The Cannes film festival is our yearly mix of Hollywood glamour mixed with the stately prestige of the French Riviera, so the stars from far and wide make for a good show on the red carpet. Infamously, this year's Cannes fashion came with a little #controversy, as women not wearing heels were reportedly turned away from screenings.

This year's big winners were capped with director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust & Bone) taking home the Palme d'Or with his immigrant drama Dheepan. Other notable winners include Rooney Mara taking Best Actress for Todd Haynes' drama Carol (in which she stars with Cate Blanchett), Hou Hsiao-hsien taking Best Director for his martial arts epic The Assassin, and the Jury Prize going to the drama The Lobster (starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz). Check out the rest of the prize winners over at Keyframe.
