The Cannes Film Festival kicked off Tuesday on the French Riviera, with an opening ceremony oozing with glamour and elegance.

Guests walked the Palais des Festivals steps in a selection of long gowns, sometimes with slits, sometimes with trains, and generally finished in pastel shades, or even white in a few cases.

Here's a look at some of the finest red carpet fashion from the opening day at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival:
