The Annual Cannes Film Festival is a fashion event in disguise. It lasts for days and the celebrities in attendance have an arsenal of jaw-dropping clothes at their disposal so there’s nothing else to do but feast your eyes on the parade of stunning gowns.

This year’s festival did not disappoint. If anything, it might have even topped last year just because of the serious style appearances. To prove our point, check out these celebrities decked out in some of the most precious gowns we have ever seen:

1. Diane Kruger

The 33-year-old arrived in a fun Valentino Spring 2015 couture gown. It also has a halter feature but made more interesting with its kite-like design and embellishments.

3. Lupita Nyong’O

The “12 Years a Slave” actress was a breath of fresh air in her green Gucci plisse gown that boasts of embellished shoulder and cape detailing. It is one of the more unconventional dresses at the festival but it suited Lupita’s skin tone and general aesthetic perfectly. The movement of the dress also made the actress have fun on the red carpet.

4. Eva Longoria

This Atelier Versace gown is undoubtedly all about drama. The exaggerated pleats, the shape that hugged the actress’ form and the neckline all suggested an entrance that won’t be missed by anyone.

5. Cate Blanchett

The actress looked like she’s running away from her prince, nearly dropping one of her shoes in this Giles Fall 2015 gown. This gown not only offers a striking volume but also a print that sets itself apart from the rest of the red carpet gowns that day.

You will have a hard time peeling your eyes away from this Ashi Studio Spring 2015 couture gown. The embossed detail is gorgeous and the feathery touch at the hem served to cap off the extravagant flair of the gown.

7. Naomi Watts

This Elie Saab Spring 2015 couture gown looks so similar to the one Araya Hargate wore. The difference is that it is heavily embellished, has a plunging neckline and short sleeves for a polished but elegant look.

8. Petra Nemcova

This Lanvin Fall 2015 gown may have been one of the simplest at the event, but it definitely didn’t fall behind in class. The hue complemented the 33-year-old’s complexion and the shape gave the look a Grecian vibe.
