In its 77th version, nevertheless, Cannes has seen extra informal fashion creep onto the Croisette—primarily within the type of blue denims. Not that these are common denims, although. The celeb stamp on denim, that pillar of off-duty fashion, is decidedly extra elevated; as an alternative, name them fancy denims.

Sienna Miller, for one, donned a pair of saggy, pocketed denims from Schiaparelli at her photograph name for Horizon: An American Saga, dressing up the pants with a tweed-style blazer with gold gildings (and even a pair of keyhole briefs peaking out excessive). The tip consequence? Extremely stylish. French singer Yseult additionally pulled off wide-leg denims, sporting them with a denim jacket for the complete Canadian Tuxedo remedy. (Mannequin Abbey Lee Kershaw did this, too, although her model was a sharp-shouldered Gucci swimsuit.)

Denim attire and skirts had their second on the pink carpet, as properly. On the photograph name for Moi Aussi, French star Tess Barthelemy selected a pocketed denim day costume, whereas mannequin Cindy Bruna rocked a swirly-printed denim skirt from Pucci—styled with a crop prime, after all. So, what offers? Why all of the denims illustration at Cannes, a spot that has lengthy represented the peak of glitz and glamour?

All of it is smart in context. As of late, denim is available in nearly each remedy doable—from 2000s-style jean boots (very Britney Spears), to denim night robes (see: Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren on the CFDAs). In consequence, the once-casual textile is evolving right into a staple that, sure, may even work for night apparel. Its presence at Cannes could also be stunning, nevertheless it feels refreshing, too.

There’s additionally the consolation issue: Who wants a good silk taffeta ball robe when you possibly can rock a pair of bootcut denims? Fewer frills—with out fully sacrificing formality—feels extra reflective of the style temper right now. In an period the place easy fashion is all the trend (the current recognition of The Row’s Margaux bag or Alaïa flats factors to this), a decidedly dressed-down look couldn’t really feel extra present and sensible. In different phrases: We hope Cannes denim is right here for good.

Beneath, extra of the most effective denim seems to be from the 2024 Cannes Movie Competition.
