Blake Lively is killing it on the red carpet at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

Blake Lively has been out of the spotlight for a moment, mostly because she's been spending quality time with her hotter-than-Hades husband of two years, Ryan Reynolds.

She's back in a big way now, first on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala — and now at the Cannes Film Festival. The actress first stepped out at the opening ceremony of this year's festival in a burgundy Gucci dress with a thigh-high slit, but it's the dress that she wore to the premiere of her new film Mr. Turner that really caught our attention.

The 26-year-old star wore an iridescent gown from Chanel's Spring 2014 Collection that has a silhouette unlike anything else we've seen this year. The plunging dress cinched at her waist with a corset-like back and plenty of intricate detail and sparkle. She paired the dress with a white shawl, pink pumps by Sophia Webster and jewels by Lorraine Schwartz.

She kept the focus on her dramatic dress with loose waves, smoky eyes and a pale pink lip. Then again, she typically wears her trademark blond strands in loose waves.

"I always like very natural hair and makeup," she told The Huffington Post in 2013. "I don't like hair too coiffed or done. I like looking like you can end the night running barefoot through a fountain in Central Park."

Don't fix what's not broken, Blake.
