Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev traveled to the south of France as Israel's representative to the Cannes Film Festival.

Regev was spotted making a particularly strong fashion statement on the red carpet. She sported an elegant ensemble with a gold sparkling top and a flowing white skirt. While her golden top was beautiful, it was the "Jerusalem of Gold" skirt that drew attention from the glitterati.

The Jerusalem skyline sparkled all along the bottom of the skirt, clearly alluding to the UNESCO decision that disavowed Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem on May 2 -- setting hers apart as likely the most political outfit of the film festival.  France was one of the 23 countries that abstained from voting.
