Actress Sienna Miller kicked off the Cannes Film Festival in serious style.

The 33-year-old was joined by fellow jury member Jack Gyllenhaal (34) today in the first photocall of the prestigious film festival.

Sienna, who is enjoying a major career resurgence in the last 12 months, landed in Nice, France, yesterday alongside a host of A-listers ready to take over the South of France for the next 11 days.

She will be among the panel who decides what film walks away with the Palme D'Or on Sunday, May 24th, joined by director Guillermo del Toro, the Coen Brothers, Spanish actresses Rossy de Palma and Sophie Marceau, composer Rokia Traore and director Xavier Dolan.
