Photographs of actress Riley Keough modelling for de Grisogono at the Grand Hyatt H√ītel Martinez, where she was based during the Festival de Cannes in May 2014, have been released.
   Using one of the suites, Keough modelled wearing various de Grisogono jewellery items, including the latest Allegra line (in Lucire issue 33), as well as designs from the Gocce and Gypsy collections.
   Paris-based Italian photographer Emanuele Scorcelletti, well known for his portraits and his work with luxury brands, photographed Keough.
   The Allegra collection is ‚ÄėDedicated to a new generation of women, who dare to express their radiance, and explore different shapes and jewelled expressions of their individuality,‚Äô says de Grisogono.
   Keough, who is the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, began her modelling career in her teens, and first appeared on an international runway for Dolce & Gabbana.
   Her acting d√©but was in The Runaways (2010), and she soon landed the female lead in The Good Doctor (2011) opposite Orlando Bloom. She has recently completed filming on Mad Max: Fury Road, alongside Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Eva Green previews her Campari 2015 calendar appearance: video and photos

French actress Eva Green is the face of the 2015 Campari calendar, entitled Mythology Mixology. Campari is teasing the calendar with behind-the-scenes images and a video, featuring Green, announcing the project.
   This 16th edition has been photographed by Julia Fullerton-Batten, an acclaimed fine art photographer, and the first female who has shot a Campari calendar.
   The 12 months celebrate Campari’s history and its best loved classic cocktails. Each month tells the story behind the cocktail, with anecdotes and trivia.
   Campari believes that there has been a classic trend over the last decade, and an interest in history, which the calendar attempts to tap into.
   While some may dispute the presence of a classic trend, Campari has been on the pulse in recent years with its calendars. Notably, in 2008, Jessica Alba appeared in its 10th anniversary edition. Other calendar stars include Salma Hayek, Eva Mendes, Milla Jovovich, Pen√©lope Cruz and Uma Thurman.
   Green, whose Penny Dreadful series is currently netting her headlines in the lead role of Vanessa Ives, came to prominence in Bertolucci’s The Dreamers (2002), and as Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006), for which she won a BAFTA. She has recently been seen in 300: Rise of an Empire and will soon be seen in Sin City: a Dame to Kill for.
   ‚ÄėTo work with an iconic worldwide brand such as Campari is an honour and a privilege. There is something very special about this year‚Äôs theme as it strikes a compelling and almost magical balance between the classic and the contemporary. At the root of each image is this rich sense of history behind each of Campari‚Äôs best-loved cocktails but they are presented in a way that is ultra-modern, exuding imagination and style. It‚Äôs a thing of incredible beauty and clearly shows that whilst some of these recipes are over 100 years old, they are still relevant to and adored in today‚Äôs world,’ said Green in a release.
   Fullerton-Benton is known for her series, Teenage Stories (2005), which followed the transition of a teenage girl into womanhood. Campari says that the photos will carry her hallmarks of creative settings, unusual locations and cinematic lighting.
   ‚ÄėCampari has always had an inherent ability to recreate itself and keep the brand image fresh, inspiring and imaginative‚ÄĒa goal I constantly strive towards in my own work, too. This year‚Äôs theme was an interesting challenge, as there was an important job to do in terms of taking historical anecdotes and invigorating them with a modern edge. I‚Äôm confident we managed to strike that delicate balance with this year‚Äôs imagery,’ says Fullerton-Batten.
   Bob Kunze-Concewitz, CEO of Gruppo Campari says, ‘Though there has always been a sense of timelessness around our classic cocktails, we‚Äôve been hearing reports from bartenders all over the world that there has been a surging popularity for classic recipes like the Negroni and the Americano. This year‚Äôs Campari Calendar is designed to celebrate those enduring recipes and the heritage behind them, so we‚Äôre very much looking forward to unveiling it later in the year.’

