The annual Cannes Film Festival brings out the crème de la crème of onscreen starlets dressed to the nines in extravagant designer gowns--so naturally, it’s one our favorite events. Since the 2013 festival kicks off today, we thought we’d celebrate with a look back at some of the most entrancing red carpet looks throughout the years. From Catherine Deneuve's sparkling striped sheath dress in 1966 (very Marc Jacobs) to Diane Kruger's stunning silver Vivienne Westwood gown last year, there are so many unforgettable moments, it's incredible. Keep reading for these standout looks and more, plus, stay tuned for this year’s best-dressed roundup later this month!
