Lindsay Lohan back on sparkling form as she steps out for exclusive event in Cannes

From Salma Hayek to Cate Blanchett and Carey Mulligan, the Hollywood glitterati are certainly out in full force in Cannes.

And the latest celebrity to arrive in the French Riviera is Lindsay Lohan, who was back on top fashion form to attend a star-studded celebration in honour of Chopard's 150th birthday.

After an absence from the red carpet in recent months, the 23-year-old sparkled at the event in a white mini dress set off by silver sequinned detailing on the shoulders.

While there she rubbed shoulders with a number of other screen beauties, including Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts and Meg Ryan.

Naomi Campbell – who will celebrate her 40th birthday in Cannes on Saturday - and her Russian love Vladimir Doronin, Kate Beckinsale and Classical Brits host Myleene Klass were also at the bash as was Paris Hilton who arrived with her family.

All the stars were out to see guest of honour Lionel Richie perform at the exclusive event held in the VIP rooms on the Croisette.

Introduced by Myleene as "a hero", the US singer appeared just after midnight and belted out many of his classics, including Dancing on the Ceiling, Hello and Easy Like Sunday Morning.

After Lionel's turn, guests were then treated to a set from Madonna's boyfriend, DJ Jesus Luz (pictured above).

Lindsay has jetted in to France to announce her upcoming biopic on Linda Lovelace. It might be a short stay for the actress though, who is scheduled to attend a court progress hearing later this week stemming from her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.
