The Cannes Film Festival rages on in France, and although many of our favorite style stars are using the ample red carpets as opportunities to take some fashion risks, a neutral palette of black, white and grey is still extremely popular. Thankfully, Emily Blunt, who's in Cannes to promote her movie "Sicario," decided to have a little fun at the film's photocall on Tuesday, choosing a playful Peter Pilotto dress from the label's fall 2015 collection. When we saw this look, we couldn't help but smile. With colorful squares, snaking squiggly lines and metallic embellishments that recall a futuristic board game, the actress' daytime look is both elegant and eccentric — the ideal combination for a fancy (and at times, stuffy) film festival. 

Blunt finished the fun look with simple, beachy waves, a bright red lip and some chunky Jimmy Choo heeled sandals in a complementary shade of yellow. Interestingly enough, Blunt was one of the first celebrities to publicly criticize the festival's apparent rule that requires women to wear heels on the red carpet. For what it's worth, we think this dress would be a winner no matter what footwear she paired it with.
