Actress Mila Kunis, who has promoted her association with Gemfields enthusiastically since becoming its brand ambassador, appears in the company’s new film, directed by Jeff Burton.
   Gemfields, which celebrated a major ruby find in Mozambique last month, continues to promote the gemstones in its latest spot, with Kunis wearing designs by FabergĂ©, Georg Jensen, Spinelli Kilcollin, Miiori and Gyan of Jaipur.
   The responsibly sourced Mozambican rubies from Cabo Delgado that feature reflect, refract and shimmer in close-ups and in shots where they come into focus, giving them a mysterious effect.
   In a release, the actress said, ‘Working on this film with Gemfields and Jeff Burton was an amazing experience. I was given the opportunity to try and capture the allure and passion that rubies evoke in an unexpected way. I believe it will help to inspire a whole new generation to fall in love with this rarest of gemstones.’
   Burton is a well respected photographer who has worked on campaigns for Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent and CĂ©line, among many others, and his work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Barbican Centre in London. It has been published in Vogue Paris, Vanity Fair, NumĂ©ro, and The New York Times.
   Gemfields says its Montepuez ruby mune in Mozambique is believed to be one of the largest sources of responsibly sourced rubies in the world.
   The film can be viewed in full at www.gemfields.co.uk/rubies. A version appears below.

Lucire’s Instagram round-up, June 28

With so much going on in the fashion world 24–7 we at Lucire thought you might need a quick Instagram update on what’s been happening in the lives of models and designers in the last week as we chronicle this world.
   With the spring–summer men’s runway shows in the last couple of weeks, most of the designers have runway shots or close-ups of details: we see that in Vivienne Westwood, Gucci and Valentino’s photos. Moschino released this beautiful illustration by Natalia Sanabria of Daphne Groeneveld in a look from their men’s show.
   The models’ Instagrams are a bit more interesting: Gigi Hadid and Liu Wen are giving us a sneak peak into their different photo shoots, the former with her sister and latter a shot of herself from Vogue. Cara Delevingne’s latest doesn’t have much to do with fashion at all: she is traveling around the world at the moment, promoting her new movie, Paper Towns. Kendall Jenner was also promoting something a little unexpected: a signature lipstick collaboration with none other than EstĂ©e Lauder, whom Jenner now represents.—Fenella Clarke

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Ralph & Russo Couture dove grey silk gazar layered ball gown with crystal, feather, perspex and velvet embellishments, from the house’s autumn–winter 2014–15 collection, was the talk of Cannes yesterday, as the Bollywood star attended the première of Youth, the new film from Neapolitan director Paolo Sorrentino. She wore minimal make-up, too, with L’OrĂ©al Paris noting that her beauty look was relatively simple: Glam Bronze in Eau de Soleil, Super Liner So Couture in black, and Color Riche 30 Years in Nuit Blanche (231). Rai Bachchan proved the old adage: it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.
   Fellow L’OrĂ©al Paris faces were there, too. Thai actress Araya A. Hargate, a huge draw for southeast Asian audiences, went for a tiered look, too, but with a more floral style as she chose Giambattista Valli for her second appearance on the Cannes red carpet. Those familiar with this season’s L’OrĂ©al Paris products won’t be surprised to see Superstar Mascara being part of her make-up, as well as the Superstar Eye Liner; la Palette in Beige and Infaillible Mega Gloss, in You Know You Love Me (509) gave Hargate her summer movie-star looks.
   Soo-Joo Park (the platinum blonde Korean star made her first appearance for 2015), Barbara Palvin (with a more startling look this season, using bold, dark eyelashes and eye-liner, including L’OrĂ©al’s Miss Manga Punky mascara for that extra volume), Doutzen Kroes (a classic beauty, with a more natural look, with only a very light blush complementing VML So Couture in black, the Superstar Eye Liner, and the Brow Artist Plimper; finished off with the Color Riche 30 Years in Greige Amoureux), Karlie Kloss (in Louis Vuitton, with de Grisogono Allegra ring and bracelet and tubetto Gypsy earrings), Lara Stone (in a dark metallic Versace dress), Jane Fonda, and Megan Gale were out in force, too.
   De Grisogono, still on a high since its Divine party on Tuesday night, noted that its jewellery was the choice of Izabel Goulart (in Azzedine AlaĂŻa, with jewellery totalling 60 ct in diamonds and rubies). Chanel Iman had appeared earlier in the week wearing de Grisogono’s titanium earrings set with diamonds and pearls, and sparkled her way on to the red carpet yesterday in a red, strapless Donna Karan gown.
   Finally, behind the scenes, Eva Longoria celebrated her first decade with L’OrĂ©al Paris, and the company threw her a party to commemorate the event.

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.

