Beginning of the Cannes festival, most glamorous event of 2016

This Wednesday, May 11th, the Cannes Film Festival makes its grand entrance on the Croisette in the small port town of the French Riviera.

Red carpet unrolled, photographers on their toes and impatient crowd: the 69th edition of this great cinematic event promises, as every year, to be exceptional!

For the occasion, Julia Roberts, Robert de Niro, Marion Cotillard, Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Diane Kruger and dozens of other international stars put on their finest outfits to assist to the film selection as well as the prestigious awards ceremony which will end on May 22nd.

A nice way to also honor the work of the biggest fashion houses such as Chanel, Dior and Givenchy who worked hard to dress the Hollywood stars.

This 69th edition will be chaired by the director, producer and screenwriter Australian George Miller, with a jury including Vanessa Paradis, the American actress Kirsten Dunst, the Canadian actor Donald Sutherland, the Italian actress Valeria Golino and the French filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin.
