The film’s stars, including Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly and Monica Barbaro, all walked the red carpet, ahead of an impressive display from the French Air Force aerobatic team Patrouille de France, which flew overhead, spraying the sky with smoke trails in the French flag colours of red, white and blue.

Cruise wore a tuxedo and black bow tie, and signed photos and posed for selfies with fans lining the red carpet, many of whom had been camped out for hours waiting to catch a glimpse of the star.

Co-star Teller opted for a white tux, and was joined on the red carpet by his model wife Keleigh Sperry Teller, who wore a grey dress with exaggerated shoulders by Celine.

Connelly wore a silver off-the-shoulder dress by Louis Vuitton, with her dark hair pulled back into a slick bun.

Other stars in attendance included Eva Longoria, who wore a silver mirrored dress by Cristina Ottaviano, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who wore a dramatic black and floral dress by Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda.

Elsewhere, pregnant model Adriana Lima was in attendance, and clearly took maternity inspiration from Rihanna, baring her bump in a black gown by Balmain.

The film was one of the most anticipated premieres at this year’s festival, which is marking its 75th anniversary.

Top Gun: Maverick is a follow up to the 1986 classic and has received rave reviews so far. The premiere was extra special for the film’s stars, who have been waiting two years for its release, because of several pandemic-related delays.
