Just when we thought we saw all the high fashion we could handle from our favorite celebrities this year during the 2014 Met Gala, the International Cannes Film Festival pulls us back in to the world of couture.

On day one of the event, which celebrates film from around the world, the ladies pulled out all the stops. Take a look at Blake Lively‘s gorgeous red Gucci Première dress — not only did it flow as the starlet walked down the red carpet, but it also had this incredibly high slit that upped the sex appeal. And say what you want about Jane Fonda, that woman looked like a goddess also walking in a red dress, but by designer Elie Saab.

Nicole Kidman’s Armani Privé purple gown looked a little like armor, but her makeup and hair were flawless. Kendall Jenner’s Chanel dress wasn’t our favorite, but we’ve been spoiled by this girl, especially after the Met Gala when she wowed everyone in TopShop. And Karlie Kloss, well, her lace Valentino dress was questionable. But hey, they’re in France, now’s the time to take chances and push limits.

We’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of the week will bring. Scroll through our slideshow below to see the outfits and check back with us every day as we review more fashion the International Cannes Film Festival. Vive la France!
