Some of the most notable highlights include the legendary Meryl Streep taking home the honorary Palme d'Or award, Barbie director Greta Gerwig being picked as this year's Jury President and the film premiere of Megalopolis by The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola.

Here, we've curated the most exquisite looks spotted at the Cannes Film Festival carpet so far.

Anya Taylor-Joy

Inspired by Monsieur Dior's "Mexico" dress from Dior's own archives, House ambassador and actress Anya Taylor-Joy stuns in an embroided cotton tulle couture gown paired with a minimalistic bow waist belt.

Greta Gerwig

Channeling a feminine whimsicality synonymous with her Oscar-winning film Barbie, Greta Gerwig graced the red carpet in a Maison Margiela artisanal creation. Dressed in a blue-and-white striped cotton poplin sundress, the '60s-inspired look was made even more playful with the split-toe leather pumps.

Meryl Streep

She might have not shown up as Miranda Priestly herself, but Meryl Streep proves once again why she's a sartorial trailblazer. Simple yet tastefully exquisite, the acclaimed actress wore a custom Dior draped white silk dress to receive the prestigious Palme d’Or award.

Léa Seydoux

One of the leading stars of the opening film The Second Act, French actress and Louis Vuitton House ambassador Léa Seydoux showed up in a custom silver sequined bustier gown designed by the Maison.

Heidi Klum

Model Heidi Klum showed up in a head-turning Saiid Kobeisy couture gown. The fiery red off-the shoulder gown featured voluminous silky layers and a dramatic train—talk about making an entrance.

Taylor Hill

Channeling old Hollywood is none other than actress and model Taylor Hill. Dressed in a custom décolleté gown by Balmain, the tuxedo-inspired torso and high slit with diamante accents at the hip conveyed a spellbinding fusion of masculine and feminine influences.

Helena Christensen

Hailed as one of the original supermodels, the charismatic Helena Christensen graced the carpet in an ethereal bridal gown from Vivienne Westwood, complete with resplendent High Jewellery accessories from Pomellato.
