is usually the one in the spotlight, but she played an affectionate supporting role Wednesday at the premiere of boyfriend Kanye West
's experimental film in Cannes.
West, 34, and Kardashian, 31,
were among the first to arrive at the tented pyramid on Palm Beach for the screening of Cruel Summer
, an immersive video experience with screens on all sides of the audience. As they posed for photos, the wind caught Kardashian's hair, and West gently smoothed it back into place.
The reality star, in a glittering mini dress and black booties and with slicked-back hair, was quietly adoring of West all night, sharing moments with him and helping to welcome friends including Jay-Z
. As the film wrapped, she leaned over and whispered smilingly into West's ear and heartily joined in the standing ovation he was given.
She seemed relaxed, though quiet, at the afterparty, happily nuzzling against West and letting him have his moment to shine. – Mary Green
