Miss France 2021, Amandine Petit, goes electric blue with her Peugeot e-208

Filed by Lucire staff/July 14, 2021/8.44



Miss France 2021, Amandine Petit, has taken delivery of a Peugeot e-208 GT from the company’s dealership in Caen in Normandie, with Victor Mary, marketing director of the Mary group, handing her the keys.
   Petit has chosen a blue e-208, the all-electric B-segment hatchback from the French car maker.
   Since its launch in 2019, the P21 generation of 208 has sold c. 630,000 units worldwide, and is France’s top seller in the first half of 2021.
   The e-208 is equipped with Peugeot’s I-cockpit with a three-dimensional head-up display and driving aids that are usually the province of more upmarket models. Battery capacity is at 50 kWh, which gives the car a 340 km per charge range on the WLTP combined cycle.

Arguably, Bella Hadid stole the show in a Schiaparelli haute couture autumn–winter 2021–2 dress, designed by Daniel Roseberry, at the première of Tre Piani on day six of the Cannes Film Festival. The wool crêpe dress featured a low-cut neckline, and Hadid complemented it with a gilded brass necklace with trompe l’œil lungs, adorned with rhinestones.
   The Luxembourgeoise actress Vicky Krieps, star of Mia Hansen-Løve’s Bergman Island, is a fan of Chanel, wearing designs from the spring–summer 2021 haute couture collection at the film’s première. Krieps herself was wary of the front row but had been invited to a Chanel show with a handwritten note from Karl Lagerfeld, according to WWD. Lagerfeld, as it turned out, was a fan of Krieps, and the two met post-show.
   Krieps’s co-star Tim Roth wore a Prada dinner suit and brushed leather shoes; he similarly wore Prada at the photo call. Melissa George chose a gown from the Christian Dior haute couture spring–summer 2020 collection.
   During the day, Dylan Penn also chose from Chanel, wearing a pullover and trousers from the cruise 2021–2 collection at the photo call for Flag Day.

Festival de Cannes 2021 kicks off, with Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren, Charlotte Casiraghi

Filed by Lucire staff/July 8, 2021/5.00




Chanel

The change to July for the 2021 Cannes Film Festival has helped with guaranteeing great weather, and some will celebrate Bastille Day during the period, but overall there has been less buzz with COVID-19 still being a reality—even if France attempts to downplay it as the event went ahead.
   The opening ceremony saw Carla Bruni in Céline, Marion Cotillard, Angèle, Sébastian Tellier and Mati Diop in Chanel, Mélanie Thierry in Dior, and Lou Doillon in Gucci on the red carpet.
   L’Oréal Paris continued with its ambassadors walking the red carpet as part of its ongoing sponsorship, with Helen Mirren, Andie MacDowell, Leila Bekhti, Nidhi Sunil and Baptiste Giabiconi.
   The July 7 dinner to celebrate Leos Carax’s Annette, starring Marion Cotillard, was hosted by Chanel, for whom Cotillard is an ambassador.
   It ties in perfectly with Chanel’s cinema theme this year as No. 5 celebrated its centenary.
   Sixty guests attended the dinner with Chanel’s Virginie Viard at Bijou Plage, including Carax and Cotillard, Charlotte Casiraghi, Angèle, Soo Joo Park, Simon Helberg, Sparks, Tilda Swinton, Sébastian Tellier, Mati Diop, Naama Preis, Nadav Lapid, Rebecca Marder, Anne Berest, Rianne van Rompaey, Mica Argañaraz, Tonya Lewis Lee, Molly Lewis, Lola Nicon, Nicolas Maury, and Jenke Ahmed Tailly.
   Earlier in the day, Preis had appeared on the red carpet for Nadav Lapid’s Ahed’s Knee, in Chanel haute couture spring–summer 2021 complemented by Chanel high jewellery and shoes. Géraldine Pailhas chose from Chanel’s ready-to-wear line for spring 2021 as she walked the red carpet for François Ozon’s Tout s’est bien passé. Didi Stone Olomide walked for L’Oréal Paris at the latter, and Giabiconi returned for the French beauty brand.

Markus Hansen’s Library for Claude Lévi-Strauss opens in Paris

Filed by Lucire staff/July 3, 2021/13.51



Opening today, the newest addition to the Musée de la Chasse is an exciting permanent installation by artist Markus Hansen entitled Library for Claude Lévi-Strauss, which celebrates one of the fathers of structuralism. Hansen’s career, influenced by the likes of Josef Beuys and the Fluxus movement, spans installation art, painting, photography and architecture. The artist says the new conceptual work represents an ideal library which samples the multiplicity of knowledge and the plurality of sources, concealed under a trellis of feathers. Well worth a look and highly recommended.
   One of the lesser-known treasures of Paris, the museum is home to a noteworthy collection which includes paintings, taxidermy and historic objects, housed in a remarkable historic building located at 62, rue des Archives, in the 3rd arrondissement.
   Claude Lévi-Strauss had an extensive collection of ethnographic art from Brazil, North Africa and North America. He donated 1,478 pieces which are today displayed at the Musée Quai Branly in the 7th.
   Now that Paris is suddenly back in business, the sidewalk tables are filling and the popular museums have reopened. A visit to a smaller museum will mean no crowds and the luxury of leisurely browsing extraordinary rooms and objects. And a first-hand encounter with the incisive installation vision of Markus Hansen is a rare delight in a landscape of overblown hyperbole.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor
