The amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala is always a celebrity fashion smorgasbord, and this year, we couldn’t take our eyes off of Janet Jackson. The singer wore a simple, elegant colour-blocked look from Haider Ackermann. She looks stunning (and the smile on her face tells us she knows it) and her hair defies gravity in the best way.

This is the second Ackermann look we’ve seen at Cannes. The other was sported by Tilda Swinton at last week’s premiere of We Need To Talk About Kevin. Though we hate to pit two such formidable women (and looks) against each other, if pressed, we’d give the edge to Jackson, if only because this is such a red carpet surprise. Now excuse us while we go listen to Rhythm Nation.
