    Kirsten Dunst made the rounds at Cannes in support of boyfriend Garrett Hedlund’s highly anticipated Coen Brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis. Hairstylist Giannandrea used Kerastase's Mousse Volumactive ($35) and Ecru New York's Acacia Protein Oil ($30) for texture. “The key to this particular bun is to divide the hair into two sections,” he says. “Twist them into each other to make one single bun and you must secure it as you wrap, with short straight pins, both long and small.”

    Solange accessorized her white jumpsuit with Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro ($32) in Tibetan Orange for Chanel’s Cannes party with Vanity Fair.

    If you can peel your eyes away from Jessica Biel’s spectacular Bulgari necklace, you’ll notice her wonderfully flushed cheeks. Try Too Faced’s Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Color ($21) in Sweet Pea layered underneath Tom Ford’s new Limited Edition Illuminating Cheek Blush ($58) in Guilt.

    The international face of L’Oreal shares our orange crush! She paired her tangerine eye shadow with bright nails of the same shade, specifically L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish ($6) in L’Orange.

    Rooney Mara’s in Cannes to celebrate the premiere of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, her new film with Casey Affleck, but she’s also celebrating beauty news: the actress is the new face of Calvin Klein Downtown, their latest fragrance. It’s safe to assume she’s wearing it from one red carpet to the next.

    Kroes’ pristine white Calvin Klein gown provided the perfect backdrop for L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Luminous Lipstick ($10) in British Red.

  • Joan Smalls

    A parade of sleek, center parts marched down spring’s runways, so Joan Smalls is already familiar with this look. But the model’s hairstylist, Johnnie Sapong, fought the humidity of Cannes by combing Leonor Greyl’s Serum de Soie ($44) into her scalp and spritzing the brand’s Huile Secret de Beauté ($66) on top for added shine.

  • Freida Pinto

    Freida Pinto wore L’Oreal’s Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick ($10) in Refined Ruby to the premiere of Young & Beautiful.

  • Marion Cotillard

    Makeup artist Christophe Danchaud was inspired by Marion Cotillard’s ‘60s bouffant (built by hairstylist Robert Vetica). “I wanted to keep the makeup fresh to modernize the look,” he said. To make Tarte’s Waterproof Eyeliner ($19) in Navy really pop, he coated the ends of Cotillard’s lashes with Dior’s Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Primer ($28) and coated them in Kjaer Weis’ Eye Shadow ($) in Blue Wonder. “The navy was more youthful and flirty; black would’ve completely changed the feel.”

    Sofia Coppola’s at Cannes for the world premiere of her hugely anticipated film, The Bling Ring. She may have requested a discontinued Chanel lipstick for the film, but she wore Dior Addict’s Lipstick ($31) in Baby Rose 561 on the red carpet.

The fashion world’s fallen in love with Cara Delevingne’s tomboy style and punk attitude, but the model popped up at Cannes’ premiere of The Great Gatsby looking movie star glam. She accessorized her Burberry dress with both a smoky eye and a glossy red lip. For the latter, paint on Burberry’s Lip Cover ($30) in Deep Burgundy and top it off with the brand’s Lip Glow ($27) in Ruby.
