Every May Hollywood's A-List heads to the south of France for a couple weeks of movies and lavish parties. We'd much rather be there in person, but instead will admire the fashion finery from afar.

Cannes Day 7: Kristen Stewart
K-Stew is fulfilling her duties as a Balenciaga spokesperson beautifully in the south of France. We just wonder how long it took before she changed into her signature sneakers.

The On the Road co-stars show off their personal style at a photo call for the film. Kristen does her fashion-y tomboy thing in Balenciaga pants, a white tank and Rebecca Minkoff blazer while Kirsten does girly meets music festival, pairing a Dolce & Gabbana white frock with a Charlotte Olympia headband.

We love that Nic is basically back to being a redhead full-time again. And proving that wearing red is not off-limits in a sleek Antonio Berardi sheath dress.

Cannes Day 7: Kim Kardashian
We know Kim is there supporting new beau Kanye West's short film, but she still feels a wee bit out of place. Her body looks great in the dress, but we might have picked something other than a black boot.

We're not clear as to what Diddy is doing in the Riviera. But we do appreciate his dapper look, especially the less expected white jacket.

Cannes Day 5: Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson
Officially the cutest couple in the south of France, Diane and her doting beau looked spectacular at the 65th Anniversary Party. Her metallic Vivienne Westwood is divine. Also when it started to rain on the red carpet, Pacey held an umbrella for her…again.
