Hathaway’s light blue cinched waist dress had a delicate lace trim and tied at the side with a light purple satin ribbon. The short sleeve V-neck dress had side slits and appeared layered over matching pants.
For her part, Jessica turned heads in a halterneck dress with multicolored stripes all over. She paired it with white pumps and a red lip.
Anne wore white padded leather slippers and protected her eyes with large black sunglasses.
She completed her retro look with a deep red lipstick and a pearl necklace.

In addition to starring, Anne also produces the film, which is directed by Belgian director Olivier Masset-Depasse (Sanctuary, Illégal).
The psychological thriller reunites Hathaway with her Interstellar castmate and ‘glowing boyfriend’ Jessica Chastain, who produces and stars Celine’s neighbor/best friend Alice.
Bulgari’s brand ambassador and the 45-year-old Oscar winner also starred in James Gray’s film Armageddon Time, which receive a seven-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19.
Mothers’ Instinct is a remake of Masset-Depasse’s own film Duelles from 2018 starring Anne Coesens and Veerle Baetens.
“The perfect harmony of life is suddenly shattered after a tragic accident,” read the logline for the American reboot.

“Guilt, suspicion and paranoia combine to unravel their sisterly bond, and a psychological battle of the will begins as the maternal instinct reveals its dark side.”
Both Mothers’ Instinct and Duelles are loosely based on Barbara Abel’s 2012 novel Derrière la Haine.
“It takes actors of the caliber of Jessica and Anne to convey the intricacies of these two roles,” Olivier, Cannes SACD Prize winner, said in a statement.

“The relationship between mother and child is the most powerful connection between two people. When this bond is broken, conventional morality and even common sense is called into question.
“In the behind-closed-door atmosphere of 1960s America, Mothers’ Instinct becomes a terrifying, high-pressure powder keg.”
on May 11, Deadline reported that Neon (Pig, Titane, Spencer) has already acquired the US rights to distribute Mothers’ Instinct.
