The Cannes Film Festival marked the opening of its 70th edition yesterday with a screening of the Marion Cotillard-starred film Ismael's Ghost. However, it was the pre-show red carpet event that grabbed the spotlight as celebrities showcased fashion's finest masterpieces. From Lily-Rose Depp in Chanel, Bella Hadid in Alexandre Gauthier, Elle Fanning in Vivienne Westwood, Sara Sampaio in Zuhair Murad, Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen and Naomie Harris in Gucci, the red carpet showcased the best in haute couture.

Complementing the stunning dresses were the sparkling accessories with the focus on Chopard, who is the official partner of the event and creator of the festival's coveted Palme d'Or trophy. Among those bedecked with Chopard's stunning pieces were Marion Cotillard, Julianne Moore and Will Smith.