Sonam Kapoor, Nina Agdal, Eva Longoria, Andie MacDowell, Weronica Zalazinska hit Cannes’ red carpet on day 6

Sonam Kapoor was arguably the highest-profile actress (when you factor in our audience numbers) walking the red carpet at the première of Inside Out on Monday, wearing a sorbet-coloured haute couture feathered gown from Elie Saab. At the weekend, the actress had unveiled Michelin star chef Vikas Khanna’s book, Utsav: a Culinary Epic of Indian Festivals, providing the book with added international exposure.
   Eva Longoria, meanwhile, took to the Inside Out red carpet with a silver Gabriela Cadena dress with sheer side panels and a train, earning plenty of coverage as she attended on behalf of L’OrĂ©al Paris (which announced that her look did, once again, feature the Superstar Mascara—ideal for Cannes—and the Infaillible 24h Matte foundation in Sand, the Super Liner Smokissime, and, for the lips, the Infaillible Mega Gloss in 502, Hold Me Close).
   Fellow L’OrĂ©al signature face Andie MacDowell, wore a coral Elie Saab gown with plunging neckline, commemorating 30 years of working with the French cosmetics’ giant.
   It’s a hard act to follow for many in MacDowell’s footsteps who also appeared on day six. Weronica Zalazinska, who proves that you can blog and get L’OrĂ©al to notice you at age 19, was only fitted for her gown in Warszawa on Friday, but made her Cannes red-carpet dĂ©but on Monday. Turkish actresses Cansu Dere (in a fitted white suit and matching cape) and Fahriye Evcen (also in white, but a column dress) also appeared for the beauty brand, for their own markets.
   Spanish model Eugenia Silva chose a black Dior gown, having de Grisogono’s Boule earrings, bracelet and ring set off against her dress, Sara Sampaio wore Vionnet spring–summer 2014 with Avakian Diamond Links bracelet and Diamond Riviera earrings, while Nina Agdal went for an aquatic theme with her light aqua Gyunel dress with gauze train, complemented by de Grisogono Gypsy earrings.

Aishwarya Rai, Natasha Poly, Eva Longoria, Svetlana Khodtchenkova: Cannes Film Festival, day 5

In our recent experience, no Cannes Film Festival is complete without Aishwarya Rai making an appearance. The actress and former Miss World graced the red carpet for Carol (the adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel, directed by Todd Haynes) at the Festival de Cannes with a nautical mood, with an emerald Elie Saab gown teamed with a de Grisogono cushion-cut blue sapphire ring. It marks her 14th year at Cannes as a L’OrĂ©al ambassador. Her daughter accompanied her on the trip, as behind-the-scenes photographs from the Indian branch of the company revealed on social networks.
   Also representing the French giant on day five at the Carol première was model Natasha Poly (Natalya Sergeyevna Polevshchikova) in a distinctive Versace design, featuring a sequinned body suit with a large belted skirt, so far her most imaginative outfit on the Cannes red carpet. Poly complemented this with de Grisogono Polina black diamond earrings. Eva Longoria, who was first spotted at a gala on Friday, walked the Carol red carpet resplendent in a dark blue Versace gown with a plunging neckline, Luma Grothe went with a short sequinned dress, and Li Bing Bing shone with porcelain skin and an updo, and another glittering white gown.
   Svetlana Khodtchenkova was pretty in pink with her strapless gown, showing off her de Grisogono Boule earrings and Allegra ring. German actress Elsa Zylberstein
 also chose de Grisogono jewellery, namely the XXL green tourmaline ring and briolette-cut emerald earrings, to go with her emerald Lanvin gown.
   Despite the official selfie ban, Longoria snapped one with Rai on the Carol red carpet, reposted by L’OrĂ©al Paris India.

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.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini—previously Cheryl Cole when she went to the Festival de Cannes—appeared on day three of the film festival at the première of Irrational Man wearing a low-cut nude silk crèpe column gown with draped sleeves and an embellished tulle bodice from Ralph & Russo. The custom gown, say the designers, takes inspiration from its spring–summer 2015 haute couture collection.
   Completing Fernandez-Versini’s look was the latest make-up from L’OrĂ©al Paris, another opportunity to showcase the Superstar Mascara, which has become this festival’s must-have item. Its Glam Bronze (in 01 Portofina-Leggero) powder served to highlight, the La Palette in nude beige provides all one needs for a nude-look eye-shadow, and the Color Riche 30 Years lipstick completed the look in a dark 703 Oud Obsession shade.
   Emma Stone stars in the movie and was also seen on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in a white metallic Christian Dior gown. German actress Heike Makatsch, like Fernandez-Versini another L’OrĂ©al Paris face, wore a white lace dress with floral motifs; while Inès de la Fressange wore a golden backless gown.
   Makatsch’s look used the True Match R2 Rose Vanilla foundation and the Color Riche 371 Pink Passion lipstick, giving a lighter look that L’OrĂ©al Paris says is a ‘signature look’ for this season’s red carpets; de la Fressange had the Golden Beige True Match foundation, a darker lip with the 630 Beige Ă  Nu shade of the Color Riche 30 Years lipstick, and the VML So Couture mascara. For the eye-shadow, she had the Color Riche quads, in E5 Velours Noir.
