Attending the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Kristen Stewart kept it simple with a black T-shirt and satin black column skirt with heels.

Stewart's all-black ensemble at the 2016 festival consisted of an understated T-shirt and maxi column skirt with stilettos with layered chain necklaces, a silver bracelet, and a black watch.

At the "On The Road" premiere during the 2012 festival, Stewart wore an ivory dress with blue-and-green embroidery.

The V-neck ivory satin dress, which had a high slit, a black belt, and blue-and-green leaves embroidered on it, was a Balenciaga design, according to HuffPost. Stewart wore her hair down in waves and paired the dress with strappy black heels and a subtle gold necklace.

Acting as a jury member at the 2018 festival, one of Stewart's looks was an updo and a black halterneck gown with a tulle skirt.

Stewart's Chanel Fall 2018 ready-to-wear gown, as seen on Vogue Runway, had a halterneck, a sheer bodice, a tulle skirt, and triangles of folded satin on the chest and waist. The minimal yet elegant look also included black strappy heels and a silver bracelet.

Stewart was appointed to be a Chanel ambassador in 2013, according to Women's Wear Daily, so many of her red-carpet looks have been brought to life by the French fashion house.

In 2014, Stewart brought a subtle touch of glam to the Cannes red carpet in a sparkly silver vest and matching pants.

According to HuffPost, Stewart's silver sparkly vest and pants with elastic waistband and ankles were Chanel co-ords. The actress added nude heels and a silver bracelet while leaving her auburn hair down and to one side.

Stewart wore a sheer embroidered lace gown to the closing ceremony of the 2018 festival, marking an end to her jury duties.

Stewart wore a mix of androgynous and glamour looks at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, and her look at the festival's closing ceremony was the latter. Her lace maxi dress with scalloped short sleeves and gold embroidery showed that the actress' style has range.

She paired the gown, which The Telegraph reported at the time was a Chanel design, with nude heels and her hair in a twisted updo.

Stewart attended the screening of "Blackkklansman" in 2018 wearing a silver minidress and Louboutins, which she took off on the red carpet.

Stewart arrived at the premiere of Spike Lee's "Blackkklansman" in a silver Chanel Couture minidress with crystal shards and metallic embroidery, according to Vogue.

After walking the red carpet in a simple pair of black Louboutin heels, Stewart took them off and walked up the stairs barefoot. The actress similarly broke Cannes' dress code in 2016 when she swapped out a pair of black heels for blue Vans sneakers, as reported by Vogue at the time.

In a May 2017 video with The Hollywood Reporter, shared by the publication on Twitter, Stewart spoke about her feelings towards Cannes's heels-only rule for women: "If you're not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you can't ask me either."

 

At the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Stewart wore a white minidress with feathery tulle sleeves and black heels that she later swapped for sneakers.

Once again wearing Chanel, according to Vogue, Stewart wore an angelic white minidress with long sleeves, formed of delicate tulle that looked like feathers, and Louboutin black heels. She added a touch of grunge to the soft look through her tousled hair and statement pink eyeshadow.

Vogue added that once she had walked the most prominent part of the red carpet, she swapped out her luxury shoes for a pair of heavily-worn blue Vans sneakers for comfort in the first of her protests about Cannes' strict dress code. 

According to Harper's Bazaar, women attending Cannes must be in evening dresses and high heels, without exception.

During her first year attending Cannes in 2012, Stewart wore a bright-red gown with a plunging neckline.

The actress attended the "Cosmopolis" premiere at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in a Reem Acra red gown with a plunging neckline and a touch of lace on the bodice, according to Vogue France.

The fresh-faced actress also wore a red lip and had her hair in a sleek bun for the occasion.

Continuing her loyalty to Chanel for her red-carpet looks, Stewart attended a 2018 protest at Cannes in a distinctly Chanel pantsuit.

According to The Guardian, Stewart was among 82 women working in the film industry, including Cate Blanchett, who silently protested the lack of female directors on the festival's red carpet in 2018.

Stewart wore a white pantsuit with black piping and silver buttons with the Chanel logo on them, according to Harper's Bazaar. She wore her hair up and styled the chic looks with orange sunglasses, red lipstick, and black heeled boots.

Stewart was the ultimate cool girl in a black crop top and textured pants during the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

In a more relaxed take on red-carpet fashion, Stewart looked effortlessly cool in a partly unbuttoned black satin crop top by Chanel, matching woven pants by the French design house, and Oliver Peoples sunglasses, according to Elle.

Stewart had a messy bun, black peep-toe shoes, and a black-and-silver necklace to finish the look.

In 2016, Stewart attended the "Cafe Society" premiere in a sheer black shirt and a grey-and-black skirt.

Vogue reported that Stewart's black sheer shirt with pockets on the chest, and grey-and-black fluted skirt were by Chanel. as was the actress' beauty look for the evening.

Stewart paired the outfit with black heels, vibrant red lipstick, and smoky eyes. Chanel makeup artist Lucia Pica told Vogue this was a deliberate choice to give the actress a "grungy, '90s feel," in contrast to the elegance of her Chanel Resort dress.

Attending the screening of "Crimes Of The Future," Stewart arrived on the red carpet in a Chanel long-sleeved cropped turtleneck formed of a colorful kaleidoscope of embroidery, Harper's Bazaar reported.

She paired the stylish statement top with a white Chanel skirt complete with a giant, silhouette-defining bow on the front, and black heels.

Complete with a bleach-blonde buzzcut at the 2017 festival, Stewart wore a nude bandeau crop top and a high-waisted grey skirt.

Contrasting her bleach-blonde buzzcut hairstyle with the softness of her outfit, Harper's Bazaar reported that Stewart wore another Chanel ensemble for the "120 Beats Per Minute" screening at the 2017 festival.

Stewart wore a nude, sparkly bandeau top with frayed edges and a light-and-dark-grey woven column skirt with suspenders. She finished the look with black heels and a simple silver bracelet. The finished ensemble was a chic yet grungy, unique look that defines Stewart's style.

 

Stewart's most iconic Cannes red-carpet look was in 2018, where she wore an androgynous black ensemble.

According to Popsugar, Stewart attended the "Knife + Heart" screening during the 2018 festival in an edgy take on a traditional suit by Chanel.

The actress wore a long, black blazer over a mostly-unbuttoned white shirt with black latex leggings and – once again leaving behind heels in breach of Cannes' dress code – black leather loafers.

Stewart gelled her hair forward and opted for black eye makeup to add a touch of drama to the iconic tailored look.
