    Does a red carpet event truly happen if there’s no Instagram to show for it? Judging from the Cannes Film Festival, we have to answer that with a resounding… No.

    The 69th annual Cannes Film Festival is well and truly underway, as the celebs descend on the French Riviera for two weeks of fun, red carpets and glamour.

    But what happens after the A-list leave the red carpet? Well, thanks to Instagram, we now know exactly what goes down…

    While we enjoy the glamourous gowns and expensive jewellery on display, social media gives us the inside scoop on how the A-list get prepped and pampered for their red carpet debut. From designer dresses, to gorgeous backdrops, Instagram has done more for FOMO than any postcard ever did.

    Take for instance, Bella Hadid, who has perfected the sun-soaked pout as she captures her unfiltered jet-setting to Cannes. Or Eva Longoria who joins Blake Lively, Naomi Watts and Susan Surandon to celebrate another year as a L’Oreal ambassador.
