Princess Beatrice looked incredible when she stepped out on Monday looking like a vintage Hollywood star at Spotify's intimate evening of music and culture featuring a performance from John Legend at Cannes Lions 2024.

The King's niece, 35, looked radiant in a polka dot shirt dress from Crida Milano. The floaty dress featured puffed sleeves with a sharp open collar and a skater-style skirt.

The royal added an unexpected twist to the look which cinched in her waist and added a casual touch - a raffia belt with an oversized wood buckle from Sezane.

The patterned 'Brindisi' dress was teamed with a raffia crossbody bag from Mark Cross' collaboration with Aerin. Sarah Ferguson's daughter also added another bold element of pattern to her ensemble with the 'Yvette' slingback ballerina flats from Pretty Ballerinas.

Princess Eugenie's older sister topped off her look with a pair of round sunnies from Izipizi. Her auburn locks were styled in a bouncy blowdry and she wore a warm-toned smokey eye.

The royal was seen posing alongside Killers Anonymous star Jessica Alba who wowed in a corseted black dress, as well as podcaster Jay Shetty.

The royal was seen wearing a second look on Monday. Beatrice opted for a peach satin wrap dress from Sandro as she sat on a panel at The Wall Street Journal's Journal House to discuss emotional intelligence in the age of artificial intelligence.

The printed 'Enrika' dress with a dropped ruffled hem was teamed with the same Pretty Ballerinas flats and a voluminous blowdry.

The Cannes Lions Festival celebrates bright thinking in the advertising and communications industry. Alongside her royal duties, the Princess balances her roles as founder of BY-EQ, an advisory organisation focused on emotional intelligence in an age of artificial intelligence, and as the vice president of partnerships and strategy at Afiniti, a software company.

The mother-of-one's silk-crepe Saloni Lodha dress featured puffed sleeves, a tailored waistline, and a floaty skirt. Adding a touch of interest to the classic look was the keyhole neckline which featured three bead-adorned bows.
