Sonam Kapoor chose a Ralph & Russo column gown with a feathered cape and train for day 6 on the red carpet at the Festival de Cannes, for the première of Loving. Once again, L’Oréal Paris make-up artists went for a natural look for Kapoor, with the Superstar mascara (in Red Carpet), the Super Liner (in So Couture) and the Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Porcelaine: if you look good in it, why change it? They varied her L’Oréal Paris Color Riche eye-shadow to a Lilas Chéri shade, while the lipstick was another natural Color Riche shade, no. 231. Her jewellery was from Bulgari Haute Joaillerie, with a necklace comprising 16 diamonds.
   Fellow ambassador Xiao Wen Ju (appearing for the French cosmetics’ giant for the first time) wore a cobalt blue Azzedine Alaïa dress with transparent effects, and excitedly told her 200,000 Instagram followers about the experience; German singer Lena Meyer-Landrut wore Yves Saint Laurent to the première and showed a lot of thigh; and actress Grażyna Torbicka wore a stylish gown by Tomasza OssoliÅ„ski. La La Anthony wore a Gauri & Nainika gown with a de Grisogono Melody of Colours ring.

Sometimes, you can find style at the Festival de Cannes away from the red carpet, and Chloë Sevigny looked fashionable with her Chanel black and silver resin bag from its Paris in Rome 2015–16 collection. But as usual the real action was on the red carpet where we saw sumptuous gowns and jewellery.
   With much anticipation, Sonam Kapoor lit up the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival première of Mal de Pierres (From the Land of the Moon, adapted from the novel Mal di Pietre and in competition), when she headed there representing L’Oréal Paris, wearing an asymmetrical white dress by Ralph & Russo, along with L’Oréal Paris make-up that’s very on-trend this season: the Super Liner Smokissime Red Carpet Collection and the Superstar mascara, also in a shade called Red Carpet. Going for a more nude look, Kapoor’s make-up artist went for Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Porcelaine, the Accord Parfaît blush in Rose Éclat, and the Color Riche eye-shadow in Marron Glacé.
   Compatriot Aishwarya Rai, who has been wowing audiences already at Cannes, appeared wearing a light pink Rami Kadi dress, but what got people talking was her bright purple lipstick—which husband Abhishek Bachchan has gone on record to say he loves. She complemented her look with de Grisogono’s High Jewellery pink gold tourmalines and emerald ring.
   Araya A. Hargate went for a stunning, black-and-white Jean Paul Gaultier, one of the best red-carpet showcases for the French designer that we have seen. L’Oréal Paris’s make-up artists went with the Superstar Red Carpet mascara again and the same blush, which worked for Hargate’s look, but worked their magic with the Super Liner (in So Couture), Infaillable Powder in Beige Sable for the foundation, and Color Riche L’Ombre Pure (in Snow in Megève) for another natural look. Highlights were provided by L’Oréal Paris’s Color Riche La Palette in red.
   Fellow ambassador Li Yuchun appeared in a three-piece Givenchy suit, while Heike Makatsch wore a Kaviar Gauche pink silk jumpsuit. Iris Berben wore a form-fitting, fringed gown by Talbot Runhof, and Miss Fame donned a black dress with tulle, but had toned down her look from the Zac Posen gown the day before.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Blake Lively, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Kristina Bazan turn up the glam at Cannes’ day 3

Lucire staff/9.44



Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a woman whose presence we await with anticipation at Cannes: you know whatever she wears is going to set a high standard for eveningwear at the annual film festival.
   This year was no exception as the Bollywood actress attended the 69th Festival de Cannes—her 15th—at the première of Ma loute (Slack Bay) wearing an embellished, shimmering gold Ali Younes haute couture gown with a matching veil on her shoulders.
   Blake Lively hid her baby bump with an oh-so-glamorous (perhaps more so than day one’s) and extravagant pastel blue gown from Vivienne Westwood with ruffled folds (made from reportedly 30 m of fabric), sequins, and embroidered flowers.
   Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, who has moved on from her estranged husband Jean-Bernard, showed up at the Ma loute première wearing a strapless Naeem Khan gown with colourful floral embroidery, and jewellery by de Grisogono, namely the brand’s India bracelet in pink gold with opals and white diamonds, ring and earrings.
   And although it was Kayture’s Kristina Bazan’s fourth appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, it was her first as a L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman. She wore an Alberta Ferretti two-piece gown for the première on Friday.

