Twirls have become a staple at the Cannes Film Festival — and they offer a perfect opportunity to show off a killer pair of heels.

Lupita Nyong’o, whose twirl at the 2015 festival went viral, did it again this year, spinning in a glamorous blush-colored Prada gown at Chopard’s party. While Nyong’o’s Gianvito Rossi heels stayed hidden under the billowing gown, she showed off all the folds of her voluminous dress.
