Photo highlights, so far, from Cannes

27 frames from the most famous red carpet in the French Riviera

While it’s not unusual for celebrities to visit the French Riviera, the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has seen a particularly luminescent bunch. We’ve got our film critic Brian D. Johnson sending us dispatches from the ground and photographer George Pimentel sending us his shots from the red carpet. Here’s a selection of the best frames from the first five days of the festival:

 The stars of The Great Gatsby: Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.

Cannes 2013 jury chair Steven Spielberg and jury member Nicole Kidman.

The Cannes jury on opening night.

Actress Freida Pinto, who looks like she could pull an Angelina Jolie with that leg but has chosen not to.

Cindy Crawford in front of a sea of photographers.

Nicole Kidman strikes a pose.

Director Sofia Coppola.

Actress Emma Watson (I wonder if she got all of those earrings when she auditioned for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo…and if she regrets them.)

The cast of Sofia Coppola’s  The Bling Ring.

Penelope Cruz (I know, right? It kind of looks like the bottom part of this dress is falling down. But it isn’t.)

Kirsten Dunst, supporting boyfriend Garrett Hedlund, who stars in the Coen Brothers’  latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis.

Jessica Biel, supporting husband Justin Timberlake, who also stars in Inside Llewyn Davis.

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints stars Casey Aflleck and Rooney Mara with director David Lowery.

Ronney Mara (Can you believe her sister Kate Mara is Zoe Barnes in House of Cards? Also, can you believe that Rooney Mara has never once smiled in a photograph?)

Carey Mulligan, smiling, with Inside Llewyn Davis costar Justin Timberlake.

Carey Mulligan, laughing, over something Justin Timberlake just said.

Cannes jury member Nicole Kidman being led down the red carpet by her tiny husband Keith Urban.


Cannes jury chair Steven Spielberg with his wife, actress Kate Capshaw (remember Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom?)

Jane Fonda looking fabulous at 75.

Jennifer Lawrence (promoting the next Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire, on a wrinkled white sheet.)

Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth promoting Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Jennifer Lawrence still promoting Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and still looking fabulous.

Garrett Hedlund, Justin Timberlake and Oscar Isaac, who all star in the Coen Brothers’  Inside Llewyn Davis, and who all look super cute here.

There are the Coen brothers in the foreground with Carey Mulligan and then there’s John Goodman, who is possibly the most fabulous of them all.
