When Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski had the same look at Cannes !

However from next year, films will have to be released in French cinemas if they want to be considered.

When this year's Cannes jury roster was announced, there was really only one head scratcher in the bunch: Will Smith.

On the rotating kiosk, we see festival opener, the off-competition festival opener Ismael's Ghosts by Arnaud Desplechin and the in-competition L'Amant Double by Francois Ozon.

A story of haunted love with a dusting of "Adaptation", "Ismael's Ghost" received a solid if not overwhelming reaction after it debuted for media Wednesday morning.

The Cannes Film Festival runs through May 28, when the Palme d'Or victor and other awards will be announced. "Will!" "West Philadelphia is a long way from Cannes", joked an enthusiastic Smith, referring to his hometown.

Oil prices dip as supplies remain ample despite production cuts
In addition to US crude stocks drawing down for the sixth consecutive week, the EIA showed an increase in refining rates. Oil traders are concerned over how fast USA shale oil producers will increase production to capture the rising prices.

With her hair looking effortlessly glam as always, and her makeup look understated, Sarandon added a touch of bling to her red carpet look with a pair of diamond and sapphire drop earrings.

Fashion and films collide as is the tradition at Cannes with the celebrities parading one spectacular gown after another. The 20-year-old supermodel wore a daring pink gown that offered a glimpse at her nude underwear when the slit in her dress flew open.

Jury president Pedro Almodovar agreed with the change, saying films should always be seen on the big screen and he was "concerned" about the issue - but Will Smith disagreed. The two films have been at the center of a hot debate, as they are among the first films in competition to not screen in French cinemas. "You must be small and humble in front of the image that's here". There are movies that are not on a screen within 8,000 miles of them.

Stars are arriving under tighter security than in previous years, 10 months after the truck attack in nearby Nice that killed 86 people.

Concrete barriers - in the form of giant flower pots - have been set up to try to block a similar assault, and snipers have been positioned above sensitive sites.
