Of all the celebs that Chanel could have talked up during the Festival de Cannes, only two appeared on our radar: Gaspard Ulliel and Lily-Rose Depp. It wasn’t that big a surprise that the teenager has been announced as the new face of Chanel No. 5 l’Eau, a new fragrance created by Olivier Polge.
   Depp, 16, is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, and is already the face of the Chanel Pearl eyewear collection launched last September.
   She had already been spotted at Cannes on the 13th for the release of La danseuse (The Dancer), in which she appears, kitted out in Chanel, wearing a black silk bustier dress from its autumn–winter 2016–17 prêt-à-porter collection and shoes from the brand; her make-up was exclusively Chanel as well.
   The announcement from Chanel came at the same time Depp released it on her Instagram, telling the world, ‘I’m so excited to announce that I am the face of the new Chanel Number 5 L’EAU!’
   The new campaign will break in the autumn and will be directed by Johan Renck.
   Other than La danseuse, directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto, Depp will star in two other films: Yoga Hosers, directed by Kevin Smith; and Planetarium directed by Rebecca Zlotowski.
   Paradis has helmed her share of advertising campaigns, including for H&M’s Conscious Collection, and Chanel itself.

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.

Indulging in nostalgia: new Catalina Island Museum opening

Day trippers appreciate the southern California destination Catalina Island, easily accessible from Los Angeles. You take the ferry boat from Long Beach, cross the channel, and in about an hour, land in the car-free heritage hamlet of Avalon Harbor. There, nothing has changed for years. Long a haunt of Hollywood celebrities and their international guests, Catalina thrives on the tourist trade. In days of yore the allure was deep-sea fishing and exhibition games at the summer home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Today the menu includes boutique shopping, dining and people-watching, nature trekking, mountain biking, zip lines and excellent snorkelling.
   The big news this season is the grand opening of the Ada Blanche Wrigley Schreiner Building, new home of the Catalina Island Museum, located at 217 Metropole Avenue, an easy walk from the ferry terminal. Two gala weeks of celebration will occur from June 18 to July 4. A gem of a museum, the institution is devoted to art, culture and history, and the sparkling new facility houses a fine collection of cultural artifact, ceramics, rare photography and nostalgia. A launch exhibition features recently discovered photos of pin-up model Bettie Page, taken in Miami by photographer Bunny Yeager in the 1950s. Other events scheduled include VIP receptions, and Tibetan sand-painting in the skylit atrium. A very reasonable membership to the Museum brings a host of benefits, well worth the charitable contribution. For more information visit www.catalinamuseum.org.—Stanley Moss, Travel Editor

Australian actress Margot Robbie is the new face of Calvin Klein’s latest women’s fragrance, Deep Euphoria Calvin Klein.
   The Coty fragrance will début in August, with Robbie appearing in print and on TV. It builds on the goodwill of the existing Calvin Klein Euphoria fragrance.
   â€˜Ms Robbie perfectly embodies the modern femininity of the empowered deep euphoria woman that we believe will resonate with women around the world,’ said Vincent Brun, senior vice-president of global marketing for Calvin Klein Fragrances at Coty Inc.
   â€˜We are thrilled to work with Ms Robbie on this exciting addition to the Calvin Klein Fragrances portfolio,’ said Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer for Calvin Klein, Inc. ‘Her beauty and talent is an expression of the incredible legacy of women who have been captured in Calvin Klein campaigns over the years.’
   Robbie first came to prominence with her role in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, and had the female lead in Focus, opposite Will Smith. She also appeared briefly in The Big Short, based on the Michael J. Lewis book. She will appear this summer as Jane Porter in The Legend of Tarzan opposite Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, and as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, which reunites her with Smith, and which also stars Jared Leto.
   She follows in the footsteps of Kate Moss, Scarlett Johansson, Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova, Rooney Mara, Diane Krüger and Doutzen Kroes.

