With so much going on in the fashion world 24–7 we at Lucire thought you might need a quick Instagram update on what’s been happening in the lives of models and designers in the last week as we chronicle this world.
   With the spring–summer men’s runway shows in the last couple of weeks, most of the designers have runway shots or close-ups of details: we see that in Vivienne Westwood, Gucci and Valentino’s photos. Moschino released this beautiful illustration by Natalia Sanabria of Daphne Groeneveld in a look from their men’s show.
   The models’ Instagrams are a bit more interesting: Gigi Hadid and Liu Wen are giving us a sneak peak into their different photo shoots, the former with her sister and latter a shot of herself from Vogue. Cara Delevingne’s latest doesn’t have much to do with fashion at all: she is traveling around the world at the moment, promoting her new movie, Paper Towns. Kendall Jenner was also promoting something a little unexpected: a signature lipstick collaboration with none other than EstĂ©e Lauder, whom Jenner now represents.—Fenella Clarke

MAC Cosmetics celebrated the opening of its new store in MĂĽnchen, Germany by having an Art of the Lip party.
   MAC, which was founded in Toronto in 1984, has since then taken the make-up world by storm, featuring in almost all runway shows and sold in 150 countries. This party is one of many that have been hosted around the world, each celebrating the many ways your can paint your lips. Lily Allen performed as well as drag queen Miss Candy and DJ Pierre Sarkozy.
   At the party were MAC make-up artists showing the guests different ways of doing their lips, for example defining your lip line with lipliner, and making your lips look bigger with a bit of lip-glass in the middle of the lips. True to form, a fashion show also took place, with models wearing designs by Zaldy, giving an avant-garde vibe at the event.
   Guests included Viktoria Lauterbach, Josefina Vilsmaier and her sister ThĂ©rèsa Vilsmaier, Verona Pooth, Alicia von Rittberg, Franziska Knuppe, Melissa Faber-Castell, Victoria Swarovski, Katja Riemann and her daughter Paula, Palina Rojinski, Nadine Warmuth, Bettina Zimmermann, Lisa Seitz and her daughter Luzie Seitz, Sophia Thomalla, Mina Tander, Lisa Tomaschewsky, and Tom Wlaschiha. General director Gabriele Medingdörfer was also there as was Bettina Zimmermann, who hosted the event.
   MĂĽnchen now has two stores (in Pasing and the OEZ), with a pro store set to open in August. MAC is also planning on opening more free-standing stores throughout Germany in the autumn.—Fenella Clarke

Day 10 of the Festival de Cannes saw Ralph & Russo gowns chosen by models Jourdan Dunn and Liu Wen for The Little Prince screening: Dunn had a black tulle strapless fishtail gown with floral crystal embellishment from the spring–summer 2015 couture collection, while Liu wore the label’s ice blue silk pencil peplum gown with pearl and crystal embellishment from its autumn–winter 2014–15 couture collection.
   Among the auction items bid on that we didn’t note in our previous report on the AmFAR gala were Tom Ford dresses auctioned by Eva Longoria (fetching US$900,000) and a Banksy original from the collection of Leonardo DiCaprio (US$1,000,000). DiCaprio also auctioned a date with himself on his yacht, getting US$280,000. Proceeds went to Aids research.
   MoĂ«t Hennessy, which was a Gala sponsor, auctioned a luxury experience with accommodation, wine tastings and visits to châteaux, and three golden jeroboams of MoĂ«t Imperial champagne, for €70,000. It also announced a three-year global partnership with AmFAR, where it will be the exclusive wine and spirits partner for all its events.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris has released a series of behind-the-scenes images revealing the preparation for the Gala, featuring Soo-Joo Park, Barbara Palvin, and Karlie Kloss.
   Finally, our Celebrity Wire video, filed earlier today, briefly covers day nine’s Women in Film event, where Calvin Klein hosted Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel Weisz, Sienna Miller and Emily Blunt.

