The look of the 2012 Cannes International Film Festival

Every year, new films from around the world premiere on the festival circuit. And while you’ve probably heard of some of the larger festivals – Toronto, Sundance, and Berlin, to name a few – the most prestigious and well-known is the Cannes International Film Festival.

Typically, the Cannes Film Festival lasts just under a week, and its days are filled with film screenings, benefits, galas, and the Grand Jury awards. And all those red carpet events translate into a seemingly endless parade of red carpet fashion.

Actors and supermodels rocked the red carpet in outfits that we admired from our side of the Atlantic. Statement-making stunners and edgy, contemporary looks made the strongest impact on the fashion junkies at BTR.

Here’s a look at our faves.

Kylie Minogue and Milla Jovovich used glimmering, metallic fabrics to help them stand out, and Kate Upton and Diane Kruger sported exaggerated silhouettes to make themselves memorable.

The detailing on the dresses worn by catwalkers Liu Wen and Erin Wasson made us look twice, and Sky Ferreira and Kim Kardashian showed us that today, even leather has its place on the red carpet.

We can’t wait to see what next year’s festival has in store!
