The Cannes Film Festival has been a sea of glittering premieres and parties after being cancelled last year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And on Monday evening, Maggie Gyllenhaal, 43, and Iris Law, 20, led a host of stars stepping out to attend the premiere for The French Dispatch, during the event’s seventh day. 

The Donnie Darko actress portrayed business chic in a silk white blouse and voluminous black floor-length tulle skirt.

The actress’ shoes couldn’t be seen beneath the length of her sweeping skirt, and she opted for a flawless make-up look finished off with a bold red lip  

Iris – who is the daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost – looked ethereal in a pleated Grecian gown and showed off her new blonde buzz cut.

The model’s plunging white maxi dress billowed as she strolled the red carpet and boasted a unique central overlay neckline held up by ties.

Just two days earlier, one of the film’s stars, Lea Seydoux, 36, tested positive for Covid-19 forcing her to miss the premiere.  

According to a report from Variety on Saturday, the Blue is the Warmest Colour star got the virus on set of her new film despite having both doses of the vaccine and being asymptomatic. 

A spokesperson for Lea confirmed to the publication that she had tested positive for the virus, and stated she will remain in quarantine until her doctors have advised her it is safe for her to travel.

As Lea now has to remain in self-isolation at her home in Paris, it was suggested that she may have to cancel her trip to the Cannes Film Festival all four premieres of the films in which she stars.

As well as The French Dispatch, Lea appears in The Story Of My Wife, France, and Deception which are all set to debut over the coming days.  

It is unclear which film set Lea was working on when she contracted the virus, as she is said to be in pre-production for two films, Crimes of the Future and Le Bal des Folles. 

MailOnline contacted Lea’s representatives for further comment at the time.
