The 60th edition of the Cannes Film Festival reportedly had more glitz and glam than ever before. Jewelry from Chopard (which hosted the event for the 10th year), Mont Blanc and de Grisogono lit up the red carpet, making it easy to spot which celebs were following a style trend set earlier this year—the bare neck.


Angelina Jolie attended the premiere of Ocean's Thirteen wearing a Chopard 20-carat yellow-diamond cocktail ring and 10-carat yellow-diamond earrings. Andie MacDowell wore Montblanc's Dontalle earrings and La Dame Blanch bracelet to another event. Diane Kruger and Eva Mendes were also among the "necklace-less" celebs.


Kerry Washington went in the opposite direction, wearing a bold necklace by Boucheron, and Mischa Barton (above) made a bold style statement, wearing a gold multi-chain drop necklace down her back.
