Susan Sarandon Was The Smartest Person At Cannes In Her Flat Shoes

This lady keeps on winning.

If the Met Gala is the most fashionable event in North America, then the Cannes Film Festival is the most stylish event in Europe.

The annual festival, which kicked off on Wednesday night, previews films of all different genres, but the real thing to watch is the fashion. And let us tell you, it has not disappointed so far.

Blake Lively, Jessica Chastain and Anna Kendrick seem to have deemed it the year of the yellow dress, as all three ladies have stepped out in the bold hue. But the real winner of Cannes? Susan Sarandon, who walked the red carpet in a comfortable suit and flat shoes.

Check out the best-dressed stars below and let us know if you agree with our picks.

Doutzen Kroes in Brandon Maxwell: It's always nice to see a refreshing look on the red carpet -- and this gown is just that. The dress is almost architectural at the top but it has just the right amount of softness at the bottom.
