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 springâ€“summer 2015 couture collection, while Liu wore the label’s ice blue silk pencil peplum gown with pearl and crystal embellishment from its autumnâ€“winter 2014â€“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.
MoÃ«t Hennessy, which was a Gala sponsor, auctioned a luxury experience with accommodation, wine tastings and visits to chÃ¢teaux, and three golden jeroboams of MoÃ«t Imperial champagne, for â‚¬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’OrÃ©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.
