She is hardly the shy and retiring type.

So it’s perhaps unsurprising that Anika Noni Rose put on a buxom display when she stepped out with co-star Joanthan Rhys Meyers on Monday.

The screen beauty sported a very bold look at the MIPTV GALA at Hotel Martinez in Cannes, France, where she effortlessly commanded attention.

Stepping out in a bright yellow number, the sexy, sleeveless dress deftly turned heads – in part thanks to the revealing, cut-out panel across her stomach.

Rising up to showcase the lower part of her bosom, the 43 year-old was clearly feeling body-confident and managed to work the look.

Scraping her hair up into a classy bun, she ensured all eyes were on her choice of attire.
