The 66th Cannes Film Festival certainly never lacked in style. Fancy yachts, gourmet food, bottomless wines, and an army of fashionable actresses wearing their cutest festival frocks. People involved seem to be having the time of their lives!

But aside from the partying and mingling, many celebs were busy promoting their individual films. Among them was Ahna O’Reilly.

I didn’t love her character, Elizabeth Leefolt, in the 2011 movie The Help, but I definitely admired her character’s ’60s style. The array of floral dresses she wore gave me no end of ’60s fashion fantasies.

It turned out that in real life, Ahna can give Elizabeth Leefolt a run for her money when it comes to fashion chops.

Ahna wore a swoon-worthy Georges Hobeika dress on the seventh day of the festival. The dress — with its sheer material, sequin adornment, appliqués, and a full floral skirt — looks like one a fairy tale princess would wear. This is taking spring to the next level!

This Georges Hobeika dress is from the designer’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Ahna did a great job picking it from the dresses in this collection.

I think she looked divine in it. The dress suited her feminine features. The low-rise bun was also a nice touch. It allowed the dress to shine more.

Like Ahna, we too are smitten by ethereal floral dresses. If you can’t get your hands on the same Georges Hobeika frock, try the following daytime dresses from Shopbop and Nordstrom instead:
