The ‘12 Years A Slave’ star wowed in a sweeping mint-coloured dress, which billowed beautifully as she whipped down the carpet, outside the town’s Palais Des Festivals.

Julianne Moore also looked stunning in a plunging silver frock, which she wore with a fluffy black bolero.

Sienna Miller was joined by Jake Gyllenhaal on the steps outside the venue as they posed with their fellow jurors.
