It’s in the Cannes

Oohing and aahing over summery couture and statement jewels at the annual French film fest

Anna Kendrick

Between Kirsten Dunst’s ’50s-style lemony day dress, Amal Clooney’s floaty Versace buttercup gown, and Jessica Chastain’s goldenrod Jessica Rabbit–style Armani number, yellow was the clear red-carpet winner at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Add one more to that list: Kendrick’s marigold Stella McCartney gown, which she wore with white-hot Bulgari diamonds.

Cheryl Cole

Capitalizing on the always–appropriate spring floral trend, singer and L’Oréal ambassador Cole chose a traffic-stopping, intricately embroidered Naeem Khan spring 2016 strapless style. The former X Factor judge amped up the wow factor with beautifully pale pink coral jewels—which picked up the gown’s sheer blush fabric—from de Grisogono.
