She made an impact when she first attended the Cannes Film Festival last year. But Kendall Jenner certainly kicked it up a notch for her first red carpet appearance at this year’s event.

The 19-year-old model put on an incredible display as she arrived for the screening of Youth on Wednesday evening in her eye-catching Azzedine Alaia pieces.
As ever, she made sure one of her many enviable body parts was on show and this time, it was her pancake-flat torso that stole the limelight. She donned a very short black crop top with a mesh-style overlay and transparent edging, giving a cheeky glimpse of her braless cleavage. The item was paired with a hugely flowing, oversized skirt in the same fabric and design, hints of her endless legs showing through the swathes of net.

As one of the fashion world’s hottest up-and-coming models, Kendall really proved herself as she cut an impeccable figure on the red carpet at the Grand Theatre Lumiere at the Palais des Festivals.
She upped the glamour with a chunky glitzy Chopard bangle and matching choker, finishing off the look with towering strappy black sandals, adding further height to her already lofty frame. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star turned this way and that to show off her directional ensemble from all angles and, at one point, made sure the drama of her skirt was visible as she held it out and spun around in the middle of the red carpet.

The raven-haired beauty wore her tresses pulled into a chic up-do, while also adding a splash of Hollywood glamour with scarlet red lipstick.
She oozed confidence as she soaked up the vibe at the Cote d’Azur-based festival, which is now in its 68th year. And, shortly after turning the red carpet her own personal runway, she took to Instagram to share with her millions of social media fans that she had had a great time. Along with a stunning shot of herself making theatrical waves with her skirt in front of the hundreds of photographers, she wrote: ‘I had fun Cannes.’ Kendall was one of the many stars at the Wednesday evening premiere for Youth, which stars Jane Fonda, Rachel Weisz and Harvey Keitel among others.
The movie, written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino also stars movie icon Michael Caine and is up for the coveted Palme d’Or prize. It tells the story of a pair of 80-year-old friends on holiday in the Alps, looking back at their lives and the time they have left. One of the men is a film director struggling to complete his latest movie, while the other is a retired composer and conductor who is considering an offer to return to work.

Meanwhile, Kendall has been enjoying herself in the Riviera town for the past day, after touching down at Nice Airport on Tuesday. She spent time earlier on Wednesday with her BFF Cara Delevingne, who is also in Cannes for the 11-day long film festival, which ends on Sunday May 24.
