The 72nd Cannes Film Festival is underway in the French Riviera right now, and Instagram is buzzing with hashtags, red carpet photographs and lots of fashion inspiration! What experimental is to the Met Gala, elegance is to the Cannes red carpet and, as we ‘ooo’ and ‘aaah’ at all the glamorous looks that make our way, let’s take a moment to appreciate the evolution of Cannes red carpet beauty as well. On closer inspection, it is revealed that the multiple cat-eyes, bouffants, red pouts, and glowing skin, have been red carpet favourites since 1952! Prepare for a major throwback as we count down to the best beauty looks the Cannes red carpet has seen over the years.
