After 68 years of holding the Cannes Film Festival, one of the major aspects of the event – apart from the movie competitions – has to be the stunning red carpet outfits from Hollywood’s A-list stars.

The 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival kicks off today and is scheduled to hold from Wednesday, 11th of May to Sunday, 22nd of May 2016.

Australian director George Miller has been announced as the President of the Jury for the main competition. French actor Laurent Lafitte has been announced as the host for the opening and closing ceremonies.

The 12-day festival begins tonight with the red carpet screening of Woody Allen’s newest, Café Society, starring Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Jesse Eisenberg, Steve Carell and Parker Posey.
