"It looks very simple, but in reality, it's not easy at all to get special access to the festival," says Diana Kopaigora. And "special access" means a pass for the Red Carpet. However, the young photographer managed to do it anyway.
Being as close as possible to the stars to take the best portraits was especially important to her. And then, of course, it's the moments away from the lens that makes the festival: "One of my favorite actors, Matt Damon, signed one of the pictures I took of him on the Red Carpet. When I was 14 and started photography, his first movie 'Good Will Hunting' really motivated me."
Of course, a very special highlight was Bella Hadid in Schiaparelli. If the gown with the "Golden Lung" as the centerpiece was still on display at the Couture Fashion Week in Paris a few days before, she was allowed to show it at the Red Carpet.
The winning film "Titane" by Julia Ducournau, which took home the Palme d'Or, was a horror film that also marks the debut of the young director. In it, the soul of a serial killer merges with a car. Posthumanist tendencies par excellence, which delighted the audience and the jury.
The crew of the French film "Bac Nord" with Adèle Exarchopoulos ("Blue is the warmest color") was also on hand and kept the crowd in a good mood on the red carpet, as you can see in the photos.
