Eva showcased her toned figure in the form-fitting orange number, which allowed her to flash a hint of cleavage with its cut-out design.

The beauty added a dazzling par of diamond drop earrings to her look, while opting to keep the rest of her accessories to a minimum.

Eva allowed her dress to do all the talking as she swept her chocolate locks into a high ponytail, while accentuating her gorgeous features with a glam make-up palette including a dramatic smoky eye.

Elsewhere, Elle looked lovely in her off-the-shoulder, midi dress while she teamed with sparkly black mesh heels.

After Cannes was entirely canceled in 2020 and held under strict health protocols in 2021, the red carpet returned in all its glamor on Tuesday night for the Opening Ceremony.

The film chosen to open the festival was Final Cut, a comedy love letter to filmmaking and Z-list zombie movies from the team behind the award-winning The Artist.

There is set to be an array of TikTok stars taking to the red carpet this year after organizers sought to refresh their image by partnering with the video streaming platform, which is sponsoring an award for short films.

In total, some 35,000 film professionals are expected to attend the festival between May 17 and 28, hoping for a return to form for cinema’s most glamorous event after two years when it was hampered by Covid-19 restrictions.

‘We are ready. The town hall has just redone everything – the whole place – so we hope it will go well,’ said Jeremie Tripet, manager of ‘L’Avenue’, a bistro just off the main drag known as La Croisette.

One major exception is the absence of Russians, due to the impact of sanctions over the war in Ukraine and a ruling from the organizers that state-linked delegates are not welcome. China is also expected to have a limited presence due to its continuing Covid restrictions.

But otherwise the festival is keen to put the pandemic in the past, with no mandatory masks or health passes this year – and no restrictions to partying.

Film fans can get stuck into the usual feast of new releases and competition entries, braving the festival’s famously opinionated crowds, who are never shy about cheering and booing during screenings.

The two-week annual event will see hotly-anticipated films Top Gun: Maverick and King of Rock ‘N Roll’ biopic Elvis shown.
