Lily-Rose Depp followed in her father’s footsteps as she arrived at the Cannes Film Festival.

The US actress, 23, appeared alongside Canadian superstar The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – ahead of the premiere of The Idol on Monday.

The pair star in the series which sees an aspiring pop star begin a complicated relationship with a self-help guru and contemporary cult leader following a nervous breakdown.

The HBO series was created by Tesfaye and is his acting debut, helmed by Euphoria director Sam Levinson.

It also stars Blackpink singer Jennie Kim, Australian singer-songwriter Troye Sivan and actress Rachel Sennott.

The Idol received a five-minute standing ovation following the screening of its first two episodes, which featured “raunchy intrigue” and multiple explicit moments, according to US outlets who attended.

On the carpet Depp wore a shoulderless black minidress with floral detail, while Tesfaye wore a simple black tuxedo.

Last week the actress’ father Johnny Depp stepped back into the limelight in Cannes following his high-profile defamation lawsuit with ex-wife Amber Heard last year.

The Hollywood star appears in upcoming film Jeanne Du Barry as King Louis XV – his first major onscreen project in three years.

Speaking at a Cannes press conference he said he had “no further need” for Hollywood.

Did I feel boycotted by Hollywood?” he told reporters, referring to the fallout from his US legal battle.

“You’d have to not have a pulse to feel like ‘No. None of this is happening. It’s a weird joke’.”

“When you’re asked to resign from a film you’re doing because of something that is merely a function of vowels and consonants floating in the air, yes, you feel boycotted.”

But he added: “I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because I don’t think about Hollywood. I don’t have much further need for Hollywood, myself.”

Other stars pictured in Cannes on Monday for the second week of the festival included Jude Law, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Stella Maxwell and Julia Fox.

The Uncut Gems star, known for her eye-catching looks, wore an intricate white gown, with layers of translucent material that formed a fan shape behind her.

She completed the ethereal look with an almost white foundation make-up and black lipstick.

Monday at Cannes also saw Magnum’s annual party which unveiled a new version of TikTok star Jvke’s track titled Golden Hour (ft. the Sun).

Stars pictured at the event included Eva Longoria, Nicole Scherzinger and British broadcaster Clara Amfo.
