On Monday, Ralph Lauren celebrated its 10th year as official outfitters of the championships at Wimbledon, with a summer cocktail party hosted by British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman and former number-one professional tennis player Boris Becker. It was held at the Kensington Palace Orangery in London and guests enjoyed a live DJ set by Chelsea Leyland, and British-inspired canapés, summer cocktails, Pimms and champagne.
   Ralph Lauren is the first brand to create all the outfits on court in Wimbledon’s 129-year history, including umpires and ball persons.
   Co-hosts of the event were Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, along with Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, the Countess of Mornington, actor Philip Brook, former tennis pro Richard Lewis, CBE, and Ali Spencer-Churchill. Many were adorned in Ralph Lauren and Polo Ralph Lauren: Shulman in a Ralph Lauren Collection navy silk Rylie dress and cashmere cardigan; Christie wore a black skater dress with a mesh panel on top, with a orange nappa leather envelope clutch; Lily James wore a white midi-length shirt dress paired with a gold lizard strappy jean sandal; while Jessica Chastain wore a black high-neck sleeveless dress with white inverted pleats. Actress Emily Mortimer wore a simple white shift dress, while Alice Eve wore a camel-coloured long-sleeve, high-necked dress; Maisie Richardson-Sellers was there looking stunning in a metallic organza shift dress with gathered sleeve detail, Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt looked like the epitome of summer in a yellow sleeveless dress. Of the stylish men present, Boris Becker wore a royal blue suit and former Doctor Who star Matt Smith wore a navy suit, a blue striped shirt and a green tie.
   Other guests included Jeremy Irvine, Lottie Moss, Lady Kitty Spencer, YouTubers Jim Chapman and Tanya Burr, Erin O’Connor, Laura Bailey, Lily Becker, Joanna Vanderham, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Jamie and Ale Murray, Mollie King, Sam Rollinson, Charlotte Wiggins, Lara Millen, Petra Palumbo, Tania Fares, Lady Helen Taylor and Tim Taylor, Lady Kinvara Balfour, Alice Naylor-Leyland, Jessica, Camilla and Emily Staveley-Taylor (the Staves), Ella Catliff, Jenny Halpern and Ryan Prince, Jade Parfitt, Viscount Althorp, Alice Brudendell-Bruce, Charlotte Dellal, Bay Garnett and Tom Craig, Emily Johnston, and Catherine Kallon.—Fenella Clarke

One of polo’s most prestigious matches, the Cartier Queen’s Cup, was held last Sunday at the Windsor Great Park at Guards Polo Club and celebrated the jeweller’s 31st year of polo sponsorship.
   The match was attended by royalty and celebrities alike, led by HM Queen Elizabeth II, who has attended and presented her cup since the ’60s, and HRH Prince Philip. Her Majesty was the embodiment of spring, wearing a pink tweed coat with a pink-and-green floral dress underneath, accompanied by a matching pink hat with a green feather accent and cream gloves. Prince Philip wore a black double-breasted blazer, grey trousers and a burgundy-and-black checked tie to give a pop of colour.
   The match was also attended by the likes of Dame Joan Collins and her husband Percy Gibson, Jerry Hall, Jodie Kidd and Donna Air. Dame Joan was dressed head to toe in pale peach while Hall donned a tailored navy suit with a blue cashmere sweater wrapped around her shoulders, her hair in cascading curls.
   Kidd also wore navy with her blonde hair down. This time it was a tight one-shouldered dress; black and gold flat sandals accompanied the outfit. Air wore a V-neck, midi-length pale pink dress with a white turtleneck underneath. She paired this with a navy Chanel bag and white ankle boots with a black heel.
   Other people there were the sisters Lady Violet Manners and Lady Alice Manners, Lady Violet wearing a white layered midi summer dress with burgundy heels and a sky blue bag. Lady Alice, however, wore a short green sleeveless dress and strapped nude heels, with a cream bag.
   Also in attendance were Lord and Lady March, Amber Le Bon, Rupert Finch and wife Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs, Bear Grylls, Emily Mortimer and Alessandro Nivola, Lilly and Boris Becker, Geneviève Gaunt, Alice Neylor-Leyland, the Marquess and Marchioness of Milford-Haven, Christopher Biggins, Markus Lupfer, Hugo Taylor, Spencer Matthews, the Hon Hilary Weston and Galen Weston, and the Hon Philippa Cadogan. Cartier executive chairman Arnaud Bamberger and Cartier UK managing director Laurent Feniou played host at the event.
   Cartier first sponsored the international day in 1984 and has gone one to sponsor St Moritz Polo, the Cartier International Dubai challenge, the Cartier World Elephant Polo Championship and even the first polo event in Beijing. The Queen’s Cup, however, is a highlight for the sports Ă©lite and spectators alike with previous players including HRH Prince Philip (who played in the final) and HRH Prince Charles (who won the trophy).—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.

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.

