May continues to be the biggest month in the fashion calendar with two weeks of red carpet glamour at the Cannes Film Festival with the hottest celebrities and models showing off their best looks. Here are our top trends from the Cannes red carpet.


Red on the Red Carpet 

Cannes 2022

Kaia Gerber in Celine, Deepika Padukone in Louis Vuitton, and Izabel Goulart in Ashi Studio

 

While some may consider it a fashion faux pas, the stars at Cannes definitely didn’t agree as they brought an array of gorgeous red gowns to the Film Festival. Deepika Padukone wore a stunning red satin Louis Vuitton gown with a peplum waist for her red carpet appearance, model Izabel Goulart went for a red jumpsuit from Ashi Studio with a statement feather train, while Kaia Gerber opted for a simpler halter neck gown from Celine.

The tulle trend has yet to die down and had a strong presence on the Cannes red carpet, with voluminous ballgowns and statement trains everywhere you looked. We particularly loved Cindy Bruna’s stunning pink tulle gown from Giambattista Valli, and Kat Graham wearing Ashi Studio using tulle to create a unique bodice and a huge train.
