    Default Liz Hurley muscles in and steals the limelight at Cannes

    Liz Hurley muscles in and steals the limelight at Cannes


    She has never won an award for her acting - but Elizabeth Hurley certainly deserves one for her nerve.


    With Rachel Weisz belatedly pulling out of her fanfare red carpet appearance at the opening gala of the 60th Cannes Film Festival, Liz apparently saw her chance.

    Liz Hurley: Stunning in an £8,000 Valentino gown, and £1 million worth of dazzling Chopard jewellery


    Miss Hurley had been in Cannes not for any particular acting commitment, but to be the star of a party thrown by jewellers Chopard happening later on in the evening.
    But when producers of My Blueberry Nights, the festival's critically-acclaimed opening movie found themselves without their Oscar-winning leading lady (Miss Weisz had been delayed on the set of her current film in Serbia), Miss Hurley was only too happy to oblige.

    Wearing an £8,000 Valentino gown, and £1 million worth of dazzling Chopard jewellery, the 41-year-old former actress did what she does best - and stole the show - as she sashayed down La Croisette.
    While she beamed at photographers and waved to bemused fans, Jude Law and folk singer Norah Jones made their own, far more sedate progress down the famous waterfront. Scroll down for more pictures...

    Of course, Miss Hurley had every incentive to shine in her jewels.
    Her latest public appearance comes five weeks after she was publicly disowned, and humiliated, by her new in-laws.
    Accusing the model of "blatant and cynical commercialism", they hit out at husband Arun Nayar and Miss Hurley's over-the-top nuptials - which took place over two weeks in the Cotswolds and in India - as well as the models refusal to wear their wedding gift of a £35,000 ruby and diamond necklace.
    But with no thought of her in-laws, the mother-of-one proudly sported her glittering jewellery.
    Although there was no sign of her 43-year-old tycoon husband, the star, whose acting credits include Bad Boy, Double Whammy and Bedazzled, made do with the company of a host of other celebrities at a lavish cocktail afterparty.
    Miss Hurley's red carpet appearance was, for the local crowd anyway, slightly outshone by the arrival of the French actress Juliette Binoche, a festival regular. Though it was Hurley the assembled paparazzi went wild for. Scroll down for more pictures...

    Others who arrived included Kelly Brook and her partner Billy Zane, models Victoria Silvstedt and Eva Hertzgova.
    Miss Hurley was not pictured with Andie MacDowell, who arrived on the red carpet slightly earlier.
    The fashion conscious may remember that some 13 years ago Miss Hurley also rather upstaged Miss MacDowell on the red carpet of Four Weddings and A Funeral in London, on the arm of then beau Hugh Grant, and wearing that black Versace dress, barely held together by safety pins.
    The star-studded party was very much in keeping with the starriest festival in Cannes' 60 year history.
    Although there is not a single British entry in this year's competition – instead American heavyweights such as the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino dominate – it is the most eagerly hyped fortnight in decades.
    Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Daniel Craig, George Clooney and Julia Roberts are all expected to grace the annual extravaganza of air-kissing, networking and glamour.

    More than 20 films are competing for the coveted Palme d'Or, ranging from big-name US productions to more obscure art house films from around the world. British director Ken Loach was the surprise winner of last year's trophy for his film, The Wind That Shakes The Barley.

    Holy sh@t what a bunch of D listers. Couldn't they get the real stars to come out for the festival. Minnie Driver looks terrible. Poor woman.

    No wonder Liz stood out. Look at her female counterparts.

    Juliette Binoche is an excellent actress, and very pretty and stylish too, IMO. She's certainly not a D-lister by any stretch of the imagination, much less compared to the likes of Hurley, Kruger, etc. Driver looks ghastly. She looked far better when she had some weight on her -- starvation doesn't suit her. Toni Collette is also a "real" actress.

    That photo of Minnie looks shopped around the waist area.

    After a glittering appearance...it all goes downhill for 'tired and emotional' Liz Hurley


    Hours after upstaging the stars of the silver screen at Cannes, Elizabeth Hurley appears to have had one tipple too many, dropping her usual red carpet-ready composure.


    After a party thrown by jewellers Chopard, the 41-year-old model looks somewhat dishevelled and bleary-eyed, and is forced to lean on fashion designer, and close friend, Valentino for support.

    Red nose day: A flushed Liz looks as if she's trying to cover up a case of the hiccups



    Sitting in a chauffeur driven car a sheepish-looking Liz – not normally known for her reticence – attempted to hide her face from the ever-present paparazzi.


    Maybe she was concerned about what husband Arun Nayar might have to say upon seeing pictures of his wife in an unusually 'fragile' state.

    The 41-year-old former actress had been flown in to be the star of a party thrown by jewellers Chopard.



    And she certainly made the most of her appearance, basking in the spotlight while wearing an £8,000 Valentino gown, accessorised with £1 million worth of dazzling Chopard jewellery.

    However, she looked far from glamorous hours later, as she appears 'tired and emotional' after partying the evening away at a lavish cocktail party thrown by the jewellers.

    Liz was a last minute show on the Croisette, following actress Rachel Weisz's no-show due to filming commitments in Serbia.

    With Weisz belatedly pulling out of her fanfare red carpet appearance at the opening gala of the 60th Cannes Film Festival, Liz stepped in at the last minute to up the glamour quotient.
    Her latest appearance in Cannes comes five weeks after she was publicly disowned, and humiliated, by her new in-laws.

    Shouldn't it be "mussels" instead of "muscles"? Cause I can just picture her flexing her muscles in Schwarzie-like fashion!

    Liz's arms look fine to me. Most women don't have perfectly scultpted arms like a weight lifter. This idea that women SHOULD look like that is the whole body dysmorphia thing that Hollywood is creating.
