Film festival season is back and better than ever.
Cannes Film Festival has long been one of the industry’s most anticipated events, both in terms of screenings and style. We even covered our EIC Jen Atkin’s glamorous work trip to the Cannes Film Festival back in 2017!
With an infamously strict dress code and a line up of impeccable projects, this glamorous festival is a source of undying mane inspiration. And after a year of release delays and covid concerns, Cannes Film Festival 2021 is officially back. Global superstars returned to the red carpet with a bang earlier this month, gracing us with their absolute black tie best.
