Hollywood’s glitterati know that red carpet events turn heads. Award shows and movie premiers offer opportunities for opulence and dazzling displays of glamour, so perhaps the most brilliant thing about the Cannes Film Festival, which kick starts the summer every year in the south of  France, is that there are umpteen events at which the stars can shine and strut their stuff. Here are three gorgeous looks that rocked the red carpet at Cannes this year, setting the tone for a sizzling summer.

Regal and Radiant

Uma Thurman, at age 43, is more beautiful than ever in this  bold yet elegant pearl- toned gown. We love how the mix of classic and futurist styling in the  sleekly structured bodice contrasts with the softy flowing skirt and train. Her elegantly slicked back hairstyle works well with the dangly diamond earrings, balanced perfectly by two shimmering bracelets. All in all, Thurman’s luminescent look radiates strength and poise.

Sophisticated and Sexy

No stranger to the red carpet,  Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain looks like a starlet from days gone by in this demure yet stunning long sleeved gown circa 1935. We  simply adore this “more is less” approach. All this beautifully cut dress requires is the elegant jeweled pendant to accessorize, and of course,  Chastain’s scarlet tresses  swept to the side in a retro wave. Very Chic!

Fabulous and Fashion Forward

Our favorite look from Cannes comes from singer and fashion standout Solange Knowles. Sailing in on this summer’s trend for vintage-inspired  fabrics, Solange is breathtaking in a windswept champagne gown. Her  fabulous natural curls are a perfect match for this  dramatically feminine dress, and the sparkly drop earrings add just the right amount of contrast to the organic, earth-toned look. Cutting-edge perfection!
