Pix: Who wore it best at Cannes?

Minissha Lamba debuts at the 64th Cannes Film Festival with a Guari and Nainika Karan gown in a very safe and predictable colour.

But there's no denying the fact that for a first-timer, Minissha has done us proud. Her fitted bodice and the flowing skirt do wonders to her frame. The petite actress accessorises with a box clutch and an upswept do.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Cannes veteran Aishwarya dons a spectacular Elli Saab gown and teams it up with a Jimmy Choo clutch.

Ash looks a little plump but the dress is great on her, what with it clinging to all the right places on her body. The actress wins extra points for picking out the 'right' dress.

Salma Hayek

Mexican beauty Salma Hayek looks striking in her Gucci Premiere embroidered gown.

The metallic grey strapless number is a great choice for a red carpet appearance. A Gucci satin clutch, side swept hair and silver fine jewels complete Salma's look.

Uma Thurman

Jury member Uma Thurman flaunts her best assets -- her endless legs in an angelic floor-length white silk Versace gown with a thigh-high slit. The actress reportedly got it specially made as it was difficult to find a proper size for her height.

She rocks the low cut strapless dress and accesorises with dangling emerald earrings from Chopard.

Rachel McAdams

The 32-year-old actress whose film Midnight In Paris screened on the first day, wore an intricate Marchesa gown and teams it with Bulgari jewellery to the opening ceremony.

Rachel accessories with gold Casadei pumps and hair styled the old Hollywood way with voluminous waves and a side parting.

Good job to the designers for the intricate work but the dress leaves a lot to be desired. While Rachel was seen struggliing with the dress a couple of times on the red carpet, it looks a little understated for the event of this scale.

And pointy pumps, really?

Amie Mullins

Actress Amie Mullins goes black for the ocassion with what looks like a golden flower accentuating the waist line.

Wish she'd compensated for the modest look with a plunging back ala Hilary Swank at the 2005 Oscars.

Fan Bing Bing

Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing goes traditional with her red gown that was embroidered with white cranes with a bow detail on the bodice.

This dramatic red gown was paired with a high bouffant, stunning Cartier jewels and a pearl embellished clutch.

Not really red carpet-y but eye-catching for sure.
