We are always on the look out for the hottest new trends that will define the 68th Cannes Film Festival, and we think we've spied one in particular: the red carpet braided updo! An ornate way of making any off-the-face style into a statement piece, so many of the hottest stars have been appearing with elaborately braided and arranged hairstyles, crowning their heads like real red carpet royalty!
Here are our top picks for this year's Cannes Film Festival's most on-trend hairstyle:
Poppy Delevingne attended the Cannes premiere of Carol yesterday (May 17) wearing a sheer netted emerald green plunging gown with starry embellishment. Our eyes were drawn to her gorgeous hairstyle: a braided chignon, done by weaving and pinning together braids at the nape of the neck.
We can't get enough of Sienna Miller's Cannes red carpet style for this 68th edition, as she seems happy to pull out a showstopper for every premiere! Her high-collared black dress at the Carol premiere last night was another such occasion, topped off by this braided hairstyle for shorter hair lengths: a Sienna staple!
Always one to make an entrance,Fan Bingbing knows to top her gorgeous gowns with a crown to match and, in this case, it's a flower crown! The fashion muse of China stepped out onto the red carpet for the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere on May 14 with this springtime, braided coronet and a floral dress to match: reign on, Fan Bingbing!
French actress Alice Taglioni attended the Cannes opening ceremony and premiere of La Tete Haute on May 13 with this fishtail braid. We love her tousled finish with just-stepped-off-the-beach texture and blonde highlights: a real inspiration for Summer 2015!
Léa Seydoux took her twisted chignon from daytime cool to nighttime chic on May 15, sporting the style for both the photocall and the premiere of her new film The Lobster. Léa has grouped the hair in knotted braids and pinned them at the nape of her neck for this unique twist on the Cannes 2015 favorite.
Polish actress and model Kasia Smutniak caught our eye at the Cannes premiere of Mia Madre, May 16, wearing a pure white, loose-fitting gown and gladiator-strapped heels. The star of From Paris with Love gave her demure red carpet style a punky edge with this high-knotted crown.
