For some the Cannes Film Festival is, well, a film festival. For others it's the chance to drink free-flowing champers on a mega-yacht. This year the red carpet at Cannes has welcomed the likes of Blake Lively and Cate Blanchett who have worn gowns to end all gowns. But the party scene has been just as lively.
The parties in Cannes aren't your average soiree. Here you could bump into Robert Pattinson on the dance floor and borrow a lipstick from Lupita Nyong'o in the loos. Casual Cannes is not. A night down on La Croisette involves Veuve (or something equally fancy) and yacht hopping. In Cannes, a night isn't a night out without stepping on at least one Sunseeker or seeing a rainbow of Roberto Cavalli cut-out gowns.

Cara Delevingne made her first appearance at this year's festival at the De Grisogono party. Cara wore a white beaded Roberto Cavalli gown with a low scooping back which she paired with a necklace, worn in reverse so that it fell down her back. Cara hung out with the first lady of Cannes, Sharon Stone, who wore a red body-skimming dress with a shell necklace. Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Amber Heard and Riley Keough were also at the fancy bash.
Speaking of supermodels, on Monday evening they united at the Chopard dinner as A Liu Wen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Arlenis Sosa, Eva Herzigová, Petra Nemcova and Adriana Lima wore a rainbow of pastel floor-sweeping Elie Saab gowns and, of course, lots of Chopard jewels.
Jennifer Lawrence's Dior hat-trick [Getty]
Jennifer Lawrence was officially our favourite part goer when she turned up at a house party in Dulwich last month. Over in Cannes J-Law wore THREE Christian Dior outfits in one day on Saturday, while promoting the third installment of The Hunger Games. When in Cannes eh? In the day she wore a super cute Dior white skirt and crop top with Riviera-appropriate beach motif.
Then J-Law attended an Armani party in a black Dior silk jumpsuit with a plunging V, which she paired with a gold waistbelt. She then changed into another Dior look for a Hunger Games party, this time wearing a black sheer tank dress over a blue mini dress.
