Love Island host Maya Jama took Cannes Film Festival by storm on Saturday evening as she stepped out wearing a dramatic floor-length gown.

Dressed up to the nines, the presenter showcased her gorgeous curves in a figure-hugging, off-the-shoulder number complete with a floor-grazing hemline and a swooping neckline.

Maya, who wore the gown to an exclusive Vanity Fair x Prada Party, teamed her black chiffon dress with a pair of matching gloves for an added ounce of glamour.

The 28-year-old TV star highlighted her naturally pretty features with a pop of plum blusher, winged eyeliner and a glossy nude lip. Channelling her inner '90s pop songstress, Maya wore her raven tresses in a funky updo featuring jagged, spiky sections and two long tendrils framing her face.

Maya's jaw-dropping look comes after she caused a stir in a futuristic green and purple bodycon maxi dress. The star looked flawless in her statement frock which accentuated her trim waist and toned legs.

For the glitzy occasion, Maya debuted a brand-new hairstyle, worlds away from her typically sleek hairdos. Opting for a fresh look, the radio DJ styled her glossy locks into a voluminous, curly updo plucked straight from the '80s.

In keeping with the nostalgic '80s twist, Maya accessorised with oversized gold earrings and a violet-hued manicure. She elevated her ensemble with a smoked out eye, sleek eyeliner and a pop of champagne highlighter.

Captioning the photo, Maya penned: "It's Rick James bishhh"

Fans and friends went berserk in the comments section, with one writing: "You look sensational," whilst a second gushed: "Wow you are stunning rocking THAT hair style."

A third follower noted: "Obsessed doesn’t even begin to describe how much I love this hair!" and a fourth enthused: "This look is everything," followed by a slew of flame emojis.

To maintain her incredible physique, Maya prioritises her fitness regime. She told Women's Health: "I have loads of energy so lately I've been trying to channel that into an exercise routine. But I'm still very much a beginner. I now work out three to four days a week because I know it's an important part of keeping healthy."

She continued: "I'm actually finding it quite fun. Once a week, I do a one-hour boxing workout with my trainer Bradley Simmonds, who keeps me motivated; if I'm on my own, I’ll pump up high-energy songs like Bicycle by Vybz Kartel to get me through my workout."
