Bay-of-Cannes_main_O

So many gorgeous starlets opt for a white or black ensemble for major red carpet events. While those shades are absolutely gorgeous in their own right, there’s something about Cannes that makes a colored look so much more alluring. Perhaps it’s because Cannes looks like the picture above? Yes, that’s why. There’s a tropical, sexy, chic feel – all begging to be explored with rich tones. Here are six of the best-dressed ladies, all wearing bold, brazen colors.

1. Julianne Moore in Givenchy Couture

This deep, dark red looks absolutely incredible with Julianne’s red hair. I also love the lip color!

2. Charlize Theron in Christian Dior

Barbie be jealous. Enough said.

3. Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen

Salma has always been queen of the sexy. This dress is curve-hugging, classy and bold in all the right ways.

All the yes. This color sings on her beautiful skin.

5. Natalie Portman in Dior

Simple, stunning red never hurt anyone. Natalie is a class-act, and this dress suits her perfectly.

6. Miranda Kerr in Emanual Ungaro

My absolute favorite dress of all of Cannes, hands down, even if there’s potential for boob exposure.
