Cannes Film Festival originated in the 1930s, and annually boasts a long list of cinematic releases from that year, from around the globe. Actors, actresses, directors and crew gather from around the world and celebrate cinema. But along with debuts from now famous screen sirens and the release of some of the most classic films in the world, the festival which is held on the pristine coastline of Cannes, France, it is famous for some of the most wonderfully show-stopping red carpet pieces. From Bridgette Bardot and Ingrid Bergman to Monica Belucci and Diane Kruger, the festival knows no limits for stars. The warm climate and beachside attitude is expressed in the dreamy and floaty pieces that have graced the prestigious film festivals red carpet walk.

New waves of celebrities stay true to the classic glamour that encapsulates the festival on the sea. Diane Kruger always looks sublime:
