Cannes Black-and-White Red Carpet Dresses

Channeling Cannes: Black-and-White Glamour

When taking stock of the biggest red carpet moments at the Cannes Film Festival, the standouts are pretty black and white — quite literally. The style set ditched their rainbow hues in favor of chic two-toned gowns. Just look to Emma Watson in Chanel, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, and Carey Mulligan in Vionnet for the proof — and evidence of just how chic the black-and-white palette looks on a variety of evening gowns.

Sure, the color scheme is particularly hot this season, but it's also a classic. So whether you're looking to be at the forefront of fashion or seeking something a little more timeless for your wardrobe, a great black-and-white gown is kind of like the win-win of both style camps. It's an elegant, seasonless look that's bound to get you noticed at your best friend's formal wedding this Summer or your cousin's black-tie nuptials this Fall — or years from now. Need another reason to invest? We've pulled 12. Shop our editors' picks to channel a little Cannes glamour for your next big event.
