Bella Hadid knows how to command a red carpet.
The 19-year-old model, who landed dozens of magazine covers in the last year and walked for everyone from Chanel to Tommy Hilfiger, is stepping out from her sister Gigi's supermodel shadow.
Bella followed in Gigi's fashion footsteps with her catwalk career and two of the most successful models in recent years - but at the Cannes Film Festival, it was all about Bella.
The beautiful brunette, who is dating rapper The Weeknd, stole the show in a red silk gown with a sky high slit by Alexandre Vauthier at the premiere of The Unknown Girl on Wednesday night.
And now she's one of the most talked about stars at the film festival.
Bella, who was training to compete in equestrian show-jumping at Rio 2016 before she was diagnosed with Lyme disease, also debuted a new fringe courtesy of superstar hair stylist Jen Atkin.
Earlier this year, she spoke about the importance of distinguishing herself from her sister when it comes to modelling gigs, including dying her naturally blonde hair.
"I just have a darker personality. And my sister being blonde and me being brunette, it's a good separation," she told GQ. "I put a blonde wig on and think it would be fun to go back, but I'm happy with my hair.
"Blondes are so angelic. My sister can get away with anything."
