Celebs sure "cannes" rock a red carpet...

Last week, the beautiful city of Cannes welcomed artists and professionals from around the world to celebrate continue their annual tradition of celebrating cinema. Though the mission of the film festival has always been promote films and boost the film industry internationally, to the fashion world these premiers have come to mean one thing: gowns. Correction, gorgeous gowns. Not only does the festival celebrate cinema that gains widespread popularity, but also works admired for their original aim and aesthetic. Also aesthetically original? The stunning designer dresses that are works of art themselves. Here are a few of my favorites:

Gwen Stefani in custom L.A.M.B. and Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Haute Couture.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Elie Saab (left) and Lanvin (right).
Rachel McAdams in Marchesa and Linda Cardellini in Alberta Ferretti.
