To mark the beginning of the 64th edition of the Festival de Cannes, today May 11, 2011, I'd like to remember one of the most elegant and well dressed actors that has ever attended the Festival.
Cary Grant was filming in 1955 "To Catch A Thief" on the French Riviera, and Cannes was one of the film's main locations. Taking a break from the shooting, Grant decided to stroll along the Boulevard de la Croisette and experience the frenzy surrounding the Festival.
As it is known, the Boulevard de la Croisette is a 2 km long road that strecthes along the Cannes coastline, offering majestic views of the Mediterranean and nearby iconic hotels and restaurants.
Cary Grant's ensemble, made up of what appears to be a dark linen jacket and light colored pants paired with an open shirt and dark cravat, was more than appropiate for this occasion.
