Blake Lively Channels Julia Roberts' Oscar Dress At 2014 Cannes

Can we just say: Wow!

Blake Lively saved the best for last when she attended the "Captives" premiere at the end of Week 1 of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

Wearing a stunning strapless black-and-white gown, the former "Gossip Girl" star looked like the belle of the ball, especially next to husband, Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, who looked dashing in a matching suit.

Funny enough, the 26-year-old's gown looked eerily similar to a very famous dress: Julia Roberts' Valentino she wore to the 2001 Oscars!

Blake even wore a similar hairstyle: slicked back locks with a huge bun that touched her shoulders.

A diamond necklace, red lips and a big smile completed the dazzling outfit, which is definitely our favourite dress she has worn so far to Cannes.

The blond beauty first stepped out in the glamorous French city wearing a showstopping red Gucci Premiere dress with a thigh-high slit and then turned heads in a beautiful Chanel illusion dress.

This woman certainly knows how to make a statement on the red carpet!
