The Cannes Film Festival. A place where two movies a day are screened for two weeks, billions of dollars change hands and the stars pose, play and party. As the 2015 event approaches, we look back at the most glamorous Instagram photos from the last few years...
Carey Mulligan, by @Gatsbymovie
The undisputed queen of the Cannes, Carey Mulligan premiered not one, but two films at the festival in 2013 - and received standing ovations for both. Every inch the Hollywood superstar, she also looks ridiculous glam on the red carpet. We. Love. Her.
Chopard jewels, by @ChopardOfficial
Beautiful beautiful jewels from Chopard's red carpet collection, flown over to Cannes for the lucky A-listers to choose from. Jealous.
Doutzen Kroes, by @Doutzenkroes1
Victoria's Secret model Doutzen Kroes looked like she was having a whale of a time on her way to the red carpet last year. 'With the police in #Cannes in my #versace dress;) #fun,' she wrote. We'll say…
Sharon Stone leaving Roberto Cavalli's yacht, by @ franckprovostparis
There's no finer way to do Cannes than from the comfort of a super-yacht. The bigger, the better, obviously. Lucky Sharon Stone.
Jessica Biel, by @JessicaBiel
Jessica Biel looked rather serious as she prepared to hit the red carpet for the premiere of hubby Justin Timberlake's film Inside Llewyn Davis. We can't take our eyes off that HUGE Bulgari necklace.
Michael Cane, by @laurabaileylondon
Laura Bailey looked back at film festivals' past when she shared an iconic snap of Michael Cane at a press conference in 1966. 'Once upon a time in #cannes. #lucky #alfie,' she captioned the snap. Sigh...
Piper-Heidsieck champagne, by @MarieclaireUK
In 2013, eponymous champagne label Piper-Heidsieck celebrated 20 years as the official supplier to the Cannes Film Festival. Apparently Marilyn Monroe was a fan. Cheers.
Macy Grey, by @Rosiehw
We want your life, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
The Bling Ring cast, by @blingringmovie
Emma Watson and her Bling Ring co-stars got into character after a press conference on the Croisette.
Cara Delevingne, Sacha Baron-Coen and Isla Fisher, by @CaraD
Cara was rather taken with Isla and her British hubby when she bumped into them at the official Great Gatsby after-party (which looked amazing, by the way). 'What a couple! These two make me wanna get married,' she wrote.
The press room, by @nadianeo.
While the stars walk the red carpet and billions of dollars in business change hands, the press cover the event by the hour. Phew!
Rooney Mara and Francisco Costa, by @HanneliMustaparta
We heart Rooney's nude Calvin Klein dress.
Red carpet photographers, by @MarieclaireUK
In Cannes, it's not just any old red carpet. Access is strictly limited, and even the photographers dress up. Don't they look glam?
Jimmy Choo accessories, by @jimmychooltd
Rebel bag & Sasha sunglasses. The perfect accessories for Cannes.
Carey Mulligan and the Coen Brothers, by @karimrahmanmakeup
Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Oscar Isaacs and the Coen brothers received a 10 minute standing ovation at the premiere of indie movie Inside Llewyn Davis. Wow.
Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, by @ellenvonunwerth
Captured as only a photographer could…
Photography stands, by @MarieclaireUK
Photographers and journalists took a rare break from star spotting - presumably to sleep. Zzzz.
The outdoor cinema, by rivrevak
'Outdoor cinema...Somerset house what!? #cannes #cannes2013,'. What indeed.
Cannes tickets, by @mathiaspardo
The coolest Cannes montage you'll ever see
The croisette, by @crimainardi
THIS is the reason Hollywood comes to Cannes…