Natalie Portman’s directorial dĂ©but, A Tale of Love and Darkness, is an adaptation of Amoz Oz’s novel, looking at the founding of the state of Israel when he was a boy. Wearing a strapless black-and-white Dior dress with a full skirt from the spring–summer 2015 collection, Portman evoked the house’s postwar New Look. Her dress choice was complemented by de Grisogono Chiocciolina briolette-cut diamond earrings.
   Accompanied by Claude Lelouch, Elsa Zylberstein also donned de Grisogono jewellery, namely the Melody of Colours coral-drop earrings and the high jewellery bracelet set with morganites, opals and white diamonds, complementing her pearlescent white gown.
   Sonam Kapoor lit up the red carpet for Gus van Sant’s The Sea of Trees in blue, with her silk gazar and crèpe off-the-shoulder ballgown from Ralph & Russo’s spring–summer 2014 collection. The L’OrĂ©al Paris make-up for her was more distinct than what had been seen in previous days: the Mono Color Riche eye-shadow in 204 Golden Nude and 100 Noir C’est Noir; the Super Liner Mat-Matic eye-liner; and the Color Riche 30 Years lipstick in 229 ClichĂ© Mania.
   Not to be outdone, Li Bing Bing went for another look that conjured up images of grand palaces with a sparkling, sequinned white gown at the première of The Sea of Trees, with the make-up team going pastel, using the Infaillible Matte foundation in vanilla, the indispensable Superstar Mascara in black, Color Riche 30 Years lipstick in Cocorico (330) and Color Riche nail polish in Ocean Porcelaine.
   Andie MacDowell was also wearing Ralph & Russo (from the spring–summer 2015 collection), with her make-up from L’OrĂ©al Paris. Claudia Vieira, Jane Fonda, Miss Universe Switzerland 2014 Laetitia Guarino, Natasha Poly (in Michael Kors) were also there representing the French brand.
   Finally, Fan Bingbing was at the Chopard Trophy Party late on day three, showing her love of white this season, in another Ralph & Russo, increasingly a favourite of celebrities judging by this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Her white silk crèpe off-the-shoulder fishtail gown with silk organza and gazar ruffles was from the spring–summer 2015 haute couture collection.

The Festival de Cannes, the 68th Cannes Film Festival, kicked off Wednesday at the Palais des Festivals, with plenty of glamour from the red carpet, as well as big names. Catherine Deneuve, the iconic French actress, stars in the opening-night film, Le tĂŞte haute (Standing Tall), and appeared before the cameras. In 1964, Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, which put Deneuve on the map, won the Palme d’Or.
   The film deals with juvenile delinquency, and was directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, the first woman to direct the opening-night film since Diane Kurys in 1987 with A Man in Love. Deneuve plays a juvenile court judge, starring with BenoĂ®t Magimel, playing Yann, a youth counsellor, Sara Forestier as the mother who cannot control her son, and Rod Paradot as Malony, the young man out of control.
   Providing even more glamour at the opening ceremony were numerous L’OrĂ©al Paris faces: Fan Bingbing, Doutzen Kroes, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Katrina Kaif, Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede, and Leila Bekhti. John Legend represented the men’s range.
   Fan wore a custom Ralph & Russo couture silk crèpe off-the-shoulder gown inspired by 18th-century Chinese art, with 10,000 Swarovski crystals and hand-embroidered floral motifs. The company said it took 1,000 hours to make.
   Her L’OrĂ©al Paris look complemented the traditional Chinese style, with the Infaillible 24H Matte foundation giving her porcelain skin, and the Superstar mascara and liner, along with the Infaillible Mega Gloss (in 505, Never Let Me Go, a tangerine shade) lifting her eyes and lips.
   Watts’s Elie Saab gown glittered in silver, and featured a feather-covered skirt.
   Academy Award-winning Moore, looking far more youthful than her 54 years, wore a Armani PrivĂ© gown, and gained a smoky eye effect thanks to the Superstar mascara and the Brow Artist Genius kit.
   Karlie Kloss went with one of her favourite labels, Versace, complemented by de Grisogono Sole earrings and the Onde ring; Liya Kebede wore Louis Vuitton with de Grisogono’s Allegra ring and 1 m sautoir necklace; Bar Refaeli, accompanied by Fawaz Gruosi, wore a white Roland Mouret dress with the de Grisogono cabochon-cut India earrings, and Sensuale and Allegra rings; Sienna Miller attended in a stunning column gown by Lanvin; while Natalie Portman, accompanied by her husband Benjamin Millepied, wore Dior couture for an elegant yet still dazzling look, lifted further by de Grisogono’s Gocce earrings, Jane ring, and Tubetto bangle.
   There has been a crack-down on selfies this year at the Festival, just as there had been at the Met Gala earlier this month.

Chanel shows cruise 2015–16 in Seoul, with Gisèle Bündchen, Kristen Stewart, Razane Jammal, Park Shin Hye, CL, Alma Jodorowsky

Chanel’s cruise 2015–16 collection has a stylistic link from what we saw at the ready-to-wear shows earlier this year, with Karl Lagerfeld confident with endowing the French label with plenty of colour and differing textures, though this time, he has looked to the orient for his inspiration.
   Showing on Monday at the Dongdaemum Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul in the presence of an audience that included Gisèle BĂĽndchen, Kristen Stewart, Razane Jammal, Tilda Swinton, Gaspard Ulliel, Alma Jodorowsky, Isabelle Huppert, Rinko Kikuchi, G-Dragon, Taeyang, Ko Ah-Sung, Jung Ryeo-won, Park Shin Hye, Choi Siwon, Sandro Kopp, Gwei Lun Mei, Han Ye Seul, Namie Amuro, Lee Jong Suk, Yoona Lim, and CL, the cruise collection has what Chanel dubs a structured, avant-garde silhouette.
   Gone was the houndstooth of the autumn–winter 2015–16 collection, replaced by highly colourful tweeds and cottons, which injected more pizazz into the silhouette. Lagerfeld also used shantung, linen, tulle and lace. He pulled off patchwork with more elegance than most designers can muster, while stripes and embroideries provided further texture to each look. Instead of the Parisian inspiration from his previous collection, Chanel took the Korean hanbok and moulded it into jackets with rounded shoulders; the collars were also slightly rounded and full, avoiding sharp lines. Skirts are pencil- and straight-cut, while trousers are wide. The sense of volume really came from the textures and layers used, more than the cuts themselves.
   The post-show event saw a performance by DJ Mademoiselle Yulia, followed by a private concert by Cerrone and a further performance by DJ Tim Sweeney.
