The 2012 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony, held inside the Palais des Festivals on Wednesday evening brought out even more stars.

Virginie Ledoyen: The French actress looked absolutely stunning in a strapless teal goddess-like Elie Saab gown. With neatly pulled back hair, Chopard jewelry and a winning smile, I’m getting Natalie Portman vibes – the utmost compliment, of course.

Eva Herzigova: The model has me completely envious, wearing a gorgeous custom Dolce & Gabbana gown. Covered in crystals, the pale pink ¾ length sleeve gown fits Eva impeccably, although a do find her large diamond Chopard necklace to be unnecessary. That dress can certainly stand on it’s on.

Dolores Chaplin: The actress, and granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin, wore a bright chartreuse Lanvin gown, in a silhouette similar to that of Emma Stone’s dress at the 2012 Golden Globes. Whilst I love the bright colour of the dress, I wish she had added a bright belt or shoes.

Kara Hayward: The young ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ star makes her Cannes debut wearing a tiered lemon Louis Vuitton dress. The light colour and sweet shape is perfect for such a young actress. A headband accented up-do completes the look.
