Above Amy Malin gives her powerful speech on being a survivor of rape, assault and torture; actor Corey Feldman looks on.

Amy Malin, AnnaLynne McCord, Corey Feldman, all of whom have suffered serious sexual assaults, joined Rani Hong, a survivor of slavery and child trafficking, at an event on Friday in Los Angeles, hosted by Malin and the Tronie Foundation, to celebrate World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
   Pianist Chloe Flower, Hill Harper, Nestor Serrano and Ryan Devlin were among the celebrities who attended the event, where Malin, McCord, Feldman and Hong recounted their horrific events from their past to highlight the world’s ongoing problems with human trafficking and domestic violence.
   Malin’s story of rape, imprisonment, and physical and mental torture at the hands of one sociopathic tormenter, and violent physical relationships for 11 years of her life, was incredibly compelling, and brought a powerful, real human face to the issues. ‘In my humble opinion, domestic violence is the worst plague on humanity and is the root cause of so many of our other social problems. Everyone in this room knows someone who is a survivor or a victim of domestic violence, only you just might not know it yet, and that’s because the shame-and-blame culture of our society makes most survivors of abuse too afraid or ashamed to come forward with their stories and get the help that they need. It takes most survivors many years before they can even process the atrocities that they have experienced, and then even longer before they are comfortable in a safe, physical and emotional space to share what they gave endured with somebody else.’
   She reminded the audience that she was not alone, and that events like this continue every day around the world, in our own communities behind closed doors. (Her passionate address from the event can be found at her website.)
   Hong, who co-founded the Tronie Foundation and is a special adviser to UN.GIFT (United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking), was taken from her family at age seven and sold to a slave master. Her mental and physical condition was so poor by the time she was eight, she was sold into illegal adoption. She also shared her story at the event: like Malin, she gave a voice to the millions who were unable to.
   McCord and Feldman also shared stories of sexual assault. McCord, who noted that she was always careful, recounts that she was sexually assaulted at home by someone she trusted. She has recently written and directed a short film, I Choose, about ‘a woman who chooses and a woman who doesn’t, because I’ve been both.’ (The film is embedded below, as our fourth video.) It was important for McCord to tell real-life stories, again to bring a human face to the massive problems of sexual assault. Feldman, meanwhile, notes that rape is Hollywood’s darkest secret, and that that had driven him to years of substance abuse, and that fellow actor Corey Haim was similarly a victim, having been raped at age 11.
   They believe that people in the entertainment industry can help to eradicate human trafficking and domestic violence. Malin suggests that producers should, when filming abroad, do due diligence to ensure that they do not do business with those using slaves or people being paid a pittance. She also adds that audiences should see strong, female characters who have overcome great odds, including stories reflecting hers and Hong’s. Hollywood, she believes, has a unique opportunity to make real change.
   The cycle of violence would never be broken, says Malin, if the film industry continues to reward Roman Polanski with Oscars after his admission of sexual assault, or if it continues to work with men such as Woody Allen, who has been accused by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow of sexual assault.
   She and her husband Scott, who have a son, plan to adopt a daughter from the Los Angeles foster system who has been a victim of abuse, to show that ‘she will have the beautiful and amazing life she deserves, and that she will never go through the hell that I did.’—Jack Yan, Publisher

Top The Beatles in A Hard Day’s Night, 1964. Above George Harrison marries Pattie Boyd in 1966.

Catalina Island, California
Hard to believe it’s been a half-century since the première of A Hard Day’s Night. To commemorate the date, the Catalina Island Museum will mount a special 50th anniversary screening of the legendary movie starring the Beatles on Sunday, July 6 in Avalon’s Casino Theatre at 7 p.m. Lucire loves the vintage déco interior. On hand to take questions will be author Pattie Boyd (right), who you can surely interrogate about her life and times as wife of George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and her best-selling memoir, Wonderful Tonight. Pattie exudes energy and personality, and loves to laugh. Watch for her in a famous scene which takes place on a train: she’s the blonde girl in a school uniform, who flirts with George.


