Its official, Cannes Film Festival has started.

Salma Hayek arrived with Antonio Banderas at the Carlton Beach for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Puss In Boots” Photocall.

We should not be surprised that the Latin beauty is wearing Gucci.

She opted to wear a cognac Gucci leather strapless dress with a floral appliqué shrug and the runway purple snake-skin belt from the Fall 2011 collection.

Whilst I love the creativity, I don’t think the shrug was necessary but is does add a fun element to the look.

The actress becomes the first to carry the Gucci 1973 bag which I saw at the Gucci Fall 2011 press day recently.
