Cannes Film Festival is back.

After its Covid cancellation last year, the red carpet has once again been rolled out on the Croisette and the stars have private jetted in for their big moment.

The fortnight-long event has an impressive lineup of films, and will see everyone from Jodie Foster to Bella Hadid and Marion Cotillard dress up for a series of daytime photocalls and glitzy evening events. And judging by the looks we’ve already seen on display, the stars have missed the all-out glamour of a red carpet moment.

Jessica Chastain kicked off proceedings with some old-school glamour at the premiere of Annette in a black strapless Dior Couture gown accessorised with Chopard jewellery and a low ponytail.

Bella Hadid meanwhile looked ultra cool in a vintage white column gown from Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring/summer 2002 collection which featured a black sheer halterneck and long black sheer train. She also accessoried with Chopard bling and an elegant up-do.
