From Natalie Portman to Karlie Kloss: the biggest fashion icons expected in Cannes

May 6, 2015

CANNES, France - As is the case every spring, a veritable who's who of celebrities will meet for the annual celebration of the seventh art in Cannes, taking place this year from May 13-24. Besides international cinema icons, dozens of fashionistas, the instantly recognizable faces of the most luxurious of brands, will also be walking the red carpet in haute couture gowns designed by the most celebrated houses.

Natalie Portman

For two weeks, the Riviera will be brimming with actresses there to represent their films, be they in competition or not. Whether ambassadors for luxury fashion houses or not, every year French and Hollywood stars up the ante in originality and elegance to be the focus of attention as they perform the traditional march up the steps of the Palais des Festivals.

Marion Cotillard, a fixture at this annual celebration of cinema, will be on hand to defend Justin Kurzel's "Macbeth." She will most likely once again walk the red carpet wearing Dior, as will Natalie Portman, another muse for the French brand, who will present (out of competition) her directorial debut, "A Tale of Love and Darkness."

Chanel is expected to dress Diane Kruger, one of its most recognizable faces, who has the lead female role in Alice Winocour's "Maryland."

Phenomenal designs should also highlight the forms of Sophie Marceau, Sienna Miller, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Emma Stone and Charlize Theron, all eagerly awaited on the Riviera.

L'Oréal Paris it-girls and muses

Kendall Jenner, who since her appearance in Cannes last year has become an unstoppable force in the fashion world, could make a return this year. The newest darling of the designers will inevitably be the center of attention, the choice of her dress commented on and analyzed ad infinitum. Though we can expect her to be dressed in Chanel, since she has already posed for Karl Lagerfeld, Kendall can always surprise.

Cara Delevingne and Rihanna are also expected in Cannes to partake in some of the infamously wild parties.

Like every year, L'Oréal Paris will give its greatest ambassadors a chance to walk the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals. No fewer than 33 muses will be present in Cannes, including the formidable Eva Longoria (May 17 & 18), who will be celebrating her tenth anniversary with the brand, Jane Fonda (May 16 & 17), Julianne Moore (May 13 & 14), Inès de la Fressange (May 14 & 15), Liya Kebede (May 13 & 14) and Leila Bekhti (May 13).

Some of them will be present for the first time, as is the case for Luma Grothe and Soo-Joo Park, two of the cosmetic giant's newest muses.
