Alexa Chung wowed in a skimpy black dress as she arrived at the 77th annual Cannes Film Festival premiere of Horizon: An American Saga on Sunday, weeks after a rumoured engagement to its leading lady’s ex-boyfriend. 

The model, 40, showcased her incredible figure in the racy black number that came with a plunging neckline as she made her way across the Croisette. 

Alexa accessorized tastefully with a pair of dark shades and flashed a beaming smile as she made her latest red carpet appearance. 

She complemented the overall look with a simple black-and-white bracelet on her right wrist and finished it off with a simple pair of high-heeled sandals. 

In terms of make up, the former MTV star kept thigs natural with only a hint of blusher and let her tousled dark locks hang neatly around her shoulders.

In further snaps, the TV presenter was seen striking a sultry pose as she flipped her dark hair after removing her shades.

Other stars to grace the red carpet included the likes of Julianne Moore, who was effortlessly elegant in a fitted green dress which featured an alluring ruffled neck detail.

The film –  which stars Kevin Costner and Sienna Miller – chronicles a multi-faceted, 15-year span of pre-and post-Civil War expansion and settlement of the American west.  

Alexa was attending the event after a reported engagement to boyfriend Tom Sturridge, Miller’s former partner and the father of her young daughter Marlowe, also present on Sunday. 

The model first sparked engagement rumours with the actor, 38, back in June, with the couple seen wearing matching rings in October.

Now, the couple are said to be ‘over the moon’ and are planning a ‘classy’ wedding ceremony in summer.

A source told The Sun: ‘Alexa has confirmed to her friends that she is indeed engaged to Tom and she is over the moon.

‘She is in a great place and seems completely head over heels for him. They’re a great match.’

Cannes is the world’s biggest film festival, first conceived in 1939 as an alternative to the then-fascist-influenced Venice Film Festival.

It has been held annually since 1946 except in 1948 and 1950, when it was cancelled due to lack of funds.

The festival is known for its carefully selected programme of films that have gone on to Oscar glory or launched the careers of directors like Quentin Tarantino.

Cannes’ top prize is the Palme d’Or, or Golden Palm, whose past winners include Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, Pulp Fiction, The Pianist and Parasite.

The Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off on Tuesday night as celebrities walked the red carpet into the plush Grand Theatre Lumiere to honour Hollywood actor Meryl Streep before settling in to watch this year’s opening film, The Second Act..   

Artists from around the world who have made a name for themselves in their respective field are picked to sit on the jury, with one member designated as jury president.

This year’s jury president, U.S. director Greta Gerwig, comes to Cannes after the massive success last summer of Barbie.

She is the first female U.S. director to serve as jury president, taking the baton from the head of the 2023 jury, Triangle of Sadness director and two-time Palme d’Or winner, Ruben Ostlund of Sweden.
