Due to the pandemic, unfortunately Cannes 2020 was cancelled but this year the prestigious Cannes Film Festival is back with a bang! Celebrities lined up looking their best on the red carpet, ascending those hallowed stairs. From Bella Hadid to Marion Cotillard to this year's Lifetime Achievement Award winning Jodie Foster... day 1 started off gloriously.
Bella Hadid in her usual self stunned in a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier halter neck gown with a long sheer train.
Marion Cotillard, whose movie Annette premiered on the first day, shone bright in a shiny Chanel metallic one-shoulder gown with a waist peplum.
Jodie Foster won the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award this year and arrived in a simple and classy white Givenchy column dress with embellishments.
Jessica Chastain looked her gothic best in this stunning corseted black strapless Dior gown, Chopard rubies and bright lips.
This year's jury member Maggie Gyllenhaal looked striking in her nude Celine gown but what really stood out was the unique pleated cape along with it.
Another Celine couture that caught our attention was the one-shouldered sequin gown that Carla Bruni wore.
Too cool for school head of this Cannes year's jury, director Spike Lee, was unimissable in his bright fuchsia Louis Vuitton attire.
British actress Helen Mirren looked happy as a sunshine in her bright yellow Dolce & Gabbana dress.
