See all the stars as they hit the red carpet

The 70th  Cannes Film Festival is finally upon us, and some of the world’s most iconic stars have jetted into the French Riviera, ready to hit the Croisette in style.

Last year, Kristen Stewart stole the show in Chanel everything, while Blake Lively killed it in an array of dresses including a stunning bright blue Versace dress. It was also the year everyone wore suits on the red carpet, and we loved it.

This year, like the last, we’re expecting an impressive selection of glamorous gowns from the annual 11-day event, as the fashion world’s lead designers dress the film world’s leading ladies.

And from what we’ve seen so far at the opening ceremony, this year is set to be as glamorous as ever (see the most iconic Cannes dresses here). Models were out in force, with Bella Hadid leading the way in a powder pink Alexandre Vauthier dress, paired with a diamond necklace. She also rather sweetly brought her dad as her date.

Hayley Baldwin stood out in a cobalt blue Twinset peplum gown, while Emily Ratajkowski opted for a slinky number by the same designer.

This is just the beginning though, as we’re expecting a lot more celebrities on the red carpet. Nicole Kidman is presenting three films, The Beguiled, How to talk to Girls at Parties, and The Killing of  a Sacred Deer, so we’re amazing she’s got quite an extensive wardrobe for her many predicted appearances. We’re also waiting on Kristen Stewart, Robin Wright, Michelle Williams and Tilda Swinton.

Of course, there’s all the parties off the red carpet too (those yachts won’t fill themselves). The likes of Gigi Hadid, Rihanna and Cara Delevingne are regulars, and we can’t wait to see what their take on boat chic is.

Take a look below at the hottest red carpet looks so far…
