As far as we’re concerned, Cannes isn’t just an annual celebration of film. It’s a fête of style, as well: the year’s apex of red carpet couture, with editorial beauty ensembles to match. This year’s festivities kick off today, so while we wait for the red carpet goodness to start trickling in, we’re celebrating every head-turning look from 2016's festival.
