The 70th Cannes Film Festival kick-started yesterday (May 17).

The Cannes Film Festival is a world-class event premiering movies from around the globe; but at times it seems the red carpet fashion has overshadowed the films themselves.

Hadid posted a picture of the three of them together on her Instagram page to her 12.9 million followers, kneeling on the deck of what appears to be a luxury liner.

Elsewhere on the red carpet, Jessica Chastain arrived looking for all the world like she'd arrived in a time machine from the 1950s in a black velvet embroidered strapless dress and her hair and make up classic old school Hollywood glamour.

Czech supermodel Petra Nemcova wore the most elegant yet risque white number on the red carpet.

Hadid - whose younger sister Gigi Hadid is a model - also opened up about suffering from sleepless nights over fears that her career will come to an abrupt end.

Warriors favoured over LeBron and Cavaliers in the Finals
But perhaps the player with the most legacy juice on the line is the newcomer to the already developed Cavs-Warriors rivalry. They got a big scare in late February when Durant had a left knee injury, but he's back and the Warriors have rolled since.

Had he been given the chance, West said he would have taken the best player available, which is always his strategy. LEBRON JAMES: Now, when you're growing up and you're seeing Michael Jordan , you - it's nearly like a god.

Dead Men Tell No Tales Review
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all new Pirates movie. This time around he's being pursued by Captain Armando Salazar, a ghost from Captain Jack's past.

Sara Sampaio looked ravishing in red in this Zuhair Murad ball gown.

Bella's gown was a custom creation by French designer Alexandre Vauthier. She was there with her father, real estate developer Mohamed Hadid.

Actor Uma Thurman, jury president for Un Certain Regard, a section of the Cannes Film Festival's official selection, went for a pastel pink Atelier Versace Fall 2016 gown.

The Maleficent star was in attendance on the night to promote her new film The Beguiled.

The festival wraps up on May 28th so we can expect plenty more radiant red carpet style moments until then.

Jessica Chastain: Typically flawless, Chastain looks ideal from the neck up, but the heavily embroidered bodice of this Alexander McQueen dress is too busy and unflattering, even on her tiny frame. She continues to experiment, and she probably will, until she gets it right with thigh-high slit dresses.
