Please Enjoy These Perfect Celebrity Cannes Outfits From the '90s

The Cannes Film Festival, also known as the most glamorous film festival in the world, is beginning next week, and although we're certainly excited to see what looks the celeb attendees have in store for 2022, we're equally interested in the outfits they wore in the '90s

Although the trends have changed over the years (well, decades), what hasn't changed is the overall vibes of Cannes. There's something about the French seaside atmosphere that gives a certain je ne sais quoi to a red carpet look. And given that basically every '90s trend is cool again, it was especially enjoyable to look back at what celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, and Nicole Kidman wore. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised to see some similar outfits at Cannes today.

In honor of the impending Cannes Film Festival, read on to see some of our favorite throwback looks from the '90s and shop present-day pieces inspired by them.
