It must be easier to get attention for a hideous dress than a knockout one at Cannes, which accounts for all the fashion disasters. But these ladies lit up the red carpet - some of them more than once. Juror Diane Kruger, Jessica Chastain, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts and Berenice Bejo are our Best Dressed of the festival. In the men's department, it's a very close tie between Ewan McGregor and Bill Murray.
