Dame Helen Mirren and her fellow Hollywood veteran Andie MacDowell were among the stars walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

The 74th running of the event is under way in the south of France following a break last year due to the pandemic.

Dame Helen was spotted at the premiere of The Velvet Underground, director Todd Haynes’s documentary about the influential rock group.

Accompanied by husband Taylor Hackford, Dame Helen looked elegant in a long-sleeved white dress cinched at the waist by a chunky black belt.

MacDowell, 63, looked delighted to be attending the premiere for drama Everything Went Fine, flashing the peace sign to photographers.

The Four Weddings And A Funeral star wore a shimmering silver and white gown for the screening.

She wore a black gown with sparkling details.

Supermodel Eva Herzigova caught the attention of the pack of photographers lining the carpet.

The 48-year-old – who famously appeared in Wonderbra’s 1994 “Hello boys!” advertising campaign – wore a white ruffled top teamed with black trousers.
