bang, donning everything from custom Rami Kadi gowns to Cartier jewellery.

Throughout its history, Cannes has consistently provided captivating instances of remarkable style. Past years have witnessed glamorous moments that have left a lasting impression, such as Diana, Princess of Wales’s mesmerising Catherine Walker gown in 1987, Madonna’s iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra in 1991, and Amal Clooney’s radiant Atelier Versace gown in 2016. In more recent times, model Bella Hadid made a splash with her 2021 Schiaparelli Couture dress and striking gold breastplate resembling lungs.

In addition to commemorating the exceptional achievements in global cinema, this film-centred spectacle also introduces an eagerly awaited extravaganza of glamour and timeless elegance, as renowned celebrities converge in France and showcase their finest attire and sophisticated suits. And thanks to the opening ceremony, celebrities attend and grace the red carpet adorned in stunning gowns and suits that leave a lasting impression, rivalling the significance of the films being honoured.

Whether it was Gigi Hadid gracefully donning a Zac Posen gown, Natalie Portman wearing a stunning Dior gown, or Naomi Campbell captivating everyone with a dazzling Valentino dress, here are the most remarkable fashion moments from this year’s red carpet.
