Paris, May 12 (IANS) Hollywood stars like Blake Lively, Naomi Watts and Julianne Moore glittered on the prestigious red carpet of the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival, with Kristen Stewart sporting a daring look in a see-through dress.
The stars landed on the red carpet at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in the French Riviera-based town for the opening ceremony, a screening of Woody Allen's film Cafe Society, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Watts, Moore and Lively paved the way for the other stars who arrived on the crimson runway in their well-dressed ensembles.
Lively, who is expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, meanwhile stole the spotlight in a stunning gown.
The sparkling number in a nude hue skimmed over the actress' stunning figure, with her small bump on show.
The glittering dress swept along the red carpet with a slightly sheer chiffon skirt. Lively added some statement jewels, adorning her hands with diamond rings.
She kept her hair simple, tossing her blonde hair over one shoulder while she added a pop of colour with a bold pink lip.
Indian actress Mallika Sherawat also sported an interesting gown with a blue-coloured trail. She picked an off-shoulder Georges Hobeika gown which she paired with a diamond neckpiece from Maison Mellerio for the opening ceremony.
Meanwhile, Watts looked gorgeous in a pale lilac Giuseppe Zanotti number. The 47-year-old actress wore a strapless column dress that clung nearly to her slender curves, with the fabric covered in delicate mirror-like embellishments.
She completed her look with a heavily-adorned necklace.
"Still Alice" star Moore stunned in an intricate black gothic ensemble. The dress was covered with silver and gold shimmering whirls, going up to her chest into the shape of two cobras.
The red-haired actress wore her russet mane slicked back into a chic, straight hairdo.
Actresses Eva Longoria, Jessica Chastain and Kirsten Dunst among others also dazzled on the red carpet of the gala, which will conclude on May 22.
