For a week in May, the world’s most famous models and celebrities make their way to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. And if you thought the Oscars were glamorous, just wait until you see the hair and makeup from Cannes.
This year was all about the red lip: Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, and K-pop star Jessica Jung all wore the bright crimson hue, making for a striking first day of red carpet looks. The hair was equally elegant with chignons, twisted updos, and Hollywood waves.
If the rest of the week is anything like what we’ve seen so far, we’re in for some dreamy hair and makeup inspiration. (Here’s hoping there’s another new hair color moment as good as Iskra Lawrence’s rose gold hair last year.) Keep reading to see each and every one of the looks as they grace the red carpet.
