Uma, known for her work on popular films such as Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction, has been named as the President in the Un Certain Regard arena - awarding a top prize and up to two other awards for show-stopping pieces of smaller budget, indie cinema.

As such a prestigious presence at the bash, the blonde beauty was keen to stand out as she slipped into her pink gown which truly made her mark as a Hollywood star. 

The Bardot-style gown tumbled off her slender shoulders while falling into a sweetheart neckline which boosted her eye-popping cleavage to perfection. 

Nipping in at her tiny waist, the stunning gown was perfect for displaying all her best bits while also boasting a perilous slash extending the length of her pins.

Show off your shoulders in a bardot gown like Uma

Uma Thurman got glam on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Gala. She wore a custom gown by Atelier Versace that was inspired by a look that was sent down the Fall 2016 couture runway.

The blush hued stunner went perfectly with Uma's skin tone and the off shoulder design highlighted her flawless decolletage.

A thigh high slit showed off the Pulp Fiction star's lengthy legs and she teamed her dress with a pair of metallic sandals and a statement necklace.

Of course you won't find this bespoke design online, but our alternative edit is chock full of styles in its likeness. Xscape makes a strikingly similar version or splurge on Monique Lhuillier's designer number at Neiman Marcus.

This year's festival runs from May 17-28, and includes 49 films in total, two of which are produced by streaming service Netflix - Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories.

However the decision to include them didn't go down well with film purists and since the cinematic event has announced that from 2018 only movies set to be released on the big screen will be considered for selection.

Headed up by Volver director Pedro Almodóvar, members of this year's judging panel from the Feature Films category include actors Jessica Chastain, Will Smith and Fan Bingbing, as well as directors Paolo Sorrention and Gabriel Yared, of The English Patient fame.

Making this year's event more exciting is the fact that it marked its 70th year of running, which luxury jeweller Chopard is commemorating by creating a diamond-set edition of the coveted Palme d'Or - the highest prize that can be won at Cannes. 

Aside from films however, A-list stars are set to attend a number of star-studded bashes throughout the festival including the AmFar Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc and Chopard's annual bash at Port Pierre Canto, co-hosted by Rihanna.
