Kylie Minogue and Sharon Stone stun at Cannes red carpet

The 75th annual Cannes Film Festival has seen stars embrace the most glamorous of looks that could rival those spotted at the 2022 Met Gala - and it’s safe to say that Kylie Minogue and Sharon Stone’s gowns were among the highlights.

Appearing for the screening of Elvis on Wednesday, the Neighbours alum and Aussie icon styled a stunning Versace corset dress featuring sheer panelling and a side split, accessorised with a jade-embedded Bulgari necklace.

Minogue took to Instagram with clips from the night and photos, including a close-up shot of her Bulgari jewellery.

“Thank you @Versace & @Bulgari for the GLAM this evening,” she captioned a post from the night, adding that she “LOVED” Elvis and that its director, Baz Luhrmann, was “THE BEST”.

Meanwhile, Sharon Stone walked the red carpet in a tightly-fitted red gown with intricate beading across the neckline and along the straps, completing the look with a bedazzled red handbag and a pair of Elvis’ signature aviator sunglasses.

It wasn’t the only time Stone impressed the crowd with her look during the festival, having appeared in a heavily-embellished blue-and-white gown with a peplum skirt which her two accompanying male models removed to reveal a full-length body con dress at Sunday’s screening of Forever Young (Les Amandiers).

The next day, the 64-year-old star was throwing up peace signs in another form-hugging gown - this time emerald green and bedazzled - ahead of the screening of Crimes of the Future, where she was photographed with her god-daughter Helena Gatsby.

The 20-year-old later took to Instagram with photos of the pair, describing Stone as her hero and role model.

“My hero forever, so honoured to be next to my role model. I love you and cherish you,” she captioned the post.

Both Minogue and Stone received floods of praise for their looks, with fans describing them as stunning and “elegance personified”.

“Absolute perfection Kylie!!” Donatella Versace, the fashion designer and sister of Versace’s founder, said of Minogue’s outfit.

“A real diva 💚💚💚 loving this 30s vibe,” Lucio Di Rosa, the head of worldwide celebrities relations at Dolce & Gabbana, commented on a photo of Stone’s green gown.

“Good Lord. You must teach me your ways!” Will & Grace star Debra Messing commented on Stone’s blue-and-white look.
