Cannes 2015, by the numbers: The best red carpet moments from the festival, decoded
After a glitzy 12 days of back-to-back photocalls, premieres and parties, the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival has officially wrapped. Every year, the film festival brings a glitzy throng of Hollywood and international stars to the French Riviera, infinite outfit inspo in tow. But just glancing at how whopping our red carpet gallery is this year, 2015 may be the biggest and starriest yet. Overwhelming? Maybe. Cue, this handy recap, which gives you a play-by-play of what went down on the Cannes 2015 red carpet. From naming the celebrity making the most appearances (Sienna Miller, of course) to to the most popular designer choice (Dior), we recount all the glorious looks that captured our hearts and play catch-up with the year’s most glam film festival.
Whiz through this list and view all 115 looks in our accompanying red carpet gallery.
The number of times celebrities wore Dior, making it the most popular designer choice at the Cannes Film Festival. Brand ambassadors Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard each were spotted in the designer brand three times, (surprise, surprise) as well as others picking up the wares at Dior’s Majestic Hotel suite.
The number of sheer and skin-baring outfits we spotted on the red carpet, making it the most popular trend of the week.
The number of impressive and transformative outfits Cannes judge Sienna Miller donned throughout the 12-day film festival. She kicked things off elegantly and conventionally in Balenciaga and Lanvin before experimenting with more eccentric and dramatic outfits by Valentino, Sonia Rykiel and Gucci that will no doubt end up in the best-dressed Cannes books.
The number of times we spotted stars accessorizing with Chopard jewels. As the sponsor for the film festival and the designer behind the prestigious Palme d’Or award, we’re not surprised.
The number of models we saw walking at the premiere of Youth. Probably to practice their poses and pouts in preparation for next day’s super glitzy amfAR Gala.
The number of times we counted a celebrity wearing blue on the red carpet, making it the colour of choice to stand out amongst the sea of black and white outfits.
The number of celebrities who opted for British Couture house Ralph & Russo over French and Italian heavyweights, proving it’s the new red carpet fave.
The number of artisans and couturiers behind Fan Bingbing’s bespoke Ralph & Russo cape gown at the opening ceremony.
