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.

Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Ming Xi, Jourdan Dunn, Isabeli Fontana glam up Festival de Cannes’ day 8

Bella Hadid grabbed plenty of attention on day eight of the Festival de Cannes, wearing a red Alexandre Vauthier custom silk wrap gown that left few of the 19-year-old’s curves to the imagination. With a deep neckline and a thigh-high slit, the gown ensured plenty of paparazzi snapped her at the première of La fille inconnue (The Unknown Girl). She narrowly avoided a revealing “wardrobe malfunction” thanks to a red thong—a moment captured by some paparazzi and camera operators. She complemented her Vauthier gown with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and jewellery by de Grisogono.
   Also choosing to go with de Grisogono for jewellery on day eight were Shanghai-born model Ming Xi (奚夢瑤) in a sparkling silver Zuhair Murad holiday 2016 gown and Jourdan Dunn in a Ralph & Russo haute couture spring–summer 2016 white silk gazar ball gown with a hand-painted floral design and crystal and glass beading. Ana Beatriz Barros also chose Ralph & Russo, wearing an asymmetric teal chiffon gown with draped train, as did Chanel Iman that same evening at the Planet Finance Foundation Gala Dinner.
   Irina Shayk, walking the red carpet for L’Oréal Paris, went for a more subtle look up front with her black Miu Miu gown—but round the back were diamante chains and extravagant feather detail on the hems—the perfect contrast. Make-up was again very natural, with L’Oréal Paris’s make-up artists opting for lighter to medium shades in the Brow Artist Genius Kit and the Rosé shade in the Color Riche La Palette. To suit Shayk’s complexion, they chose Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Rosy Beige, and the Glam Bronze Cushion de Soleil. For the eyes, L’Oréal Paris’s False Lash Sculpt in black and Super Liner Black ‘n’ Sculpt gave her movie-star looks. Dame Helen Mirren, Soo-Joo Park and Isabeli Fontana also wowed as L’Oréal Paris ambassadors, and racing driver Lewis Hamilton joined them as the sole male for the brand.
   Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, like Shayk and Hadid, went for a backless gown, and chose a pleated, draped red design from Alexandre Vauthier. Liya Kebede chose an emerald green design from Haider Ackermann, while Alessandra Ambrosio wore Michael Kors.

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 Ossoliński. 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.


















Indie Beauty Expo (IBE): Hollywood’s “independents’ day”

Elyse Glickman/14.23



Clinique, Lancôme and L’Oréal may have been staples on our vanity tables for decades, but there is something about trying the best invention nobody’s heard of yet. The Indie Beauty Expo (IBE), staged at the the Shrine Expo Hall (best known as a venue for rock concerts and award ceremonies) was the place beauty bloggers needed to be to Tweet, Instagram and buzz about the latest and greatest skin, body care, and make-up maverick brands around the globe.
   The Shrine Expo Hall, under the direction of co-founder Jillian Wright (whose client roster includes Kim Kardashian, Ivana Trump and Kristen Wiig) was a feminine garden of delights. The harvest of fresh picks ran the gamut from colour cosmetics to hair care, professional spa lines, anti-ageing remedies, exotic indulgences (of the do-it-yourself home spa variety), vitamin supplements, fragrances and a smattering of gadgets designed to make the daily beauty routine cleaner and more sanitary (Potty Mints, for example, and Spongelle Spongelle Beyond Cleansing soaps, regulars at Doris Bergman’s always fabulous awards season parties).
   While many attendees are not old enough in our estimation to consider and compare the benefits of different anti-ageing remedies, we agree it never hurts to learn what’s out there and start spreading the news!* And with that, we present our picks for the most interesting and innovative goods in this garden among the 150 brands on display (twice as many as 2015, according to sources behind the event).
   Given current beauty trends, we saw a lot of organic oils and locally harvested products, bringing the farm-to-table mood from the restaurant to the vanity table. From argan to moringa, the event was a wellspring of beautifying oil, and with so many new brands vying for our attention, it was inevitable that a few stood out from the pack.

