As the 75th Cannes film festival is coming near its end on May 28, Cannes days 8 and 9 saw some of the most star-studded red carpet because of the celebration of the 75th Anniversary party of the film festival.

All of this and much more happened during days 8 and 9 of the Cannes Film Festival currently taking place in the South of France!
