J *essica Mauboy *has played the red carpet jewel for the screening of new Australian film The Sapphires at the Cannes Film Festival.
In a figure-hugging, silver-sequined dress, the 22-year-old singer sparkled alongside director *Wayne Blair *and her co-stars as she entered a packed cinema for Saturday night's premiere.
Festival commentators at Cannes have described The Sapphires as a feelgood drama and a comedy and on Saturday night an audience crammed with critics gave it a long standing ovation.
Standing alongside Mauboy to complete the foursome for Australia's version of The Supremes were *Deborah Mailman *, *Shari Sebbens *and *Miranda Tapsell *. The starlets were joined on Saturday night by male co-stars *Chris O'Dowd *and *Tory Kittles *.The Sapphires, which is not in competition at Cannes, is due for release on August 9.
