Cannes Film Festival 2013: We imagined what our favorite classic movie stars would wear if they were walking the red carpet today.

From Carey to Gwyneth to everyone in between, we love our leading ladies—and their red carpet style. But let’s not forget that there were a crop of bold-faced names that paved the way for them, like Audrey, Brigitte, and Elizabeth. Join us a little style rewind to imagine what our favorite classic movie stars would wear if they were attending the Cannes Film Festival today.

Audrey Hepburn, the eternal classic, would wear Dior. We’re envisioning something strapless and with an element of whimsy—and possibly with long gloves. Her modern-day counterpart would be The Great Gatsby’sCarey Mulligan.  

Or you can go the Marlene Dietrich rout, and emulate the star who was known for wearing men’s clothes. She would have felt right at home this season in either Lanvin or Saint Laurent, both of which showed fantastic smoking suits for spring. Her 21st century incarnate? Tilda Swinton, of course. Maybe this year, she’ll give Haider Ackerman a break.

So as we gear up for the Cannes Film Festival 2013 let’s revisit the best of red carpet’s past. Click through the slideshow above to shop our modern interpretation of classic movie star style.
