Stunning Marion Cotillard dazzled in Cannes last night when she hit the red carpet in a white jumpsuit.

The Oscar winning French actress caused a moment of panic when she dropped one of her earrings.

But ever the embodiment of cool french, sophistication the 42-year-old calmly avoided a fall.

Cotillard, who styled her golden tresses in two elegant twists, and kept her makeup elegant with a rose lip and feline eyeliner flicks, laughed happily with fellow french actress Amelie Daure on the red carpet.

Marion looked stunning in her bardot jumpsuit which was tied at the waist with a large black sash - showing off her slender waist.

Yesterday, the actress joined Cate Blanchett, Salma Hayek and Kristen Stewart in a silent protest on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

82 actresses, female producers and directors marched arm in arm in the unprecedented protest to demand equal pay and an end to sexual harassment.

Organised by gender equality movement 50/50 by 2020, Ava DuVernay, Jane Fonda, and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins were among the group that walked in silence along the red carpet before stopping halfway up the steps of the entrance to the Palais des Festivals.
