Lupita Nyong'o has been laying low since red carpet season ended, but she returned to the spotlight at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.

The 32-year-old actress attended the opening ceremony and premiere for "La Tete Haute" ("Standing Tall") looking like royalty dressed in a jade chiffon Gucci gown with embellished floral detail along the neckline. Her glam squad -- hairstylist Vernon François and makeup artist Nick Barose -- added the finishing touch with a voluminous bun and fuchsia lips.

"Wearing strong colors doesn't have to be loud, sophistication can be fun too," said Barose. "It's all about having fun with colors but keep it balanced from looking overdone."

Soak in Lupita Nyong'o's Cannes beauty look below, and see which other celebrity looks we couldn't get enough of this week.

    To accentuate Nyong'o's gorgeous green dress, her hairstylist pulled her natural locks up into a headband-adorned bun and her makeup artist went for full brows and bold lips. To get the Lancôme ambassadress' dramatic makeup look, use Sourcils Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen in Noir and layer lips with Color Design Lipcolor in Hit List and Shine Lover Lipstick in Palpitante.
  • Salma Hayek
    The Mexican actress looked poised and pretty as she posed during a photocall at the Cannes Film Festival. Her rose-printed Alexander McQueen dress brought out the rich chestnut hues in her hair. For a voluminous blow-out like Hayek's use a boar bristle round brush.

    We are absolutely floored by Miller's glamorous red carpet look. Her textured updo, winged eyeliner and poppy red lipstick work beautifully with her navy Lanvin one-shoulder dress. Try Charlett Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red lip color to achieve this bold pout.

    The "Mad Men" actress is sporting the perfect summer hair and makeup for the 2015 Fox Programming Presentation. With her blonde hair pulled into a loose topknot, Jones' makeup artist Hung Vanngo fashioned the perfect winged eyeliner with Ck One Color Eyeshadow Base in Simple and Ck One Color Eyeliner Marker in The Drama.

    Stanchfield attended the Entertainment Weekly and People celebration of The New York Upfronts, and we had to do a double-take. The redhead gave us Julianne Moore vibes with her sleek and straight hair and radiant complexion. Be sure to watch our hair straightening tutorial before picking up the flat iron.

    Can King get any cuter? With this natural-looking glow, we think not. The "How To Get Away With Murder" star accentuated her jet-black waves with smokey eye makeup, luminous foundation and glossy lips. Mix Cover FX Custom Cover Drops with your favorite moisturizer for sheer but even coverage.
