The Cannes Film Festival is known to be one of the most glamorous events of the year. Stars have been bringing their A-game since the ’50s, women were even turned away from screenings for not wearing heels in 2015. But this year, celebs are tweaking the dress code — drastically. Julia Roberts walked the red carpet barefoot, Kristen Stewart and Susan Sarandon opted for flats and now, a sweatshirt and shorts (we repeat, sweatshirt and shorts!) have hit the carpet courtesy of young style muse Lily-Rose Depp.

The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis was promoting her new film, The Dancer, at a photo call appearance wearing a slouchy cotton Chanel hoodie with zig-zag pattern and matching short-shorts.

She kept her beauty look casual as well, with lose, wavy strands and minimal makeup. And even though the outfit is high-fashion (from Chanel’s Spring Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection) and she did team the look with a Chanel high heels featuring a feminine floral appliqué detail, it still begs the question: Is a sweatshirt Cannes appropriate?

While no one else wore something as casual as sweats (yet!) Stewart and Naomi Watts pushed the dress code boundaries with two of their outfits earlier in the week.

At a screening of Café Society, Stewart wore a ladylike silhouette with a blouse tucked into a high-waisted midi skirt and ankle strap pumps. But the details of her shirt were anything but ladylike. The top was completely see-through with only strategically placed pockets covering her décolletage (re: a “wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen”).

Watts wore a mismatched white ensemble consisting of a cream embellished skirt with a shimmery bright white tuxedo-style jacket to the Vanity Fair and Chanel party that felt more like a last-minute cover-up find than a woutfit standout.

What do you think of sweats on the red carpet? Is it appropriate for Cannes? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
