Celebrities on the Cannes 2022 Red Carpet: The Best Outfits

The outbreak of World War II forced the cancellation of the first Cannes Film Festival, which was to be held on the French Riviera in 1939 as an alternative to the Venice Film Festival. In September 1946, seven years after the idea, the Cannes Film Festival finally rolled out its red carpet, which was attended by 18 countries, including the United States and its first Cannes Film Festival contestant, The Wizard of Oz. Today, 89 countries are attending takes part in the annual May Festival and while the films are a main attraction of the event, so is the fashion. Running through May 28, this year’s event includes not only films, but also dinners and parties with high-profile attendees such as Anne Hathaway and Julianne Moore. As at the Academy Awards and the Met Gala, those in attendance showed their fashion best by donning custom designs and haute couture.

Stylist Alexandra Imgruth, who dresses French actress Léa Seydoux (you might know her from the 2011 film Midnight in Paris) for this year’s film festival, explains what it takes to get the red carpet ready. “Léa and I started discussing ideas for Cannes back in March during the BAFTA Awards – even though film nominations aren’t announced until April. It’s good to have enough time,” she explains. “We knew we wanted to do something different than our last looks — a little bit more European,” she says. The event’s dress code is strictly black, even for attending paparazzi. Still, given the festival’s international attendance, Imgruth believes people are taking more creative liberties with their looks.

Imgruth’s previous favorite Cannes Film Festival ensembles include Sophia Loren’s old Hollywood glamor looks from the 1950s. Her recent Best Dressed nominees include Julianne Moore in Chanel and Diane Kruger in Vivianne Westward. Ahead, we have some of the best looks from the 2022 Cannes Film Festival with many more glamorous moments along the way.
