   Kapoor chose a custom pink gown from Elie Saab couture on her first red-carpet appearance for the French cosmetics’ giant, while ‘Champoo’—Hargate—proudly displayed her five-month pregnancy in an Alexis Mabille autumn–winter 2014–15 gown complemented with jewellery by Chopard. MacDowell chose Roberto Cavalli paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and also Chopard jewellery. Chastain went for Christian Dior couture spring–summer 2017, with shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti and jewellery by Piaget. Casta wore a black Yves Saint Laurent autumn–winter 2017–18 dress.
   Blige wore a dress by Reem Acra with jewellery by Avakian.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris said Kapoor’s look used True Match Illuminating Powder (in Icy Glow), Color Riche Nude Palette (pink), Color Riche lipstick (organza), Brow Artist Expert (ebony), Infallible Paint Blush Palette (amber) and Volume Million Lashes mascara.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wowed the Cannes Film Festival crowds at the premiĂšre of Robin Campillo’s Aids drama 120 battements par minute (120 Beats Per Minute) in a stunning strapless red Ralph & Russo gown.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris’s global make-up director Val Garland used True Match foundation (in Amber Gold) and concealer (no. 10) for the Bollywood actress and former Miss World, along with a deep magenta shade for her lips (Color Riche Matte Addiction, no. 430, Mon Jules) paired with a brighter red (no. 346, Scarlette Silhouette), Super Liner Perfect Slim (in Intense Black), and Mega Volume Miss (in Manga Black).
   For the first time, Rai Bachchan brought her daughter, Aaradhya, who rode with her in the Renault van to the Festival. For once the actress was in danger of being upstaged by Aaradhya, dressed in pink and clearly enjoying her princess moment.
   Rai Bachchan’s fellow L’OrĂ©al Paris spokeswomen Araya A. Hargate wore a fuchsia dress from Zuhair Murad’s spring–summer 2017 collection, and Liya Kebede wore a Paco Rabanne design from the autumn–winter 2017–18 collection.
   Ming Xi wore an Albert Ferretti dress complemented by jewellery from de Grisogono (a High Jewellery necklace and earrings with, inter alia, white diamonds and blue sapphires; a High Jewellery bracelet in white gold set in white diamonds and emeralds), and accompanied de Grisogono boss Fawaz Gruosi on the red carpet. Pamela Anderson also chose de Grisogono jewellery, namely the Anelli earrings in pink gold set with white diamonds and the Allegra bracelet in pink gold set with white diamonds.
   Sara Sampaio opted for Giorgio Armani PrivĂ© with jewellery by Avakian, and Kristen Stewart, of course, wore Chanel, from its resort 2018 collection. Kendall Jenner wore a Giambattista Valli dress with Chopard jewellery.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris also released two close-up beauty shots of Rai Bachchan from earlier in the week.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Rihanna among the most glamorous at Festival de Cannes, day three

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan always causes a stir when she heads to the Festival de Cannes, both as a L’OrĂ©al Paris spokeswoman and as an actress in her own right. This year, her powder blue ballroom gown, by Filipino designer Michael Cinco, was covered with beads and featured a massive skirt—comfortably the biggest we’ve seen so far over the last three days.
   Rai Bachchan’s gown was from Cinco’s appropriately named Impalpable Dream of Versailles collection.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris’s global make-up director Val Garland and her team gave the Bollywood actress and former Miss World a look using the company’s True Match foundation (in Amber Gold) and concealer (no. 10) were complemented by Color Riche Matte Addiction (in Greige Perfecto), Infallible Blush paint palette (in Amber), Volume Million Lashes (in Fatale) and Infallible Nudist Lip Paint Off White (no. 208).
   Joining Rai Bachchan on the red carpet were fellow L’OrĂ©al Paris spokeswomen Li Yuchun, Julianne Moore, and Thylane Blondeau. Behind the scenes, meanwhile, were Chompoo Araya A. Hargate and Elle Fanning, who popped into L’OrĂ©al Paris’s Cinema Club on Friday.
   Other head-turning celebrities at the premiĂšre of Netflix’s Okja were Bella Hadid (in Christian Dior, with a Bulgari snake), Rihanna (also in Dior, resplendent in white and looking much like a wedding outfit), Jessica Chastain (in Givenchy) and Lily Collins (in Ralph & Russo), who appears in the film.
   The premiĂšre did not go well for the Netflix film, already the subject of controversy because it was not released into French cinemas. The Meyerowitz Stories, which stars Ben Stiller, is another film purchased by Netflix that will also not be shown on general cinematic release in France.
   Okja was projected at the wrong aspect ratio and suffered from sustained heckling from the audience.

