Most memorable Cannes dresses infographic


The fashion spectacular that is Cannes Film Festival begins today and in anticipation of the fabulous frocks set to debut on the red carpet this week, MediaRunDigital has put together an infographic of the most iconic outfits in the event's history.

From Brigitte Bardot's stunning white evening gown in 1953 to Nicole Kidman's pale pink sink Christian Dior Haute Couture dress last year, the infographic shows the most stand-out outfits from every year in between.

And yes, that includes the pink satin conical bustier that Madonna wore to stun the Cannes crowds in 1991.

Nicole Kidman may well earn herself a place on the infographic again this year as her star turn as Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco will open the festival tonight and all eyes will be on the 46-year-old's outfit choice for the premiere.

The digital agency previously created an infographic showing every dress worn to the Oscars by the recipient of the Best Actress award since 1929.

Elizabeth Taylor in 1957

Madonna in 1991

Aishwarya Rai in 2003

Diane Kruger in 2004
