MANILA, Philippines — Beauty queen-turned-actress Kylie Verzosa once again walked on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in a customized dress by Mark Bumgarner.

Verzosa walked the red carpet for the prestigious festival's opening ceremony and opening film "Le Deuxième Acte (The Second Act)," starring Léa Seydoux and Vincent Lindon.

The actress wore a black custom mermaid-shaped dress by Bumgarner, who also designed her outfits when she made her Cannes debut last year, walking the carpet three separate times.

"Walking on a dream," Verzosa wrote in a social media post, showing her gratitude to Bumgarner and Valerie Messika, who provided her jewelry for the event.

Her Cannes debut was also on the festival's opening day last year where she attended the global premiere of Maiwenn's "Jeanne du Barry," which was Johnny Depp's feature film comeback.

She also wore a black couture gown by Bumgarner, with an exaggerated train adorned with black feathers, at last year's event. 

The beauty queen crowned Miss International 2016 before joining showbiz, recently starred in the movies "Elevator," "Penduko" and "Fit Check: Confessions of an Ukay Queen."

Verzosa launched her shapewear brand Sola earlier this year. 

The 77th Cannes Film Festival runs until May 25, as presided by "Barbie" filmmaker Greta Gerwig, where 22 films, including Francis Ford Coppola's "Megalopolis," Yorgos Lanthimos' "Kinds of Kindness" and Sean Baker's "Anora," are competing for the Palme d'Or.

Actress Meryl Streep received an honorary Palme d'Or, with Studio Ghibli and George Lucas set to receive theirs in the coming days.
