Jodie Foster exuded elegance as she hit the star-studded red carpet for the Annette premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday.

The actress, 58, looked incredible in a figure-hugging white dress which boasted silver embellishments and a stylish slit at the back.

Joining the star was her wife Alexandra Hedison, 51, with the couple putting on a loved-up display as they posed for snaps at the event.

Jodie dazzled in her striking gown which featured a fitted skirt and cut-outs on her shoulders.

She teamed the look with a pair of gold open-toe heels and added a stunning silver ring for an extra touch of bling.

It was an especially big night for Jodie as she was presented with the Palme d'Or Life Achievement Award by Spike Lee and Bong Joon-Ho.

Jodie and Alexandra tied the knot in 2014 after one year of dating. Alexandra was previously in a relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres.

Meanwhile, Jodie was in a relationship with Cydney Bernard from 1993 until 2003, and the former couple share two sons, Charles, 22 and Kit, 19.

She referenced her sexuality at the Golden Globes in 2013 when she was 51, subtly declaring she was 'out and proud' while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award.

French filmmaker Leos Carax returns with his first feature film since the critically-acclaimed 2012 film Holy Motors for this new musical.

The Sparks Brothers members Ron Mael and Russell Mael write both this original story and the music for this film, chosen as the Opening Night selection at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival on July 6.

The trailer opens with Henry (Adam Driver) and Ann (Marion Cotillard) frolicking in a field, with Henry stating, 'The first time I fell in love I woke up next to the girl and escaped, fast and far.'

Ann is seen eating an apple in bed while Henry rides his motorcycle through Los Angeles.

Ann is a world-famous opera singer, with Henry a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles, as he adds, 'What I see in her is obvious, what she sees in me... hmm, that's a little more puzzling.'

Henry, who is described as, 'a stand-up comedian with a fierce sense of humor,' is seen performing on stage, before Henry and Ann's daughter is born, Annette.

The doctor is seen using a comically large pair of scissors to clip the umbilical cord as the couple welcome their first child.

Henry is seen cradling the newborn with one arm while blowing cigarette smoke away from her in their backyard.

The trailer continues with a number of shots of Driver, Cotillard and Simon Helberg, who plays a musical conductor simply known as The Conductor.

The trailer winds down with a number of dramatic shots including Driver yelling to a crowd, 'What's your problem?'

The final shot finds a distraught Henry telling presumably Annette that, 'Everything will be all right.'

The film will be released in theaters on August 6, before debuting on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service on August 20.
