Nicole Kidman sparkles in midnight blue

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman kicked off the 66th International Cannes Film Festival in sensational style yesterday, arriving in a sequinned shift dress for her duties as a jury member.

The Australian actress headed to the South of France to attend a photocall in her role as a juror yesterday.

Despite not being a red carpet affair, Nicole made sure to turn heads in a midnight blue shift dress that was adorned with glittering sequins.

She completed her show-stopping look with wrap-around stilettos and a simple clutch.

Nicole oozed Hollywood glamour in the beauty stakes, and teamed sultry red lips with poker-straight locks that were swept into a side parting.

The red-headed beauty smiled and posed for waiting photographers in the gorgeous outfit as she arrived ahead of the 11-day event.

The annual film festival will certainly see plenty of style sensations on the red carpet when it kicks off today, and Nicole's role as a member of the eight-person Cannes International Film Festival panel will certainly keep her at the forefront.

The Hollywood actress, director Ang Lee and Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz will all join Steven Spielberg - who was named jury president earlier this year.

Other members announced for the coveted jury are Vidya Balan, Naomi Kawase, Lynne Ramsay, Daniel Auteuil and Cristian Mungiu.

The festival runs between May 15 and 26 this year and will see legendary director Spielberg and the rest of the jury award the prestigious Palme d'Or best film prize.
