Heidi Klum and her daughter Leni put on a show-stopping display as they graced the star-studded red carpet for the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala during the 77th Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

The model put on an extravagant display in a dusky pink tulle gown as she posed for snaps with her daughter, 18, before planting a sweet kiss on her cheek.

As a slew of A-Listers graced the red carpet for the charity event, some couples used it as a chance to pack on the PDA, with Cher and her boyfriend Alexander Edwards enjoying a steamy smooch on the red carpet, while Robin Thicke also shared a kiss with his fiancée April Love Geary.

Showing off her incredible figure, Heidi posed up a storm in a beautiful pink gown which boasted a voluminous tulle skirt and a matching train.

The star posed up a storm with her daughter, who contrasted her mother by slipping into a daring sheer black gown with dramatic roses to define her trim waist.

It comes just hours after Heidi and Leni displayed their jaw-dropping physiques in skimpy bikinis as they lark around on a diving board at famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France.

Leni is the daughter of Vogue model Heidi and her businessman ex Flavio Briatore, 73, but as he was based in London they did not see each other.

TMZ first reported in 2018 that Leni and Flavio had reconnected with the help of her parents. Now it seems as if they see each other now and then.

Demi Moore showed off her ageless physique as she arrived on the red carpet in a Grecian-inspired white thigh-split gown. 

As she arrived at the event, the actress was joined by Cher and the singer’s partner Alexander Edwards, who were quick to showcase their love by enjoying a steamy kiss.

Also in attendance for the occasion was Bella Thorne, who flashed a glimpse of her underwear through her daring sheer silver gown.

The former Disney star showed off her eye-popping cleavage in the plunging dress with a sleek white top, that flowing into the semi-sheer silver skirt. 

Kelly Rowland brushed off her recent red carpet drama as she attended the glitzy gala, showing off her impressive abs in a sparkly green bralet and a matching skirt.

The Destiny’s Child star showed off her jaw-dropping figure in the diamante-studded bralet and shimmering skirt, after being filmed during a tense dispute with a security guard at Cannes earlier this week.

Each year, the gala held in Cannes brings a slew of A-listers to the south of France in order to bring awareness and raise funds for the nonprofit. 

Cannes is the world’s biggest film festival, first conceived in 1939 as an alternative to the then-fascist-influenced Venice Film Festival.

It has been held annually since 1946 except in 1948 and 1950, when it was cancelled due to lack of funds.

The festival is known for its carefully selected programme of films that have gone on to Oscar glory or launched the careers of directors like Quentin Tarantino.

Cannes’ top prize is the Palme d’Or, or Golden Palm, whose past winners include Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, Pulp Fiction, The Pianist and Parasite.

Jane Campion became the first female director to win in 1993 with The Piano, followed by a nearly three-decade gap until Julia Ducournau received the award for Titane in 2021.

Justine Triet became only the third female director to take the prize last year with Anatomy of a Fall.

There is also an honorary Palme d’Or, which is awarded in recognition of notable bodies of work, with past recipients including Harrison Ford, Jane Fonda and Clint Eastwood.

There are two honorary winners this year: George Lucas of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ fame, and Japanese animation legend Studio Ghibli, the first group to receive the prize.

Other awards include the Grand Prix, jury prize, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay and best short film.

The Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off on Tuesday night as celebrities walked the red carpet into the plush Grand Theatre Lumiere to honour Hollywood actor Meryl Streep before settling in to watch this year’s opening film, The Second Act.

Almost as prestigious as winning the Palme d’Or, the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize, is being on the jury that picks the winner.

Artists from around the world who have made a name for themselves in their respective field are picked to sit on the jury, with one member designated as jury president.

This year’s jury president, U.S. director Greta Gerwig, comes to Cannes after the massive success last summer of Barbie.

She is the first female U.S. director to serve as jury president, taking the baton from the head of the 2023 jury, Triangle of Sadness director and two-time Palme d’Or winner, Ruben Ostlund of Sweden.

The breakout star of Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Lily Gladstone returns to Cannes after becoming the first Native American woman to be nominated for an Oscar and winning a Golden Globe award for her performance.
