Gallery: Cate Blanchett dazzles on day three of Cannes Film Festival

Cate Blanchett looked dazzling on the red carpet on Friday evening, as day three at the Cannes Film Festival drew to a finish.

Premiering How To Train Your Dragon 2, Cate was joined on the red carpet by Kit Harington, Jay Baruchel, America Ferrara and Dijmon Hounsou - and the famous character Toothless.

Cate's Givenchy gown included a bodice featuring elaborate multi-coloured embroidery on the front and a sheer-illusion back. She added more glitz with sapphire Chopard earrings while the gorgeous actress kept her blonde bob pulled into a low chignon with side braids.

America looked stunning in a white Georges Hobeika Couture dress which had sheer panelling running down through the centre. With a matching clutch and a simple hairstyle, America bought a pop of colour with a bright red lipstick.

Joining the How To Train Your Dragon 2 cast on the red carpet was Naomi Watts, in a dusty blue Marchesa gown with black diamond detailing along the neckline and waist.

The off-shoulder design of the dress was complimented by Naomi's curls being swept to one side.

Also on Friday evening, Blake Lively joined husband Ryan Reynolds on the red carpet as he premiered The Captive, and joining the pair were Ryan's co-stars Rosario Dawson and Mirelle Enos.

Elsewhere, Gemma Arterton, Lea Seydoux and Matt Smith were just some of the stars at the The Annual Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner.
