2016 marks the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival held in the picturesque seaside town in France, and as the most important event of the film world kicks off, all the stars flock in dressed to nines, of course.

Movie stars, models and musicians from all over the world walk the red carpet, putting their fanciest foot forward as they promote their upcoming films in the hopes to win the favour of the tough festival jury, whose commendation almost guarantees the international success of a movie.

The stylish affair has brought in Hollywood’s finest, from Cannes Queen Blake Lively, who debuted her second baby bump in a dazzling gown, to Victoria Beckham, who sported an edgy pantsuit.

Honorable mentions have to be made for Julianne Moore, who made jaws drop in an embellished black number, and to our very own Naomi Watts, who looked nothing less than a fairy princess in a fitting lilac gown.
