CANNES, France (AP) — A fierce wind whipped the Croisette Friday, but it failed to ruffle Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who walked the red carpet for Woody Allen’s “Irrational Man” in a knockout pink gown from British couture house Ralph & Russo.

The pop star, “X-Factor” judge and British tabloid favorite — formerly known as Cheryl Cole — pulled off a look whose diverse elements came together in almost classical harmony.

In front, the thigh-split gown had a floral-covered plunging neckline, but that was outdone by the other side — backless, but with a train whose folds of draped fabric lent the look a hint of Greek statuary.
