Roll out the red carpet and brace for the white-hot blaze of paparazzi flashes. Look both ways for limousines: It’s the last two weeks in May, and the stars are coming out for the most prestigious film festival in the world, the Festival de Cannes.
This is the 76th edition of the event, where actors, directors, producers, and the who’s who of cinema converge on the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in pursuit of the Palme d’Or, awarded to the best film, and a host of juried prizes.
Here we present stellar homes worthy of the limelight: Whether a grand palais, a waterfront villa, or a lofty penthouse, all of them reside in the heart of this, the ultra-chic, sun–kissed city on the French Riviera. Cannes, are you ready for your closeup?