Cannes’ AmFAR Gala is the big bash during the film festival, with celebrities this year flocking to the Cinema Against Aids event at the HĂ´tel du Cap-Eden-Roc at the Cap d’Antibes. Over the years, the event has raised US$140 million for AmFAR’s research programmes designed to consign Aids to history.
   Celebrities attending this year included Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (wearing a mauve Elie Saab gown; husband and co-event chair Abhishek Bachchan could not be present due to work commitments), Kendall Jenner (in Calvin Klein), Toni Garrn (in Elie Saab), Irina Shayk (in Atelier Versace), Doutzen Kroes, Paris Hilton (in Yanina, with jewellery by Avakian), Selita Ebanks, Eli Mizrahi, Chanel Iman, Petra NÄ›mcová, Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss (in a silver Tom Ford), Eva Longoria (in Georges Hobeika), Soo-Joo Park, Barbara Palvin, Isabeli Fontana, Antonio Banderas, Li Yuchun, Natasha Poly, Sienna Miller, Marion Cotillard, Adriana Lima, Liu Wen, Rita Ora (in Marchesa), Lily Donaldson, Dita von Teese, Lara Stone, Gigi Hadid (in Tom Ford), Noomi Rapace, Diane Kruger, Sara Sampaio, Bella Hadid, and Tom Ford. Donning jewellery by de Grisogono were Kloss, Sampaio, Joan Smalls, and Izabel Goulart. Sharon Stone commemorated 20 years of supporting AmFAR at the event.
   This year’s Black and White Collection fashion show was curated by Carine Roitfeld, with music by Mark Ronson. Imagine Dragons, Mary J. Blige and Charli XCX (wearing Vivienne Westwood) performed live at the event.
   Sponsors included Bold Films, Harry Winston (who created an Epic Cluster necklace for the auction, with proceeds going to HIV–Aids research), the Weinstein Company, and MoĂ«t Hennessy.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris treated the evening as the perfect opportunity to showcase its support of the entire Festival de Cannes, with 10 of its spokeswomen attending—promoting its Superstar line of mascaras and eye-liners and Infaillible lipsticks and foundations that have proven to be staples for celebrities this year.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Ralph & Russo Couture dove grey silk gazar layered ball gown with crystal, feather, perspex and velvet embellishments, from the house’s autumn–winter 2014–15 collection, was the talk of Cannes yesterday, as the Bollywood star attended the première of Youth, the new film from Neapolitan director Paolo Sorrentino. She wore minimal make-up, too, with L’OrĂ©al Paris noting that her beauty look was relatively simple: Glam Bronze in Eau de Soleil, Super Liner So Couture in black, and Color Riche 30 Years in Nuit Blanche (231). Rai Bachchan proved the old adage: it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.
   Fellow L’OrĂ©al Paris faces were there, too. Thai actress Araya A. Hargate, a huge draw for southeast Asian audiences, went for a tiered look, too, but with a more floral style as she chose Giambattista Valli for her second appearance on the Cannes red carpet. Those familiar with this season’s L’OrĂ©al Paris products won’t be surprised to see Superstar Mascara being part of her make-up, as well as the Superstar Eye Liner; la Palette in Beige and Infaillible Mega Gloss, in You Know You Love Me (509) gave Hargate her summer movie-star looks.
   Soo-Joo Park (the platinum blonde Korean star made her first appearance for 2015), Barbara Palvin (with a more startling look this season, using bold, dark eyelashes and eye-liner, including L’OrĂ©al’s Miss Manga Punky mascara for that extra volume), Doutzen Kroes (a classic beauty, with a more natural look, with only a very light blush complementing VML So Couture in black, the Superstar Eye Liner, and the Brow Artist Plimper; finished off with the Color Riche 30 Years in Greige Amoureux), Karlie Kloss (in Louis Vuitton, with de Grisogono Allegra ring and bracelet and tubetto Gypsy earrings), Lara Stone (in a dark metallic Versace dress), Jane Fonda, and Megan Gale were out in force, too.
   De Grisogono, still on a high since its Divine party on Tuesday night, noted that its jewellery was the choice of Izabel Goulart (in Azzedine AlaĂŻa, with jewellery totalling 60 ct in diamonds and rubies). Chanel Iman had appeared earlier in the week wearing de Grisogono’s titanium earrings set with diamonds and pearls, and sparkled her way on to the red carpet yesterday in a red, strapless Donna Karan gown.
   Finally, behind the scenes, Eva Longoria celebrated her first decade with L’OrĂ©al Paris, and the company threw her a party to commemorate the event.

