The opening film of the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival began in the midst of controversy and glitzy stars. Controversy because the Monaco Royals jetted off from the French Riviera as the cast of the film touched down. Prince Albert has lambasted Grace of Monaco for inaccurately portraying his late mother Princess Grace.
What's more, prior to the premiere, the film was screened for the press and was met with some of the worst reviews for a Cannes opener.
That didn't seem to have dampened any spirits on the red carpet.
Nicole Kidman channeled Grace Kelly's 'diamond & ice' look in a gorgeous blue strapless Armani Prive.
Also spotted on the red carpet were Zoe Saldana, Mallika Sherawat, Paz Vega, Uday Chopra, and a leggy Blake Lively among others.
