Hollywood may be known for its glamour, but the Cannes red carpet takes it to another level. The Cannes beauty looks gave us rich girl glam before TikTok ever got wind of “expensive hair” and “old money” makeup.

Every year, a significant number of festival-goers go to Cannes, a picturesque resort on the Côte d’Azur. Gala evenings include around 5,000 films and hundreds of cinematic pieces vying for the coveted Palme d’Or and other prestigious awards. The dazzling list of classics that film enthusiasts can look forward to at the Cannes film Festival in 2024 includes everything from industry veteran George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga to Jacob Elordi’s festival debut in the drama Oh, Canada.

That being said, the benefits of the Cannes Film Festival extend beyond the film enthusiast community. Given how many celebrities will be wearing impeccable outfits every night to grace the steps of the Palais des Festivals, beauty fans will be watching for every noteworthy hair and makeup moment during the 12-day event. Numerous glowing complexions have been showcased so far, ranging from Juliette Binoche’s “your skin but better” radiance to Thalia Besson’s radiant demeanour.

Here’s a look back at the best beauty moments from this year’s festival, featuring new hair colours, bombshell waves, bold red lips, and more.


Barbara Palvin showcased one of the summer’s biggest hair trends—ethereal waves—on the Cannes red carpet. Her hair, styled into soft, flowing waves, captured a boho-chic aesthetic while maintaining a glamorous edge. To complement her ethereal hairstyle, Palvin wore a vibrant red lipstick that added a touch of old-world charm to her modern bohemian look. The combination of soft waves and bold lip colour created a captivating appearance that was both glamorous and effortlessly chic.
