The 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off its 11-day festival on May 16, located in the paradisiacal seaside town of Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in the south of France. All the A-lister celebrities hit the red carpet of the two-week event with their most glamorous looks and stunning beauty looks. And just as we suspected: there was no shortage of glitz and glamour on the red carpet. Cannes red carpet beauty looks always bring high elegance and drama, but this year is proving to be no exception, thanks to the likes of Iris Law, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Naomi Campbell and Julia Fox showing off decadent details and vivid hues that never failed to sparkle. And some of them remain to be remembered.

Shining like a true princess with silver shadows and bright pink lips, Natalie Portman took the red carpet by storm, sporting a low updo that looked spectacular with her strapless Dior gown. While others like Irina Shayk and Grace Elizabeth opted for the trend of 2023: the wet look. And while the glamour at Cannes tends to lean towards the more timeless classics, we also saw some beautifully executed avant-garde and experimental beauty moments.
