Winnie Harlow cut a glamorous figure on Wednesday as she and her boyfriend Kyle Kuzma attended The Count of Monte Cristo premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. 

The supermodel, 29, looked incredible as she put on a very leggy display in a black floor-length gown. 

The chic ensemble boasted a lace corset bust, a sheer black train, and large burgundy flowers at the front. 

She added inches to her frame with a pair of black strappy stiletto heels and further accessorised the look with a silver diamond necklace and drop earrings to match. 

The fashion model styled her brunette locks in voluminous waves for the evening and adorned a flawless palette of makeup.

The Count of Monte Cristo is an adaptation of the Alexander Dumas tale by the same name which follows the story of a young man falsely imprisoned by his jealous ‘friend’.

Dantes, a sailor, is falsely accused of treason by his best friend Fernand, who wants Dantes’ girlfriend Mercedes for himself. 

Dantes is imprisoned on the island prison of Chateau d’If for 13 years, where he plots revenge against those who betrayed him. 

With help from another prisoner, he escapes the island and proceeds to transform himself into the wealthy Count of Monte Cristo as part of his plan to exact revenge. 

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.

There is also an 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.

Other awards include the Grand Prix, jury prize, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay and best short film.
