The 2013 Cannes Film Festival got under way last night, as the lavish (and very rainy) opening ceremony ushered in the stars, their stylists and the cast and crew of every film worth talking about from the past 12 months. With the Great Gatsby 1920s look a major influence, many of the hemlines were high, so we've got a good ogle at what many of the celebs chose to put on their feet - and despite the current trend for flatties it was heels, heels, heels for many leading ladies. 

Here's Nicole Kidman, always a towering beauty in heels. It seems almost cruel to place her alongside the more diminutive Audrey Tautou, but both look stunning in their frothy, whipped-cream gowns (Yqing Yin for Tautou, Dior for Kidman). But for me, those slick, bugglegum pink pumps were the main event!

But that wasn't all! Earlier in the day as she arrived in Canne, Kidman wowed again with her choice of ribbon-tied, pointed Jimmy Choo heels. The Australian actress has recently been named as the new face of the luxe footwear brand, so it only seems fitting that she should debut the style at the start of the event - and I love her figure-hugging glittery blue dress.
