The starlets have descended upon Cannes for the 63rd annual film festival. As we blogged yesterday, Cate Blanchett made a stunning appearance on the red carpet for the world premiere of her latest flick, Robin Hood. For the photo-call earlier in the day, the Aussie actress went for the Giorgio Armani Prive pink suit as was predicted. But for the night event, Cate took it up a notch with a black and silver Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2010 gown, which featured an eagle motif and tulle underlay.

Big gowns have been popular for the first few days of Cannes. Kate Beckinsale also chose a show-stopper, click on to see what she wore...

 Robin Hood Premiere - 63rd Cannes Film Festival

For her stint on the red carpet, Kate didn't do things by halves. She owned her moment at the premiere of Robin Hood by wearing a design by fellow brits, Marchesa. Almost standing up Blanchett, Kate donned a lavender sparkly draped gown, featuring a voluminous tulle layered skirt. She finished off her look by sporting an Hepburn-style bouffant and stunning drop earrings. Thumbs up from us, Kate!
