Kristin Scott Thomas looked magnificent in a sequin-embellished, midnight blue Armani Prive gown for the Cannes premiere of her latest movie Only God Forgives.

The 52-year-old English actress, who is best known for her roles in nineties hit movies like Four Weddings And A Funeral and The English Patient, paired the show-stealing dress with subtle silver accessories and let her natural elegance and poise work their magic.

This is how we want to look and conduct ourselves at the age of 52, please.