Deepika Padukone kept the glamour stakes high on the second day of the Cannes Film Festival, wearing a Brandon Maxwell gown accessorized with de Grisogono high jewellery earrings in white gold set in white diamonds and a high jewellery bracelet in white gold with white diamonds and emeralds, and Chloë Gosselin heels. But it was 16-year-old Thylane Blondeau, with her 1·2 million Instagram following, who caught plenty of social media attention, wearing Dior with jewellery by Messika.
   Blondeau, as a L’OrĂ©al Paris ambassador, had its global make-up director Val Garland create a look that used the company’s Brow Artist Genius Kit, Smoky Eyes in Marron Glace, Infallible Paint eye-shadow in Breathtaking Brown, Glam Bronze La Terra, Infallible Nudist lip paint, and Volume Million Lashes.
   Emily Ratajkowski got into the Russian mood with a gown by Peter Dundas, again with de Grisogono jewellery, namely the Gocce earrings in white gold set with white diamonds and onyx, and the Allegra ring in white gold and ceramic set with black diamonds. Adriana Lima wore a strapless Naeem Khan gown with a diamond choker; while Lily Donaldson looked elegant and chic in a pink tulle Dior number. This year, how high could the thigh-high splits go? Petra NěmcovĂĄ’s white dress showed glimpses of her white underwear, rivalling Bella Hadid’s look on day one.
   Unilever partied on the Croisette as well last night, with Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott collaborating with the multinational’s Magnum ice-cream, unveiling a Magnum × Moschino bag capsule collection in seven colours. Guest of honour was Cara Delevingne, who stars in Scott’s film for Magnum, with the theme Unleash Your Wild Side. At the celebrations, Cara Delevingne wore an edgy asymmetric black Moschino gown, with a de Grisogono Allegra necklace in white gold and black leather, and Allegra ring in white gold and black ceramic, both set with white diamonds; and a high jewellery ring in white gold and an India ring, both set with white diamonds and onyx.
   Scott said, ‘I’m excited to finally be able to share the Magnum × Moschino bag capsule collection today here in Cannes that we’ve worked so hard on. It’s been such a fun project! The bags are designed to communicate the fun and fearless attitude that both Moschino and Magnum are all about!’
   Delevingne added, ‘I’m a strong believer in being who you want to be, no matter how wild or different that may be viewed by others, so I hope that we inspire others to do the same and embrace a fearless attitude.’

The Festival de Cannes—the Cannes Film Festival—celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, with Deepika Padukone and Bella Hadid getting plenty of attention as they walked the red carpet on day one.
   The first film to premiĂšre at the Palais des Festivals was Arnaud Desplechin’s Les Fantomes d’Ismael (Ismael’s Ghosts), a drama starring Marion Cotillard, Mathieu Amalric and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
   Other celebrities on day one included Elle Fanning, Naomie Harris, Elsa Zilberstein, Hailey Baldwin, Li Yuchun, Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon, Jessica Chastain, Lily-Rose Depp, Emily Ratajkowski, and Sara Pinto Sampaio.
   Padukone, Fanning, Li, Moore and Sarandon were there representing L’OrĂ©al Paris, which celebrates its 20th anniversary at Cannes. Fanning has just begun her role as a spokeswoman for the French giant, and the event also marked Padukone’s first time on the Cannes red carpet. As part of its celebrations, L’OrĂ©al Paris is hosting an outdoor cinema with free screenings of films at Martinez beach.
   L’OrĂ©al Paris has also opened a pop-up boutique, where festival-goers can check out the new red-carpet looks by its new global make-up director Val Garland, access free tutorials, check out the latest ranges, and enter competitions where they can red-carpet tickets. L’OrĂ©al Paris is introducing its limited-edition Red Carpet Color Riche, featuring the Palme d’Or, a collector’s edition. Some of the L’OrĂ©al Paris ambassadors will make appearances at the boutique during the Festival.
   Padukone wore a Marchesa Notte gown with Jimmy Choo heels and clutch, and a de Grisogono high jewellery ring set in white diamonds and a unique pair of earrings in white gold set with white diamonds and rubies. Hadid stunned with a champagne Alexandre Vauthier couture dress with a thigh-high slit, while Fanning wore a cream Vivienne Westwood number. Others opting for similar shades were Lily-Rose Depp (in Chanel) and Emily Ratajkowski (in Twinset by Simona Barbieri): champagne was the colour of choice. Baldwin also wore Twinset by Simona Barbieri, accessorized by de Grisogono Ventaglio earrings, ring and bracelet in pink gold with icy and white diamonds. Sara Pinto Sampaio smouldered in a red Zuhair Murad Couture gown.
   Depp and Iranian film director Asghar Farhadi declared the festival open. Farhadi collected his Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at Cannes, after being caught up in US president Donald Trump’s travel ban earlier this year.
   Andrei Zvyagintsev’s ĐĐ”Đ»ŃŽĐ±ĐŸĐČь (Loveless) was the second film to be screened on day one.

