Cannes 2011 kicked off with a flurry of fabulous frocks, as Rachel McAdams, Uma Thurman and Salma Hayek were just some of the A-listers walking the red carpet on the uber glam opening night.
Going all out for the premiere of her new movie Midnight In Paris co-starring Owen Wilson, the gorgeous Rachel McAdams wowed in a stunning red lace and nude panelled Marchesa gown teamed with metallic Casadei heels and Bulgari jewels.
Meanwhile, Cannes juror Uma Thurman had earlier been spotted arriving for the festival in a beautiful Louis Vuitton oriental-print silk dress, and a quick change later for photos had opted for a white Dolce & Gabbana dress. But it was her red carpet entrance that really stole the show, as she worked a stunning white feathered strapless Versace gown with sizzling thigh-high split. An elegant up-do and gleaming green Chopard earrings and bracelet completed her look.
And not to be outdone by her A-list pals, Puss In Boots star Salma Hayek worked a divine strapless Gucci gown with her hair swept seductively over one shoulder.
A stunning start to the festival - with no doubt plenty more super stylish looks to come.
We'll keep you posted!
