Cannes is officially upon us! Before hitting the red carpet on the French Riviera, see how A-listers are prepping for the French film festival — from fresh haircuts to exquisitely packed suitcases — in the behind-the-scenes photos, below!

Bella Hadid is getting her glow on by sitting poolside at the Hôtel du Cap Eden-Roc, in what is (understandably) a favorite poolside perch for models and moguls. And lest you wonder what she might be wearing during her stay on the French Riviera, this Instagram might give you a clue.

Kirsten Dunst is prepping for her juror role at the film festival with Breton stripes and an updated do. The actress showed off her freshly trimmed bob and newly cut side bans on her stylists’ Instagram Monday evening. She teamed the short style with a striped cardigan, bright coral lip and an adorable straw hat. She’s really getting into the French esprit with this look, and we’re loving it.

L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador Blake Lively is joining her French beauty family for a fashion- and film-filled week. But before hitting the red carpet, she’s giving fans a sneak peek of her first look: a long-sleeve, floral-print Preen By Thornton Bregazzi design.

“Putting my strap on. #Cannes2016 #CafeSociety @lorealmakeup Sneak shot by @rodortega4hair,” she captioned the shot.

She also shared a detail of her Louboutin sandals and Juan Carlos Obando jumpsuit from her second look of the day.

Of course, those are just two of the many looks we have to anticipate: She posted an Instagram with a glimpse at the many sequined and sumptuous styles she’s considering for her red carpet walks.

What do you pack for a week spent on the French Riviera? Vacation essentials, including chic sunnies, studded sandals and a classic fedora to shield from the sun while you’re sun-bathing on the shore. (Naomi Watts, another L’Oréal Paris ambassador and festival fixture, would know!)

Eva Longoria has arrived in the French city! But small problem: None of her gowns have arrived with her.

“Ok bad news is two pieces of luggage are lost…good news is WE ARE IN CANNES! #Lorealista #BecauseWeCannes,” she said on Insta.

And while we’re sure her press appearances will be full-on glamour, this sneak peak she gave of everything that goes on behind the scenes proves there’s a whole lot of hard work that goes into being that beautiful.

And Doutzen Kroes, yet another L’Oréal Paris girl, certainly know all about that:

Even Hollywood’s busiest hair, nail and makeup pros are jet-setting to Cannes! Red carpet fixture Tom Bachik (who will probably work on all these leading ladies’ nails at some point) is all packed and ready to go with his tuxedo and matching nail look!

And Victoria Beckham is also mysteriously headed towards France’s film capital, sharing a shot of herself pre and post flight. Could she just be confirming she’s the greatest bestie in the world, flying to france to support Eva Longoria, or is something bigger in the works? We’ll just have to wait and see.
