Kicking off this year’s festival on Wednesday at the Palais des Festivals, Bella Hadid looked chic when she was escorted by her father, Mohamed Hadid, while clad in a gown by Alexandre Vauthier and shoes by Olgana Paris. Also taking part in the fashion parade was actress Chompoo Araya, who looked ethereal in a white Ralph & Russo dress that featured a long feathered cape and train.
Last year Jourdan Dunn created a stunning moment when she glided up the staircase with a handler holding her gown, and supermodel Petra Nemcova also shared the red carpet while clad in a red dress that inspired a spin in her heels.
At the 2014 Cannes Film Festival Uma Thurman looked chic in a bright yellow dress that had fabric billowing in the wind, and two years earlier Diane Kruger nodded court style when she strutted in a structured gown in the rain.
In 2009 Dita Von Teese took her Christian Louboutin pumps down the red carpet in a strapless black and white dress, and in 2007 she stepped out in a floor-length icy gray ensemble.
