Lana Del Rey joined a host of actresses taking to the red carpet for the 2012 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ premiere this evening.

The American singer selected an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 gown.

As you know, I haven’t really taken to Lana, but on this occasion I love this black strapless gown with a peaked detail on the bodice and a draped, tiered detail on the hip.

A silver Chopard necklace and a black box clutch completed her look.

After sporting a strong lip colour for the Met Gala, she opted for a nude colour for a clean, fresh look.

Tumbling red locks and a gorgeous (rare) smile provided the finishing touches.
