She is the leading lady so perhaps it was only fitting that Roman Polanski's wife Emmanuelle Seigner stole the show on the red carpet in Cannes.
Looking loud in her red dress, which took plunging necklines to a whole new level, all eyes were on the blonde as she waltzed along the red carpet with her husband in her custom Alexandre Vauthier low-cut silk jersey gown which she styled with red Christian Louboutin sandals.
With her long dress slit up to her thighs the French actress looked vibrant in her dress, the 46-year-old who stars in Venus In Fur - Roman’s adaptation of the David Ives Broadway play.

Mother-of-two Emmanuelle's dress perfectly showed off her lily white skin and with a slick of red lipstick and minimal make-up the actress certainly upstaged fellow actress Nicole Kidman.
With the chilly breeze blowing her red dress around her legs the The Diving Bell and the Butterfly star kept hold of her husbands hand as they negotiated the red carpet.
The film is about an actress trying to get a director to give her a role.

It is not Polanksi's only offering in Cannes.
Three years after Senna, the hit film biography of the late Brazilian racing driver Ayrton Senna, sporting documentaries about Jackie Stewart, Muhammad Ali and Pele are competing for attention at the Cannes Film Festival.
In Weekend of a Champion, the Polish-French filmmaker Roman follows Stewart, his long-time friend, as he prepares to drive in the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix, at a time when the risks to drivers were far greater than they are now.

Polanski said he had forgotten about the film, which was screened at the Berlin film festival in 1972 but never released, until a recent call from a processing lab holding the footage.
He decided to resurrect it, adding a sequence where he and Stewart reunite more than 40 years later to discuss how the sport has changed.
'Back in the day, it was much freer. People could practically, or almost, walk onto the track. Now it's a bit NASA, a bit Martian,' Polanski said after the revised version premiered in Cannes on Tuesday.

Three-times world champion Stewart, now 73, said Formula One had always been at the sharp end of technology, "but I think the racing is still as good today as ever, maybe even better".
The animal is the same, the driver has the same mentality, the same type of person," he told Reuters in an interview.
British director Stephen Frears' documentary "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight" aims to bring public attention to the boxer's court battle after he refused to fight in the Vietnam War, a stand that made him known far beyond his sport.

It's a wrap for the Cannes International Film Festival this weekend, with the closing schedule to include Roman Polanski's Venus in Fur; Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive; Jerome Salle's Zulu, with Orlando Bloom and Forest Whitaker; and the annual Cannes film awards.
After two weeks, 20 films and parade after parade down the red carpet, the Cannes Film Festival has not produced a clear-cut frontrunner for the Palme d'Or.
The prestigious award, given to the best film in competition, will be handed out Sunday night, decided upon by a jury headed by Steven Spielberg. And while this year's festival has boasted a cinematic feast, no single film is believed to have clearly set itself apart from the pack.
