The Cannes Film Festival is paparazzi central, a place where photos of couples who are merely co-stars — like Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson, at the premiere of “The Beaver” above — as well as those who are romantic partners — like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, below — are snapped and circulated at a whiplash-inducing pace.
With the festival now beyond its halfway point, let’s press pause for a moment and peruse some of the glamorous pairings that have been captured so far. Then, should you be so inclined to exercise your celebrity-assessment voting rights, feel free to participate in the poll below and choose which of the 10 couples featured here looked sharpest on the Croisette.
