Yes, the gowns at Cannes are way fab, but the beauty? Those red carpet looks created an entirely new level of superstardom. With pretty messy waves dominating overly-styled locks and nude lips making just as many appearances as bold reds, celebs are taking big risks with hair + makeup, and the payoff is nothing less than glamorous. See who pulled out all the stops in the beauty department over every other A-lister at Cannes (+ a well-deserved shoutout to the gorg runners up!).

Most Glamorous Side Part

Kristen Stewart, Runner Up: Freida Pinto: We鈥檙e used to K.Stew making beauty + fashion fumbles, but the face of Chanel finally gets it right here with her swoon-worthy side part and glam-girl curls. The effortlesly edgy 鈥榙o has just the right amount of 鈥榯ude without lacking a bit of elegance. And thanks to Freida Pinto, you鈥檒l never catch us out of the house again without a side part in our ponies.

Cutest Crimped Curls

Jennifer Lawrence, Runner Up: Lea Seydoux: Rather than glam out their hair with big and bouncy waves, stars like Jennifer Lawrence are showing that you can totally wow with crimpy curls. Her sideswept updo is the perfect style to show off her wavy, grown-out locks. Lea Seydoux proves that great things can happen when you let your tousled hair down, too.

Most Epic Braid

Eva Longoria, Runner Up: Blake Lively: Eva Longoria brings the fishtail braid to the red carpet, and we鈥檙e all completely floored. Plus, her perfectly messy plaits are a gorgeous compliment to that smokin鈥 asymmetrical cutout. We have to admit, Blake Lively鈥檚 Rapunzel-like pony is also quite the head turner.

Most Enviable Updo

Cate Blanchett, Runner Up: Nicole Kidman: From the front, Cate Blanchett appears to be donning the daintiest chignon in all the land. Then turn sideways and BOOM: Wavy braids from out of nowhere! We should have trusted you all along, Cate, to mash-up the most stand-by of all formal hairstyles with a kind of 鈥90s-inspired cool. Similarly, Nicole Kidman鈥檚 posh 鈥榙o mixes retro flair + a pretty messy braid and we love it.

Most #IWokeUpLikeThis Waves

Blake Lively, Runner Up: Cara Delevingne: How can her hair be so bouncy and beachy at the same time? It鈥檚 perfect, so we鈥檒l continue to be way jeal of Blake Lively鈥檚 mind-bending natural grace. Oh yeah, and Cara Delevingne looks fly. What鈥檚 new?

Most Bombshell Red Lip

Amber Heard, Runner Up: Jourdan Dunn: Amber Heard rocks enviable lip of the red carpet all year and of course, we鈥檙e obsessed every time. Not only is the hue the perfect shade for her skin tone, but its luster-free finish plays off her dusty gold eyeshadow like a dream. Props to Jourdan Dunn for doing more of the same 鈥 rocking impeccably outlined eyes and a dew-kissed face with a look-at-me lip color.

Fiercest Cat Eye

Zoe Saldana, Runner Up: Christina Hendricks: THIS is how to make a retro look timeless: Zoe Saldana mimics a wispy eye flick with dark liner along her inner eye and owns the look with barely-there eyeshadow and a beautiful matte lip. Christina Hendricks embraces the vintage look off the Mad Men set, and 鈥 shocker 鈥 she still looks stunning.

Best Barely-There Makeup

Hilary Swank + Julianne Moore: What鈥檚 the biggest makeup risk you can take on the red carpet? To look like you鈥檙e not wearing any makeup at all! Two A-listers tie for best barely-there look 鈥 a gutsy move on Hilary Swank and Julianne Moore鈥檚 parts. But it鈥檚 one that shows that there鈥檚 nothing more attractive than a confident, natural beauty.

Boldest (Non-Red) Lips

Lea Seydoux, Runner Up: America Ferrera: In our book, Lea Seydoux is rockin鈥 the best red pout alternative at Cannes. Orange lips are so in this season, but YOU don鈥檛 have to walk the red carpet to try it! If that shade is too much of a detour, then use America Ferrera鈥檚 dusty pink color as your new lip inspo. It鈥檚 pastel perfection.

Most Luscious Lashes

Lara Stone, Runner Up: Aishwarya Rai: Give it up: It鈥檚 just not true that false lashes = tacky. Lara Stone鈥檚 full and flirty falsies make her eyes pop in the most un-fussy way 鈥 it鈥檚 a fresh-faced look we鈥檇 rock everyday! Then we鈥檇 turn it up like Aishwarya Rai for special occasions. That cateye + false lash combo is a knockout.
