Believe it or not, but these photos are already old as the Cannes Film Festival steamrolls ahead because the ladies pictured in this set have already attended another big event held today—the annual amfAR Gala, which is typically packed with every beautiful model within 100 miles of Cannes. Let’s not forget that it’s already 10:40PM (as of this writing in So. Cal where it’s 1:40PM).
The L’Oreal party was held last night to celebrate the cosmetic brand’s 20th anniversary of its relationship with the famous film festival in the always-fashionable French Riviera. There were a long list of models in attendance, but we saved a few bucks at the photo agency and decided to showcase only our favorites (i.e. Doutzen, Irina & Bianca Balti).
I think it’s safe to say that former S.I. Swimsuit cover model Irina Shayk looked amazing as she appeared at a number of events at the Cannes Film Festival over the past few days. As most of you know, the 31-year-old Russian model, who has been in a relationship with actor Bradley Cooper, recently gave birth to her first child a little over a month ago on March 21.
By the looks of her various appearances on the red carpet in Cannes, I think it’s safe to say that Irina is pretty much back in tip-top shape! Irina’s rapid recovery shouldn’t come as a total surprise considering she’s good friends with fellow model Doutzen Kroes, who, believe it not, has popped out two kids of her own over the past few years.
Along with a long list of other models currently catwalking around the streets of Cannes, Sara Sampaio is also in attendance to spice things up at various events during the Cannes Film Festival. The beautiful 25-year-old Portuguese model wore a see-thru lace dress to the red carpet premiere for the upcoming horror film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” which is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and stars Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman.
The film is competing for the Palme d’Or in the main section at the film festival. For all you horror fans, look for the movie in theaters on November 3, 2017. In the meantime, check out the film’s creepy trailer below:

Actress Elle Fanning gave the army of photos from around the globe exactly what they wanted as she catwalked down the famous Cannes Film Festival red carpet at the premiere for her latest film ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’. The film, which is directed by John Cameron Mitchell and based on the book by Neil Gaiman, also stars Alex Sharp, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Matt Lucas. This will sound a little weird, but according to its Wiki entry, the film is a “British-American science fiction romantic-comedy.” Interesting.
Believe it or not, but they actually made a movie about Emojis! I guess it was only a matter of time until it happened, so this shouldn’t come as a total shock.
“The Emoji Movie” is a 3D animated feature with a star-studded cast of voices from A-list names including T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, James Corden, Patrick Stewart, Maya Rudolph, and Sofia Vergara. The film screened at the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival earlier today and will hit theaters later this summer on July 28. For those of you who are somewhat curious, check the trailer below:
We rarely see Zoe Salanda out & about with Italian artist husband Marco Perego, but the couple were all smiles as they attended the premiere of Zoe’s latest film ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’, which officially hits theaters on May 5, 2017. The couple left their twin two-year-old boys with the nannies and decided to enjoy the premiere as a date night. Even though Marco Perego decided to take take Zoe’s last name following their nuptials, he definitely gets a sweet deal from an A-list Hollywood lifestyle standpoint!
Here are a few more favorites from the big “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” premiere held last night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. A big shout-out to Elodie Yung and Allison Holker for rocking the see-thru dresses on the red carpet because we seldom see celebs taking risks on the red carpet these days! Anyway, here’s more about the film, followed by the trailer:
Set two-to-three months after the first film, the Guardians of the Galaxy travel throughout the cosmos and struggle to keep their new-found family together, while helping Peter Quill learn more about his true parentage and stopping an enemy who threatens to destroy the entire galaxy.[Source]

We should mention that Katherine Heigl is also in the film, but we chose instead to highlight Rosario Dawson’s appearance on the red carpet. It shouldn’t come as a complete surprise that the film’s producers hired Katherine Heigl to play the role of a vindictive ex-wife looking to ruin the life of her ex-husband and his new wife. It’s nice to see that she’s cashing in on the fact that everyone hates her.
Here’s more about the film’s plot:
Tessa Connover (Katherine Heigl) is barely coping with the end of her marriage when her ex-husband, David, becomes happily engaged to Julia (Rosario Dawson). Trying to settle into her new role as a wife and a stepmother, Julia believes she has finally met the man of her dreams, the man who can help her put her own troubled past behind her. Tessa’s jealousy takes a pathological turn, and she will stop at nothing to turn Julia’s dream into the ultimate nightmare. Source
“Smurfs: The Lost Village” is a reboot film unrelated to Sony’s previous effort that featured Katy Perry as Smurfette. Singer Demi Lovato scooped up the lead role as Smurfette in the reboot, which hits theaters this weekend. Ariel Winter, on the other hand, will do the voice for Smurf Lily, who is described as “a gentle girl Smurf” and 23-year-old singer Meghan Trainor lends her voice for Smurf Melody.
Here’s a brief plot summary for all you “Smurfs” fans:
In Smurf Village, the Smurfs live peacefully among themselves. Their leader is the wise and elderly, if a bit overprotective Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin). Most of the Smurfs include the klutsy and slow-witted Clumsy Smurf (Jack McBrayer), the intellegent and eccentric Brainy Smurf (Danny Pudi), the strong and gutsy Hefty Smurf (Joe Manganiello) and the beautiful Smurfette (Demi Lovato), who feels out of place in Smurf Village as the only girl. Smurfette was created by the villainous wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) but was redeemed by Papa Smurf and became part of the village. Gargamel makes it his mission to capture the Smurfs, steal all of their essence, and become the most powerful wizard in the world. Source
As we mentioned yesterday, film industry trade show CinemaCon is in its final day at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. It was a star-studded affair with A-list names showing up to represent their upcoming blockbusters for various production houses. You can visit the event’s official website for plenty more photos.
These particular photos were snapped at an event held by Hollywood production and distribution house Focus Features. Charlize Theron and Naomi Watts were looking great, while Kirsten Dunst not so much.
