Cannes Film Festival is like a magnet for the rich and famous, with Hollywood's most glamorous of stars descending upon the Palais des Festivals to celebrate and reward the year's most acclaimed films. 

Now in its 77th year, the festival has already proven to be a glittering affair, with the likes of Meryl Streep, Demi Moore, and Salma Hayek amongst the stars who have graced the French Riviera this week. 

While the world's most prestigious red carpet has acted as a stage for sartorial splendour and adorable couple's moments, it has also proved to be a heartwarming occasion for families. 

From Sienna Miller's daughter Marlowe, 11, making her red carpet debut to Kevin Costner bringing five of his seven children to the premiere of his film Horizon: An American Saga, HELLO! rounds up the best family moments at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival so far.

British muse Sienna Miller, who recently welcomed a baby girl with her boyfriend, Oli Green, was a vision on the red carpet in a Cinderella-blue gown. 

The actress was surrounded by family support as she was joined by Oli, her mother Josephine and her rarely-pictured daughter Marlowe, 11, who she shares with her ex-partner, Tom Sturridge. 

Marlowe was every inch her mother's daughter as she wore a beautiful flower-adorned satin dress, smiling for cameras as she took Sienna's hand up the iconic Palais des Festival steps.
