The color that makes you happy wins Cannes
The 2022 Cannes Film Festival saw its usual explosion of sequins (Sharon Stone), tulle (Elle Fanning) and lace (Emily Ratajkowski), but the overarching message from the Croisette was that color is in. prints, the red carpet was awash in shimmering rainbow shades as shimmering as any diamond sponsor.
Rebecca Hall, member of the jury, took it upon herself to launch the debates in style. She packed a suitcase full of red and pink Gucci and dark green Burberry which marked her as the directional on the board. Her scruffy pixie crop helped.
Hall was nearly surpassed by Viola Davis. Dressed by Alexander McQueen for the duration of the festival, Davis showed she could pull off sunflower yellow, Stabilo green, cherry red and hot pink within hours of each other. His thing? Everything is better with a smile.
“Viola is ready to try anything, especially strong prints, and usually ends in bold simplicity, ideally with a comfortable shoe,” her stylist Elizabeth Stewart previously said. vogue to dress the magnetic star, who chooses designers who correspond to his personal values. In addition to highlighting Davis as the most dedicated colorist at Cannes, the actor has shown a goofier side to a heritage house that’s perhaps best known for its dark, craft-centric aesthetic.
Along the way, we’ve seen a handful of Pink PP women swear allegiance to the color of summer: Valentino’s warm floral fuchsia.

Valentino haute couture dress that showed that no one does Cannes like a top model.
Balenciaga ambassador Isabelle Huppert swapped her black bodycon for head-to-toe green silk satin and looked like an absolute boss in front of the cameras, thanks to her now-iconic bug-eye hues. At 69, she has proven that there is no singular definition of Cannes glamour; it’s what you make of it. For her, it’s a pair of ankle boots. Fellow 60-year-old Sharon Stone, 64, delivered the same emerald Dolce & Gabbana memo, while flashing the peace sign at the paparazzi. She looked like she was in her element.
This year’s entrants had decades of stunning Cannes dresses to draw painterly color inspiration from. Do you remember how radiant Angelia Jolie looked in a flowing Max Azria dress when she was pregnant with twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne, in 2008? How about the one-shoulder lemon look from Atelier Versace that Amal Clooney used to outdo all the actors in 2016? Color on the red carpet expresses confidence and charisma, and who doesn’t want to shine in front of the cameras?
