The 66th annual Cannes Film Festival is under way with the help of our favorite A-listers, who aren't afraid to show off their style or beauty chops. With every sunny (and even not-so-sunny) photocall in the French Riviera, we're highlighting the chic daytime ensembles the stars wear before they hit the red carpet — just check out Jessica Biel looking cool in colorblock; Rachel Bilson in a polished ensemble; and Karolína Kurková rocking crisp white denim. Then click through to see stars doing what they do best: showing off their perfectly chic daytime outfits for the cameras.
One of the first things we spotted when Beyoncé shared snaps of her and Jay-Z's recent anniversary trip to Cuba was her smashing Tabitha Simmons striped espadrille sneakers ($395). Against the backdrop of her black blazer and leather pants, they stood out in the best way. Even if you're not jet-setting to exotic locales like Bey, you can still get her look locally. Work her exact Simmons espadrilles into your Summer wardrobe with everything from dresses to denim cutoffs. We also love the idea of sporting them with other bold patterns for a mixed-prints styling. Ready to treat your feet? Score Beyoncé's shoes, then be sure to shop other celebrity must-have items while you're at it.
Day eight at Cannes is proving just as glamorous as the very first day on the festival's red carpet. On par with Cannes past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. Yesterday's round of events were no exception — just click through for jaw-dropping arrivals from the supermodel crew at the Behind the Candelabra premiere, plus Jessica Chastain and even Sharon Stone at the postpremiere parties. It doesn't stop there; inside you'll find every Cannes appearance so far, so just keep clicking — and stay tuned for all the red carpet action right here.
Sienna Miller took to the streets of NYC sporting cool distressed boyfriend jeans — but she didn't style them in the traditional slouchy fashion we've grown accustomed to. The actress opted to go the opposite direction with feminine pieces from head to toe by choosing a white lace blouse and a pair of blue suede pumps. She then tied a printed scarf around her waist for a unique alternative to a belt and added round retro-style tortoiseshell sunglasses. So the next time you reach for your boyfriend jeans, channel Sienna. In fact, start now by shopping our picks of similar pieces below.
There was no tribute more fitting for the 50th anniversary viewing of Cleopatra — and to the film's stars, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton — than Jessica Chastain wearing one of Taylor's Bulgari necklaces at the Cannes premiere. It was a gift given to Taylor by Burton on her 40th birthday, in 1972.
The sapphire-and-diamond sautoir (with a 65-carat center stone) is part of an eight-piece collection that the jewelry house bought back from Taylor's 2011 Christie's auction, and these pieces have rarely been loaned to celebrities. "I feel so lucky to be wearing them. They looked so fabulous on her and she was a movie star from her head to her toes," said Chastain. "That kind of glamorous star doesn't exist anymore but their diamonds do."

Of course, models look amazing on the runway, but it's their off-duty street styles that we really love to see. Each girl has her own aesthetic, and we love them all for different reasons. We can thank Kate Moss for proving that leopard goes with everything. We count on Miranda Kerr to sport sneakers (or just about anything) in the chicest way possible, and we look to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for her effortlessly styled layers. As always, Alessandra Ambrosio puts a sexier spin on casual cool, and Gisele Bündchen makes even jeans and t-shirts look high-fashion. There's more inside — like Cara Delevingne's punky Brit-girl style and Karlie Kloss's take on the classics — so keep clicking to see all our favorite models and their top street-style moments this year.
When it comes to the glamour at the Cannes Film Festival, even the supporting details are on a grander scale. For every ensemble that hits the red carpet, we'd be remiss not to take a closer look at the sparkling jewelry, sleek clutches, and sky-high heels that accompany every gorgeous gown — without these decadent little details, no celebrity arrival would be complete. Just click through to get up close and personal with Chopard, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, and the rest of the luxe lineup of bags, baubles, and heels to hit Cannes.

Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop's Summer season in London, and her close pal Kate Hudson came out in support. For the occasion, Gwyneth embraced prints in a sheer-sleeved Prabal Gurung minidress, then added much-needed edge via a black leather cutout belt and matching cutout sandals. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Kate stuck to solids in a white metallic A.L.C. jumpsuit. She kept the monochromatic theme going with a white tee and white platform pumps, then added a pop of color with a bold pink lip. No two ways about it: both actresses delivered in the style department, but who's ensemble is your favorite?
On her way to the Glamour "These Girls" event last night, Emma Robert wore a look that positively popped on the streets of NYC. We can't get enough of this pink-and-white Camilla and Marc dress ($499) — between the clean top and flirty bottom. (And we're not even going to mention how she color-coordinated with her iPhone!) If you don't have the budget to snatch Emma's exact dress, you can just as easily re-create the look at home with a shirt-and-skirt combo. Fear pink is far too cutesy for your style? Just refer to Emma on how to temper the look. Start by tucking a dressy white tank into a pink skirt — you can choose a shade, cut, and length that flatters your figure — then add black statement heels and drop earrings, like Emma's Jennifer Meyer pair, to give it a fancier feel.

When it comes to the unofficial airport dress code, there are some things that just don't fly. On our don't-pack list: sweatpants, gym shorts, pajamas, and anything belonging to the Snuggie or Slanket family.

With endless premieres and press circuits, these 14 celeb stylers are also seasoned travelers — and we're taking our airport dressing cues straight from them.
