McAdams in Marchesa

Rachel McAdams turned up the heat at the Midnight in Paris premiere in this showstopping gown by Marchesa. The illusion dress featured a nude bodice with intricate red embroidery and tulle detailing. With this dress, Rachel ensured no one could take their eyes off of her.

Aishwarya Rai in Armani Privé

At the Sleeping Beauty premiere, Aishwarya Rai proved she is still one of the most beautiful women in the world in this midnight blue-and-white gown by Armani Privé. The sculptural dress hugged her curves for an understated, but undeniably sexy look.

Salma Hayek in Gucci Premiere

Salma Hayek has been pulling out all the stops, and pulling from PPR's vast network of designers, for this film festival. On the red carpet at the Midnight in Paris premiere, she dazzled in a silver gown from Gucci's upcoming couture line, Gucci Premiere. The gown looked kissed by moonlight and fit for a princess.

Cheryl Cole in Stephane Rolland Couture


Cheryl Cole was white hot in Stephane Rolland Couture at the Habemus Papam premiere. The fitted and delicately draped dress featured a daring, cleavage-baring neckline. Cheryl looked gorgeous with dark lips and a sleek ponytail. Now, if only she had gotten rid of that pesky belt.

Uma Thurman in Versace

Jury Member Uma Thurman has yet to disappoint on the red carpet—clearly she intends to impress. At the opening ceremony, she stunned in a white, feather-emebellished versace gown with slinky slit and cutout details. We want to give her an award for this one!

Picture
Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein

This look had everything going for it: Diane Kruger in a gold lame Calvin Klein gown with beautiful curls and bold red lips. Unfortunately, the tricky curve-hugging fabric didn't respond well to the flashbulbs. C'est la vie!

Picture
Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann

There aren't many celebs who can pull off a Haider Ackermann gown. But Tilda Swintoncan and did at the We Need to Talk About Kevin premiere. The teal-and-midnight blue gown showcased her avant-garde taste, but wasn't too out-there for a big event. We would have switched out the shoes for something a little more strappy, but overall Tilda looks great as always.

Picture
Mia Wasikowska in Roland Mouret

Mia Wasikowska polishes up quite nicely! She showed off a gorgeous garnet Roland Mouret dress at the Restless premiere. The structured dress was paired with a classic French twist and simple diamond earrings. Tres chic!

Picture
Famke Janssen in Marchesa

While other celebs are going for more summery looks to reflect their South of France locale,Famke Janssen decided to wear a dark and moody Marchesa dress to the Bringing up Bobby party. The dress featured a lace bodice and ribbon detailing. Famke contrasted it with white sandals.

Picture
Lara Stone in Calvin Klein

The gold Calvin Klein dress struck again, but this time on Lara Stone at the brand's party during the film festival. It seems not even Lara's killer curves and beautiful features could remedy the awkward length and foil-like fabric. Dear designers, you know you need to up your game when even the world's most gorgeous models can't make your dress look good.

Picture
Rachel McAdams in Maxime Simoens Couture 

When Rachel McAdams broke out the couture at the Midnight in Paris photocall, we knew it was going to be a good week for fashion. The prim white sheath was embellished with flowers on the shoulder and pockets. Paired with perfectly fresh makeup and blownout hair, it was a solid start for Rachel's Cannes appearances.

Picture
Aishwarya Rai in Elie Saab Couture

Is it possible Aishwarya Rai gets even better with age? We think so! The absolutely gorgeous star stunned in an all-lace one-shouldered Elie Saab Couture gown at the premiere of Midnight in Paris.

Picture
Emily Browning in Louis Vuitton

Emily Browning played up Cannes' more tropical vibe with a fun, palm-printed strapless dress by Louis Vuitton. The fitted frock was youthful, but not childish and a nice alternative to the darker looks she's been going for in recent weeks.

Picture
Bryce Dallas Howard in Reem Acra

Bryce Dallas Howard attended the Restlesspremiere in a heavily embellished jacquard gown by Reem Acra. Her red locks and makeup were pretty, but the empire waist on her dress might have caused several rumors to start up. May we suggest a more fitted silhouette next time?
