There’s no place like Cannes. Where else could you bump into a famous actor jogging in the morning to burn off calories from a late night chocolate binge, an actress ready for the red carpet on the hit of a world premiere at the Palais , a flight attendant and her boyfriend, a filmmaker, and a itinerant Ukrainian couple all within the space of minutes during a casual stroll along the Croisette? That’s the beauty of this seaside city that never fails to disappoint when it comes to checking in with the latest street styles. From an intern’s goal of possibly giving off “the baddest bitch vibes” to the woman who wanted to “feel like a star,” see who The Hollywood Reporter bumped into below.
Occupation: Race manager
My look: It’s a pity we didn’t meet yesterday because yesterday I wore a damn crazy outfit, my man. Today is a little easier to take a walk and have breakfast. The shirt is from Smiley, an American brand. The jeans and sneakers are both from AMI Paris. I first grabbed the sneakers because I liked them so much and then two feet later, I saw the pants and thought, god damn, they’re perfect as a freaking match. The sunglasses are hella rare, they are from Bugatti and I bought them in a vintage shop without the lenses. It was just a rare list and I was happy to find them. My vibe is casual today, but I know that in Cannes I can go a bit freaky and wear things you can’t wear in normal life. It’s about 50 percent freakiness here today.
Occupation: Dancer, choreographer and teacher
My look: Mugler dress for H&M, my Maison Margiela bag, Chrome Hearts ring and sunglasses, Dior shoes. It’s my first time in Cannes and I wanted to feel like a star, so I took out this dress today and decided to work with it. It’s still such a surprise for me to be here because this trip happened suddenly so I’m just happy to be here. It is awesome.
Name: Ed Westwick
Residence: Los Angeles, New York
My look: I was in bed last night after eating too much chocolate, so I woke up this morning and knew I had to work out. I exercise quite regularly, but I thought I would run the Croisette. I’m wearing Reebok and some Represent shorts and a hat that I got at a Chopard event last night. I’ve got some movies on the market here called a thriller Dark game and I play a detective, a survival thriller Deep fear that’s a great fun movie. But today I wanted to get away from it all to feel good, stay active and soak up the atmosphere of the French Riviera. I like this kind of Mediterranean relaxed feeling mixed with the iconic movie magic.
Name: Brando & Emma
Age: 27 & 24
Occupation: Filmmaker & flight attendant
Residence: Los Angeles
My look: On Brando: The top and pants are from H.Lorenzo. My friend Mac owns it, he’s a sweet boy and I always get cool fits from him. I have the shoes from Prada in Cannes. It’s a tradition that I get a fresh pair wherever I go. The necklace was made by my friend, Emma. I have a lively, in-you-face personality and I always tell myself I’m going to try and tone down my style strategy, but I don’t.
On Emma: The shirt is from Simon Miller and I bought it from a store in West Hollywood. I bought the shoes at a vintage store for $30 and they were originally $280. I’ve worn dresses to events so I woke up and we decided to go for a walk and wear something casual before we all feel like it later tonight to get.
Occupation: Asia representative for Unifrance
My look: I wear a top from AMI, a French brand, pants from Recto, a Korean brand, and sneakers from AMI. We’re going to panel day and I didn’t do this on purpose, but the colors blue, white and red – the French colors. I bring two huge suitcases with six pairs of shoes and lots of clothes. I put everything in and don’t plan outfits or anything, just dress based on where I’m going that day and what my mood is.
Occupation: Student and sommelier trainee at Hotel du Cap
My look: My inspiration comes from Mauritius. I designed this jacket myself and made it by a tailor. I stole this shirt from my mother. The bag comes from a Japanese store, it’s really nice. When I got dressed in the morning I thought about how to be stylish in Cannes and how to give the baddest bad bitch vibes.
Occupation: Communications and Creative Manager for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation
My look: I was excited to dress up and explore France in a way that made me feel comfortable and could be an expression of who I am, so I chose this dress (from Theory). I had to fit all my clothes in a carry-on bag, but I had several things in mind, including the weather, how I would feel, and how I would like to express myself in this space. I work from home so it’s not every day I get dressed up, so the idea of being able to walk out and take a walk along the French Riviera is exciting. Dressing up was an invitation to that.
Name: Fatma Al Remaihi
Residence: Doha, Qatar
Occupation: CEO of Doha Film Institute
My look: I’m wearing a coat by 1309Studios, a Qatar-based designer named Ghada Al Subaey. I am Qatari and I love to support and showcase local designers for their beautiful designs. I also wear Papillon jewelry from Noora Al-Ansari. I always look for something comfortable because we have long days here and it’s not easy with the rain and everything. But I love highlighting local designers and supporting the fashion industry in Qatar, because fashion and art are very connected for us.
Name: Elit Andaç Cam
Occupation: Actress in Cannes selection About dry grasses
My look: This dress is from a Turkish fashion designer, Cihan Nacar, a friend of mine. I wanted exactly this kind of dress, so he made it. I feel like a sweet tomato. I wanted to be happy, cool, easy, and not wear anything too tight. That was the vibe I was going for and it’s perfect.
