There are many fashion events spaced throughout the year with each being touted as “the Super Bowl” of fashion or fashion’s biggest night.
The Cannes Film Festival, held on the French Riviera, can be declared “Fashion’s Biggest Red Carpet Fortnight*.”

Favorite looks from the many days of red carpet looks:
Books to explore the festival and the location.

*Ok, so a fortnight is two weeks and the festival this year is 12 days. What else do we call it?
