Shakira pulled out all the stops for her look at the 75th Cannes Film Festival.

On Wednesday, the 45-year-old singer hit the red carpet for the premiere of "Elvis" at the Palais des Festivals wearing a black strapless sweetheart gown by Mônot that featured a daring thigh-high slit. The Colombian star paired the look with sheer black gloves, eye-catching diamond necklace and ring, opting to keep her infamous curly tresses in soft glamorous waves.

Shakira shared photos of her Jessica Rabbit-inspired look to Instagram and included praise for the Baz Luhrmann-directed film.

"What an extraordinary movie of one of my favourite artists of all time," the "Hips Don't Lie" singer wrote.

Fans quickly weighed in on the mother-of-two's elegant and head-turning red carpet attire.

"An ageless queen!" wrote a fan on Instagram. "You look so classic and gorgeous, and I absolutely love the gloves."

"This look is iconic and pure old Hollywood glamour. Stunning as always!" said another.

"This is a dress fit for a queen!" added another fan. "Just divine and beautiful."

"Wowza! Looking stunning and look at that body and those legs!" someone else wrote.

Although Shakira looked like a film star on the Cannes red carpet, her next project will bring her back to the small screen. The Grammy award-winning singer is set to join Nick Jonas and Liza Koshy as a judge on NBC's new show, "Dancing With Myself."

The dance competition series will feature contestants in "a series of high-energy dance challenges."

In an interview with The Tonight Show, Shakira said the show will "offer people from all walks of life and all ages a platform where they can showcase their talents."

"They don't have to be professionals," she said. "Most of them aren't. The idea with the show is just to offer an opportunity and access to people from everywhere to dance and to show their true passion for dance."