Actress Katrin Heß the latest to pose nude for PETA, promoting veganism

In the spirit of PETA’s earlier campaigns featuring celebrities who would rather go naked than wear fur, German actress Katrin Heß has posed nude to promote a vegan diet.
   Heß has long been public about her love of animals, running a prize draw last year for a rescue dog.
   Last week, Heß teased fans on her Facebook and Instagram, saying that she would be posing for PETA Deutschland. The German arm of the worldwide anti-animal cruelty group revealed her promotional image today.
   Heß said, ‘My choice to be vegan is not a trend, but a conscious decision for me and my love of animals. Since I do not eat animal products any more, I look at my surroundings very differently. For example, I finally understand that not only dogs, but cows and pigs, are sentient individuals … Every animal has the right to a happy and full life.’
   PETA Deutschland notes that 800 million animals are slaughtered or die in Germany alone for the meat, dairy and egg industries, and thousands of millions of fish suffocate on the decks of fishing boats or are crushed in nets.
   It refers German visitors to its Veganstart website, www.veganstart.de.
   The promotional image was shot by photographer Marc Rehbeck. Make-up was by Emile van Tile, using Paul Mitchell products.
   The shoot’s release, along with a behind-the-scenes video, coincides with the return of Heß in RTL’s Alarm für Cobra 11: die Autobahnpolizei TV show, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in March. It will reach its 300th episode in 2016, although its 291st was promoted as the 300th by the network.
   In anticipation of the anniversary, the network over-enthusiastically removed fan videos that it did not even own from a Facebook group last month, under penalty of perjury.
   Heß joins celebrities such as Christy Turlington, Pamela Anderson, Charlotte Ross, Tamara Ecclestone, Christian Serratos, and Eva Mendes in posing nude for PETA.

Kasia Smutniak launches Mya special edition of Lancia’s last car, the Ypsilon, at Spazio Arôme in Milano

Jack Yan/12.09



We might as well enjoy it while it lasts, because this is the last Lancia.
   With the demise of the Delta—one of our favourites—in 2014, there’s a single model line left for the fabled Italian brand: the Ypsilon. After that, Lancias will be no more, the 110-year-old brand being consigned to history as Fiat kills it off.
   The Ypsilon is effectively the successor to the old Autobianchi superminis such as the A112 and Y10, a marque which had also disappeared, after once being the brand where Fiat tried out new concepts such as hatchbacks and front-wheel drive.
   Not even a brand that has had cars such as the Aurelia, Fulvia and Gamma coupés, Stratos and Beta Montecarlo can survive a lack of attention, and the Mya is one of the last editions of Ypsilon that will wear the Lancia badge.
   Fiat’s now busy, of course, with profitable Jeeps and the renaissance of Alfa Romeo, although it still pumped some money into an event in Milano for the Lancia Ypsilon Mya at the Spazio Arôme.
   This special edition sees Polish actress Kasia Smutniak (known to Anglophone audiences for the actioner From Paris with Love) as its spokeswoman, succeeding other Lancia faces such as Carla Bruni.
   The launch used video mapping imaging techniques behind Smutniak, projecting graphics on to real surfaces. Lancia says it sees the Ypsilon Mya as a ‘second home’, with Antonella Bruno, head of Lancia for EMEA even interviewing Debora Conti, a life coach, on the relationship between space and emotion, and Fire Cars’ Annacarla Giusti confirming that the car has style and elegance.
   Admittedly, the tipo 846 Ypsilon, which has been around since 2011, has aged remarkably well, and the shape still has a certain elegance to it. The interior features Alcantara and a denim-look fabric. The exterior sees the addition of two shades—though they are both grey. Ardesia Grey is standard, and a three-layer Lunare Grey comes as an option. Neve White, Vulcano Black and Blu di Blu are also available from the regular Ypsilon line, which sees a palette of 12 colours.
   To give it a subtle lift, there is a satin finish on the front bumper, the lower grille inserts, door mirrors, door handles, the Ypsilon badge on the tailgate, and the Mya logo on the wheel arches.
   The Ypsilon features at the Spazio Arôme this weekend, and that of April 23–4.—Jack Yan, Publisher

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.
