The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing this week and while all eyes will be on the films, we can’t forget about the fashion our favorite stars will wear there! And since the festival is in France, we’re obviously going to be dressed appropriately all week in homage.

In this week’s Style Study, we’re teaching you step-by-step how to get the perfect French look, just like you're stepping onto the Cannes red carpet!

 

Makeup

Playing up the eyes is a must, with thick eyeliner and lots of mascara to show them off. Keep the rest of the face natural but add some red lip for a dramatic touch.

 

Hair

Hello bouffant hair! This look is very ‘60s French/New Wave that just never seems to go out of style. The beauty of it is it can be done a number of different ways -– from a ponytail to a twist to a half up-do!

Stripes

Stripes seems to be a staple when it comes to the French wardrobe and keeping it black-and-white makes it classy and elegant, whether you’re dressing it up or dressing it down.

 

High-Waisted Pants

Strolling around Cannes during your downtime? Stay trendy with some high-waisted pants and play it up with either a crop top or flowly blouse for that romantic look.

 

Flowy Dresses

Whether you’re going for a night on the town or heading to the café for coffee, the perfect dress is essential. A pleated skirt like Lucy Hale’s keeps it casual, while Kendall Jenner’s flowy mini keeps it fun and flirty.
