The most memorable looks from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

Cannes 2016: Most memorable fashion looks on this year's red carpet

by Paige Exell -

With the 69th Cannes Film Festival officially over, we're beginning to miss watching our favourite celebrities walk the red carpet in their best outfits day after day. From Blake Lively's modern Cinderella-inspired gown, to Barbara Palvin's soft, romantic look, and Bella Hadid's scandalous red slit dress, this year's festival has been one of the most memorable when it comes to fashion and beauty.

So in honour of the festival, we're looking back at some of the most memorable looks to hit the red carpet this year. And while we loved all of the looks each celeb had to offer, see which gowns (and pantsuits) caused the most stir on the red carpet!


When Bella Hadid stepped out onto the Cannes red carpet for her first time wearing a satin red gown with a plunging neckline and waist-high side slit, the Internet lost it. But despite making us wonder how on earth she prevented a wardrobe malfunction, Bella Hadid's presented us with a look that will go down in Cannes fashion history.

Way to make a lasting first impression, Bella!


Despite showing off a numerous amount of noteworthy gowns for this year's Cannes Film Festival, Blake Lively wore one in particular that stood out amongst the rest. In true Cinderella fashion, the blonde bombshell stepped out onto the red carpet for the premiere of Slack Bay, wearing a tousled bun in her hair, and a blue ruffled gown with beaded embellishments that made her a modern day Cinderella story. The only thing missing? The glass slippers!


For her first red carpet appearance at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, L'Oreal muse Susan Sarandon strayed away from the norm, wearing a black and white pantsuit with a simple pair of black flats. The 69-year-old muse gave the younger ambassadors a run for their money, finishing her look off with a pair of black shades that made her one of the coolest celebs on this year's red carpet.


For her first-ever appearance on the Cannes red carpet, fashion blogger and creator of Kayture Kristin Bazan stepped out wearing a black gothic-chic gown with a dramatic smoky eye. For her second appearance, she turned heads for a second time, wearing a cropped two-piece Alberta Ferretti gown with a floral surface and royal shimmer that was successfully combined with her full red lips and side-swept old Hollywood curls.


For the film premiere of Julieta, Barbara Palvin adopted one of the latest spring-summer 2016 fashion trends, wearing an ethereal soft pink gown that introduced us to the era of old world romance. The gown was complimented by ruffled sleeves and a black waist band that will forever be remembered in our fashion best-dressed books!


Between her blue highlights, and negative space liner at L'Oreal's Blue Obsession party, Luma Grothe has worn some of the edgiest, and most memorable looks of the 69th Cannes Film Festival. At the premiere of Julieta, the L'Oreal muse proved her #blueobsession and unique personality with turquoise highlights flowing throughout her beautiful brown locks. And while we loved her beauty look, her gown was also one to remember.

Luma stunned in a sheer embellished Patricia Bonaldi long-sleeve gown that perfectly complimented her voluminous blue and brown mermaid-esque waves.


The metallic trend is one that has been popping up on red carpets and runways everywhere this season, especially with the 2016 Met's Manus x Machina themed gala that brought chic cyborg's in futuristic shades of silver and gold under the spotlight. L'Oreal muse Karlie Kloss decided to take on her own version of the trend on the 69th Cannes Film Festival red carpet, wearing a silver and gold sequin metallic gown with a side slit that showed off her long legs.

The supermodel added her own feminine twist to the look, pairing it with voluminous, back-combed curls and bow-tie headband in her hair.
