The Cannes Film Festival just wrapped up its two-week run this past weekend. The high-brow, high-octane 2023 edition brought us the hotly anticipated premieres for The Weeknd’s slinky new HBO show The Idol, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City, and the new Indiana Jones. Plus, there was also way too much clapping and plenty of upscale menswear.
Cannes is notorious for its strict black-tie dress code on the red carpet—which means dinner jackets and neckwear for guys—but we’ve seen stars increasingly bend those rules over the last couple years, which feels on par with celebrity menswear’s general shift towards an “anything goes” mentality.
Scroll on for a gaggle of surprisingly swaggy moments from the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, on and off the carpet.
