Helen effortlessly combined style with travel comfort as she layered a thin emerald cardigan over the glamorous silk top. She cut a laidback figure in the loose fitting maxi skirt which perfectly matched her trainers.
The actress swept her hair up into a light grey head band and kept covid safe in a white protective face mask. Helen kept her essentials close by and wore a black bum bag around her waist for the outing.
Helen is in France for the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival, which runs July 6-17.

The gongs will be handed out at the end of the festival on July 17, with films by Leos Carax, Wes Anderson, Sean Penn, and Paul Verhoeven all in the running.
The outing comes after Helen was seen for the first time on the set of her latest project Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
Helen is set to take on the character of Hespera and star alongside Zachary Levi, 40, in the DC Comics superhero sequel.

Helen’s villain has had some comic book fans scratching their heads as Hespera is not included in the DC Comics canon.
According to Comicbook.com, Hepsera, who has been described as ‘a daughter of Atlas, is an original creation by screenwriter Henry Gayden.
Gayden penned the screenplay for the original movie released in 2019 and reunited with director Sandberg for the follow-up.
In addition to Helen, Lucy Liu is also appearing the sequel, playing another villain Kalypso, who is the sister of Helen’s character.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods has been scheduled for a June 2, 2023 release date.
