There might not be a lot of color on the clothes at Cannes, but the lipstick is a different story. Below, four colors that we think were real standouts on the red carpet at the film festival.
Zoë Saldana‘s rich, deep red was the perfect compliment to her steely topaz Valentino gown. The dewy finish kept the look youthful, which was key to making her whole look feel fresh.
Jessica Biel ordinarily loves a nude lip, but she broke out of her comfort zone to choose a deep rose that complemented the swath of pink in her Dior dress. Light eye makeup and a retro do really highlighted how much the girlie pink hue played up Biel’s famously full lips.
Kirsten Dunst also opted for a red lip for her big Cannes red carpet walk, though she opted for a much more ’50s-appropriate, Betty Draper-inspired look. Lined to perfection and elegantly matte, the bold color made her blue eyes pop.
And Marion Cotillard attended a daytime photocall with a soft, blush pink lip color that we’re dying to get our hands on. It looks fresh with her feminine bob — and an extra coat of gloss made the look nighttime-appropriate a little later.
