The glitz and glamour

The prestigious Cannes Film Festival has returned yesterday for its 72nd edition. For the opening, the biggest stars from all around the world descended onto Promenade de la Croisette to celebrate the event. Over the years, the French Riviera’s independent film festival has become one of the most-anticipated and fashion-forward red-carpet events of the year.
