Cannes 2016….Always One of Fashion’s Finest Glam Moments

Cannes Feature_TimeOut.comCannes Film Festival 2016 Red Carpet, the Fashion Event that has everyone’s attention at the moment

The French city of Cannes, known for the most famous and glitziest of film festivals is hosting the 69th annual event right now.  The city will be showcasing celebrity-studded premieres, private screenings and many glitzy parties for the 11 days, May 11-22, that comprise the event.  For me, this year, it has surpassed the Met Gala as a showplace of beautiful, mostly couture, gowns that are the highlight of the season.  There are many new gowns showing up every day, but below are just a sampling of some of our favorites that we have curated from the array of beauty in both fashion and jewelry that glitzed along this beautiful waterfront Riviera film capital…..
