France is lit up, the red carpet is unfolded and the paparazzi is prepped.
Once a year, the luminaries of world cinema descend to La France to applaud the artistic achievements and to party away the ‘starry’ night.
Although this eleven days fest is bequeathed to cinema screenings, premieres, and photo calls, the event the world looks out the most for is the red carpet appearances. Those breathtaking magnificent gowns, stunning eye blinding jewellery and over the top gorgeous accessories entice the ravaging fire in tabloids worldwide.
Cannes 2019 was no different and the fashion police worldwide are going gaga over this year’s illuminating and colourful red carpet ensembles of these hotshots.
Here are the glimpses of the finest dressed personalities at Cannes 2019
