Cannes Film Festival Recap: Movies, Fashion, And More

The joy of the silver screen was alive and well at the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival. From May 17th to May 28th, actors, directors, and movie-makers all came together to celebrate the power and significance of movie-making in Cannes, France. From glamorous fashion, breathtaking films, and standing ovations, here are the most HollyGood moments from this year’s Cannes Film Festival. 

Top Gun: Maverick soared at Cannes Film Festival

The film festival welcomed Tom Cruise with open arms during Top Gun: Maverick’s premiere at the festival on May 18. As the actor walked the red carpet, French fighter jets flew over in commemoration of the film. Festival president Pierre Lescure honored Tom Cruise with a Palme d’Or— a film award that has been only granted to 15 artists. 

During his honorary tribute, Tom Cruise shared his adoration for movie-making. “Thank you for being here. We’re here for you,” he said in his speech reported by Deadline. “I make these movies for all of you. I’m of you in ever meeting, in every moment. Especially in Cannes, you love movies.”

He was joined by his cast including Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, and Glen Powell, as they basked in a 5-minute standing ovation from the Cannes audience once the film finished. 

Hollywood stars stunned on the Cannes red carpet

Cannes also serves as a fashion runway for the stars as actors walked along the red carpet. While many artists showed off their fashion taste, here are some of the best looks from the festival.

Anne Hathaway shined in various pieces at this year’s Cannes from an Armani Privé gown to a Gucci blue mini dress. It seems like she took a lot of advice from her Devil Wears Prada days to make her mark on the red carpet.
