The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Kim Kardashian West made her highly anticipated Cannes Film Festival debut in a look that’s so sparkly (and so Kim), you’re bound to be doing a few double-takes.

The mom of two proved worthy of her ‘Snap Back Queen’ title at the de Grisogono Cannes party, showing off her post-baby weight loss in a custom two-piece Lan Yu Couture gown featuring a nude body stocking underneath a silver, glittering design with a statement train. She also proved that she’ll be giving us nude selfies and nude bodysuits till she dies.

“For my first red carpet at the De Grisogono jewelry event, the designers from Lan Yu Couture flew from China with the dress and met me in New York,” Kardashian West shared on her blog of her dressing process. “They made a mesh layer under the dress for me, since I didn’t want to go too nude, and it ended up working perfectly! I loved the dress!!!”

And while you couldn’t see the star’s shoes, they were just as blinged out as her dress.

“I wore it Manolo Blahnik heels with Balmain beads that we added. The beads were leftover from the Met Gala, so now I have these super-cool custom blingy heels,” she said.

The star also saved her head-turning jewelry and makeup for the French Riviera. After skipping jewels, faux eyelashes and heavy makeup at the Webby Awards in N.Y.C., Kim transformed into a total glam goddess for the event opting for Cleopatra-inspired eye makeup (courtesy of her glam god Mario Dedivanovic), a sleek bun (catch the breakdown on Jen Atkin‘s Snapchat!) and some statement diamonds, which she spent time picking out alongside de Grisogono founder Fawaz Gruosi.

“I think it’s one of the most glamorous places,” the star told PEOPLE earlier in the day of her first experience at the star-studded film festival. “Why not come here? It’s heaven!”

“Fawaz and I met years ago in Paris at an event – we sat next to each other,” she added. “I love jewelry and diamonds and even today seeing the pieces he has, and the rough diamonds that haven’t been cut yet are so crazy fascinating to me. It was a natural fit.”

Kardashian West gave a sneak peek at her jewelry try-ons on Snapchat, modeling $36 million worth of rings, and she told PEOPLE her sisters will most likely “be jealous” of all the jewels.

“I just saw the most amazing stones and pieces. It’s fascinating to me, because not only did I see the different collections, and everything I saw were one-of-a-kind pieces, but I also saw the stones,” she said. “When you have the genius behind it … It’s really a fascinating process.”

Diamond hunting aside, Kardashian West said she felt very at home in the South of France. “There are armed guards everywhere so you feel very important!”

And she’s also taking notes on what pieces she wants to keep, telling PEOPLE she’ll be informing husband Kanye West about “everything” she tried on.
