With a desire to unite the international film industry, Cannes Film Festival was launched in 1932 by Jean Zay, who served as Minister of National Education and Fine Arts from 1936 until 1939. Held on the beautiful French Riviera, it is known for being one of the most glamorous events of the year, attracting filmmakers, actors, models, producers, and media from all corners of the globe.

From the annual amfAR gala event and Fashion for Relief fundraiser to photocalls and film premieres, Cannes offers more red-carpet opportunities than the average film festival to see and be seen – far more. With cinematic darlings like Marion Cotillard, Audrey Tautou, Nicole Kidman, Tilda Swinton, Uma Thurman – all of whom prefer the type of high-brow projects that are the central draw at Cannes – either walking the red carpet or serving as jury members, the festival is soaked in couture gowns and glittering diamonds.

While you wait for the 2018 Cannes Film Festival to kick off on May 8th, take a look back at some of the best red-carpet moments of the past ten years in the gallery below.
