There are a lot of big film festivals which take place every year and while we enjoy almost all of the top festivals that take place, there is one festival that stands above them all, and that is the Cannes Film Festival. Earlier today we saw the opening of the Cannes Film Festival and there were plenty of Hollywood stars out in force, showing us what they have got on the red carpet.
When it comes to any red carpet event, there are always going to be plenty of stars who get it wrong, with plenty of other stars who get it spot on. One of the Hollywood beauties who got it right on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival opening was none other that the former Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively, who looked simply stunning as she posed for pictures from the many cameras.
Blake Lively took to the red carpet at the Palais des Festivals, where she wore a beautiful burgundy chiffon gown by Gucci, taking the spotlight away from everyone else in sight. Blake matched the dress with some stunning Lorraine Schwartz ruby drop earrings, as well a diamond flower bracelet and diamond vine bracelet, also by Lorraine Schwartz. As for her makeup, Lively went for the smoky eyes as well as a light pink lip color, offsetting the darkness of her gown with her lighter makeup.
As far as her acting career goes, Blake Lively can next be seen on the big screen, starring alongside Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman and Amanda Crew, in the movie The Age of Adaline, which is set to open sometime in 2015.
