Celebrities walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival opening night gala.

Meryl Streep, Greta Gerwig and Lily Gladstone attended the gala Tuesday in Cannes, France, along with the premiere of the opening night film, The Second Act (Le Deuxieme Acte).

Several stars wore shades of blue, white and red, the colors of the French flag.

Streep, 74, wore a white custom Dior Haute Couture wrap dress. The actress received an honorary Palme d'Or during the opening night ceremony, presented to her by French star Juliette Binoche.

Binoche called Streep an "international treasure" and lauded the Sophie's Choice and Julie and Julia star for changing "the way we look at cinema."

Binoche, Gerwig and model Heidi Klum wore hues of red, with Klum in a fiery red gown from the Saiid Kobeisy spring 2024 couture collection.

Gerwig, 40, will serve as Cannes jury president this year. The Barbie writer and director wore a dark sequined dress and shared her love for film at the opening ceremony.

"I love cinema. This is holy to me. Art is sacred, and films are sacred," she said onstage. "I cannot believe I am getting the opportunity to spend the next ten days in this house of worship."
