Festival De Cannes 2012

"Ever since its creation, the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level."  -Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the festival.

This years festival was dedicated to a special woman Marilyn Monroe as she was named the official face of the event. 
Elegant, free spirited and old glamour are a few words that come to mind, suitable to the occasion since the celebs and artists attending the Cannes Festival definitely embodied this style in the French Riviera.
