Every February, Berlin hosts one of the most prestigious and largest film festivals with the second-largest film market called the European Film Market. This year’s 69th Berlinale International Film Festival was held from 7-17 February, with Danish director Lone Scherfig’s The Kindness of Strangers as its opening film. This particular year also marks Dieter Kosslick’s last of his 18-year tenure as Berlinale’s director. But past the bittersweet farewell and the cold winds at Potdsdamer Platz, the festival welcomes filmmakers and film connoisseurs to witness cinema at its very best. Lucky for us, we not only get to treat our eyes on-screen as with film screenings, come red carpets. And with red carpets, come red carpet looks. The following, in no particular order, are a few looks that captured our attention for their cinematic elegance and personal flair.
