  • Bella Hadid has been attending the Cannes Film Festival in France since 2016.

  • Over the years, the 25-year-old model has worn lots of daring looks at the event.

  • She's worn see-through dresses, giant ruffles, hip-high slits, and more.

Bella Hadid wore her simplest Cannes Film Festival look at the 2018 event.

She walked the red carpet in a strapless, mauve ball gown designed by Christian Dior, as well as a diamond necklace and bracelet.

Her long, straight hair and neutral makeup were equally elegant.

The model made a bolder statement the year before when she wore a red gown made from quilted fabric.

The Dior Haute Couture dress was sleeveless with thin straps, a natural waistband, and a petal-shaped neckline.

She wore it with black sandals, heavy eye makeup, and snake-shaped Bulgari jewels.

Fast forward to the 2022 festival, and Hadid continued to wear classic red-carpet fashion with a slight edgy twist.

She wore a black mermaid dress designed by Gianni Versace in 1987. It had a ruched, strapless bodice, velvet skirt, and a hoop of black fabric across her waist and hips.

One of her looks this year was an understated gown with small, daring details.

Her vintage, white Gucci dress was simple, with long sleeves and a straight skirt.

But she wore it with no bra underneath, and instead added a metal-encrusted pair of underwear seen through the circular cutout at her hip.

At her first Cannes Film Festival in 2016, Hadid wore a sparkling tan gown with a deep neckline.

Her gown was designed by Roberto Cavalli Couture. It had a slip underneath that matched her skin tone and created the appearance of a see-through dress.

It was also decorated with crystals and had a floor-length skirt that extended into a short train. The gown's bodice, on the other hand, was sleeveless with crisscross straps across the chest.

But she dazzled even more in 2018 when she wore a form-fitting halter gown.

Her bold Elie Saab Haute Couture dress was covered in silver sequins.

It perfectly matched her diamond bracelets, earrings, metallic clutch, and sharp eye makeup.

The model took a classic approach with one of her daring 2017 looks.

Her Alexandre Vauthier dress was made from baby-pink satin, and was strapless with a V-shaped neckline. Its wrap-style skirt, on the other hand, had a thigh-high slit that showcased her sparkling sandals.

Hadid wore the look with a statement Bulgari necklace.

Last year, Hadid walked the red carpet in a vintage gown that had a unique bodice.

The Jean Paul Gaultier dress had a black bra underneath a halter top made from twisted mesh. On top was another layer: a strapless white gown that sat beneath her bust.

Some of the mesh material was also attached to the back of the dress, creating a wide train that fanned out behind the model.

She wore three daring trends in one dress at the 2019 event.

Hadid's red gown was designed by Roberto Cavalli. The single-sleeve, backless design had a cutout at one hip and a thigh-high slit in the front of its skirt.

It also had a jeweled strap that wrapped around her shoulders and held the actual dress up. She wore it with red sandals, matching lipstick, and an updo hairstyle.

Hadid rocked the see-through dress trend at Cannes in 2019.

Her Dior Haute Couture had an asymmetrical halter top and tiers of ruffles made from semi-sheer white tulle.

In addition to the gown, Hadid donned a thick silver bracelet, diamond earrings, and a bun hairstyle.

Hadid made one of her most famous — and daring — Cannes appearances in 2016.

She wore a red Alexandre Vauthier gown, which was sleeveless, backless, and had a loose-fitting top with a plunging neckline. The bold gown also had a flowing skirt with a hip-high slit.

Speaking with Vogue last year, the model said she actually feels "embarrassed" by the look, despite it "apparently" being "a very iconic red dress moment."

"I was nervous in this dress. I look very sexual and all these things," she said. "I was still nervous about cameras and nervous about having a lot of makeup on."

Hadid also said the dress didn't match her style, and it gave people a false perception of who she is.

"That's my alter ego. That's Belinda," she joked. "I'm just so the opposite of her. She's very va-va-voom. You know, bless her. Love her. She was very nervous."

Hadid wore what was arguably her boldest Cannes look last year. She walked the red carpet in a black dress with a scoop neckline that extended below her chest.

The design was created by Schiaparelli, which described the garment on Instagram as a "long-sleeved dress in wool crepe with a low-cut neckline."

To cover her chest, Hadid donned a large, lung-shaped necklace that was made from "gilded brass" and "adorned with rhinestones," according to the brand.

The pairing made for one of the most daring looks at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
