Doutzen Kroes and Liya Kebede stunned at the opening ceremony of Cannes Film Festival yesterday.

The two models posed on the red carpet together, with 30-year-old Doutzen looking like an angel in a long, white dress. In contrast, Liya (37) went for a futuristic metallic number that showed off her never-ending legs.

Both fashion stars kept their hair fairly low key, with Doutzen opting for a loose updo and Liya letting her shoulder-length cut fall naturally.

It seems white was the shade of the occasion, with Bar Refaeli also picking the colour for her Cannes appearance. The 29-year-old wore a Grecian gown, which draped across her bust and fell beautifully into a floor-length skirt.

Karlie Kloss made a big statement on the red carpet, deciding to go for a very daring dress. The 22-year-old's gown featured a short piece of white material covering her chest, with the rest made up of a shimmering silver fabric. There were cut-outs by her torso and a thigh-high split showed off some leg.

Doutzen, Liya and Karlie are currently working together for L'Oréal Paris, with John Legend also featuring. The star recently posted a teaser of the project, showing all four of the celebrities looking gorgeous in black and white.
