Stars arrive for Cannes Film Festival 2017

The Cannes film festival kicked off with its traditional lashings of glamour on Wednesday (May 17), despite a row over US streaming giant Netflix overshadowing the 70th birthday of the world's biggest cinema gathering. 

Fan Bingbing, who has recently won the Asian Film Award for Best Actress for the film I am not Madame Bovary, is on the jury charged with awarding the coveted Palme d’Or top prize.

Here are the A-listers gracing the red carpet over the 12-day festival in the palm-fringed French resort.
