In a big moment for not just Australian film but the stars themselves, The Sapphires cast hit the red carpet at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival last night for the premiere of their new movie. Based on the true story of four Aboriginal women plucked from obscurity by an Irishman (Chris O'Dowd) and billed as the Australia's musical answer to The Supremes, the film received a standing ovation at it's Saturday night premiere. Jessica Mauboy looked stunning in a figure-hugging sequined gown, and funnyman Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids) had fun with the photographers showing off his crazy socks. Jessica and Chris were joined by Australian acting powerhouse Deborah Mailman, NIDA graduates Miranda Tapsell and Shari Sebbens. Check out the trailer for The Sapphires — set for release on August 9 — and click through to see our Aussie stars shining at Cannes!
