Madeline Mulqueen and Jack Reynor have been joined in Cannes by the world’s A list film stars.

Before strutting across the red carpet in the French city last night, Madeline tweeted a photo of one of the dresses she would be wearing at the film festival.

“When you see a skirt that looks like a giant flower... pick it,” she wrote alongside the photo.

The Irish couple were there for the screening of his latest film Macbeth.

Kerry actor Michael Fassbender, who also stars in the movie adaptation of the Shakespearean drama, was on hand to fly the flag for the Irish with the young couple.

Socialite Paris Hilton stole the show as she arrived at the screening of Inside Out’ in an eye-catching gold gown, while Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria wowed in a revealing silver design.

Actresses Andie MacDowell, Isabelle Huppert, Amy Poehler and our own Gabriel Byrne were also among the big names.

Madeline, who has been in a relationship with Reynor since the couple met over Twitter in 2012, has been enjoying celebrity life in the French city since arriving at the festival on Friday.

It didn’t take long for the striking brunette, who starred in the video for the Rubberbandits’ viral hit Horse Outside, to get into the festival spirit, as she stepped out to an exclusive party thrown by French magazine Stylist just hours after arriving.

As well as supporting her soon-to-be husband, Madeline has made it her business to fly the flag for up-and-coming Irish designers at the star-studded festival.

The fitness fanatic stepped out in threads by rising homegrown fashion star Colin Horgan a few days ago, having previously worn his designs while supporting Reynor on the worldwide press tour of his Hollywood blockbuster Transformers 4 last summer.

Jack, Madeline and Michael aren’t the only Irish stars to have attended this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Over the weekend, bad boy actor Colin Farrell stepped out for the premiere of his latest film The Lobster.

Dressed in a Dolce and Gabbana tuxedo, the Dubliner (38) walked the red carpet along with his co-star Rachel Weisz, who is married to James Bond actor Daniel Craig. The Lobster, which was filmed in Kerry, received rave reviews after its screening at the festival.

His role in the film marks his second much-talked about performance this week, as the former Ballykissangel star enjoys a major career comeback thanks to his role in the second series of True Detective.
