The brunette beauty rocked the wet hair look while sporting a nude makeup palette with a swipe of pink blush.

She was joined by her movie star husband Michael, 45, who looked dashing in a navy blazer and matching trousers, paired with an unbuttoned white shirt.

Also in attendance was Noomi Rapace, who made a bold fashion statement in a red mini dress that she wore under a brown coat.

After Cannes was canceled entirely in 2020 and held under strict health protocols in 2021, the red carpet returned in all its glamor on Tuesday night for the opening ceremony.

The film chosen to open the festival was Final Cut, a comedic love letter to cinema and Z-list zombie films from the team behind the award-winning film The Artist.

Many TikTok stars are set to walk the red carpet this year after organizers sought to spruce up their image by teaming up with the video streaming platform, which sponsors an award for short films.

A total of some 35,000 film professionals are expected at the festival between May 17 and 28, hoping for a return to form for cinema’s most glamorous event after two years of being hampered by Covid-19 restrictions. .

‘We are ready. The town hall has just redone everything – the whole square – so we hope it will be fine,” said Jérémie Tripet, manager of “L’Avenue”, a bistro just off the main thoroughfare known as La Croisette. .

A major exception is the absence of Russians, due to the impact of sanctions on the war in Ukraine and a decision by organizers that state-related delegates are not welcome. China is also expected to have a limited presence due to its ongoing Covid restrictions.

But otherwise, the festival is keen to put the pandemic in the past, with no mandatory masks or passes this year — and no party restrictions.

Moviegoers can find themselves in the usual feast of new releases and competing entries, braving the festival’s well-known opinionated crowds, who are never shy about cheering and booing during screenings.

The annual two-week event will see the highly anticipated Top Gun: Maverick films and King of Rock ‘N Roll’ biopic Elvis shown.

There’s a lot of excitement around Australian Baz Luhrmann’s biopic Elvis Presley, who hopes to recreate the buzz he generated when he brought the cancan to Cannes with Moulin Rouge! 20 years ago.

Elvis, playing out of competition, sees newcomer Austin Butler don the King’s blue suede shoes. Tom Hanks plays his infamous manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

21 films are in the running for the Palme d’Or, including David Cronenberg’s latest body horror fable, Crimes of the Future, starring Lea Seydoux and Kristen Stewart.

The Canadian director told IndieWire he’s likely to cause walkouts “within the first five minutes”.

There are only five women directors in competition, hoping to follow the success of last year’s winner, Titane, which made Julia Ducournau the second woman to win the Palme.

Alongside all the glitz, festival director Thierry Fremaux said Cannes aimed to keep the war in Ukraine in the spotlight.

“Together we will make a great festival – we will think a lot about cinema and never stop thinking about Ukraine.”

The latest film by Lithuanian director Mantas Kvedaravicius, killed by Russian forces in Ukraine last month, will receive a special screening.

He was filming a sequel to his famous documentary Mariupolis, about the conflict in the Ukrainian region of Donbass, when he was allegedly captured and killed.

The main competition also includes exiled Russian Kirill Serebrennikov, who was unable to attend his two previous nominations due to a politically charged conviction for embezzlement in his country.

Fremaux said the festival wanted to lend a helping hand to “Russians who take risks to resist” while offering “absolute and non-negotiable support to the Ukrainian people”.

The jury responsible for selecting this year’s winners includes Indian superstar Deepika Padukone and two-time Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, and is led by French actor Vincent Lindon.

The biggest film festival in the world will end with the closing ceremony on May 28.