Coty Prestige has launched its latest fragrance, Chlo√© Love Story, at a rooftop cocktail party on Wednesday at the l’Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, with actress Cl√©mence Po√©sy the centre of attention as the fragrance’s muse.
   Po√©sy was joined by guests including Rachida Brakni, Maria Jos√©e Croze, G√©raldine Pailhas, M√©lanie Thierry, Karin Viard, Anne Marivin, Hafsia Herzi, Jos√©phine Japy, Jeanne Damas, Jennifer Neyt, and Catherine Baba.
   Jean Mortier, president of Coty Prestige, and Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, CEO of Chlo√©, hosted the function, alongside Chlo√© creative director Clare Waight Keller, and M√©lanie Laurent, who directed the TV spot revealed last night.
   The spot features the song ‘Mi Amor’, performed by Vanessa Paradis.
   Christine and the Queens provided live music at the venue, which was decorated with a metallic structure, inspired by the fragrance’s packaging in the shape of a lock-shaped fla√ßon. DJ Nouvelle Vague followed.
   The lock motif has been inspired by the Pont des Arts in Paris, which is decorated with padlocks.
   The event tapped into old-fashioned motifs of Paris, with Citro√ęn 2CVs and a boat on the Seine serving as guest transport.
   The fragrance was developed by Anne Flipo, who had previously worked on Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia, Alexander McQueen MyQueen, Donna Karan Woman, and L‚ÄôHomme Yves Saint Laurent. It is her first scent for Coty.
   Chlo√© Love Story features orange blossom, neroli and jasmine stephanotis. It follows the signature Chlo√© fragrance, which is also fronted by Po√©sy in its marketing.
   The eau de parfum will retail from September.

Amanda Seyfried is VIP at Cl√© de Peau Beaut√©’s global launch event in Tokyo

Ken Ishii

Amanda Seyfried, whose star continues to be on the ascent this year (we’ve spotted her in Lucire TV recently, too), has attended her first live 2014 event for the Shiseido-owned brand Cl√© de Peau Beaut√©, this time in its home market of Japan.
   In Tokyo on Monday, Seyfried was present for Cl√© de Peau’s latest press announcement, with general manager Keiichi Fujii launching its Synactif line. It comprises colour make-up that features what it calls ‘a mysterious ‚Äúbeauty of a gaze”, more specifically a ‚Äúdrama of the eyes‚ÄĚ, which is completed by taking on the infinite brilliance of the heavens’, and a base make-up with the concept of ‘putting the skin in the lead role’.
   Seyfried’s on-stage Q&A helped give Cl√© de Peau’s lofty statements a more down-to-earth quality. She then posed with guests after the event.
   She last appeared live for the brand in December 2013, with a charity dinner in Seoul.

Interviewer: What is your impression of Japan and Tokyo, after coming back here again?
Amanda Seyfried: I love Japanese culture. It is so refined and beautiful. Japanese women have such beautiful skin. The women in Tokyo, in particular, are so fashionable, They give me a lot of useful hints and ideas. It’s a shame I can’t stay here longer this time, but I always wish I had more opportunities to learn about all the wonderful aspects of Japan, and about its traditions. For place, of course I like Tokyo. Recently, I have been interested in Kyoto. I have a particular respect for its beautiful streets, history and culture. I also love Japanese food.

What do you think is the key point of your make-up today?
I had my look made up with Cl√© de Peau Beaut√©‚Äôs eyeshadow for autumn‚Äďwinter this year, and the new foundation. I think it helped me enhance the charm of mature woman. I love it.

What is the secret to keeping your beauty?
I always stay very physically active, I drink a lot of water, and, more than anything, I use Cl√© de Peau Beaut√© every day! I think that being happy and fulfilled is the most vital thing to bringing out women’s beauty. For me, what is most important is the time I spend with my family and my dog, Finn. That, and always taking on new challenges.

