WMido - Milano Eyewear Show - February 3-5 - 2024

The “Palme d’Or” of eyewear

May 29 2023

Saturday 27 May brought the 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival to a close, with the coveted top award going to "Anatomy of a Fall" directed by Justine Triest.

For ten days, it was a non-stop succession of glamorous screenings, parties and events. The stars took to the Croisette red carpet in all their glory, with extravagant, dreamy, shiny and naked looks to show off their figures.

For actors, directors and models, eyewear played a leading role in this show, establishing its place as an indisputable fashion accessory. Let’s take a look at the celebrities’ selected eyewear in this article.
