The Cannes Film Festival is a platform for displaying breathtaking and attention-grabbing ensembles.
Beyond its iconic fashion moments, it has also become a platform for expressing protests and delivering powerful political messages.
Recently, Mahlagna Jaberi, an Iranian model, made a powerful statement at the Cannes Film Festival by wearing a black bodycon dress with a noose-like collar, symbolizing the need to stop executions in Iran.
The dress aimed to draw attention to the recent wave of protests following the death of Mahsa Amini.
Taking to Instagram, Jaberi dedicated her outfit to the people of Iran.
She captioned, "Dedicated to the people of Iran. #76thcannesfilmfestival ."
This protest follows another incident at Cannes where a woman staged a demonstration by pouring fake blood on herself.
These acts have made headlines, highlighting the festival as a platform for political statements.
