Celebrities at the 71st Cannes Film Festival have gone into Instagram overdrive. While most of us are busy documenting our mundane lives, some of the most famous people in the world are living it up in southern France. You would be doing the same if you had the chance to be at one of the most stylish affairs of the year. From red carpet appearances and photo calls to parties and after-parties, few aspects of the real (and seriously fabulous) lives of these celebrities actually take place off camera when on the French Riviera. So it’s about time you learned something from them. Take cues on how to do Cannes, on the off chance that you find yourself there next year:
