The 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival has begun and will run until the May 22 at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès on the French Riviera, South of France.
With A-list attendees and the best outfits appearing on the red carpet, the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most notable events on the international film calendar.
From bejewelled gowns worn by Blake Lively, Bella Hadid and Naomi Watts to tuxedos making appearances on Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon and Victoria Beckham.
Amongst the couture-clad starlets and supermodels, Kristen Stewart still manages to stand out with the help of CHANEL’s Lucia Pica on makeup, Adir Abergel on hair and stylist Tara Swennen, and of course Kristen’s signature of cool grunge meets glamour. “She cut that Chanel T-shirt herself. It was her idea,” Pica says of the white-on-white skirt-and-shirt ensemble Stewart wore.
