Hilary Swank is used to receiving awards. Having been named Best Actress by the Academy not once, but TWICE (Million Dollar Baby in 2004 and Boys Don’t Cry in 1999), makes her somewhat of an expert. However, in France this week, Hilary was the one presenting the awards.
Hollywood has descended on le Croisette in Cannes once again for the 62nd Annual Cannes Film Festival. Stars come from all over the world to walk the red carpet for this famed event. Many important awards are presented during the festival, including The Chopard Trophy; an award given to a young up and coming actor and actress named Male and Female Revelation of the Year. This year’s Chopard Trophy was presented by Hilary Swank and Marion Cotillard to French actress Lea Seydoux, for her performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds; and German actor David Koss, who appeared opposite Kate Winslet in The Reader.
Hilary Swank, seen here at the Chopard event wore a beautiful tiered gun mental gown from Armani Prive, matching sandals from Sergio Rossi and a Swarovski clutch. Her multi colored triple strand pearls from Chopard were truly breathtaking, and matched her dress beautifully. Hilary finished her look with a large diamond ring, also from Chopard, worn on her forefinger. Hilary may have been presenting the award at this event, but clearly, she looked like the evening’s winner!
Hilary Swank will next appear opposite Richard Gere in Earhart – the story of Amelia Earhart. Hilary looks so elegant on the red carpet… Are you ready to see her take on a more feminine role than those she has won awards for in the past?