Cannes day ten: Kristen Stewart, Chlo√ę Grace Moretz, Araya A. Hargate, Bianca Balti at premi√®res

It’s day ten and the penultimate day of the Festival de Cannes.
   Clouds of Sils Maria, the new film with Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chlo√ę Grace Moretz, Johnny Flynn and Hanns Zischler, directed by Olivier Assayas, had positive reviews and was regarded as a strong conclusion to the films in competition at Cannes.
   Binoche plays an ageing star, Maria, with Stewart as her PA, and Moretz a young actress who has been cast in a remake of the film that brought Maria her original fame. In the remake, Maria is asked to play the older lover.
   Assayas comfortably directs the film focusing on the dynamics between the three principal actors, and especially between Binoche and Stewart.
   Among our videos are star Chlo√ę Grace Moretz, on making fun of Hollywood and subverting the genre, and the red-carpet premi√®re for the film, which features Stewart, Binoche, Moretz, Assayas, and Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Amy Willerton and Bianca Balti at the Palais des Festivals.
   Ken Loach, who had his Jimmy’s Hall premi√®re on day nine, is interviewed below on his work, while Tarantino, in Cannes celebrating 20 years since Pulp Fiction brought him to prominence when he won the Palme d’Or and the 50th anniversary of Sergio Leone‚Äôs spaghetti western genre, talks about writing his forthcoming film.
   In addition to Sils Maria and Pulp Fiction, the cameras caught Canadian singer Kiesza (with two Montblanc full pav√© bracelets in white‚Äďred gold and diamonds and a full pav√© ring), Araya A. Hargate, Cl√°udia Vieira and Li Yuchun (śĚéŚģáśė•).

The Cannes Film Festival’s seventh day is Aishwarya Rai’s day

The Festival de Cannes’ seventh day’s most talked-about red-carpet film was the Dardenne brothers’ Deux jours, une nuit, starring Marion Cotillard. The legendary Sophia Loren joined the brothers on the red carpet, as did former Miss World-turned-actress Aishwarya Rai, in a stunning gold Roberto Cavalli gown, and actors Aurelien Wiik and Jimmy Jean-Louis, with Montblanc timepieces on show.
   Cotillard plays a working-class wife and mother fighting to keep her job at a solar panel company in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s latest film. Fabrizio Rongione plays her husband.
   If she fails to persuade her colleagues to vote for her retaining her job, then her two children’s welfare is at risk, and the family will have to move into state housing.
   Deux jours, une nuit is in the main competition at the Cannes Film Festival and has received largely positive reviews for its realistic portrayals and the very real concern many families have over their modern work lives.
   Rai was the only L’Or√©al Paris ambassador on the red carpet on day seven that we spotted. Meanwhile, she has another red-carpet appearance scheduled for day eight, and will co-host the AmFAR Gala with her husband Abhishek Bachchan. Bachchan had Tweeted that Rai had not slept for 52 hours prior to her red-carpet appearance, and applauds her poise at Cannes.
   Some of the other day seven clips can be found in our round-up yesterday, including the arrivals of Ryan Gosling and Matt Smith.
   Rai’s compatriot and fellow L‚ÄôOr√©al Paris ambassador, Sonam Kapoor, appeared on the red carpet during day six.

