Cannes Film Festival 2021: Stars arrive at red carpet of Benedetta premiere

0


The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing after being cancelled last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, and a slew of stars stepped out for the event’s fourth day.

And Maggie Gyllenhaal looked stunning as she graced the red carpet alongside Izabel Goulart and Tina Kunakey for the premiere of Benedetta on Friday. 

The Donnie Darko star, 43, put on a stylish display in a plunging red gown that showed off a glimpse of her cleavage as she posed on the red carpet. 

Maggie’s sleeveless ensemble was cinched in at the waist before billowing out into a fringed skirt that fell gracefully to the floor. 

She styled her brunette locks in a sleek bob that she tucked away behind her ears, and she wore dark eyeliner to make her blue eyes pop.

The actress complemented her glamorous look by accessorising with a diamond necklace and matching stud earrings and a large hoop earring for the occasion.

Izabel oozed glamour in a one-shouldered ivory gown, and she was sure to turn heads in her ensemble as it was adorned with jewels along one side of her waist. 

The Brazilian model’s figure-hugging ensemble accentuated her statuesque figure as she posed for photos, and her dress featured cut-out detailing on one side to show off her toned frame.

She boosted her height in a pair of chic silver heels and added a glittering touch to the look by accessorising with a silver bracelet and dangling earrings.

The model swept her brunette locks back into a sleek ponytail and she wore a light palette of make-up to highlight her natural beauty.

Tina made a statement on the red carpet with her quirky floor-length dress, that featured a puffy light-purple top and a mermaid tail skirt in navy blue.

Her ensemble featured a hood that she wore over her head and it also had a large red sash at the front which she had tied into a bow.

The wife of Vincent Cassel had slicked back her brunette locks into a dramatic bun, and she opted to forgo wearing any jewellery so all attention remained on her outfit.

The socialite’s ensemble was cinched in at the waist with a thin pink belt, and she complemented the ensemble by carrying a silver clutch bag.
