It has been a hot bed of fashion, film and fun at the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival. 

And Saturday night was no exception as the latest in a string of super glam events was the 120 Beats per Minute premiere at the Palais des Festivals, a movie detailing the Eighties and Nineties AIDs epidemic, where Kendall Jenner did everything to ensure all eyes were on her as she billowed in a breathtaking ensemble with a vast train.

The 21-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star put on a show-stopping display in her gown which boasted an retro-inspired mini dress on top before the back flowed into an impressive train as she joined other stars who appeared to borrow from days gone by in their looks – possibly in a nod to the film’s vintage setting.

Keen to ensure all eyes were on her, the reality star turned catwalk queen, who was styled by Marni Senofonte, dazzled in the gown from Giambattista Valli Spring 2017 Couture – sure to turn every head in the venue. 

While the back of the dress was almost bridal in detailing, the front was a volumunious spectacular complete with a huge one-shoulder detailing, a waist-accentuating tie and a wrapped mini with a perilously high hemline. 

Kendall’s red carpet appearances throughout the first few days of Cannes have been rare, alluding to the fact she was saving the best with her 120 Beats Per Minute look.

Combining both a gown and sexy mini, the dress was perfect for illustrating high fashion credentials atop the stunning figure which has gained her positions on the world’s top runways.

While the cut of the gown was garish and outlandish, the print was wholly more delicate and girly as the entirety of the dress was littered with delicate floral designs.

Her beauty regimen was flawless, as she wore dewy make-up while her raven tresses were scraped into a high bun with a ponytail falling from the back – in a spiky, quirky look.

She injected a further touch of dazzle to the already sensational form with the addition of drooling diamonds from Chopard – the brand she partied into the wee hours with just hours before.  

While red carpets are typically cluttered with stars smouldering in front of the press, Kendall ensured she kept the space clear with the power of her staggering train which naturally turned heads all over.  

Also at the premiere was stunning Kristen Stewart. The 27-year-old looked sensational in a Chanel Resort 2018 ensemble, no doubt because she is a muse for the fashion giant, while also sporting her now-trademark buzzcut for an edgy display at the show.

Kristen has long been associated with Cannes, after taking centre stage at last year’s event while promoting Woody Allen’s Cafe Society.

The stunning star yet again pulled it out of the sartorial bag on Saturday as she did her very own take on classic Chanel tweed – although far from slipping into the chic suit ensembles of the brand, she was instead going for a youthful pinafore style gown.

Flashing a hint of her hard-earned abs, she sported a pink bandeau top underneath a grey dress which featured straps attaching the base in a pinafore styling. 

She was also flaunting her no fuss hair do, complete with short choppy bleached tresses while she contrasted the blonde locks against her smokey eye.

Flying the flag for the veterans of Hollywood glamour was Pamela Anderson who looked nearly unrecognisable as she scraped her hair into an extraordinarily tight style which fully displayed her youthful good looks. 

She appeared to borrow from the Eighties in style as her gown featured huge ruched sleeves while the plunging top made the most of her famously eye-popping assets before nipping in at her tiny waist.

Petra Nemcova, who was wearing Chopard jewels, dazzled in a blue satin gown by Cristina Ottaviano, which made the most of her frame with an off the shoulder styling while her hair was pulled to one side and worked into sleek curls.

Flying the flag for the UK was Tallia Storm, who brought a touch of icy glamour to the south of France in a bejewelled powder blue dress. The Scottish singer, 18, appeared at the premier in the gauzy gown, which billowed from her waist in layers. 

Tallia went braless on the red carpet in the transparent gown, covering her modesty in powder blue petals and stones styled to look like delicate branches. The beautiful floral motif also fell down the singer’s sleeves, adding a fairytale feel to her look. 

The tulle met Tallia’s encrusted bodice in a frayed triangle, which peeped above a blue ribbon around her waist.  The ribbon was tied in a bow at the back of her dress, which also featured more stone detailling. Tallia’s black Yves Saint Laurent heels also turned the eye with their distinctive stiletto. 

The patent leather shoes were propped up with the fashion house’s stylised initials, which interlinked to provide support. The singer’s skirt fell unevenly, with a top layer of tulle hanging further over each side of the gown.

Sara Sampaio put on a dazzling display in a show-stopping jumpsuit. The Victoria’s Secret model, 25, looked simply sensational in her backless embellished number as she turned out for the premiere of movie 120 Beats Per Minute. 

Sara’s intricate number made sure to turn heads as she arrived for the screening, thanks to its unusual netted feature around its neckline. 

The sheer ruffle framed the Portuguese model’s decolletage and sculpted shoulders, while the rest of the form-fitting Armani Privé design sheathed her model figure.

It drew attention to her lengthy pins that Sara emphasised with a pair of pointed white court heels on her feet and the starlet chose to go braless underneath her stunning attire to make the most of her jumpsuit’s dainty barley-there back.

Going for over the top glam was Thai actress Araya A. Hargate, who was determined to put on a show-stopping display in a hot pink gown with a bow style top and vast frothy frilled skirt. 

Appearing as though she was headed to an Eighties prom, she made the most of her appearance on the red carpet, with the magenta tone of her dress clashing with the crimson coloured floor. 

In a potential mishap, Indian actress Aishwarya Rai walked just behind her in a gown which was remarkably similar – complete with a tight bodice, crimson body and acres of chiffon frills at the base.

The movie the stars were out to see, 120 Beats per Minute, known in French as 120 battements par minute, is a French drama directed by Robin Campillo. The movie’s presence at Cannes is as a competitor at the Palme d’Or in the main competition section of the Festival, as well as for the Queer Palm for LGBT-related films.

The story, set in the early Nineties, tells the tale of a group of HIV/AIDS activists who were part of the Paris sector of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, also known as ACT UP. 

During the first screening on Saturday Robin spoke through his connection to the movie: ‘I actually lived through this time. I was an ACT UP militant in the Nineties. I’ve dressed up a boyfriend on his death,’.
