This year’s Cannes Film Festival certainly did not disappoint with its amazing roster of films, blinding star power from celebrity guests, and remarkable fashion moments both on and off the red carpet. But while countless A-list stars have stepped out in stunning dresses and stylish ensembles, two of Hollywood’s elite have consistently been shaking up the event with their impressive sartorial choices.
Blake Lively served up completely different but equally stunning looks that showcase her impeccable taste and flair for fashion. Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart brought her signature cool-girl style in chic and edgy outfits from Chanel.
Here are some of the most memorable looks from Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival:
After making breathtaking entrances at the photocall and premiere of Cafe Society, Blake attended the press luncheon in a gold dress from Valentino. It featured a sleeveless design, thin shoulder straps, a draped detail, ribbon ties around the waist, and soft pleats on the skirt. Her tousled locks cascaded down one shoulder, and she completed her look with red lips and shoes from Jimmy Choo.
Later that day, she showed up at the Vanity Fair and Chanel dinner party in a statement coat from Chanel over a white-and-red striped minidress. It featured sequin embellishments and was adorned with blue, red, and pale pink flowers on the cuffs and hem. Glittering heels from Christian Louboutin finished off her look.
The 28-year-old stunner was also spotted at the photocall for The Shallows in a Giambattista Valli spring 2016 couture look. She wore a minidress with contrasting elements such as a pleated cape detail and a printed bodice. Pale pink lips and black-and-white striped pumps from Christian Louboutin provided the finishing touches to her effortlessly chic look.
Blake had a princess moment while attending the premiere of Ma Loute (Slack Bay) in a gorgeous mint gown from Vivienne Westwood Couture. It featured a sleeveless design, an embellished bodice, and a tiered ruffle skirt. Her hair was styled in a chic updo, and she completed her look with a pair of striped pumps.
Finally, Blake made a stunning entrance at the premiere of The BFG while looking every bit like a Hollywood superstar in a custom blue one-shouldered gown from Atelier Versace. Her gorgeous dress featured beaded embellishments, a thigh-high slit, a floor-length skirt, and a sweeping train. She swept her hair up in a wavy ponytail, and she finished off her glamorous look with jewels from Lorraine Schwartz and strappy heels from Christian Louboutin.
After delivering three effortlessly cool and chic outfits during the beginning of the film festival, Kristen continued to represent designer label Chanel in a number of impressive looks. But while she was out and about in Cannes, she was spotted wearing a black contrast stripe jacquard dress from Cushnie et Ochs under a black leather motorcycle jacket from Saint Laurent. She styled it with round sunglasses from Oliver Peoples, her favorite necklace from Jillian Dempsey, and a pair of black oxford shoes from Freda Salvador.

The Chanel muse stepped out on the red carpet at the premiere of American Honey in an all-black ensemble from the label’s spring 2016 couture collection. She wore a short-sleeved top tucked into a satin skirt with a pleated tulle detail on the back. A side-swept hairstyle, an assortment of jewels, and a pair of peep-toe heels provided the finishing touches to her look.
After a slew of all-black outfits, Kristen showed up at the photocall for Personal Shopper in a nude metallic dress from Chanel’s fall 2016 line. It featured long sleeves, a drawstring waist, and ribbed trims. She styled it with a side-parted bob, dark berry lips, and a pair of silver ankle-strap pumps.
