All the celebrities who made a strong case for minimalism at 76th Cannes Film Festival, 2023.

When you think about the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, you think of opulence, glamour and drama — something that will be etched in people’s memories forever.

Lately, many A-listers have been ditching the frills, fluff and feathers for a more classic approach. Think timeless and iconic — probably an ensemble that doesn’t weigh three times more than the celebrity.

Gigi Hadid took the archival route and yet kept it minimal in a mocha-hued Zac Posen number from 2014. Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who is known to be an out-and-out minimalist served two grand looks that were edgy yet elegant. Both her YSL and Valentino gowns were monochrome with zero surface ornamentation. Playing with the cut and just adding one stand-out element to the outfit made it look cleaner and sharper.

Similarly, Jennifer Lawrence channelled the old Hollywood glamour this season and kept both her appearances at Cannes timeless. Her stylist Kate Young dressed Jennifer in a Crimson Dior gown with a corsetted bodice and minimal detail on the neckline. But the star of her look was her choice of footwear. The Hunger Games actor walked the red carpet in a pair of strappy flip flops and looked uber comfortable while doing it.

Although heavy volume and space-consuming couture is a constant at Cannes, it’s refreshing to see celebrities opting for styles that are dainty yet strong in expressing their sartorial sense. Take a look at the gallery above and view all the best minimalist looks of the season.
