She’s one of many movie stars in France at the moment for the Cannes Film Festival and Aussie actress Cate Blanchett has well and truly upped the fashion ante.

Cate, who has appeared in an array of Hollywood blockbusters throughout her career, stole the show at the event in a truly eye-catching number.

The 50-year-old star wowed in a chic suit-style dress which accentuated the actress’ figure thanks to a red big bow, which nipped her in at the waist, and a saucy front split.

Cate paired the standout outfit with a sophisticated pair of black stiletto heels and completed the look with subtle smoky eye make-up, wearing her cropped blonde locks in sleek waves.

The star was in attendance for the screening of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, an adventure-comedy film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Tony Grisoni, loosely based on the novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.

Meanwhile, earlier in the week, Dame Helen Mirren debuted a striking new look, showing off her freshly dyed pink hair, at the Cannes Film Festival.

The 73-year-old star sported a much shorter cropped do than usual at the prestigious event on Saturday and swapped her usual blonde tones for a new soft pink hair colour.

Mirren looked spectacular as she posed on the red carpet at the premiere of French movie Les Plus Belles Annees D’Une Vie (The Best Years of a Life), wearing a couture Elie Saab gown which complimented her new hair perfectly with its blush and gold tones.

The stunning evening gown was covered in intricate sequins and featured a long train and asymmetrical neckline, and The Queen actress accessorised the beautiful outfit with a simple pair of diamond drop earrings and matched her make-up to her bubblegum pink hair, with blush-coloured eyeshadow and a soft pink lip.
