The Met Gala aside, the Cannes Film Festival has to be the most important red-carpet event of the summer. It’s also fascinating fodder for fashion watchers, thanks to the sheer number of movie premieres, glamorous parties and photo calls that make up the event.

As the 12-day festival comes to an end today, we’ve come to one sartorial conclusion: Fashion may be fickle, but celebs are admirably loyal to one dress style - the thigh-high slit.

This risque and risky - gotta keep those undies hidden! - feature has been all over the Cannes red carpet in recent years, trumping even plunging necklines (yes, we kept count). And why not? It’s a detail that can be sexed up or down depending on the style of dress, and can even create the illusion of longer legs.

So who’s been doing the thigh-high at Cannes? Click through above to check out the star-studded list!
