The 2017 Cannes International Film Festival is upon us, and everyone who’s anyone is there on the red carpet in to-die-for-couture soaking up the south of France sun for this 11-day festival. Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Emily Ratajkowski are some of the most fashionable It Girl guests in attendance, with actresses like Elle Fanning, Jessica Chastain and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looking stunning promoting their films.
For those of you that are Cannes-beginners, I’m here to give you a crash course. Officially starting in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes) has become one of the most prominent film festivals for movies from all over the world. Movies such as The Tree of Life, Pulp Fiction, and Taxi Driver famously premiered at Cannes and led the movies to be renowned around the world.

With it’s high-status clientele of everyone from A-List actresses and It Girls, to European Royalty, the Cannes Film Festival is definitely the place to be in the middle of May.