· Be Biotin, bebiotin.com.
· Circ-Cell, designed by a Wyoming entrepreneur for the rigours of mercurial weather: we think this line could be come more relevant in the wake of global warming.
· Cosmedicine: they had us with the rose-flavoured macarons, but we also admired the simply packaged, and user-friendliness of the product designs.
· Crème Collective: move over, Estée Lauder conglomerate! This line brings together definitively 21st century brands including Rituel de Fille.
· Florapy: conceived in California and made in Korea, this line of therapy facial masks (some for emotional well being and others for facial improvements) are made with organic coconut.
· Georgie Beauty: smaller is better, and this line for eyes is as focused as things get, with organic lashes, glues and liners. The founder is now making a portable cream blush, but she knows what she’s looking at in terms of the audience she hopes to reach.
· Glisodin Skin Nutrients: a collection of elaborately well thought-out vitamins and nutritional supplements that stress the importance of beauty from the inside out.
· Kesh: we love argan oil, as well as the direct pitch behind the line’s elegant packaging.
· Meder Beauty Science USA: we admire the way this Swiss line connects the dramatic results of professional in-office treatments with post-treatment home care.
· The Miracle Cream: many companies produce miracles in a jar, but we’re looking forward to testing out this all-body, all purpose cream with its blend of essential oils.
· MSteves: a few years ago, we covered the launch of Mally Steves Chakola’s sweet and simple rose hip oil-focused line, and are pleased she is still going strong.
· Native Atlas Botanical Skincare, handcrafted in small batches with ethically sourced materials gathered from all over the globe. The built-in plant-sourced vitamins and minerals nurture the mind, body, and spirit. Our pick from the line is the Liquid Exfoliant, which helps to refine and restore a clear complexion with blend of black willow and thyme and has been shown to enhance skin cell turnover.
· Nelson J Beverly Hills: one of our favourite local salon owners and colourists launches his own hair care line.
· Pacifica: the packaging is lust-worthy—we admit it. We look forward to trying the to-go make-up removers.
· Patyka, a renowned Parisian beauty house, converted old-school French luxury into exciting new ideas with certified organic formulations, making it the expo’s most elegant offering. The Huile Absolue Skin Booster Serum is the brand’s signature product. The 100 per cent natural serum for face, body and hair is carefully formulated with a powerful concentrate of 12 organic essential oils and plant extracts which effectively help regenerate new skin cells, boost the skin’s youthful resilience and restore a radiant glow.
· Revival Body Care: this collection brings the carefree, feelgood vibes and aromas of the beach anywhere with their collection of scrubs.
· Scentered: many companies are packaging perfectly lovely essential oils, but we love the way this UK company takes the concept to the next level, putting balanced blends into a solid, spill-proof and goof-proof format.
· UnWash turns the shampoo ritual on its head, with the conditioning step coming first.
· Ursa Major: simple, no-nonsense skin care for men and women with bracing aromas.
· Volanté Skincare: many product lines are promising clinic-like results at home, but we were impressed with how well prepared founder Elizabeth Vanderveer was in presenting the befores and afters with her products.
· Yuni is absolute genius. While the line was devised for active people who integrate workouts into their busy day, it is also ideal for transcontinental fliers and workaholics. Pop-up sheets, lotions and muscle relaxers allow you to feel fresh at a moment’s notice. It’s almost like having your entire home bathroom with you. All products combine natural ingredients, modern convenience, and mood-enhancing attributes into some very unique products. The No Rinse Body Cleansing Foam really caught our eye—a waterless solution to instantly refresh and foam away sweat, dirt and odour when you’re in a rush or a shower isn’t available. A blend of neem extract and alœ vera vanishes instantly with no rinse needed. Skin feels pristine and soft. A light aromatic blend of calming essential oils releases stress.—Elyse Glickman, US west coast editor, and Jody Miller, correspondent

* New York beauty sleuths will have their opportunity to survey a variety of emergent beauty brands and products on August 25 at the Waterfront in Manhattan. For more information, visit indiebeautyexpo.com/attend.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wore an extravagant golden Elie Saab gown for the fourth day at the Festival de Cannes, attending the première of The BFG (short for Big Friendly Giant), based on the Roald Dahl book, and directed for Disney by Steven Spielberg.
   Rai Bachchan, easily one of the most photographed women at the Cannes Film Festival, was rivalled by her fellow L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman Blake Lively, who shone in a bright blue Atelier Versace gown and showing off her baby bump once more.
   Rai Bachchan wore lipstick from the L’Oréal Paris Pure Reds collection, with jewellery by Boucheron and shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, marking her 15 years at the Festival.
   Thai actress Araya A. Hargate also represented the French cosmetics’ giant, wearing a Zuhair Murad gown. Bérénice Bejo also chose Versace for her red-carpet walk, Mallika Sherawat wore Georges Hobeika with jewellery by de Grisogono, and Paz Vega wore Stéphane Rolland. Former Miss France Flora Coquerel also attended the première.
   Jordanian lawyer Ola Alfares, Chinese actress–singer Li Yuchun, a very dapper-looking Jing Boran, the Chinese singer, and US drag queen Miss Fame represented L’Oréal Paris in their respective markets.
   It was the first appearance for the company for Thylane Blondeau, the 15-year-old daughter of the recently separated Veronika Loubry and Patrice Blondeau. She would be the youngest “face” from the French brand to appear on the red carpet at Cannes.

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.

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.
   ‘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.
   ‘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 Skarsgård, 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.
