Cannes 2019 - celebrity dresses at the opening gala

Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning, Charlotte Gainsbourg ... On Tuesday evening the 72nd Cannes Film Festival officially began. The screen duel for the Golden Palm will last until May 25.

On the stairs of & nbsp; Grand Théâtre Lumière for the 72th time a red carpet was laid out, followed by hundreds of invited stars. That day, the most attention of photojournalists was focused on the opening of the festival film Jim Jarmusch & nbsp; "The Dead Don't Die" (the image is one of the favorites of the main competition). & Nbsp;

Among the guests of the opening ceremony were & nbsp; Chloë Sevigny, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Selena Gomez (included in the kit from Louis Vuitton). The hosts of the evening were taken by Javier Bardem and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

This year, Cannes will not see any Polish feature film, but Paweł Pawlikowski, winner of last year's statuette for the Cold War, sat on the jury this time. 21 images take part in the main competition, including "Pain and Glow" by Pedro Almodovar, & nbsp; "Matthias And Maxime" & nbsp; Xavier Dolan and already controversial & nbsp; "Unce upone a time in Hollywood" by Quentin Tarantino, who, contrary to the title will. The new film by the American director tells of a loud murder at Roman Polanski's villa & # 39; (played by Rafał Zawierucha), where the pregnant Sharon Tate died from stabs inflicted by Charles Manson's gang. Knowing the Tarantino's proprietary convention, you can suspect that the director's new film may shake Cannes, and the emotions are stirring up rumors that the picture is not even finished.

For now, the first screenings are starting in Cannes, and the evenings will belong to elegant dinners and parties. It's a lot of opportunities to follow festival creations. In the gallery you will see, among others, Elle Fanning dressed in Gucci (sitting this year in the feminized jurors), excellent Tilda Swinton in the creation of Haider Ackermann and Julianne Moore in Dior's emerald dress.
