People come to Cannes for one reason, and one reason only: to see celebrities. And they’ll go to extremes to do so, whether it’s hanging out on their hotel balcony to get a better view or simply holding up a sign asking for a ticket.
Entertaining thousands of adoring fans day in and day out can get exhausting. Just ask Emma Stone … or these stilt walkers, who stop for a quick break in the sunshine.
IN THE HEADLINES
Even the newspapers in Cannes are starstruck! After his film The Lobster premiered to raves, Colin Farrell was the man of the hour – and the most inescapable face of the festival.
ON THE LOOKOUT
We might never know what it’s like to spend a day in the life of our favorite stars, but at least we can enjoy the same view that they wake up to every morning in the South of France.
Forget the movie stars! This is the real reason we’re all staring longingly at Cannes photos. How many more days until vacation?
HEY, ISN'T THAT …?
IN THE MIX
After the screenings, Miller and her fellow jury judge Jake Gyllenhaal share a few laughs with the superproducer himself, Harvey Weinstein. We expect they’ll be smiling again come Oscar season!
MAKING A SCENE
If you’re in Cannes, the Grand Hyatt Hôtel Martinez is the place to be, whether you’re looking to party by the pool or go star spotting at the gifting suites. Plus, there’s an eagle on the security staff – take that, America!
BUT FIRST, I GOTTA …
THE WHEEL DEAL
TIME TO SHINE
The only thing that sparkles more than all those diamonds on the red carpet is the Côte D’Azur itself. Don’t worry, we’re incredibly jealous of this view too.
DON'T. FREAK. OUT.
We can only assume this girl spotted one of the many A-listers in attendance at the festival. After all, that’s how we’d look if we came face to face with Jake.
THEY'VE GOT DRIVE
Film buffs and excited fans alike flood into the city at the start of the festival, hoping to capture a bit of the glamour for themselves. The most popular destination? The Promenade de Croisette, where all the big premieres are held. Good luck finding a parking spot!
THE COOL CLICK
The main event at Cannes is, of course, celeb watching. If you’re looking to see your favorite stars in the flesh, just follow the swarms of paparazzi – and if that doesn’t help, the screaming fans definitely will!
WINE AND DINE
Those long red carpet walks and glamorous stair climbs require a lot of energy. Time to fuel up on the gourmet delicacies available at the festival’s many parties. They are, obviously, best enjoyed by the pool.
