The fellows over at Condé Nast’s Men.Style.com (the online home of GQ and Details) asked me to compile a feature and slideshow on the most stylish moments in the six decade history of the Cannes Film Festival – focusing on men of course. Doing the photo research was the most fun part, if a trifle exhausting.
Making the final selection of 20 slides involved some tough choices, and many deserving snaps and icons including Orson Welles ended up on the library floor, but the end result turned out brilliantly if I do say so myself. Above is a highlight showing the young Keith Richards at the festival in 1971. You can see the full feature here.
