Cannes 2014 fashion: The best of the best

Its happening again. First it was Coachella, and now just a few months on, meet Cannes, Coachella’s rich, glamorous cousin from France. Never mind that it’s an actual Film Festival, the great and the good (including models, singers and general It people who’ve never been near a film in their lives) descend on the South of France every year for a decadent few days in the sunshine.

In what surely must be the greatest single week for designers of couture dresses, there are red carpet moments aplenty. The nice thing about Cannes (you know the s is silent, right?) fashion is that you can have out-and-out floor-length glamour right alongside nonchalant French dressing of relaxed linen jackets and sailor dresses. Unlike the Oscars or other award ceremonies, where there is always a sense of predictability – strapless, red, black, fishtail will inevitably feature – Cannes has an insouciant air of rich folk on holiday, a kind of Talented Mr Ripley vibe. And this year was no exception.

Because of its slightly more laid-back approach, its a great place to draw inspiration for your upcoming holiday/friend’s wedding/garden party, and the make-up and hair is thankfully designed to withstand the heat. Check out the amfAR gala for full-on ballgown looks akin to the Met Ball a few weeks ago, and the Cannes carpet press conferences for more wearable ensembles, with themes of white, beige and navy for foolproof chic – here are a few of the best. Now all you need is an invite to the Cavalli yacht to complete the look…
