The Cannes Film Festival may have wrapped up, but the remarkable style will live on forever. This year, the red carpets were walked by superstars like Penelope Cruz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Karolina Kurkova, and Gwen Stefani — and even brought out celebs Jane Fonda, Goldie Hawn, and Angelina Jolie. We enjoyed seeing all of the over-the-top, glamorous looks, but when forced to choose our faves, it came down to a very fierce 20 ensembles.

At the Cannes premiere of This Must Be the Place, legendary catwalker Claudia Schiffer and runway stunner Anja Rubik went head to head on the red carpet, both clad in sexy black gowns — and both with little left to the imagination. Claudia sported a lace bustier Dolce & Gabbana gown, accessorizing with layered diamond necklaces and a pair of black pumps. Anja's dress may have been full length and long sleeved, but it wasn't exactly modest. The Emilio Pucci gown was covered in sequins, and featured an ornate pattern made up of tiny holes. Both models looked gorgeous — but who did black peekaboo best?

Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst were on hand for the Cannes Film Festival's closing ceremony last night. The cinema event's winners were announced once the stars gathered inside, and Kirsten took home the prize for best actress in Melancholia. Her big-screen skills luckily took center stage after the film's director Lars von Trier made controversial remarks about Nazism, which got him subsequently banned from Cannes, during a press conference. Ryan made an appearance to support Nicolas Winding Refn as he won best director for Drive, even demonstrating his love for Nicolas with a smack on the lips. The festival's biggest honor, the Golden Palm, went to Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life after the film's screening met mixed reviews. Brad Pitt, who stars in the drama, wasn't able to attend the show since he already made the trip back to LA to join Angelina Jolie and their kids at her Kung Fu Panda 2 premiere.
Ryan Gosling brought the hotness in a blue tuxedo at the premiere of Drive in Cannes today. He flashed his sexy grin and got playful with director Nicolas Winding Refn as they made their way up the grand staircase into the screening. Ryan and Nicolas were up early in the French city for a photocall this morning, and despite Ryan's unique outfit choice, he was still looking sexy for the cameras. The actor also popped up at the Cinema For Peace dinner with Leonardo DiCaprio after arriving in the South of France on Wednesday. His timing was perfect since ex Rachel McAdams wrapped up her film festival duties and headed out of town just a few days earlier, eliminating any chance of a possible run-in. Ryan clearly wasn't concerned since he let loose at Paul Allen's Brazilian-themed yacht party with the likes of Bar Refaeli, who is newly single following her split from Leo.
The Cannes Film Festival wraps up this weekend after welcoming Hollywood's biggest names to its red carpets. There were plenty of famous faces during the French festivities, but it was the cute couples who really stole the show. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie showed their lasting love at Brad's The Tree of Life premiere, while Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams stepped out publicly for the first time as a duo. Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger were the picture of glamour, and Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale filled their overseas trip with sweet moments. Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt made the rounds side by side, and Dev Patel and Freida Pinto were an adorable match. So, tell us — which one of these twosomes do you think was the cutest at Cannes?
Ryan Gosling picked what could double as a pajama top for this morning's Drive photo call at Cannes. His film is helping to close out the festival and debuted to largely positive reviews already. He's without his leading ladies in the movie, Carey Mulligan and Christina Hendricks, who are both back in the states. Always the fashion plate, Ryan paired his navy top with white pants and snappy wingtip shoes. The actor kicked off his time in Cannes alongside Leonardo DiCaprio at Wednesday's Cinema For Peace dinner, and Ryan will be back on the red carpet for this evening's premiere. He looks good no matter what he's wearing, but Ryan Gosling's shirtless physique is part of what landed him in our list of the hottest Blockbuster Boys of Summer.
Patrick Dempsey waved to his French fans between appearances in Cannes, France yesterday. He dressed in a casual neutral colored suit for his morning appointments around town before changing into a formal tuxedo and joining his wife, Jillian, and an elite Hollywood crowd at the amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala held in Antibes. This trip is just one of many to come for Patrick who stars opposite Shia LaBeouf in this Summer's blockbuster sequel Transformer: Dark of the Moon. Shia's already started making the promotional rounds and dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week to retell the story of an infamous bar fight. Transformer opens nationwide July 1, but first Patrick dealt with more small screen drama on last night's Grey's Anatomy season finale, which closed out another successful season for the hit series.
In between film premieres, press junkets, and photocalls, the attendees of the Cannes Film Festival are squeezing in a little do-gooding — and looking unbelievably stylish while doing it. The annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala brings together the best and brightest from fashion and film, and gives us the chance to see the likes of Carine Roitfeld, Naomi Campbell, Goldie Hawn, and Courtney Love in the same room. A-list actresses, designers, models, and musicians walked the red carpet to promote amfAR's crusade to end the AIDS epidemic, and as usual, they proved that you can look fabulous while supporting a good cause.

Ryan Gosling popped up at his first Cannes event this evening looking dapper in Salvatore Ferragamo for the Cinema For Peace inaugural dinner honoring Sean Penn for his charitable efforts in Haiti. Leonardo DiCaprio and rumored flame Blake Lively took a break from lounging so he could stop by to say a few words while Robert De Niro, Naomi Campbell, and Uma Thurman sat in the audience. Ryan's arrival in France is later than most of the star-studded crowd as his upcoming flick Drive, costarring Carey Mulligan, is closing out the film festival. Carey debuted newly dyed brown hair this week in preparation for her next role starring opposite Leonardo in The Great Gatsby. The cast of the Baz Luhrmann remake of the classic is close to complete with Joel Edgerton now playing Tom Buchanan after Ben Affleck reportedly passed on the role last month. Carey's not the only link between Leo and Ryan, as Ryan was also momentarily romantically tied to Blake last Fall.
If there were ever a batch of women who could wear these gorgeous cut-out gowns on a red carpet, it's this group of stunning models. Elisabetta Canalis, Karolina Kurkova, Bar Refaeli (who we've already established looked unbelievable last night), Naomi Campbell, and Bianca Balti. Take a peek of them at Cannes, and leave a comment to let me know whose sexy dress you like best.