The L’Oréal Paris “signature faces” were in force on day two of the Festival de Cannes, showing the latest looks from the French firm, and how its make-up has it covered regardless of age. Blogger and singer Kristina Bazan, 22, of Kayture made her Cannes début for the brand at the Money Monster première, a significant move for L’Oréal Paris as it taps into modern media and a digital audience. She wore Elie Saab with Chopard jewellery. Joining her at Money Monster, directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts (viewers who watched our live feed would have caught the press conference yesterday) were Naomi Watts, 47 (in Michael Kors accessorized by Giuseppe Zanotti shoes) and Julianne Moore, 55, wearing Louis Vuitton. Eva Longoria had attended the première of Café Society wearing Pamela Rolland.
   This weekend, Lucire will share more details about how the ladies got their make-up looks—watch this space. There’s more at our embedded live feed till then.

   The new 141 m² store will be situated on Long Acre alongside Barbour, L. K. Bennett and COS, and will stock the company’s jewellery and watches.
   â€˜We are delighted to be opening our Swarovski boutique in St Martin’s Courtyard. By positioning ourselves at the heart of one of London’s key shopping scenes, our unique store concept and beautiful displays will hopefully inspire and introduce a new set of fashionable customers to the Swarovski brand,’ said Hayley Quinn of Swarovski UK and Ireland.

   The newest label of the three, Isaac & Lulu, is a more fashion-forward brand, named for head designer Ange Todd’s daughter Lulu and Caroline Sills’ grandson Isaac, and is described as being feminine and youthful.

Lucire TV: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hike to monastery on Bhutanese cliff face

Lucire staff/12.35


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to Paro Taktshang, Bhutan, on the second day of their royal visit to the kingdom. They had flown in from India on Thursday.
   Paro Taktshang, also known as the Tiger’s Nest monastery, is located on a cliff face, 3,000 m above sea level. The royal couple walked 900 m to the revered site, taking three hours to reach the monastery, built in 1692.
   The Duchess wore a Jaeger white blouse, Really Wild khaki leather waistcoat, khaki Zara jeans, and her 10-year-old, calf-length Penelope Chilvers boots.
   â€˜It was quite tough on the way up,’ noted Prince William. The Duchess said that it was a ‘great way to burn off the curry.’
   The Prince’s father, the Prince of Wales, half-completed the hike in 1998.
   In the evening, they attended a reception for British nationals and people with close ties to the UK that evening. The Duchess wore a red gown with a poppy print by Beulah, from its spring–summer 2015 collection. The poppy is Bhutan’s national symbol.

Gwyneth Paltrow stars in Tous’s fourth instalment of Tender Stories, promoting its spring–summer jewellery

Lucire staff/4.16



Gwyneth Paltrow stars in the fourth instalment of Tous’s Tender Stories, promoting its spring–summer 2016 jewellery collection.
   The Spanish-headquarted firm alerted non-Spanish media to the new film earlier this week, although it had been uploaded to YouTube the week before.
   The film has been created by SCPF, the Spanish creative agency.
   Paltrow, playing Alice, starts each day and hears a male voice, but he is not seen with her. Is she hearing a spirit? Is it her conscience talking to her?
   Without spoiling the ending, this latest instalment in Tous’s Tender Stories campaign is about how distance can be bridged when a loved one is far away.
   It does leave us with a few questions—watch the video to find out.
   Víctor Carrey of Puente Aéreo Films produced the film, as with earlier entries in the campaign.

Rihanna has started the week on a high, as she is now neck in neck with the Beatles for the number of weeks spent at number one, thanks to her song ‘Work’, featuring Drake. It is her eighth week on the Billboard Hot 100.
   At the same time, her newest Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection (hashtagged #FentyxPuma) becomes available this month, after its début at New York Fashion Week. Rihanna serves not only as a brand ambassador but as a creative director for the brand. The collection takes its inspiration from Japanese street culture and fashion.
   The singer has previewed some of the offerings from the Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection on her website, noting the availability of the fur slide on April 22.
   Her chart-topping success now puts her ahead of icons such as Michael Jackson, while she rivals the Fab Four and Mariah Carey.
   Rihanna had Tweeted on April 4 about her seventh week on the Hot 100, crediting her faith for her success, something she has never been shy about doing.
