Thurman wowed the crowd at Cannes' "Clouds of Sils Maria" premiere in a canary yellow custom-made Atelier Versace couture gown in silk cady and chiffon.

The svelte 79-year-old siren Loren outshone women half her age in head-to-toe red at the screening of "Human Voice," directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti.

Taken from the haute couture spring-summer 2014 collection, Lebanese designer Saab showed he's lost none of his talent with va-va-voom traffic stoppers.
Oscar-winning actress Nyong'o shone bright at the Calvin Klein Women in Film event in Cannes, wearing a shimmering blue Calvin Klein strapless dress with a slashed bodice. To complement the look, the "12 Years a Slave" star wore teardrop cutout crystal earrings and silver sandals.
