While the Cannes Film Festival is famed for its ostentatious fashions, Gemma Arterton kept things simple on Friday.
The brunette beauty attended the annual Charles Finch dinner at the luxury Hotel du Cap Eden Roc where she stood out from the crowd in a flirty pink dress which perfectly flattered her slim figure.
A scalloped hem and delicate cap sleeves gave the ensemble a fresh look, while her matching pink heels complemented her choice.

Director Marjane Satrapi joined her stars on the red carpet at Sundance London Film Festival ahead of the screening of the American-German comedy crime horror thriller.
The film follows Reynold’s mentally ill Jerry, a disturbed factory worker who isn’t taking his medication so therefore believes his cat and dog are speaking to him, with the former telling him to become a serial killer, and the latter, insisting his master is good.
At the same time Jerry yearns for attention from a woman in accounting and soon their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, where he ultimately finds his salvation.

‘I love all things bizarre and dark but I never ever get offered things like that,’ Arterton said at the premiere on Saturday night. ‘So I read it and thought, “This is the sort of thing that I love”. I thought it was so funny and very moving.’
Speaking of her Canadian co-star, Gemma said: ‘He’s incredible in this movie, it’s one of his best performances. He’s just so easy to work with, it’s a hard part to play and he just did it with such grace, really top class.’
