Kate, Cate and Eva Pump Up the Volume For Cannes's First Night!

The Cannes Film Festival had its first red carpet this evening, with celebrities heading out for the gala premiere of Robin Hood and an official dinner afterwards. The movie's stars, Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe, were together again following their photo call earlier in the day. Cate turned heads in her voluminous Alexander McQueen gown, while Russell stayed close to his wife Danielle Spencer. Member of the jury Kate Beckinsale also decided to go big with her pouffy Marchesa.

Eva Longoria changed out of her own casual wear from the afternoon to hit the carpet with fellow L'Oreal model Aishwarya Rai. Salma Hayek was in a maroon Gucci number with her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, and Helen Mirren stepped out in demure black to join in on the fun. Other jurors like Tim Burton and Gael Garcia Bernal, meanwhile, kept an eye on things in their tuxes. This is just the beginning of the star-studded French festival, so make sure to stay tuned for more updates as they happen!
