As the stars flock to South France for the two week Cannes Film Festival, all eyes were on Nicole Kidman this morning as she opened the most glamorous festival on Earth.

Nicole (46) who plays Princess Grace Kelly in the film Grace of Monaco, and her co-stars posed for a photocall for the film at the opening of the 67th Cannes Film Festival.

Wearing a mid-length white dress with slashed cap sleeves from Altuzarra’s Fall 2014 collection, Nicole posed gracefully in front of an army of photographers.

The busy Nicole - who has daughters Sunday Rose (4) and Faith (2) with husband Keith Urban, and adopted children Isabella (23) and Connor (19) with former husband Tom Cruise - accessorised her demure look with Elie Saab pumps with a small heel, loose curls and a pop of pink lipstick.

Despite her choice of footwear, she was still towering over her co-star Tim Roth.

Her co-star Paz Vega, always one of the most fashion forward celebrities at Cannes, wore a simple forest green Zuhair Murad dress with a plunging neckline and lace inserts. She added a fun finish with fuschia pink heels.

The film, which will be released in cinemas in the coming days, also stars Tim Roth, Frank Langella and Parker Posey. It was directed by Olivier Dahan.

Speculation surrounding the fate of the film grew after it's release date was delayed by its distributors amid rumoured unhappiness producer Harvey Weinstein and the director.


Days ago, members of the Monaco Royal Family, including Grace's Kelly Prince Albert II and Princess Caroline, slammed the film and accused its makers of hijacking their family history.

In a statement they said the film was completely fictional and did not accurately portray events involving their mother.

"The Prince's Palace would like to reiterate that this feature film cannot under any circumstances be classified as a biopic. The Princely Family does not in any way wish to be associated with this film which reflects no reality and regrets that Its history has been misappropriated for purely commercial purposes."
