The Cannes Film Festival opened today and we are in for eleven days of French Riviera glamour. Today’s best-dressed spot goes to Uma Thurman, a member of this year’s jury, and her feathered Versace stunner. The strapless bodice with curving seams, paired with a thigh-high slit was pure Versace, which means it was straight-up sexy and the spotless hue stood out on a red carpet that featured sequins, lace and colour.

White has been a statement-maker on red carpets of late–witness Emma Roberts, Hilary Rhoda and Florence Welch on the Met Gala red carpet. The Versace dress was Thurman’s second appearance in white today–she appeared earlier in a knee-length embroidered frock from Dolce & Gabbana’s snowy spring collection. Rachel McAdams also looked chic at today’s photo call for Midnight in Paris wearing a couture dress from Maxime Simoens that had flowers at the hips and shoulders.
