The Cannes International Film Festival is 66 this year. The prestigious, world-renown and European-centric festival kicks off today on the sun-kissed French Riviera until May 26. A-Gent of Style takes you on a small tour to see some of the films that have made it to the Official Selection 2013 and the members of this year’s jury. It looks like another diverse, rich and exciting festival ahead. May the best win the coveted Palme d’or!

Clockwise: Jane Campion, Agnes Varda, Lynne Ramsay, Nicole Kidman, Daniel Auteuil, Thomas Vinterberg, Vidya Balan, Christoph Waltz, Ang Lee. Centre: Steven Spielberg, President of the Jury

And Cannes wouldn’t be Cannes without a bit of controversy. You won’t see Nymphomaniac with Charlotte Gainsbourg since its director Lars Von Triers was declared persona non grata since his Nazi gaffe at the 2011 festival. Pity!

As you can see, actresses more than their male counterparts will top the bill this year.  A-Gent of Style can’t wait to ogle at the celebrities arriving on the red carpet tonight in their couture regalia. Werk it, gurlz!
