The revered Cannes Film Festival brings industry professionals from across the globe to view new films of all genres. Needless to say, this prestigious festival is definitely on our travel wishlist! Our dream Cannes vacation would include spending a weekend jet setting to France and watching brilliant and thought-provoking films by the best in the business. Between films we would dine on french cuisine (macarons, anyone?) while being lost in a sea of the most revered actors in polished suits and actresses in intricate dresses. We also wouldn't mind getting gussied up in a floor-length gown, either! Here are some of the looks we loved from the ladies of the Cannes Film Festival.   

Colorful gowns were common at this year's film festival. Some of our favorites include German actress Emilia Schüle in elegant radiant orchid, Jessica Chastain in an one shouldered bold cobalt blue dress, and Blake Lively in a oxblood frock with a daring slit! Pictured above, Frieda Pinto is simply stunning in a decadent coral gown with gold trim. Not only are the colorful hues of these gowns ravishing, but we love the classic necklines and immaculate styling of each of these starlets. 

Along with an array of colorful dresses, neutral gowns were also a Cannes favorite. While all of these gowns feature a subtle hue, each one possesses details that make it stand out. Frieda Pinto stuns in both coral and the soft shade of her gown featuring a unique necklace and feathery trim on her flowing skirt while Aishwarya Rai opted for a more structured dress with metallic and geometric details. Amber Heard embraces neural colorblocking with her white blouse and sparkling skirt. Further below Zoe Saldana evokes timeless femininity in a detailed white dress and golden belt. 

Embellished dresses made a statement at this year's Cannes. From Cate Blanchett's intricate sparkling charcoal-gray gown to Nicole Kidman's glimmering gown featuring silvery baroque details and Marion Cotillard's colorful short beaded dress, the embellished dresses worn at the film festival looked equally stunning up close as they did from afar.
