Melissa George was a vision in white as she posed for photos on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on Saturday evening.

The Paris-based Australian actress, 44, wore an elegant white Armani ensemble as she attended a screening of De Son Vivant (Peaceful) in the resort town on the French Riviera.

Melissa oozed elegance in the delicate number, which featured sparkling white flared trousers that showed off her slender pins to perfection.

She teamed these with a lace bodysuit, which was enhanced by a black scarf and dangling necklace which draped down across her waist.

She complimented the look with a silver blazer which was draped across her shoulders, and accessorised with a black clutch bag and gold bracelet.

Melissa wore her hair in a formal up-do, which drew attention to her sculpted cheekbones and striking features.

Peaceful, also known as De Son Vivant in French, is directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, and stars Catherine Deneuve, Cécile de France, and Benoît Magimel in the leading roles.

The film follows three characters, a son (Magimel) who is diagnosed with cancer, his mother (Deneuve) and her struggle with being unable to help him, and the nurse (de France) trying to do her job.

Cannes Film Festival is now on its fifth day after been cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Melissa currently lives in Paris with her two sons, Raphaël, seven, and Solal, five.

Back in 2012, Melissa famously told The Sydney Morning Herald that she wouldn’t return to Australia because she was sick of local media being ‘disrespectful’ by mentioning her role on Home and Away.

‘I don’t need credibility from my country any more, I just need them all to be quiet. If they have nothing intelligent to say, please don’t speak to me any more,’ she said.

‘I’d rather be having a croissant and a little espresso in Paris or walking my French bulldog in New York City.’

However, she later changed her tune after temporarily returning Down Under to film the drama Bad Mothers for Channel Nine.

During a promotional interview for the series in 2019, Melissa gushed to TV Week magazine: ‘Whenever I come to Australia, I feel complete.’

She had spent 10 days filming Bad Mothers in Melbourne in 2018, and believes the short stay helped her ‘reconnect’ with the Australian culture.

‘This was a great opportunity to come home and be amongst Australian talent. That’s why I wanted to do this,’ she explained.

‘I’d say a lot of Australian talent gets forced to go overseas – that’s the way things work. But when we come home, it’s like the last piece of the puzzle to fit.’
