Uma Thurman stole the show at the closing ceremony of the 66th Cannes Film Festival wearing a classic Hollywood gown. The Kill Bill star and her partner Arpad Busson sealed the last night of one of the most glamorous film festivals in the world with a tender kiss.
The couple, who welcomed their first baby together last July, looked the picture of love as they stood on the red carpet laughing and gazing into one another”s eyes, clinching the moment with a romantic embrace.
Looking sensational in a flowing floor-length custom-made Atelier Versace gown with corset detail, the star shone as she glided into the last screening of the festival – thriller Zulu – and closing ceremony at the Palais des Festivals on Sunday.
With her hair slicked back into a low bun at the nape of her neck to set off her drop diamond earrings and minimal make-up, the 43-year-old made sure all eyes were on her as she ascended the stairs accompanied by her financier beau Arpad.
Nicole Kidman, who was a jury member at the 12-day film festival, also went for floor-length glamour for the grand finale. She dazzled in a white custom-made Giorgio Armani gown with a v-neckline and gold Swarovski crystal bow detail sweeping across the bodice.
The Australian actress, 45, completed the look with her hair teased into a beautiful bun and Harry Winston jewels.
Argentine-born French actress Bérénice Bejo, who was clearly shocked when she won Best Actress in Cannes for her role in The Past, wore a sleeveless teal-coloured lace dress by Elie Saab. She teamed that with matching suede Christian Louboutin shoes and an embroidered Elie Saab clutch.
Winners at the world”s largest cinema showcase include French flick Blue Is the Warmest Colour by director Abdellatif Kechiche, which scooped the top prize and highly coveted Palme d”Or award.
Grand Prix (runner-up) went to Inside Llewyn by the Coen brothers while Japanese film Like Father, Like Son took the Jury Prize.
