Jane Fonda arrived at the commencement of the highly-celebrated annual Cannes Film Festival wearing a black Elie Saab 2019 jumpsuit with a sequin-embroidered bodice, while Meryl Streep stole the spotlight in a timeless white custom Dior haute couture dress.

Heidi Klum, for her part, radiated glamor in a vibrant off-shoulder Saiid Kobeisy gown that came with a train that added some much-needed drama to her otherwise safe look.

Greta Gerwig, the president of the main competition, on the other hand, opted for a daring look, arriving fully dolled up in a burgundy sequin dress. With only a pair of earrings as her accessory, the Barbie filmmaker confidently carried herself alongside fellow jury member and actor Lily Gladstone, who also lit up the evening with her own share of sequin bling.
