The international summit of film makers gives actresses of every stripe the chance to get daring, and the warm beach-y weather gives them a chance to get revealing. Put the two together, and it’s a recipe for some killer outfits. Over the years, celebs like Eva Longoria, Kristen Stewart, Halle Berry and Michelle Williams took the plunge with low cut gowns.

But you don’t just have to an actress to attend! Beyonce, Cassie and Janet Jackson have all done their part to add a extra dose of “Ooh la la” to the French Riviera with a high fashion wardrobe. And then of course there are bad gal divas like Madonna and Lady Gaga who didn’t feel the need to wear much more than a bra when out and about. What’s French for “Sexy as hell?” We’re not sure, but “Cannes” gets the message across. Head on up to the gallery above for the 25 sexiest outfits in the history of the film festival. Enjoy!
