It’s that time again — the magnificent masses are flocking to Cannes for the film festival. This year marks the 67th annual hobnob, and per usual, everybody is lookin’ super fresh.

Strutting your stuff around the French Riviera doesn't sound like a bad way to spend your time, and this year, we spy some really fun summery nautical looks and bright colors.

We're going to call it seaside chic. And what we're actually loving from the red carpet are the non-gown looks.

A perfect example is the ever-stunning Cate Blanchett and her Delpozo Fall 2014 look. Showing just the faintest hint of midriff, Blanchett isn't slacking when it comes to showing off some punchy colors and well-tailored silhouette. And we can’t forget to mention the citrusy peep-toe heels she’s wearing. Those shoes alone make us want a glass of champagne.

Also in on the two-piece preppy trend is America Ferrera in a bright yellow Louis Vuitton cropped collared top and an orange M Missoni textured pencil skirt.

In our minds, these two got together and were like, "Hey, let's do something a little more fun than a long gown." And America was like, "Crop tops!" And Cate was like, "OK, but let's be tasteful." Then they did a secret best-friend handshake and hit the red carpet.

We're sure that's how it went down.

One more standout number comes straight from oh-yes-she-did newly buzzed hairdo star Rosario Dawson. She stands out in a poppy, colorful pencil dress from Sportmax Fall 2014.

Certainly, everyone in gowns looked gorgeous as well (here's lookin' at you, Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana and Jane Fonda), but there’s something refreshing about these fresh nautical outfits. And, oh, we're sure the films were great too.
