38 Photos From The Cannes Opening Ceremony Red Carpet

FromThe Great Gatsby's cast to a gaggle of top models and, um, David Hasselhoff. Quite the eclectic guest list, then.

1. Wearing spring 2013 Christian Dior Haute Couture, Nicole Kidman ruled the carpet.


At this year's festival, Kidman is a member of the feature film jury.

13. For some reason there are no good photos of Tobey Maguire on the red carpet, so here's one of him from the screening that followed.

Cannes photographers are a crazy bunch — no good photos of Mr. Maguire, for some reason, but more photos of David Hasselhoff than even the hardiest Hoff fan could require. (Don't worry, those photos are coming up.)

14. Wearing Roberto Cavalli, Cindy Crawford led the requisite gaggle of models on the red carpet.

Sadly, we were denied a carpet cameo from Roberto himself.

15. Lana Del Rey wore a gown by Austrian designer Lena Hoschek.

It looks a little bit like the fabric you find on silky cushions strewn around the lobby of a boutique hotel.

18. And a from-the-rear view of her Stephane Rolland gown proves just how thoroughly she'd prevailed in her pre-carpet fight with some marauding tumbleweeds.

19. Julianne Moore also wore a Christian Dior Haute Couture gown.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Julianne, but it was probably the weakest Dior piece on display.

21. My favorite couple from the carpet: silver fox Jean-Claude Jitrois in a leather tuxedo jacket and French actress Frederique Bel covering her modesty with ornate embroidery and some grass skirt-style fringe.

Also, Jean-Claude's boots have heels. Of course they do.

23. Georgia May Jagger showed how it's possible to stand out on the red carpet even while wearing a dress that, color-wise, blends in.

A Roberto Cavalli gown will almost always prove outstanding.

33. This guy's suit cannot be ignored. It should be, but it cannot.

To be fair, he'll be the comfiest guy in the cinema, though — he's basically wearing a semi-formal pair of pajamas.
