The catwalk queen, who is not appearing in any of this year’s cinematic projects, commanded attention on the carpet in her quirky floor-length gown, of unconventionally stylish red quilted material.
Pulling into delicate spaghetti straps and cutting straight across her bust in scalloped detailing, the frock then hugged her slender frame at the bodice before cinching in at her famously petite waist, and expanding out into stiff pleats to the floor.
Making the sophisticated look more sexy however, the dress then plunged daringly low at the back to leave much of her smooth, sun-kissed skin and enviably slim figure on show, as she posed fiercely for cameras.
Keeping all eyes on her show-stopping ensemble, she swept her brunette tresses into a slick high ponytail, and accentuated her naturally striking facial features with a classic smoky eye and bold red lip.

The stars were in attendance to view new Netflix film Okja – a Korean drama which follows Mija, a young girl who risks it all to to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend, a giant pig named Okja.
Lily Collins plays Red in the Bong Joon Ho directed flick while Tilda Swinton undertakes the role of villainous Lucy Mirando opposite Jake’s Dr. Johnny Wilcox and Paul Dano’s, Jay.
The film has been under much scrutiny since it was revealed that it would be one of 19 films competing at the renowned film festival after Netflix announced it wouldn’t be brought to French cinemas.
And it seems the furore is certainly not dying down however – after the film screening earlier on Fridaywas stopped for a techincal glitch and audience members booed when its logo appeared at the beginning.
While the film, starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, has been hotly anticipated at this year’s festival thanks to its star-studded cast, it has proved controversial because Netflix has refused to screen it in French cinemas.
The movie was jeered when its logo first appeared and there were further boos when the film stopped five minutes in, after what the festival described as ‘a technical incident’.
Film journalists tweeting about the ‘chaos’ in the screening room said riots were about to break out – with IndieWire’s David Ehrlich stating: ‘Okja starts, huge boos at Netflix logo. Then film plays in wrong aspect ratio and Grand Lumiere almost rioted. Movie stopped.’
While French journalist Elena Lazic added: ‘That didn’t start well. Screen not open properly, significantly cropped at top. 20 riotous minutes before projectionist stopped projection.’
According to the BBC’s Laura Turner: ‘There was shouting from the upper seats and it became apparent the aspect ratio was wrong, so they restarted it after about 10 minutes.
‘The second time around the audience booed the Netflix logo again. But there was also some cheering at the same time and a warm round of applause at the end.’
However the festival quickly issued an apology, insisting the error was technical and not anti-Netflix sabotage – with the film restarted shortly afterwards, and receiving a round of applause at the end.
Director of Okja, Bong Joon Ho, said he ‘loved working with Netflix’, and admitted it was a luxury to be given such an enormous budget – while Cannes jury chair Pedro Almodovar agreed earlier this week that films should have to be screened in cinemas, if producers wanted them to be considered.
A statement from the Cannes Film Festival told MailOnline: ‘A technical incident disrupted the beginning of the screening of Bong Joon-ho’s film, OKJA, which was shown this morning at a press screening at the Lumière Auditorium.
‘The session was interrupted for a few minutes but was then able to carry on as normal.
‘This incident was entirely the responsibility of the Festival’s technical service, which offers its apologies to the director, his teams, the producers and the audience at the showing.’
Okja is one of two Netflix productionsthat has caused controversy this year – with The Meyerowitz Stories, starring A-List names Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Adam Sandler, coming under fire for the same reason.
This year’s festival however runs from May 17-28, and includes 49 films in total – with Marion Cotillard’s flick Isamel’s Ghosts being the first to premiere.
Headed up by Volver director Pedro Almodóvar, members of this year’s judging panel from the Feature Films category include actors Jessica Chastain, Will Smith and Fan Bingbing, as well as directors Paolo Sorrention and Gabriel Yared, of The English Patient fame.
Making this year’s event more exciting is the fact that it marked its 70th year of running, which luxury jeweller Chopard is commemorating by creating a diamond-set edition of the coveted Palme d’Or – the highest prize that can be won at Cannes.
Known for her work on popular films such as Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction, actress Uma Thurman has been named as the President in the Un Certain Regard arena – awarding a top prize and up to two other awards for show-stopping pieces of smaller budget, indie cinema.
Aside from films however, A-list stars are set to attend a number of star-studded bashes throughout the festival including the AmFar Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc and Chopard’s annual bash at Port Pierre Canto, co-hosted by Rihanna.
