  • The 2023 Cannes Film Festival is currently taking place in France.

  • So far, celebrities have been wearing daring fashion everywhere — from hotels to the red carpet.

  • Stars like Helen Mirren and Fan Bingbing were some of the first to show their bold styles.

Coco Jones was one of the first stars to arrive at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in a daring outfit.

She was photographed outside Hôtel Martinez wearing a purple halter gown with a bandeau top and waist cutouts.

The dress sparkled in the light and matched the singer's rosy makeup.

Cindy Bruna was next, though she took a different approach with her fashion.

The French model wore a tweed romper with cape-style sleeves and a plunging neckline that reached her stomach.

The look was both bold and chic, especially when paired with white strappy sandals, a neon-yellow purse, and black sunglasses.

Russian actor Victoria Bonya walked the first red carpet of Cannes in a feather-covered gown.

Her green, floor-length dress was covered in long feathers across its bodice, and a sheer, crystal-covered lining sat underneath.

When the actor lifted her arms to show its off-the-shoulder sleeves, Bonya looked like a bird in flight.

 

Fan Bingbing brought the drama while also honoring her Chinese culture.

Her strapless ball gown was custom-made for her by Christopher Bu.

The dress had a dramatic full skirt that fanned into a train, and its bold print featured leaves and tigers, a symbol of bravery and strength in China.

French actor Pom Klementieff made the case for patent leather on the same red carpet.

Her vibrant, purple gown had long sleeves with sharp shoulder pads, a V-shaped neckline that connected to its sheer corset, and a floor-length skirt with a thigh-high slit.

To make the Versace outfit even more daring, Klementieff added matching patent-leather gloves and a thick diamond necklace.

Farhana Bodi's lime-green gown featured a few daring trends.

The most obvious trend was neon feathers, which lined the gown's strapless neckline, skirt, and train.

But underneath the fluff was another bold detail: a sheer corset.

Helen Mirren used accessories to her advantage at the movie screening.

Her periwinkle dress was pretty simple, with long sleeves, a V-shaped neckline, and a wrapped column skirt.

The rest of her outfit, however, was anything but. She carried a black fan printed with L'Oreal's slogan "#WorthIt" — she's the face of the makeup brand — and wore her hair in a dyed-blue updo.

Thai actor Araya A. Hargate wore one of the most dramatic ball gowns on the red carpet.

Her blush-colored gown was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier with a strapless corset as its bodice and an intentionally-crumbled skirt.

Carys Zeta Douglas, the daughter of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, wore a dress that was both delicate and daring.

Her sleeveless, sheer gown was crafted from white lace, and two triangle cutouts were placed across its waistline. The dress was also backless.

The long-sleeved garment looked a bit like a button-up worn open, with each side of the blouse tucked into a ruched, cummerbund-style piece.

The shirt and his black pants were designed by Saint Laurent.

Viola Davis was covered in feathers when she walked the "Monster" red carpet.

Her white Valentino gown was simple, with a single sparkling strap and a floor-length column skirt.

Her feather-covered jacket, on the other hand, could not be missed. Davis wore it draped below her shoulders.

Model Rahi Chadda turned heads at the same event in a red ensemble.

Parisian fashion brand Homolog designed his look.

Emili Sindlev, on the other hand, opted for a see-through gown that showed her skin and thong.

Paco Rabanne designed the sleeveless, chain-mail dress worn by the stylist. It had a V-shaped neckline, a midi skirt, and a back cutout with a whale-tail detail.

The next day, Spanish actor Ester Expósito hit the "Black Files" red carpet in Atelier Versace.

Her daring dress was covered in skin-baring slits and sparkling chain mail, creating a look that was edgy and glamorous all in one.

She also added Messika diamonds in the form of earrings, a necklace, and rings.

On the "Killers of the Flower Moon" red carpet, Naomi Campbell mixed glamour with edgy fashion.

Valentino designed her red dress, which had a geometric top that revealed part of her chest and a see-through skirt that reached the floor.

Atop the gown, Campbell also wore a pink, feather-embellished cape that flowed behind her as she walked.

A few days later, Irina Shayk wore a low-rise skirt and leather bra to the "Firebrand" red carpet.