De Grisogono held its Divine party last night at the HĂ´tel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, and in the style that one would expect from founder, creative director and CEO Fawaz Gruosi, it was the A-list place to be on the Riviera.
   Plenty of celebrities showed up on the seventh day of the Festival de Cannes to celebrate a huge week: Natalie Portman, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Paris Hilton, Nina Agdal, Joan Smalls, Chanel Iman, Natasha Poly, Adrien Brody and Lara Lieto, Hofit Golan, Mary J. Blige (in Emilio Pucci), Amaury Nolasco, Denise Rich, Eugenia Silva, Harvey Weinstein, Nicole Kempel and Antonio Banderas, Izabel Goulart, Annie Clark, Carolina Parsons, Michelle Rodriguez, Marta Marzotto, Milly Carducci and Angelo Donati, Stephen Hung, Titi Aynaw, Victoria Bonya, Ayem Nour, and Daria Strokous. Violetta Gruosi, the daughter of Fawaz Gruosi, happily and comfortably rubbed shoulders with the celebrities.
   Portman had come from the Sicario première wearing her Lanvin dress.
   In the garden, de Grisogono set up a catwalk with the word Divine positioned in large letters behind it, with additional lighting in the trees. A video was broadcast on to the façade of the building promoting the gems in de Grisogono’s Grappoli range, including emeralds, white diamonds, and orange and blue sapphires. De Grisogono hosted a fashion show in the garden highlighting its jewellery, with Robin Thicke performing a DJ set at the after-party.

Sonam Kapoor was arguably the highest-profile actress (when you factor in our audience numbers) walking the red carpet at the première of Inside Out on Monday, wearing a sorbet-coloured haute couture feathered gown from Elie Saab. At the weekend, the actress had unveiled Michelin star chef Vikas Khanna’s book, Utsav: a Culinary Epic of Indian Festivals, providing the book with added international exposure.
   Eva Longoria, meanwhile, took to the Inside Out red carpet with a silver Gabriela Cadena dress with sheer side panels and a train, earning plenty of coverage as she attended on behalf of L’OrĂ©al Paris (which announced that her look did, once again, feature the Superstar Mascara—ideal for Cannes—and the Infaillible 24h Matte foundation in Sand, the Super Liner Smokissime, and, for the lips, the Infaillible Mega Gloss in 502, Hold Me Close).
   Fellow L’OrĂ©al signature face Andie MacDowell, wore a coral Elie Saab gown with plunging neckline, commemorating 30 years of working with the French cosmetics’ giant.
   It’s a hard act to follow for many in MacDowell’s footsteps who also appeared on day six. Weronica Zalazinska, who proves that you can blog and get L’OrĂ©al to notice you at age 19, was only fitted for her gown in Warszawa on Friday, but made her Cannes red-carpet dĂ©but on Monday. Turkish actresses Cansu Dere (in a fitted white suit and matching cape) and Fahriye Evcen (also in white, but a column dress) also appeared for the beauty brand, for their own markets.
   Spanish model Eugenia Silva chose a black Dior gown, having de Grisogono’s Boule earrings, bracelet and ring set off against her dress, Sara Sampaio wore Vionnet spring–summer 2014 with Avakian Diamond Links bracelet and Diamond Riviera earrings, while Nina Agdal went for an aquatic theme with her light aqua Gyunel dress with gauze train, complemented by de Grisogono Gypsy earrings.
