While this year has already seen some pretty epic red-carpet events, there is something so glamorous and sophisticated about the Cannes Film Festival that almost puts the annual event in a league of its own. It's an opportunity for stars to become their chicest selves, from their daytime looks for cast photo calls against the French Riviera backdrop, to the over-the-top red carpet gowns that are photographed from all angles on that massive red carpet. And with fashion fans like Elle Fanning, Chloë Sevigny and Tilda Swinton having already shown up on the first day, it looks like we're in for a good one.

For the next 11 days, we'll be keeping close track of what everyone wears and documenting it all right here. So browse the gallery below for the best of Cannes Film Festival 2019 fashion and be sure to check back.
