CANNES, France (AP) -- A stiff breeze made conditions challenging for the glamour girls walking the Cannes red carpet Monday.

Jessica Chastain came to "The Rover" premiere in a flowing purple gown, but it flowed more than she liked in the wind. She had to use her hands to hold down the one-shoulder dress, with its leg-baring slit, to prevent it from becoming even more revealing.

Singer Cheryl Cole faced similar struggles with her sumptuous black dress, which was above the knee in front with a long train attached.

Monday's weather offered a cool departure from the radiant sun and warmth that previously blessed the festival. Beneath gloomy skies, it rained sporadically all day.
