The last few days of the Cannes Film Festival in France have delivered some memorable fashion moments. Stars embraced glitz and glamour—a Cannes signature—but infused their looks with a sense of spunk. Many chose to invigorate their ensembles with a playful element, whether it be a cheeky silhouette or bold color. All were a good reminder that fashion should not be taken so seriously.
One highlight was actor Kristen Stewart, who attended a photocall for her film Crimes of the Future in a red tweed jumpsuit from Chanel’s resort 2023 collection. Worn without a top and with sleazy-chic aviators, she reinvented the ladies who lunch suit with an attitude. Bella Hadid, meanwhile, brought out the coveted vintage, including archival Versace and Chanel from the ’80s. Most memorably, however, she wore a slinky, white Tom Ford-era Gucci gown with hip cutouts from the fall 1996 collection. Both looks felt dressy and formal, yet entirely individualistic and representative of their own unique style.
Indelible vintage was a trend this week. Take the Junya Watanabe fall 2002 gown that Maisie Williams wore to the premiere of her new show, Pistol. The sweetheart neckline and embellishment felt chic, but when paired with her bleached brows and 2000s updo, it felt young and fresh. Amal Clooney did the same when she attended the Prince’s Trust Awards in London wearing a vintage, strapless floral number in red and white. The dress felt retro in the best way, but Clooney brought it into the now by forgoing any jewelry and accessorizing with sleek white pumps, letting the design shine entirely by itself.
