And we're off! It's the first night of the total glamour-fest that is Cannes Film Festival and as predicted, the stars have brought their style A-game to the red-carpet.

From Naomie Harris in a statement striped Gucci gown, to Emily Ratajkowski debuting a cropped hair do for the night whilst draped in Bulgari jewels, Cannes is certainly living up to its stylish reputation.

One of our favourite looks of the night is Julianne Moore in this beautiful Givenchy Couture gown. Julianne is one of our all time red-carpet style icons - she just always seems to get it right!

We love the ornate embossment on Julianne's bodice not to mention the high neck and red leaf-shaped fluttering embellishment. The subtle yet oh so luxe looking feathers cascading down the skirt of Julianne's gown put the finishing touches to this beautiful design.

Of course, there's nothing quite like this on the high-street but we can offer you an array of rather delightful high-necked evening gowns below!
