Decades of Dresses from Cannes All in One Infographic

The Cannes Film Festival is officially in full swing. Film fans that we are, we’re obviously keeping close watch on which flicks take the top awards, but let’s be real: Until those films make their way to theatres, we’re way more interested in what’s walking down the red carpet.

So we were delighted to come across this fab infographic of notable styles worn to past Festivals De Cannes. If it looks familiar, that’s because it was created by MediaRun, the same agency that created this illustration of dresses worn by “Best Actress” winners at the Academy Awards. It’s certainly a diverse group, from Madonna’s two piece in 1991, to Britt Ekland’s floral floor-length number in 1969 (my personal favorite is Vanessa Redgrave’s polka-dotted micro-mini-and-leggings combo from 1967). Take a look and be sure to let us know in the comments what takes top prize in your book.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.
