All eyes on the ears.

The 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival came to a close on Sunday night, with Sofia Coppola winning the Best Director prize for her star-studded, juicy dramaThe Beguiled – making her the second woman ever to win the award in 56 years. It's been a long time coming! While Cannes obviously has a way to go in terms of representing female filmmakers, our focus has always been mainly on the women at the festival, for their outstanding performances, their hard work and, of course, their impeccable red carpet style. 

Cannes fashion is unlike the Oscars: it can be wacky and a little daring to say the least. Some stars and models opt for refreshing alternatives to the classic gowns of other ceremonies, in the style of dazzling minidresses or smoking tuxedos. And since luxury jeweler Chopard is the main sponsor of the event, the iconic steps to the main hall this year were graced by Rihanna, appearing in her Riri x Chopard collection, as well as many other starlets who had gone big on the diamonds and gemstones. While we had to shield our eyes from all the blinding bling, we did manage to learn a thing or two about how to take ear accessories to the next level. 

The key to dressing to the nines is adding just the right amount of sparkle. Where a necklace can be more tricky due to the neckline of your outfit (say, for example, you have chosen a halter neck), ear jewels can be piled on, come what may. And what better way to highlight your summer lob? Just remember to keep it fresh and balance out big and bold details with paired-back pieces. 

Check out the latest trends that the stars of the French Riviera have been rocking on the red carpet that you can recreate to ensure that all eyes will be on your ears at your next summer night out or black-tie event:

The Cuff


The easiest way to add instant wow-factor is with an earcuff – and jury member Jessica Chastain showed us how it's done, by wearing a dazzling, intricate design by Piaget that adds an element of glamour to the drama of her dress and signature red locks. For a more modern take on it, take note of how model Barbara Palvin accessorized her dusty pink Prada gown with a Messika cuff that gave the girl-next-door dress extra edge.

More is More


If you decide to go big, why stop at just one statement earring? Pile on three or four pairs and play around with their positions your ear. Model Anja Rubik gave a perfect example of how to stack 'em up for cool party look when she turned up on the amFAR red carpet in a Saint Laurent minidress and multiple Repossi earrings worn on one ear. As for a classy, sexy version – complete with updo – French actress Juliette Binoche wore not one, not two, but three white diamonds on the same side as the shoulder of her asymmetric, sequin gown.

The Big Drop


Once you opt for drop earrings, you better drop it like it's hot. No more tiny diamond danglers: it's either go long or go longerLaetitia Casta made an eye-catching appearance on the red carpet in a pair of pearl and diamond earrings by Boucheron, and an elegant, structured velvet gown. Hailey Baldwin also brought her A-game at Cannes, amping up her simple silk gown with Art Deco-style de GRISOGONO fan diamond earrings.
