This year's festival will take place from May 16 to 27, and it has a total of 21 films competing for the Palme d'Or, the highest prize awarded in the event. Many big names in the showbiz industry stunned in their jaw-dropping outfits, but Filipino celebrities who attented the event are nothing to be glossed over either as they also became scene-stealers on and off the red carpet.

Take a look at the celebrities who made their mark at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival one way or another:

Kylie Verzosa

Kylie Verzosa embodied the elegance and beauty of the night sky in her massive black ball gown with goose feathers and encrusted crystals by Mark Bumgarner. Adding to her regal look is a diamond jewelry set from Luna by Drake that was styled by Katrina Cruz.

After taking the world by storm when she won the Miss Universe pageant in 2015, Pia Wurtzbach has once again stolen the spotlight when she walked on the red carpet wearing a black dress with a customized corset, letting everyone know that she is still a queen through and through.

Prior to this, she also shined like a bright star in her metallic scarlet gown by Mark Bumgarner, complementing the look with jewellery from French label APM Monaco and styling from Perry Tabora.

Bela Padilla

Bela Padilla is at Cannes, France to learn more about the filmmaking industry, having fostered a passion for taking up directorial projects.

"The education I’m getting here in Cannes is so precious to me. If I had told myself at 16 years old that I’d be here today, talking to fellow filmmakers about the right directions to follow and necessary changes we need to adapt to make life easier for the next generation, I would have laughed," Padilla wrote in her post.

"I feel inspired to write again and I’m now hungry for more. We’ve been watching films that opened my eyes again, and I’ve met cinematographers, distributors, directors, composers, girl bosses, guy bosses (that support girl bosses) and the conversations have been so inspiring," she added.
