- The 2023 Cannes Film Festival is being hosted in France between Tuesday and May 27.
- So far, celebrities have been wearing daring fashion everywhere — from hotels to the red carpet.
- Stars like Helen Mirren and Fan Bingbing were some of the first to show their bold styles.
Coco Jones was one of the first stars to arrive at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in a daring outfit.
She was photographed outside Hôtel Martinez wearing a purple halter gown with a bandeau top and waist cutouts.
The dress sparkled in the light and matched the singer’s rosy makeup.
Cindy Bruna was next, though she took a different approach with her fashion.
The French model wore a tweed romper with cape-style sleeves and a plunging neckline that reached her stomach.
The look was both bold and chic, especially when paired with white strappy sandals, a neon-yellow purse, and black sunglasses.
Russian actor Victoria Bonya walked the first red carpet of Cannes in a feather-covered gown.
Her green, floor-length dress was covered in long feathers across its bodice, and a sheer, crystal-covered lining sat underneath.
When the actor lifted her arms to show its off-the-shoulder sleeves, Bonya looked like a bird in flight.
Fan Bingbing brought the drama while also honoring her Chinese culture.
Her strapless ball gown was custom-made for her by Christopher Bu.
The dress had a dramatic full skirt that fanned into a train, and its bold print featured leaves and tigers, a symbol of bravery and strength in China.
French actor Pom Klementieff made the case for patent leather on the same red carpet.
Her vibrant, purple gown had long sleeves with sharp shoulder pads, a V-shaped neckline that connected to its sheer corset, and a floor-length skirt with a thigh-high slit.
To make the Versace outfit even more daring, Klementieff added matching patent-leather gloves and a thick diamond necklace.
Farhana Bodi’s lime-green gown featured a few daring trends.
The most obvious trend was neon feathers, which lined the gown’s strapless neckline, skirt, and train.
But underneath the fluff was another bold detail: a sheer corset.
Helen Mirren used accessories to her advantage at the movie screening.
Her periwinkle dress was pretty simple, with long sleeves, a V-shaped neckline, and a wrapped column skirt.
The rest of her outfit, however, was anything but. She carried a black fan printed with L’Oreal’s slogan “#WorthIt” — she’s the face of the makeup brand — and wore her hair in a dyed-blue updo.
Thai actor Araya A. Hargate wore one of the most dramatic ball gowns on the red carpet.
Her blush-colored gown was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier with a strapless corset as its bodice and an intentionally-crumbled skirt.
Carys Zeta Douglas, the daughter of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, wore a dress that was both delicate and daring.
Her sleeveless, sheer gown was crafted from white lace, and two triangle cutouts were placed across its waistline. The dress was also backless.