Paris, France
A new website has launched this week which could simplify the task of finding lodging in this capital city: www.myboutiquehotel.paris/fr/. It looks like a pretty cleverly designed and attractive site, listing over 250 boutique hotels. You can select by price, star rating, location, nearby landmarks, areas of interest, but the kicker is the promise of a real live human being person available on the phone to assist you. We’d be interested to learn of anyone’s experiences with this site. Good luck with your launch!

Gurgaon, Haryana, India
While the city, population 20 million, stews under a layer of world-class pollution (mostly the by-product of wood fires), the problem of traffic compounds the subject. Gurgaon excels in congestion, and this week some like-minded technology companies are rolling out Folksvagn, a cheekily-named ride-sharing solution in the Palam Vihar and Sector 22–3 area. It’s also a vote of support for Gurgaon start-ups like our friends at Nagarro, one of a group deploying modern mindsets in the interest of transforming urban mobility with programmes like this. If you’re looking for a sustainable and socially responsible ride to work in Gurgaon, this may be your answer.

Punta Ala, Italy
This week, Baglioni reopens La Vela, a classic architectural monument originally known as a swinging disco in 1965. You can see its signature roofline on the very exclusive beach here. A glorious renovation transforms the space into a 160-seat restaurant and spa. Ideally situated among a cypress grove, with astounding views of the nearby islands Elba, Capraia and Pianosa, the airy infinity terrace promises to be an ideal location for sunset beverages and prime people-watching. GM Luigi Magnani promises ‘a soft club’ experience for evenings.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor

Day eight at the Cannes Film Festival saw plenty of stars at a number of high-profile events at the Festival de Cannes. Aishwarya Rai, Barbara Palvin (showing off her figure in a skin-tight white gown), Araya A. Hargate, Lara Stone (very noticeable in bright pink), Irina Shayk, Sharon Stone, Michel Hazanavicius, Bérénice Bejo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in Gucci and de Grisogono diamond briolette earrings), Cara Delevingne, Izabel Goulart, Inna Zobova and Sarah Marshall hit the red carpet for The Search.
   Hazanavicius’s screenplay, inspired by Fred Zinnemann’s 1948 film of the same name, moves the action from World War II to the Second Chechen War in 1999, and centres around the trials of a nine-year-old boy, Hadji (Abdul-Khalim Mamatsuiev), who witnesses Russian soldiers murder his parents in Nazran. Annette Bening plays an American who runs an orphanage who tries to help the boy, while Bejo, Hazanavicius’s wife and the star of his earlier film, The Artist, is a French-born, Chechen-based NGO worker who lets Hadji stay with her. Filmed in Georgia, the film has received mixed reviews.
   In our videos below, Hazanavicius talks about his portrayal of the Russian Army and of Chechnya in the press conference, with the red-carpet event at the Palais des Festivals following.
   Meanwhile, Magnum (that’s the ice-cream, not the photo agency) has hosted its 25th anniversary party at Cannes, with Kylie Minogue, Amy Willerton, Emma Miller, Kimberley Garner, and Chiara Ferragni in attendance. Roberto Cavalli threw a party at Cannes on day eight, and there was the Puerto Azul Experience Night at Villa St Georges, which Veronica Berti, Andrea Bocelli, Kelly Preston and John Travolta attended. Our first video, however, filed at noon yesterday, is from de Grisogono, which traditionally holds one of the grandest parties at Cannes each year. Look out for Cara Delevingne, Paris Hilton, and Sharon Stone at this year’s dinner party.
   L’Oréal Paris has provided details of the cosmetics used by Rai, Stone and Palvin, below.

