Best Dressed Film Festival 2012 – Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival is a playground for movie buffs, fashion types and social fixtures, filled with modish moments swooshing around every red carpet screening and after party.

Cannes is a Technicolor candy store of confections, and its supremely outfitted stars have made it the best dressed fest of 2012.

With glowing A-listers like Diane Kruger, Freida Pinto, Kylie Minoque and Marion Cotillard in the mix, and Atelier Versace, Christian Dior, Elie Saab and Roberto Cavalli rotating in the fashion credits, this feast for the eyes in the French Riviera is the most dramatic production of the year.

No fest can best the flourish of Cannes….although Venice did come close this year.

    This was by far the easiest category to vote for, to be honest. Diane looked so fabulous, and so did Marion, Jessica Chastain, etc.

    Cannes killed it. Diane non-stop extravaganza, Freida Pinto, Nicole, Marion and co were just amazing.

    Venice was good but Cannes was JAW-DROPPING this year. Just amazing. 🙂

    While I did vote for Cannes, you are totally right that Venice was such a pleasant surprise this year.

    I agree. The BEST! No other festival can compete.

    I wasn’t able to keep up with Venice, since I was on vacation on that time, but I saw some BDOTY worthy looks (Kate Hudson, Kasia Smutniak). I did keep up with Cannes, however, and almost all of the looks were stunning and I voted for Cannes. Gotta love film festivals.

    I loved both film festivals : Venice & Cannes!

    I did vote for Venice but it was more of a random pick between the two. They were both outstanding festivals!

    Cannes and Venice were wonderful. Jane Fonda is on my BDOTY list. If there were an award for “designer we’d like to see more of” on the RC, it would be Stephane Rolland for me.

    Yes to Cannes, the oscars have been a disappointment since Zoe Saldana walked in Givenchy

      i meant that since the year Zoe wore Givenchy I havent been blown away by any dress. But Cannes and Venice have been so amazing

      The Oscars aren’t a film festival…
