Juliette Binoche was elegant as ever at the Cannes Film Festival’s closing ceremony.

On the red carpet: Juliette Binoche, Jessica Chastain, Uma Thurman, Sofia Boutells

This Armani couture isn’t so different from the many Grecian-style sequinned gowns we’ve seen Cate Blanchett wear in her capacity as brand ambassador, but I still like it.

Jessica Chastain has not put a foot wrong on the red carpet this year, she is always one to watch. This gown is by Zuhair Murad.

The originally-navy design was remade in white to suit her colouring and the beading customised to flatter her waist.

Uma Thurman, a Cannes juror, has worn a lot of Versace over the years and most of her gowns have this silhouette: open V-neck, fitted waist, vertiginous left-leg split (sealed by sheer fabric here).

It suits her and she looks great in gold. I’m not as fond of the asymmetric fringe.

Sofia Boutella was dazzling in MiuMiu at the Madrid premiere of The Mummy. The actress is perhaps best known as the face of Nike Women and this rather strong look works well with her athletic figure.

A ring on every finger is a pet peeve of mine but the dress outshines them.
