Eva and Abbie battle it out to be Cannes' bright star
As the film’s star, it was Cornish’s moment to shine, and she didn’t disappoint, in a cascading Toni Maticevski asymmetric lilac grown, and Jimmy Choo satin sandals.
With her hair swept into an elegant up-do, the Australian actress was the picture of Hollywood glamour.
But she faced fierce competition in the petite form of Eva Longoria.
The Desperate Housewife wowed in a dramatic dove grey Atelier Versace spring ’09 gown, with sweeping train of ruffles and swirling soft print, which more than matched the drama of Cornish’s statement frock.
She may be a tiny actress in a seriously big dress, but Longoria got the look just right, keeping her accessories to a minimum, and wearing her hair scraped back into a chic bun.
Adding some seriously high-octane glamour to the French Film Festival, both actresses looked picture-perfect in their gorgeous gowns.
