Bérénice Béjo officially opened the 2012 Cannes Film Festival at a ceremony held inside the Palais des Festivals this evening.

The Master of Ceremony was radiant wearing a Louis Vuitton red gown.

Her silk mousseline multi-layered gown with a pleated front and a large red bow at the back of the gown has a cascading ombre train.

Flawless makeup, sparkling Chopard jewels and dark tumbling side swept waves completed her look.

This is more like it from Bérénice. Where was this during awards season?
