The 2012 Cannes International Film Festival is an annual star-studded event held in Cannes, France. In addition to showcasing new films, the fashion choices of its celebs are always on display. Who are the top 8 Cannes fashionistas this year?
Eva Longoria, 37, famous for "Desperate Housewives," is so beautiful she could wear a potato sack and still look terrific. That's why it's such a treat to see how gorgeous she looks in couture. The actress, who appears in "The Baytown Disco," among others, wore a delicately embroidered backless Marchesa gown with a super long flowing tulle train. It was just one of her many excellent choices.
Can you be the belle of the ball at 72? Jane Fonda can. Once again, the award-winning actress looked stunning at Cannes. The sexy senior wore a formfitting shiny bronze Atelier Versace gown with sheer overlay covering her chest and arms.
German born actress Diane Kruger, 35, was another fashionista at Cannes. The "Farewell, My Queen" actress wore a sexy Versus maroon lace-up mini paired with black Jimmy Choo sandals.
Tilda Swinton is known for taking fashion to another level. Her choices are unique, but never over-the-top. The 51-year-old actress, famous for her minimal make-up, minimal jewelry and short blonde hair, wore a gorgeous bronze Haider Ackermann gown to the "Moonrise Kingdom" premiere, a film in which she stars.
The spotlight hit pretty "Slumdog Millionaire,"s Freida Pinto at 2012 Cannes. The 27-year-old Indian actress also seemed to have taken some lessons from Angelina Jolie. Pinto struck a pose by sticking her leg out of her gown, such as her beautiful Michael Angel gown that has a leg baring slit in its flowing pink bottom.
Bérénice Bejo, 35, who stars in "The Artist," looked stunning at Cannes. The striking brunette wore a red Louis Vuitton gown to the "Moonrise Kingdom" premiere.
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey, 25, kept it simple at Cannes, and yet she managed to look absolutely stunning. The singer and songwriter chose a strapless, black Alberta Ferretti gown for the "Moonrise Kingdom" premiere.
Czech model and actress Eva Herzigová, 39, is another beautiful star who can wear whatever she wants and always look good. She, too, attended the "Moonrise Kingdom" opening, and she did it in a lovely white Dolce & Gabbana gown topped with a stunning diamond necklace.
