Believe it or not, there is a red carpet that's more glamorous than the Oscars. Every year, the Cannes Film Festival draws in actresses from all over the world — Aishwarya Rai to Fan Bingbing and Blake Lively. Even supermodels flock to the premieres, with the likes of Irina Shayk, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner making unforgettable appearances.

Fortunately, celebs don't play it safe for these heavily photographed soirees. Wearing couture designers like Versace and Elie Saab, practically every gown makes a statement. Who could forget the baby-blue Michael Cinco Couture ballgown Aishwarya Rai wore to the 2017 festival, which looked like Cinderella's dress but 10 times grander? Or Irina Shayk's Atelier Versace from 2018, which showed so much skin that jaws were almost literally dropping on the red carpet? More recently, supermodel Bella Hadid became the talk of the town when she turned up wearing a low-cut black Schiaparelli number that had a gold lung necklace in place of a front bodice.

At the Cannes Film Festival, spectacular fashion is the norm, and the most stylish celebs from the film and fashion industries always come wearing their most daring ensembles year after year. Below, take a look at the bold and beautiful dresses from the past decade at Cannes.
