The world’s most prestigious film festival opened May 17th and as usual we couldn’t wait to see what our favorite actresses would be wearing on the red carpet. The Cannes Film Festival's strict dress codes, combined with it’s reputation for serious film, tends to tone down the red carpet theatrics of most celebrities. However, Emily Ratajkowski caused the internet to erupt over her beautiful black lace number by Peter Dundas. Sharing the spotlight was Deepika Padukone, the actress who has been in the most Indian films of any woman. In the classy style of Cannes (it is in France after all) the majority of American actresses like Michelle Williams and Susan Sarandon stuck to craftsmanship and simple colors like red, white and black with the exception of Uma Thurman who wore a stunning pale pink number by Versace. Actresses like Bella Hadid wore a sexy slit up the leg number worthy of Susan Hayworth in Gilda. Clearly we are all going to be showing some leg next Spring.
Of course, no red carpet dress would be complete without a signature designer clutch to go with it. Here’s a selection of designer clutches luxurious enough for the celebrity spotlight and beautiful enough to avoid any “worst dressed” lists.
