It's her big night on the red carpet.

So it's rather fitting that Hollywood actress Elle Fanning, 18, pulled out all the stops for her latest appearance at the 69th Cannes Film Festival on Friday evening.

The blonde beauty wowed onlookers as she arrived at the Palais Des Festivals, where she headed-up the list of stars attending the premiere of her new movie, The Neon Demon. 

The young star, whose credits include We Bought A Zoo and Maleficent, looked superb in her choice of attire which seemed to combine both modern style with classic Hollywood inspiration.

Strapless with a corset upper, the dusty pink number boasted a netted skirt with train and was embellished with roses for a feminine aesthetic.   

Upping the ante even further, she accessorised with a ruby pendant necklace which drew attention to her neckline. 

The beauty stars alongside Keanu Reeves and Christina Hendricks in the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed film. Elle plays Jesse, an aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will do whatever it takes to get what she has.

It's the third consecutive film directed by the Danish 45-year-old to compete for the festival's Palme d'Or prize after Only God Forgives and Drive. 

Amazon Studios will release The Neon Demon in US theaters sometime in June and in UK theaters beginning July 8. 

Kirsten Dunst was also a VIP guest at the event.

Clad in a canary yellow gown, the 34-year-old actress continued to reign supreme in the style stakes as she ascended the iconic stairs ahead of the screening.

Oozing elegance, the blonde beauty opted for a vibrant canary yellow gown that showed off her incredible figure - nipping in at her tiny waist and flaring out with a dramatic train.
