Alexandra Maria Lara was breathtaking on the red carpet tonight for the ‘On the Road’ Cannes Film Festival premiere.

The Romanian-born German actress wore one of my favourite pieces from the Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture collection.

What a stunning creation.

She opted to keep the styling simple for her fully-beaded short sleeve gown which was accented with a velvet floral appliqué at the waist.

A light red lip colour and diamond bracelet completed her look.

Needless to say she is one of my faves of the festival, even though this was on my wish list for Hilary Swank.
