Cheryl brings thigh drama to Cannes red carpet
Cheryl Cole dazzled as she arrived at the Cannes Film Festival last night for the premiere of a controversial Algerian movie.
Cole (26) wore a floor-length white dress with cut-out panels and a thigh-high split as she made her way up the red carpet.
Also attending the screening of Rachid Bouchareb's film 'Outside The Law' were singer Beth Ditto and the festival's mistress of ceremony, Kristin Scott Thomas.
Singer and 'X Factor' judge Cole performed on Tuesday at a party at the opulent Hotel du Cap outside Cannes.
'Outside The Law', which attracted hundreds of protesters to the Croisette yesterday, focuses on the Algerian struggle for independence from France following World War Two.
It has sparked controversy over what some perceive to be anti-French sentiments, but Scott Thomas said as she arrived at the screening that the film's subject was an "important" one.
