Priyanka Chopra is arguably one of the most fashionable celebrities of the moment, so it only made sense that she stole the show at one of the most fashionable events of the year: the Cannes Film Festival.

Chopra made her grand debut at the festival while attending a screening of “Rocketman” on Thursday wearing a sparkly custom gown by Roberto Cavalli.

The glimmering sleeveless black gown featured rose-gold sequins in the middle for a pop of colour. Its thigh-high slit added a touch of drama, while her eye-catching Chopard earrings were an elegant addition to her look.

Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas were also spotted walking around on Friday in more casual ensembles that showed off their personal style. Chopra wore a flowing blue dress with a white wide-brimmed hat and matching belt, while Jonas wore a cream suit.

The film festival began on May 14, and dramatic thigh-high slits seem to be the most popular trend at the event’s red carpets so far.

Eva Longoria opted for a similar silhouette when she walked the red carpet on Tuesday.

Selena Gomez made an appearance in a two-piece ensemble by Louis Vuitton with a similar thigh-high slit.
