Joaquin Phoenix Closes the Cannes Red Carpet in Very Affordable Sneakers & More Celeb Style

The 2017 Cannes Film Festival took its bow today, wrapping up 11 days of celebrities making glamorous turns on the red carpet in the South of France.

Movie stars and supermodels stepped out in sleek dresses and shoes to ascend the staircase at the Palais des Festivals, and some of the last entertainers who helped close the ceremony made it a spectacular grand finale.

Among the many luxury brands that appeared on the red carpet, Joaquin Phoenix eschewed high-end footwear for a very affordable shoe when he paired his black suit with matching Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.

Uma Thurman had a golden moment in a shimmery Versace fringe dress with matching metallic gold sandals.

Jessica Chastain cut a romantic figure in a bespoke white Zuhair Murad crepe dress that featured ornate red crystal embellishments. The actress continued the red palette down to her shoes, where she completed the look in Christian Louboutin’s Marchavekel peep-toe platforms with knot detail.
