The luckiest lady was surely Juliette Binoche - not only did the French actress win the Best Actress award but she also got to wear floor-length white dress designed just for her by Phoebe Philo at Celine. Not that we're jealous.
Diane Kruger ditched her favourite monochrome colour palette and chose an eye-popping dress by designer of the moment, Jason Wu. And Kate Beckinsale, surely the hardest working woman at Cannes this year, continued her red carpet triumph in a black ruffled dress.
And they weren't the only stars who caught our eye. Cheryl Cole caused quite a stir in a super-sexy cut-out white dress by Versace. Salma Hayek wore yet another beautiful dress from the new Gucci Premiere collection - we predict that it's set to be a red carpet staple from now on. And Milla Jovovich wowed in the Louis Vuitton dress that Elle Macpherson wore to close the a/w 2010 show back in February.More
