Cannes Film Festival: Best Dressed Of All Time

If you could think of nothing better than gazing at dreamy designer gowns all day long, you're in luck. Cannes Film Festival 2014 starts on May 14 and as with every year, it promises to bring incredible gowns, star-studded premieres and some of the most sought-after parties of the year.

Before the two-week festival (yes, that's two weeks of serious South of France glamour) begins, let's just take a moment to look back at a few of the best style moments from previous years.

Remember Angelina Jolie in that strapless Versace design at The Tree of Life premiere in 2011? Or Carey Mulligan's blush pink Dior gown from The Great Gatsby opening night in 2013? These are the kind of dresses that blow awards season fashion out the water.

So, who can we expect to see making a statement on the red carpet this year? Look out for Rosario Dawson at the premiere of Captives, Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart at the Clouds of Sils Maria presentation, plus Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld and Meryl Streep at the screening of Tommy Lee Jones' latest film, The Homesman.

Cannes regulars like Nicole Kidman and Jessica Chastain are also set to make appearances, while Lana Del Rey, Sharon Stone and er, Robin Thicke are on the guestlist for one of the biggest parties of the festival, the amfAR gala on 22 May.

Sounds like Hollywood's A-list will be having a blast, doesn't it?
