May 23

With the Cannes 2022 red carpet sizzling with celebrities like Tom Cruise and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, we were excited to see the movies premiering this year, and boy were we not disappointed!

The Cannes Film Festival is returning with all its glory for 2022, for its traditional May dates after a late summer edition in Cannes Film Festival 2021 and a cancellation the previous year, bringing with it all the glamor that comes with the annual celebration of fashion and film.

Celebrities have already begun arriving in the south of France in preparation for this year's festival, with Julianne Moore, Rebecca Hall, and Adriana Lima displaying some fashionable jet-set flair ahead of the formal Opening Ceremony.

This year's lineup of films is nothing if not impressive, so we can expect a steady stream of prominent faces visiting the Croisette red carpet and ascending those iconic stairs over the next two weeks, from Anne Hathaway to Kristen Stewart. Along with the main premieres, there will be a slew of dinners, events, and parties, ensuring that we'll be treated to lots of gorgeous moments.
