24 May 2013 by

If, like us, you too have been obsessed with the ultra glitzy Cannes red carpet, you will have been peeled to the fashion coverage of all the A-list looks from this year’s film festival. However, most of the images from the Croisette only show the front view of the dresses, leaving out some of the most beautiful features of the red carpet frocks.

So we’ve decided to look at some of Cannes’ most gorgeous back shots, from Jessica Hart’s Grecian pink gown to Sharon Stone’s serpent heavy number. From embellishment to sexily draped fabric, the Cannes stars have perfectly framed their honed backs for the cameras.

If you are looking to recreate the backless look, its important to first get the skin on your back prepared to be bared. After months under layers of clothes with little contact with the sun, most of our backs are in need some serious TLC.

If you suffer from even the lightest ‘backne’ aka spotty back there are several steps you can take to get your back match fit. Firstly, for removing dry skin there is nothing better than a body brush with a long handle. Massage the skin in the shower with circular motions and make sure you cover your entire back. Then invest in some products. Origins Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Pads are a great choice and you can give your skin an internal oomph with Murad’s Skin Clarify Dietary Supplements. If you are still unsatisfied check out Bliss’s Backcial and Aveda’s Deep Cleansing Back Treatment for in-spa level attention.
