Naomi Watts shimmers and sparkles in embellishment and feathers, Charlize Theron goes bold in body-skimming gown, and Fan Bingbing is a bohemian dream in floral embroidery. Here, the 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival red-carpet looks we couldn't get enough of this week.

Naomi Watts at the La Tête Haute Premiere: When you look good in feathers, why not choose them for your wedding day? For Naomi Watts's latest look, she opted for the glamorous embellishment along with elegant beading, by way of an Elie Saab Couture gown. It isn't the typical bridal dress, but if you're a high-fashion loving woman, this number would make a grand statement in off-white or even an unexpected lavender. The bells and whistles of her ensemble worked for Cannes, but we'd advise a sleek chignon or ponytail and minimal accessories to let the gown play centerstage.

Charlize Theron at the Mad Max: Fury Road Premiere: Charlize Theron is a Dior girl through and through, so it was no surprise to see her wear a custom-made Couture design from the iconic French fashion house on the red carpet. Her strapless yellow form-fitting number with a silk chiffon back that flowed into a slight train was not only impossible to miss, but would surely make a stunning bridal gown in white or even a non-traditional pale pink.

Fan Bingbing at the Mad Max: Fury Road Premiere: Colorful feather embroidery fashioned like flowers set against pale grey tulle is just the right way to go for a bohemian bride. The hue of this Marchesa gown is soft and plays up the dress's other showstopping qualities, but could just as easily work in white or pale blue, as well as toning down the embellishment in more nuanced, tonal colors. Plus, the floral-and-crystal headpiece is perfectly on trend for brides.
