The Cannes Film Festival officially got underway on Wednesday night and the red carpet at the opening ceremony was crawling with celebs.
Once again Salma Hayek is using the French festivities to show off Gucci's couture label Gucci Première gown. Wednesday's gown du jour was a silver beaded silk chiffon gown that oozed Hollywood glamor.
Poor Rachel McAdams looked like a bleeding jellyfish in her embroidered Marchesa gown. There's just too much going on between the cape and train, which she carried like a butler for most of the red carpet. Kinda defeats the purpose, no?
The big surprise, at least for us, was Uma Thurman. She wore a beautiful white Versace feathered gown with a sexy slit that cut right up the front of her dress. For a pop of color, Uma accessorized with lovely emerald chandelier earrings and a bracelet.
And then there was Melanie Griffith who underwhelmed in a Jason Wu gown. Although we must say, she looks pretty good for being a 53 year old broad.
