This, you see, is the fantasy of the French Riviera; European glamour comes in the form of voluminous haute couture and (especially if you’re one Jane Birkin) a white button-up, faded jeans, and Converse. Attitude is everything.
In 2022, the festival opened with a group of Cannes jurors and a selection of global celebrities. Actress Rebecca Hall, who walked the red carpet for Michel Hazanavicius’s comedy Final Cut in red Gucci, chose Burberry for her first photocall.
Hers was a striking look plucked straight from Ricciardo Tisci’s autumn/winter ’22/’23 ready-to-wear collection: a double-breasted blazer, pleated knee-length skirt, and skintight, square toe boots, all in an emerald green bar and orange and yellow floral high-neck top poking out under the lapels.
Fellow Cannes juror Deepika Padukone opted for a similarly rich green, though she sported her shade with a pair of palazzo trousers. A billowing peach blouse by Sabyasachi, worn open at the collar to display an impressively jeweled collar, was accessorized with a headband—the breeziness of Cannes resort-style, coming into play.
As the festival rolls on, we scour the streets of the French Riviera to bring you the best off-carpet celebrity fashion. Below, is a glimpse at this year’s street style.
