Eva Green steals the show in a stunning sequinned gown at the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony

Eva Green looked glamorous in a dark silver sequinned dress at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday.

The former Bond Girl, 43, put on a busty display in the long-sleeved dress which pooled at her feet.

She accessorised with a gorgeous pair of silver chandelier earrings with yellow stones and swept her raven tresses into a high ponytail.

Eva was joined by the likes of Elle Fanning and Demi Moore at the Closing Ceremony of the 77th annual film awards. 

The Festival, previewing new films of all genres and from all countries, kicked off on May 14 – and Eva was among the first to arrive.

Eva stunned in large black sunglasses and a brown trench coat as she arrived in Cannes on May 13.

She wore a black top and black trousers under the coat and sported a stylish two-in-one silver ring.

Eva was a member of this year’s jury – a group of filmmakers and actors who hold sole responsibility for choosing which films will receive an award. 

The jury was headed by director Greta Gerwig whose 2023 film Barbie is the highest-grossing film directed by a woman.

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.

Jane Campion became the first female director to win in 1993 with The Piano, followed by a nearly three-decade gap until Julia Ducournau received the award for Titane in 2021.

Justine Triet became only the third female director to take the prize last year with Anatomy of a Fall.

Also at Cannes Film Festival is the honorary Palme d’Or, which is awarded in recognition of notable bodies of work, with past recipients including Harrison Ford, Jane Fonda and Clint Eastwood.

There are two honorary winners this year: George Lucas of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ fame, and Japanese animation legend Studio Ghibli, the first group to receive the prize.

On Friday, Star Wars creator and director George Lucas received a well-deserved Honorary Palme d’Or.

The  award is given to directors or actors who had achieved a notable body of work but who had never won a competitive Palme d’Or.

A Palme d’Or is the highest prize awarded at the Festival and is considered one of the film industry’s most prestigious awards. 

Also receiving a Palme D’Or this Cannes was Meryl Streep and Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli.