The Cannes Film Festival’s seventh day is Aishwarya Rai’s day

The Festival de Cannes’ seventh day’s most talked-about red-carpet film was the Dardenne brothers’ Deux jours, une nuit, starring Marion Cotillard. The legendary Sophia Loren joined the brothers on the red carpet, as did former Miss World-turned-actress Aishwarya Rai, in a stunning gold Roberto Cavalli gown, and actors Aurelien Wiik and Jimmy Jean-Louis, with Montblanc timepieces on show.
   Cotillard plays a working-class wife and mother fighting to keep her job at a solar panel company in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s latest film. Fabrizio Rongione plays her husband.
   If she fails to persuade her colleagues to vote for her retaining her job, then her two children’s welfare is at risk, and the family will have to move into state housing.
   Deux jours, une nuit is in the main competition at the Cannes Film Festival and has received largely positive reviews for its realistic portrayals and the very real concern many families have over their modern work lives.
   Rai was the only L’Oréal Paris ambassador on the red carpet on day seven that we spotted. Meanwhile, she has another red-carpet appearance scheduled for day eight, and will co-host the AmFAR Gala with her husband Abhishek Bachchan. Bachchan had Tweeted that Rai had not slept for 52 hours prior to her red-carpet appearance, and applauds her poise at Cannes.
   Some of the other day seven clips can be found in our round-up yesterday, including the arrivals of Ryan Gosling and Matt Smith.
   Rai’s compatriot and fellow L’Oréal Paris ambassador, Sonam Kapoor, appeared on the red carpet during day six.

Day six—and a bit of seven—saw plenty more activity at the Cannes Film Festival. We’ve spotted Gabriella Wright, Béatrice Rosen, Gisella Marengo and Sarah Marshall on the red carpet on the 19th, with Montblanc haute joaillerie in common, while Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo have donned cufflinks from the luxury brand. After wondering where Cheryl Cole was this year—she has been a fixture for the past two—the Geordie songstress turns up, as do a golden Sonam Kapoor and Judit Masco. Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, and Leïla Bekhti make more appearances on the red carpet (helped in no small part by L’Oréal Paris’s Volume Million Lashes in the Cannes 2014 edition).
   Robert Pattinson had another press conference, this time for Maps to the Stars. In our video, he discusses having on-screen sex with Julianne Moore and Juliette Binoche, and we now have a second video from the red-carpet première of The Rover.
   Steve Carell and Channing Tatum have been spotted arriving in Cannes, with Carell and Bennett Miller appearing at the press conference for Foxcatcher. Adrien Brody, meanwhile, is announcing a new film project, Emperor, along with director Lee Tamahori, who is very highly regarded in France for Once Were Warriors.
   By the time of the red-carpet premières, Pattinson was joined by John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, David Cronenberg, and Julianne Moore.
   From today’s footage, Abel Ferrera talks about the media reaction to Welcome to New York, and being labelled anti-Semitic. Marion Cotillard, in a colourful dress made of buttons, meets her fans; while Ryan Gosling arrives to promote his new film, Lost River, his directorial début. Gosling and former Doctor Who star Matt Smith, in one of our last videos in this entry below, are capturing fans’ attention, while our last video summarizes some of Blake Lively’s fashion—as you’ve been seeing in Lucire these past few days.

Mahshid Mahdian, from Brera Academy, Milano, won the ID Dunedin Emerging Designers’ Award and its NZ$10,000 prize on Thursday night.
   Mahdian’s collection, Shadow, was inspired by shadows in Burano Island in Venezia, and features geometrical shapes and innovative technologies.
   The Tehrān-born designer was encouraged by Mittelmoda’s Stefano Sopelza to enter the awards.
   Judge and World creative director Francis Hooper said in a release, ‘While overall, the standard of finalists were amazing, the winners stood out because their unique character and personality as a designer came through in their garments.
   â€˜Mahshid captured a moment in a heartbeat … When you looked at her collection, you knew she had it just right. It delivered on that inexplicable X-factor.’
   Alanna Barca of RMIT won the Caffè l’Affarè second-place prize of NZ$4,000; Chin Hau Tay of RMIT won third place with the Dunedin International Airport prize of NZ$2,000.
   A special prize was awarded to Vaibhav Singh of NIFT, who wins an internship with Martin Grant in Paris.
