Enormous bouffant dresses decked out in lace or feathers ruled the red carpet at this year's Cannes film festival, one of the of the world's most glamourous stages for actors as well as fashion designers.

As well asoversized gowns, more classic monochrome looks also scored design points forsome fashion critics amid the spangles, patterns and fringes that werecertainly not lacking at parties and premieres on the French Riviera.

"I felt likeon the carpet this year it was either go big or a little bit more iconic,understated looks and I loved that," New York-based stylist ElizabethSulcer said.

The festival is due to draw to a close with an awards ceremony on May 25, one of the swankiest nights of the calendar.

In the classiccorner, U.S. actress Selena Gomez walked the red carpet for her zombie movie"The Dead Don't Die" wearing a white silk bra top and skirt with ahigh slit by Louis Vuitton.

"I thinksometimes less is more and I really loved it in the white — it was bright andvery beautiful," Sulcer said of the outfit.

Others followed suit. Model Bella Hadid also kept it simple in a red cutout Roberto Cavalli gown at the premiere of "Pain and Glory" by Cannes veteran Pedro Almodovar.

But down the coastat Thursday's exclusive amfAR charity gala many stars chose to pump up thevolume including singer Dua Lipa, in a bombastic, red feathery Valentinonumber.

For Sulcer,sparkling pantsuits were one trend that hit more of an off note.

Margot Robbie, whostars in Quentin Tarantino's new film "Once Upon a Time inHollywood", wore black sequinned Chanel trousers paired with anoff-the-shoulder white top to the premiere.
