Each day, Cannes Film Festival gives fashion enthusiasts a new red carpet look to decode, and one of the most exciting ensembles seen in the past 24 hours has got to be that of Sara Sampaio’s. In case you missed it, the Portuguese model is currently in France, spending her time by the French Riviera enjoying the very best of the annual festival. Last night, Sampaio walked the red carpet in a striking Zuhair Murad gown that stood out for all the right reasons. Check out her ruby red look below.

Sara Sampaio’s red Zuhair Murad gown featured a thigh-high slit
Crafted in a rich shade of cherry red, Sara Sampaio’s Zuhair Murad gown was one for the books. For her evening at Cannes Film Festival, the Lebanese designer dressed the model in a strapless number that came with a fitted bodice and flowing skirt, complete with a risqué thigh-high slit. Adding more drama to Sampaio’s outfit was its cascading cape, which billowed out behind her as she walked.
Keeping with the palette of her stunning ensemble, the model opted for red velvet heels by Jimmy Choo, and completed her Pretty Woman-esque look with a sparkling diamond neckpiece and elegant earrings by Messika.
To add a romantic touch to her all-red outfit, Sara Sampaio had her deep brown locks pulled back from her face with braids, and opted for a fresh, natural makeup look. If you’ve got a big celebration on the cards and love to make a statement, a bold red number like hers is just the ticket.
