Cannes Film Festival draws in the biggest stars from around the world, yet it was Lebanese Director and Oscar nominee Nadine Labaki - who gave us all the feels when she became the first Arab president of the film festival's jury board this year - leading the glamour last night as she arrived in style at the premiere of Les Misérables during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival.

Taking to the red carpet in a black silk velvet column edged gown with devoré ostrich feathers, the brunette beauty commanded attention in a breathtaking look from the Ralph & Russo spring/summer 2018 couture collection. Accessorizing with Cartier jewels, this show-stopping dress follows fast in the footsteps of a night-blue cape-sleeve tulle Dior gown she sported on the opening night of this year’s festival.

Labaki was joined at the iconic Palais des Festivals by the likes of American actress Amber Herd, Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio and Hollywood starlets Elle Fanning and Juliette Moore, who all exuded elegance in a dazzling display of gowns. Brazilian blogger Thassia Naves also opted for Ralph & Russo, looking flawless in a deep lavender and ruby metallic lurex degrade gown, featuring an asymmetric bodice and sash from the spring summer 2019 ready-to-wear collection.
