Heidi Klum and her daughter Leni put on a show-stopping display as they graced the star-studded red carpet for the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala during the 77th Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

The model put on an extravagant display in a dusky pink tulle gown as she posed for snaps with her daughter, 18, before planting a sweet kiss on her cheek.

Showing off her incredible figure, Heidi posed up a storm in a beautiful pink gown which boasted a voluminous tulle skirt and a matching train.

The star posed up a storm with her daughter, who contrasted her mother by slipping into a daring sheer black gown with dramatic roses to define her trim waist.

It comes just hours after Heidi and Leni displayed their jaw-dropping physiques in skimpy bikinis as they lark around on a diving board at famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France.

Leni is the daughter of Vogue model Heidi and her businessman ex Flavio Briatore, 73.

Leni grew up in Los Angeles while Flavio was based in London so they did not see each other.

TMZ first reported in 2018 that Leni and Flavio had reconnected with the help of her parents. Now it seems as if they see each other now and then.

Also in attendance for the occasion was Bella Thorne, who flashed a glimpse of her underwear through her daring sheer silver gown.

The former Disney star showed off her eye-popping cleavage in the plunging dress with a sleek white top, that flowing into the semi-sheer silver skirt. 

Kelly Rowland brushed off her recent red carpet drama as she attended the glitzy gala, showing off her impressive abs in a sparkly green bralet and a matching skirt.

The Destiny’s Child star showed off her jaw-dropping figure in the diamante-studded bralet and shimmering skirt, after being filmed during a tense dispute with a security guard at Cannes earlier this week. 

Each year, the gala held in Cannes brings a slew of A-listers to the south of France in order to bring awareness and raise funds for the nonprofit.

Cannes is the world’s biggest film festival, first conceived in 1939 as an alternative to the then-fascist-influenced Venice Film Festival.

It has been held annually since 1946 except in 1948 and 1950, when it was cancelled due to lack of funds.

The festival is known for its carefully selected programme of films that have gone on to Oscar glory or launched the careers of directors like Quentin Tarantino.

Cannes’ top prize is the Palme d’Or, or Golden Palm, whose past winners include Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, Pulp Fiction, The Pianist and Parasite.

Jane Campion became the first female director to win in 1993 with The Piano, followed by a nearly three-decade gap until Julia Ducournau received the award for Titane in 2021.

Justine Triet became only the third female director to take the prize last year with Anatomy of a Fall.

There is also an honorary Palme d’Or, which is awarded in recognition of notable bodies of work, with past recipients including Harrison Ford, Jane Fonda and Clint Eastwood.

There are two honorary winners this year: George Lucas of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ fame, and Japanese animation legend Studio Ghibli, the first group to receive the prize.

Other awards include the Grand Prix, jury prize, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay and best short film.

The Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off on Tuesday night as celebrities walked the red carpet into the plush Grand Theatre Lumiere to honour Hollywood actor Meryl Streep before settling in to watch this year’s opening film, The Second Act.

Almost as prestigious as winning the Palme d’Or, the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize, is being on the jury that picks the winner.

Artists from around the world who have made a name for themselves in their respective field are picked to sit on the jury, with one member designated as jury president.

This year’s jury president, U.S. director Greta Gerwig, comes to Cannes after the massive success last summer of Barbie.

She is the first female U.S. director to serve as jury president, taking the baton from the head of the 2023 jury, Triangle of Sadness director and two-time Palme d’Or winner, Ruben Ostlund of Sweden.

The breakout star of Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Lily Gladstone returns to Cannes after becoming the first Native American woman to be nominated for an Oscar and winning a Golden Globe award for her performance.

One of the writers of the 2014 Palme d’Or-winning film Winter Sleep, Turkish photographer, actor and screenwriter Ebru Ceylan is a familiar face at the festival.

Her first short film, On the Edge, was selected to compete at Cannes in 1998, and she has co-written several movies that were in the main competition line-up, including About Dry Grasses, Three Monkeys and The Wild Pear Tree.

One of the select few women who have starred in a James Bond film, French actor Eva Green is also on the jury. 

She has an eclectic resume that includes Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, smaller-scale projects like Nocebo and TV series Penny Dreadful.

The 12-time winner of Spain’s prestigious Goya Awards, Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona is on the jury. 

He gained international recognition in 2007 with his first feature-length horror movie The Orphanage, produced by award-winning Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

His latest, the survival drama and Netflix hit ‘Society of the Snow,’ netted the director an Oscar nomination for best international feature film at this year’s ceremony.

After making a name with 2018’s Capernaum, which earned her Golden Globe, BAFTA and Oscar nominations, Lebanese director and screenwriter Nadine Labaki, who has long had ties to Cannes, adds jury member to her list of accolades.

One of Italy’s most famous actors with a parallel Hollywood career, Pierfrancesco Favino is no stranger to Cannes, having appeared in the competition films The Traitor, directed by Marco Bellocchio, and Mario Martone’s Nostalgia and now on the jury. 

Winner of the 2018 Palme d’Or for Shoplifters, which also nabbed an Oscar nomination, acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda returns as a main competition jury member after his film Monster won best screenplay at last year’s festival.

With a Cesar award – France’s equivalent of an Oscar – under his belt for The Intouchables as well as several successful blockbusters, French actor Omar Sy is a Cannes veteran.

The actor with parts in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Jurassic World starred in the opening film of the 2022 Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, Father & Soldier, and will now serve on the jury.
