Gwyneth sets the style standard on the red carpet in Cannes

20 MAY 2008
With her latest blockbuster Iron Man premiering all around the world, Gwyneth Paltrow has been reigning as queen of the red carpets recently.

And on Monday night the 35-year-old beauty continued to earn her title as dressed in a midnight blue gown from Chanel's Resort collection and accompanied by legendary designer Valentino, she attended the Cannes premiere of new drama flick Two Lovers - in which she stars opposite Joaquin Phoenix.

Hip hop billionaire, P Diddy - aka Sean Combs - also enjoyed the special screening, at which Gwyneth, her co-star Vinessa Shaw and director James Gray received a five-minute standing ovation.

Earlier the actress had slipped into an ice-white asymmetric Lanvin creation, complete with a striking pair of gladiator heels, to hit another red carpet at the Chopard Trophy Awards party.

Like stylish Gwyneth, Eva Herzigova also attended the bash in a white gown, detailed with a train and silver sequinned trim. Swept-up hair, drop earrings and red lipstick completed the glam look.

Channelling the train trend too was Christina Ricci, who showed off her enviable figure in a fitted Bottega black gown. Kristin Scott Thomas opted for a similar look in her royal blue Lanvin trapeze dress.

And loved-up couple Adrian Brody and Spanish actress Elsa Pataky caught up with The Untouchables star Andy Garcia before the talented actor picked up a pair of conga drums to provide further entertainment for the gathered guests.
