The ensemble consisted of a boxy blazer and matching pants. The double-breasted suit jacket had pointy shoulder pads and a side slant closure.

She stuck to a monochromatic moment by accessorizing with a small square clutch. Davis also wore dangling silver earrings and an a large ring. When it came down to footwear, award-winning actress complemented her outfit with pointed-toe pumps. The shoe style had a silver metal accent at the end of the toe and an elongated top line.

The Cannes Film Festival celebrates and previews upcoming international films. Held annually on the French Riviera, this year’s festival, which runs May 17-28, will see a return to its standard live format for the first time since 2019 — though Russians with government ties have been banned from attending in solidarity with Ukraine during the ongoing war. On the starry front, the 2022 Festival will host more Hollywood-focused films than it has since 2019, where highly anticipated movies “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Elvis” and “Armageddon Time” will be shown. Additionally, the prestigious Palm d’Or award, the Festival’s highest prize, will be judged by a jury led by actor Vincent Lindon.
