It’s that time of year again; the 68th Cannes Film Festival begun today! Where films are launched, deals are made, and careers begin; From the glitz, the glamour, the tanned and the beautiful, in May Cannes, has it all.
Last year we had a look at what to pack for the film festival. This year rumours of a ‘Selfie’ ban has been flying around the press, putting pressure on outfit decisions. We can, however, confirm these are only rumours, with much relief to actors, directors, and fashionistas alike, the selfie will not be banned! We are excited to see what’s in store for Cannes film festival fashion this year.