It could not have found a more appropriate location than the ultramodern and plush W Hotel Hollywood for the lively star-studded event.
   While youth reigned supreme (it is MTV, after all), there were as many notable established as well as up-and-comers parading the red carpet. Al McLean of the Backstreet Boys, singer Alli Simpson, actor–comedian JB Smoove, actor Lil Rel Howery (2017 winner), Michelle Visage (2017 winner), Randy Jackson, Rashad Jennings, actor Sam Huntington, Christian Navarro, Princess Love and others were in on the fun.

We love their whimsical apothecary items like Men Don’t Stink, Beard Wash, solid colognes and every woman’s best friend, B’Ver Balm.
   An abundance of sweet treats and beverages were on hand to relieve the appetite worked up on the red carpet. Sweetopia Artisan Chocolates uses and old copper kettle and family recipes for the creamiest, smoothest caramels, truffles and cakes imaginable. Are crave-worth protein bars, shakes and chips even possible? They certainly are thanks to Quest Nutrition. Flavours like Salted Caramel Protein Powder, Sea Salt Protein Chips or the Cookies ‘n’ Cream protein bars ensure healthy eating is never a sacrifice. Press creates delectable, craft-cocktail inspired carbonated drinks, including pomegranate ginger, grapefruit cardamom, blackberry hibiscus and lime lemongrass.

Chanel has announced that actress Kristen Stewart is the face of the new Gabrielle Chanel fragrance, in a film campaign shot by British director Ringan Ledwidge, and a print campaign photographed by Karim Sadli.

There is nothing like the feel and smell of natural, organic products. Tiffany Andersen’s Salts Alive Bath and Body collection is all about being organic, vegan, toxin-free and it’s an absolutely fresh sensation. Mineral cell salts, alƓ vera juice and other healthy ingredients come to life in their range of shampoos, conditioners, body lotion, face and body polish as well as hand soap.

   Trilogy is a skin care line celebrated for its range of natural and highly rich products. Its new Rosapene Radiance Serum helps to repair the user’s skin, working deep within the pores. Sea algĂŠ, alƓ vera and rosapene work together to protect the skin from harmful attributes. Trilogy’s new Rosehip Oil Light Blend strikes a balance to regulate the skin’s oil production while targeting wrinkles and fine lines. The oil penetrates into the skin, leaving it feeling silky, clean and healthy.
   All Good started in 1997 with the simple All Good Goop healing balm that aimed to relieve skin ailments including blisters, scars, cuts, scrapes and more, made exclusively for founder Caroline Duell, as well as her family and friends. Eventually the brand launched All Good Goop to the public, along with a number of other products including lip balms, sunscreens, body lotions and deodorants predominantly based on simple, organic and natural ingredients. Each product has a luxurious, creamy texture and a velvety consistency.



   Gaia Herbs have taken the herbal market by storm with an array of natural and organic products. The MacaBoost, with cacao and ginger or vanilla chai flavours, features energy-boosting supplements that can blend into a daily smoothie for the extra stamina needed to recharge for the day. Another effective powder blend is their Turmeric Boost, where a dose of curcumin aims to support key organs. Gaia Herbs’ Supreme Cleanse is a two-week-long programme that aims to cleanse and relieve the body from waste and toxins. The brand’s thorough Liver Cleanse also incorporates a number of active components such as dandelion, artichoke, black radish and milk thistle to detoxify internally.

The American eco-lifestyle magazine Organic Spa Magazine organizes a biannual event from Los Angeles to New York, bringing media and a number of highly anticipated brands together under one roof. The Conrad Hotel in Lower Manhattan welcomed guests at an event where they can get up close and personal with product representatives as well as brand founders.
   Aura Cacia returned with their pure essential oils and powerful chakra-balancing oils. The chosen scents are designed to awaken all the senses to alleviate the mind and soothe the soul. Frankincense, meroli, myrrh, patchouli and rose produce particularly powerful and robust aromas. KPS Essentials, a luxury skin care line, includes ingredients such as argan, coconut, jojoba seed, rosehip oils, green tea and honey, reviving and restoring skin. SpaRitual, launched by Shel Pink in 2004, embraces an eco-friendly concept. Its new limited-edition Passionfruit Agave body collection include a sugar scrub, exfoliating cleansing oil, nourishing oil for body and hair, as well as a body soufflĂ©. For a gorgeous manicure, SpaRitual also presented its innovative long-lasting nourishing vegan nail polish shade that works to fortify one’s nails while making them grow longer. The blend includes red tea and seaweed extract.
   A number of other brands to discover included Boiron USA, Columbia Skin Care, Cancun Tourism, NeoCell, Riviera Maya, Shire City Herbals’ Fire Cider, MyChelle, Nubian Heritage, Deer Lake Lodge, Rejuva Minerals, and more. While some introduced hair and skin care products, others presented hot-spot zen-like destinations.—Lola Cristall, Paris Editor
