She is photographed everywhere she goes, so Cheryl Cole has to ensure she pulls out all the stops when she attends a red carpet event.
And the 27-year-old star certainly didn't disappoint as she arrived at the premiere of Habernus Papam at the Cannes Film Festival tonight wearing a plunging white Stephane Rolland dress.
The outfit left very little to the imagination, but Cheryl managed to look both sexy and elegant in the white creation.

Vampish: Cheryl's slicked back hair and dark plum lips were in sharp contrast to her usual style
Cheryl teamed the dress with an unusual belt, which featured what appeared to be two gold pears on the front, and gold clutch bag.
The X Factor USA star also opted for a different look with her hair and make-up, going for a slicked-back ponytail and dark plum-coloured lipstick.
The choice was a sharp contrast to Cheryl's usual appearance of voluminous hair and fresh-faced make-up.
Cheryl caused a stir when she arrived for the first day of the X Factor USA auditions wearing a brightly coloured outfit and huge, backcombed hair.
But tonight's ensemble, reminiscent of the clingy white dress Pippa Middleton wore when her sister Kate married Prince William, couldn't have been more different.
Perhaps the reason for that was because fellow X Factor USA judge Simon Cowell had offered Cheryl some advice.
A source said: ‘Simon told her he didn’t love her orange top and purple flares - he said he had seen her look far more glamorous.
'He’s really keen for her to boost her international profile in Cannes and has urged her to look fantastic.'
Cheryl appeared poised and confident as she posed for photographers on the red carpet at the premiere.
She is also expected to make an appearance at a party hosted by L'Oreal, the cosmetics company of which she is the face, later this evening.

It's the second year running Cheryl has made an appearance at Cannes.
Last year, she again managed to hit the headlines when she arrived wearing a cutaway Versace dress to perform a set at the party during the film festival.
It's been a busy few weeks for Cheryl, who is expected to continue her jetsetting by flying straight back out to Los Angeles for further X Factor USA auditions as soon as she is finished in Cannes.
And Cheryl has already proved a hit with her fellow judges Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid on X Factor USA.

However, the Parachutes singer told MailOnline she was nervous about how US viewers would react to her strong Geordie accent.
She said: 'I'm hoping people are going to embrace it. I'm not worried (about my accent). It's going to be interesting. I hear a lot of accents here too.
'I'm sure there will be words or phases where people are like, excuse me?'
Asked if she would adjust or change her voice, she replied emphatically: 'Never! I would be crucified where I'm from if I tried to change my accent.'
