The Cannes Film Festival is also a chance for stars to reveal their newest outfits!
Elza Zylberstein with a little nip slip. It’s definitely not a first!
Singer Kristina Bazan also revealed her fair share while going to see the movie “Slack Bay”.
Reality TV star Kendall Jenner chose to wear a black and see-through dress that had heads turning!
Amal Clooney wore a long bright yellow dress and high heels and looked extravagant.
It’s typical of companies to try and promote their brand in movies, especially through the use of smartphones and accessories.
This is evident in Spider-Man, as we can see him using a Sony Ericsson throughout the movie.
In “We’re the Millers”, Apple devices show up quite often.
We also often see them protected by personalised phone cases in order to prevent them from breaking!
