It was dress feathers, long trains and a night to make fashion statements at the opening ceremony of the 68th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in France, yesterday. The stars turned up wearing the best dresses from some of the best designers in the world.

Lupita Nyong’o slayed  the red carpet in a bright green chiffon  Gucci gown embellished with crystal flowers complete with her ‘now’ signature headband look. We can say she more than made up for noticeable absence at the Met Gala.
