The 66th Cannes Film Festival took place last month from the 15th to 26th May and was hosted by French actress Audrey Tatou.
The jury was headed by Steven Spielberg and included Nicole Kidman and Ang Lee.
The prestigious Palme d'Or was awarded to the French film , Blue Is The Warmest Color, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche. For the first time ever in the competition, the Jury also decided to award the Palme d'Or to the two actresses who star in the film, Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux.
The movie has shocked some critics with its graphic and controversial sex-scenes. The film tells the story of a lesbian relationship between a 15 year old girl and an older woman.
Steven Spielberg described the film as a work of art and beauty and praised the director for his sensitive and creative handling of his actors as well as saying that he and the rest of the jury were spell bound.
Watch a clip of Blue Is The Warmest Color Here:
Eva Longoria: not 100% sure why she was there but she did make and extreme amount of appearances in various see-through dresses, which kept the photographers busy.
Sharon Stone: valid reason to be there! Sharon made about five Cavalli dress changes over the week end; great advertisement from the stunning ageless lady
Kylie Minogue: not an actress as such but stunning as always!
This, my friends, is Elina Lenina. No one knows who she is, what she does or why she's there but she surely got the paps attention! the only way she could have topped this (hehe) is to tweet a pic of her hair the following morning
Paris Hilton: Again not sure of the reason for her presence but that is one hella cool dress!
Heidi Klum: in Versace. After having had 6 or 7 kids. Ugh.
Frieda Pinto: An actress!! ( Slumdog Millionaire, Planet of the apes)
Jessica Chastain: another actress! ( The Help, Mama)
Lara Lieto: er, kissed Adrian Broody
