Ahna O’Reilly made her first-ever Cannes Film Festival experience a memorable one! The actress has put on a full fashion show in the French Riviera, as she showed up to event after event in high-fashion looks. The latest we love: This Monique Lhuillier design, which she paired with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, H. Stern earrings, and a Jennifer Behr headband—and she gave us the exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the process to get her red carpet-ready. “I felt amazing in the dress,” she told InStyle.com exclusively. “Ever since I put it on for the first time, I knew it was what I wanted to wear. Walking the red carpet in Cannes for the first time was surreal, and a total dream come true.” Click through the gallery for a closer look, and get details from her glam squad, including stylist Caley Lawson, hairstylist Kylee Heath, and makeup artist Kindra Mann on how they made her dream a reality.

Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards in a gorgeous Valentino gown from the designer’s spring 2013 Haute Couture runway. The star’s strapless, full-skirted red dress echoed the advice of celebrity stylist Cher Coulter: “Red always looks good on the red carpet—especially Valentino red,” said Coulter. “The color’s a no-brainer if you want to go classic and you want to stand out.” Aniston finished off her look with Salvatore Ferragamo heels and her signature layered locks. And she isn’t the only one who took a dress from runway to red carpet: George Clooney’s main squeeze Stacy Keibler looked striking in a studded column gown by Naeem Khan, which debuted at New York Fashion Week less than two weeks ago. When we asked Khan if he had any Oscars dresses in the works, he wasn’t so sure if he’d see one of his designs on the red carpet. “There are so many of them! Those kinds of things aren’t so easy, so we’ll see what happens!”
