Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt and Natalie Portman at Cannes.

Nobody would dare to turn this trio away, even if they had on Uggs!

Yet we secretly hope some of them wore flip flops just to mess with the Cannes Film Festival organizers! Ha!

Regardless of footwear, all three women were the epitome of glamour!

With her delicate frame and big doe eyes, Natalie was like a wood nymph in a jade green Lanvin gown with V-neckline and loosely tied sash around her waist.

Cate was as queenly as ever in a STUNNING Armani Privé gown with beaded embellishments and a dramatic bow detail — she's too good for this world!

Finally, Emily hit the red carpet in a Stella McCartney fully beaded, long-sleeved gown that looked glued to her gorgeous figure!

Who's your fave???
