Alain Delon at Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival is taking place during these days. Throughout its existence it has been, one, if not the most famous film festival in the world due to three things in my opinion: the films shown, Cannes and the French Riviera's settings, and those who attend it. Looking back at the festival's history one can definetly see an evolution of fashion portrayed by some of the most talented and stylish actors.
Below we have Alain Delon (like Michael Caine another regular in this blog) attending the festival circa 1960 (the exact date escapes my mind) with his then girlfriend, fellow actress Romy Schneider (Sissi, La Piscine).
Both are wearing color coordinated white outfits that are ideal for a summer brunch. Delon's ensemble is classic and I like the floral touch he added to it.
And speaking of Alain Delon, in one of this blog's first posts I recommend watching his 1960 film "A Plein Soleil", the original version of "The Talented Mr. Ripley", well I recommend it's the ultimate early 60s Italian menswear film. Great ideas for this summer.
If I'm not mistaken in this blog's first post you can see some photos from actors attending Cannes in the 60s and 70s.
