It's almost here!

The 2016 Cannes Film Festival kicks off on May 11, which means we'll be seeing our favourite stars walking the famous red carpet wearing the most stunning ensembles we could ever imagine.

The annual event is one of the most prestigious festivals in the world, and if we've learned anything from the years past, the fashion is just as important as the films. And while some looks are notably more daring than others, there's no denying that all of them are definitely memorable.

So in honour of the big event, we're taking a look back at some of the most iconic Cannes dresses of all-time. From Brigitte Bardot to Blake Lively and, of course, Aishwarya Rai, we guarantee these ensembles will take your breath away.
