Cannes Film Festival 2018 Best Looks  From the refined Cate Blanchett to the always cool Chloe Sevigny

Ready. Steady. Go.

The Cannes Festival has begun.

Many innovations in this 71 edition: the absence of any Netflix license plate (because "the cinema must still be a shared experience in the dark of a room"), the ban on selfies on the red carpet, the fight against harassment with the establishment of a telephone number to report any kind of abuse and the hashtag #nerienlaisserpasser.

As well as many films, in competition or not, from Todos los Saben by the Iranian director Asghar Farhadi with the super couple Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, to Dogman the new work by Matteo Garrone, from The House that Jack Built by Lars von Trier starring Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman. The touching Wildlife, the directorial debut of the actor Paul Dano with Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, or The Man Who Killed Don Quixote by director Terry Gilliam who has had a long and controversial gestation period from Cannes lasting 17 years.

To judge all these works, in the various sections, we find the likes of Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and Léa Seydoux and Benicio Del Toro.

Like every year, from May 8 to 19, the Cannes Croisette is filled, with stars who compete for attention not only with their films but above all, with outfits.

The most elegant, so far, is Julianne Moore, perfect in both her red Givenchy and in black Saint Laurent dresses; the biggest fashion casualty are stars like Kiko Mizuhara; the uber it girl is still Chloè Sevigny in Chanel; same brand chosen by the cool Kristen Stewart; while the prize for the most refined goes to Cate Blanchett, who has amazed everyone by wearing an Armani Privé in black lace already exhibited for the Golden Globes of 2014.

A curiosity: the trend of this year in Cannes are the suits, preferably in pastel shades, sported in different versions (all beautiful) off the red carpet by Lea Seydoux, Cate Blanchett and Kristen Stewart.

Here are the best looks of the Cannes Film Festival 2018.