An extra-glam Blake Lively was there to support husband Ryan Reynolds on day three of the Festival de Cannes, as his film, The Captive, directed by Atom Egoyan, had its red-carpet premi√®re. Reviews were not positive for the film, dealing with child sex abuse, while Jessica Hausner’s Amour fou fared better among critics. How to Train Your Dragon 2, screening out of competition, also had its premi√®re on day three.
   Egyptian celebrity Arwa, Heike Makatscho, In√®s de la Fressange (in a striking red), Lithuanian actress Ingeborga DapkŇęnaitńó, and Rosario Dawson were among the other faces on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on day three. L’Or√©al Paris notes that de la Fressange’s look once again used its Volume Million Lashes, in Excess Black, its Color Riche Le Kajal in brown, and a very red Color Riche lipstick.
   On a Friday that saw the alcohol multinationals battle for attention, official Festival de Cannes sponsor Chivas Regal, a Pernod Ricard brand, hosted its Charles Finch Annual Filmmakers’ Dinner benefiting the FilmAid charity, with actor Edward Norton playing host, at the H√ītel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Cap d’Antibes. Guests included former Doctor Who star Matt Smith, Bond alumni Mads Mikkelsen and Gemma Arterton, Naomi Watts, L√©a Seydoux, Harvey Weinstein, Gael Garcia Bernal, Bryan Ferry, Julian Schnabel, Gong Li, and Daniel Br√ľhl (Rush). Alfonso Cu√°ron (the Oscar-winning director of Gravity) and Christopher Hampton, CBE (screenwriter of Dangerous Liaisons and Atonement) were honoured at the event. Previous recipients include Bernardo Bertolucci, Terry Gilliam, Bertrand Tavernier and Jeremy Thomas.
   FilmAid goes to refugee camps and communities affected by disaster, its filmmakers using film to bring life-saving information on health and food safety, as well as hope.
   Norton presented a cheque of $100,000 to Simon Goff of FilmAid at the event. He said, ‘It is a great pleasure to be here tonight at the Charles Finch Filmmakers’ Dinner, sponsored by Chivas Regal 25. To be able to present FilmAid with such a generous donation on behalf of Chivas Regal is a great honour. Philanthropy and activism are causes hugely important to me. Increasingly, we are seeing brands addressing social and environmental issues more than ever before.’
   Goff stated, ‘At FilmAid we witness the power of film every day‚ÄĒto change lives, shape communities and give voice to refugees. We are very grateful to Chivas Regal for their ongoing support and commitment to our charity.’
   Friday night saw Rita Ora perform at the Club Albane, overlooking la Croisette, for a party thrown by Belvedere Vodka, with guests including Jason Statham, Rosario Dawson, Neneh Cherry, Theophilus London, Hofit Golan, Victoria Bonya, and Sarah-Jane Crawford. The event, hosted by Belvedere Vodka president Charles Gibb, served up cocktails created by Claire Smith, the brand’s Head of Spirit and Creation. Both Ora and London were presented with the exclusive Belvedere Vodka Silver Sabre laser-cut edition.
   Ora performed her hits as well as new tracks from her September 2014 album, I Will Never Let You Down, which features Prince and Gwen Stefani, and the skills of DJ Calvin Harris.

Cannes day two: Timbuktu, Sonia Rolland, Blake Lively, Inès de la Fressange, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Zoe Saldana

Day two saw the premi√®re of Timbuktu, in contention for a Palme d’Or at this year’s Festival de Cannes. The film deals with the Islamist occupation in northern Mali, with subject matter so sensitive it forced the director, Abderrahmane Sissako, to break down during the press conference. Actress Toulou Kiki had a similar reaction at the conference.
   Sissako says, in the translation, ‘I cry in the place of those who experienced this real suffering. Real courage is those who lived these moments on a daily basis. They waged a silent combat.’
   The story revolves around a family who lived in Timbuktu after it fell to jihadists. They feared death by stoning and lashings, and other crimes against humanity. Sissako’s tale tries to humanize the jihadists, too, to make them recognizable to all audiences.
   Cameras caught former Miss France-turned-actress Sonia Rolland, actor Yassine Azzouz (both donning jewellery from Montblanc), Blake Lively (in Chanel), In√®s de la Fressange, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede and Zoe Saldana at events.
   Lively had a lighter, more golden look for her second day at Cannes, using L’Or√©al Paris’s gold and nude make-up. Kebede used the Cannes 2014 edition of L’Or√©al Paris’s Volume Million Lashes, with the Color Infaillible in Brown Sensation and a rich raspberry lipstick; de la Fressange went with bronze and gold foundation and powder; and Moore used the Cannes Volume Million Lashes as well as the Age Perfect Cell Renew serum.
