The Cannes Film Festival 2024 red carpet is in full swing, with celebrities like Greta Gerwig and Meryl Streep showcasing their festival finest. The event attracts a mix of American and international celebrities, filmmakers, and models, turning the Croisette into a renowned catwalk in France. Designers use this platform to display couture pieces that might otherwise go unnoticed.

In 2023, some of the most memorable red carpet looks came from Cannes, including Elsa Hosk’s Viktor & Rolf couture gown and Elle Fanning’s silver Paco Rabanne dress adorned with tinsel-like paillettes. The festival’s strict dress code has been a topic of discussion since 2015 when reports emerged of women being turned away for not wearing heels. This led to protests by actors like Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart, who opted to go without heels in defiance.

The dress code for the Cannes Film Festival 2024 states that attendees must wear a dinner jacket with a bow tie or an evening dress to gala screenings. Alternatively, they can opt for a cocktail dress, dark trouser suit, dressy top with black trousers, black dress, or a black/midnight blue suit with a bow tie. Elegant shoes are a must, with heels being optional, while trainers are not allowed.

The Cannes red carpet is known for its high fashion standards, ranking just below the Met Gala and above the Oscars in terms of style expectations. It’s a time for couture and over-the-top glam, where even unconventional choices like thong sandals, as sported by Jennifer Lawrence, can make a statement.
