The 67th annual Cannes Film Festival was held from May 14-25, 2014 in Cannes, France. It’s known for being very glamorous and drawing actresses and models from around the world who walk the red carpet in stunning gowns. During the course of the festival, there are many photocalls, film screenings, and parties that celebrities dress to be photographed for.

Some of the ladies attending the festival found more than one stunning gown to wear. Most notable were Cate Blanchett, and models Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio – best known from Victoria’s Secret fame. Ms. Blanchett wore a beautiful sheer gray gown with crystal embellishments to a party celebrating the Chopard jewelry company; and another gown with a colorful bodice that looked like a design of feathers or scales to a film screening. Ms. Lima and Ms. Ambrosio also commanded attention at the Chopard party in jewels and a gown of white and pale gold, respectively. Ms. Lima amped up the sex appeal for another look on the red carpet; wearing a skin tight nude bodice and wrap skirt that was cut almost up to her waist on one side. Ms. Ambrosio walked the red carpet as well in all-over sparkling silver.

Demonstrating the sex appeal of a beautifully draped fabric on the right body were Naomi Watts, Sonam Kapoor, Petra Nemcova, and Uma Thurman. Ms. Watts wore a gray chiffon gown with crystal embellishments at the bustline and waist. Ms. Kapoor wore a similar fabric in an ethereal ice blue tone. Petra Nemcova looked lovely in blush pink and lace. Uma Thurman made a bold choice with a draped gown in extremely bright golden yellow.

Here we’ve discussed just a sampling of the gorgeous fashion seen over the 11 days of the festival. A lot of photographs of those attending the festival show the sheer amount of photographers lined up along the red carpet – imagine if you left your house to go to an event and when you arrived there were literally dozens and dozens of photographers both facing and behind you. That will give one just an inkling of the amount of anxiety that the women must feel when they are dressing and then walking the red carpet. But enough about that, enjoy the slideshow!
