What were the most popular colors with the celebs at this year’s Cannes Film Festival

 

Each year the greatly anticipated Cannes Film Festival takes place in France. Celebrating film from all around the world, the event provides celebrities with a fantastic opportunity to get dressed up and take to the red carpet. When it comes to fashion, the festival is up there with the most talked about annual events, with reports in their thousands published about who wore what, and millions taking to Twitter to discuss the best and worst dressed.
