Sharon Stone brought a touch of old Hollywood glamour to the French Riviera on Wednesday evening as she attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Elvis.
The screen veteran, 64, belied her age in a sweeping red gown that clung to her slender physique as she walked the red carpet at the event, held on the resort town’s famous Croisette.
She added to her look with a smart bejeweled handbag, while heavily tinted sunglasses shielded her eyes as temperatures continue to soar in the south of France.

There’s a lot of excitement around the Elvis Presley biopic from Australia’s Baz Luhrmann, who is hoping to recreate the buzz he generated when he brought the can-can to Cannes with Moulin Rouge! 20 years ago.
The film chronicles the life and career of Elvis from his early days as a child growing up in Mississippi to his ascent as a rock and roll icon and movie star, along with his complex relationship with his manager.
Luhrmann served as the film’s director and co-screenwriter, along with Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce and Jeremy Donner, from a story he conceived with Donner.

Elvis – who sold over 1B records – received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018 and he’s been inducted into multiple music halls of fame.
Elvis died, age 42, in 1977 from cardiac arrhythmia due to a toxic reaction to codeine.
Austin recently noted that he ‘lost touch’ with his own personality while playing the eponymous character.

He told GQ Magazine: ‘You can lose touch with who you actually are, and I definitely had that when I finished Elvis – not knowing who I was.’
As well as the mental impact of playing Elvis, Austin also revealed he was bedridden for a week after falling unwell one day after wrapping up the filming in March 2021.
Austin said he was diagnosed with a virus that simulates appendicitis and said it was like his body shut down straight after filming.
He said: ‘I woke up at four in the morning with excruciating pain, and I was rushed to hospital.’
