The fun times in Cannes kicked off today, and there was no shortage of star power out on the red carpet for the opening premiere of Blindness. Co-stars Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal led the pack, and Eva Longoria and Mischa Barton were just a couple of the lovely ladies who lit up the red carpet in their brightly colored dresses. Natalie Portman looked adorable as always in her little purple number, representing the festival's jury along with Sean Penn. We can't wait to see all of our favorite stars strutting their stuff over the next week and a half — considering that the buzz started with Angelina confirming her twins, we can only imagine what other fun surprises are in store for us.

Lots more pics including Dennis Hopper, Petra Nemcova and all of the beautiful people you see above, so just read more.
