Gallery: The Cannes Film Festival Kicks Off

With an abundance of A-list attendees, fashion (and the barrage?of must-see movies), few events rival the sartorial spectacle and star power of Cannes Film Festival. Press events started today with the first red carpet proceedings featuring the likes of Catriona Balfe, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts and Anna Kendrick, and the Cannes Jury - comprised notably of Kirsten Dunst and Vanessa Paradis -?were also featured.

Woody Allen's Cafe Society will open the two-week festival the film's stars Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively attended a photocall on?La Croisette earlier. Blake Lively = amazing in every way. Also, Susan Sarandon, is the queen of cool.
