The Cannes Film Festival, along with the Met Gala and Academy Awards, is one of those occasions where the celebrities pull out all to stops to dress to impress. Dressed in Couture, straight off the runway dresses and dripping in diamonds, the past 2 weeks we have seen so many incredible gowns grace the red carpet. It is all about glamour, glitz and look at me red carpet fashion. I have put together a review of who wore what. This is going to be a picture heavy blog post, but with so many gorgeous gowns to swoon over I hope you will enjoy it.

WOW!!! See what I mean about breath-taking gowns? Ralph & Russo and Elie Saab were the most popular go to designers. On each red carpet appearance, their gowns provided show-stopping moments. I love the fairytale-esque dresses, the exquisite embellishments, ostrich feather hems and layers of tulle.
1. Araya A. Hargate - Ashi Studio - I was completely in awe of this gown!
2. Cate Blanchett - Giles AW15 - I was not expecting to see Cate wearing such a dark and dramatic look. At an event where we see very little print, this striking printed gown made a refreshing change. I also think she looked considerably better than Solange Knowles did wearing the same collection at the Met Gala earlier in the month.
3. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini - Ralph & Russo - Cheryl attended this event as an ambassador for L'Oreal. The blush colour of the gown perfectly complimented her skin tone and the detailing on the back was stunning. It was a flawless look.
