The Australian pop princess has graced the red carpet for the Elvis premiere at Cannes Film Festival, where she wore a jaw-dropping sheer gown.
Kylie Minogue was spinning around in a sheer gown on the red carpet at Cannes.
The 53-year-old Australian pop star attended the premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis biopic at the iconic film festival on the French Riviera, where she turned heads in a stunning black gown.
the Can’t Get You Out Of My Head singer’s dress featured a sheer bodice with a bedazzled bra, as she styled her blonde hair in a tousled lob with dramatic eye make-up.
Minogue complimented her ensemble with a diamond necklace brimming with glamorous emeralds.
Meanwhile, Luhrmann’s Elvis had its world premiere at the 75th annual Cannes festival, with the movie set to premiere in Australian theaters in June.
It was shot on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and stars US actor Austin Butler as Elvis Presley, while Oscar winner Tom Hanks portrays his manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
Fellow Aussie, 24-year-old actress Olivia DeJonge – who plays Priscilla Presley – also walked the red carpet at Cannes in a silver long sleeve mini dress.
The movie received a 10-minute long standing ovation after the screening, according to dead line.
Luhrmann, 59, was emotional following the reception, telling the audience he was having an “epiphany” as he reflected on his 1992 movie Strictly Ballroom playing at Cannes 30 years ago. At a separate screening prior to the iconic Australian film’s Cannes debut, Luhrmann recalled one exhibitor telling him it was “the worst film” he’d ever seen.
“We were staying in a trailer park, and I was saying, ‘This film thing is never really going to work out.’ [Then] I got a call on the telephone and it was a Frenchman … On the phone somebody said, ‘Hello, my name is Pierre Rissient, I am from the Cannes Film Festival, and we have seen your film and we would like to offer you a 12 o’clock screening at the Palais’,” Luhrmann said.
“At the end of the performance, I remember a security guard came over and said, ‘Monsieur, from this moment on, your life will never be the same again.’ And it wasn’t.”
I added of Elvis: “I really believed that we would come to Cannes, but then the Covid came and the film was shut down and it was never going to happen.
“But for the bravery of Tom [Hanks] to come back and the bravery of this cast and this crew to go on through Covid and finish this film. And we are back in Cannes.
“To see these streets so full of people who love movies of every form of life, every kind of movie, says so much more about what this place means and what it means to be back in the cinema. For that we are eternally grateful, Cannes. All I can say is, merci beaucoup, merci beaucoup.”
