DAYS AND NIGHTS AT CANNES

IN HONOR OF THE RECENT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL, WE TRAVEL BACK IN TIME TO SOME OF THE BEST MOMENTS IN RED CARPET HISTORY

 Cannes, 1967

Cannes, 1967

Cannes red carpet culture is one of the richest, there is always a sense of relaxation and fun in the air, the beach and the sandy light colors against a blue sky backdrop make for a fresh atmosphere and gives a sense of vacation adventure to the whole event.

You can imagine Grace Kelly arriving elegantly in her headscarf and sunglasses,  orJane Birkin dancing in jeans and vaporous blouses. Here are some of the best moments in Cannes history. 

Vanessa Redgrave, 1967

This two-piece became one of the most  iconic Cannes  fashion moments after Vanessa Redgrave's amazing appearence. 

Simone Silva and Robert Mitchum, 1954

Egypt-born french actress Simone Silva shall always be remembered for her penchant for scandal, specially this topless photo that got her expelled from the festival. 

Elizabeth  Taylor and Mike Todd, 1957

Who could forget this wonderful tiara moment?

Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, 1969

Jane could always steal the show with her lace  cropped-tops, one of her most memorable looks, and certainly a recognisable  Cannes moment. 

Madonna, 1991

Everyone went a little crazy when Madonna appeared in this Jean-paul Gaultier piece, With the iconic pointed bra and a beautiful pink opera coat. 

Grace Kelly, 1955

Grace could have a princess moment wearing anything, high waisted pants were no exception!

Alfred Hitchcock and Tipi Hedren, 1963

This infamous pair appeared together on more than one occasion during the time of the two films that Hitchcock worked on with Hedren.

 

Juliette Binoche, 1985

This great moment captured  right on time!

Catherine Deneuve, 1966

Always gorgeous Catherine Deneuve with a sparkly striped number.

Winona Ryder, 1998

Remember the times when Winona was the reigning it girl? yes, times have changed, but this look and many others of hers are eternal.

Björk, 2000

Bjork was ahead of her time, as always, with this gorgeous, slightly quirky dress, but we all know that when it comes to red carpets Björk never disappoints, this being taken a year before the famous (or infamous) swan dress.
