What's more popular on the red carpet in Cannes than Gucci gowns? It's got to be a glamorous pair of sunnies. Hey, putting on giant cat eye sunglasses makes us feel more pulled together even if we're wearing yoga pants, so maybe the same principle applies with gowns. Here are the sunglasses stars like Rihanna, Elle Fanning and Marion Cotillard wore to the film festival, with styles running the gamut from classic to retro to a little kooky.

Before she even left the airport to arrive in Cannes, Lily-Rose Depp wore these futuristic wraparound shades.

Elle Fanning’s $570 cat eye Miu Miu sunnies are too much fun.

Elle had a crazy pair of sunglasses for practically every daytime look, from retro sunnies to another goggles-esque Miu Miu look.

The custom Andy Wolf Eyewear frames that Rihanna wore with a Dior strapless gown are very Matrix-y, as Vogue noted.

What goes with a beret that says “Anarchy”? Cara Delevingne says aviator glasses and a major red lip.

Lily Collin’s flashy Prive Revaux sunnies are just $29.95.

Marion Cotillard somehow makes a concert T-shirt appropriate for Cannes by accessorizing with red hot Fendi boots and avant-garde sunnies.

But Salma Hayek's gigantic Gucci sunglasses might've been the most attention-grabbing at Cannes, although we almost missed them because our eyes were glued to her Gucci pjs. Between these shades and her pink hair, Salma is clearly doing Cannes right.
