Day 10 of the Festival de Cannes saw Ralph & Russo gowns chosen by models Jourdan Dunn and Liu Wen for The Little Prince screening: Dunn had a black tulle strapless fishtail gown with floral crystal embellishment from the spring–summer 2015 couture collection, while Liu wore the label’s ice blue silk pencil peplum gown with pearl and crystal embellishment from its autumn–winter 2014–15 couture collection.
   Among the auction items bid on that we didn’t note in our previous report on the AmFAR gala were Tom Ford dresses auctioned by Eva Longoria (fetching US$900,000) and a Banksy original from the collection of Leonardo DiCaprio (US$1,000,000). DiCaprio also auctioned a date with himself on his yacht, getting US$280,000. Proceeds went to Aids research.
   Moët Hennessy, which was a Gala sponsor, auctioned a luxury experience with accommodation, wine tastings and visits to châteaux, and three golden jeroboams of Moët Imperial champagne, for €70,000. It also announced a three-year global partnership with AmFAR, where it will be the exclusive wine and spirits partner for all its events.
   L’Oréal Paris has released a series of behind-the-scenes images revealing the preparation for the Gala, featuring Soo-Joo Park, Barbara Palvin, and Karlie Kloss.
   Finally, our Celebrity Wire video, filed earlier today, briefly covers day nine’s Women in Film event, where Calvin Klein hosted Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel Weisz, Sienna Miller and Emily Blunt.

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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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’Oréal’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 Alaïa, 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’Oréal Paris, and the company threw her a party to commemorate the event.

Hennes & Mauritz’s next designer collaboration, on sale November 5, is with Balmain of Paris.
   Founded by Pierre Balmain after World War II, the veritable house rode a high soon after launch, being the choice of Hollywood stars. Now under the creative direction of Olivier Rousteing, Balmain has recaptured its “must-have” nature among celebrities, and Rousteing himself, as H&M points out, headed to the Billboard Music Awards’ red carpet last night in Las Vegas, Nevada to join friends and fans Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn, who are promoting the campaign alongside him.
   Using the hashtag #HMBalmaination, the two brands are signalling their collaboration on social media. ‘I want to talk to my generation: this is my main aim as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, get a piece of the dream and create a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fuelled on a hashtag. The collaboration felt extremely natural to me: H&M is a brand that everybody connects to. It calls for unity, and I am all for it,’ said Rousteing in a release.
   â€˜We are excited to have Balmain as our guest designer at H&M and create a truly involving experience for everybody,’ said Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s creative adviser. ‘With its mix of couture spirit and streetwear attitude, Balmain owns a unique style, at once opulent and direct, sensual and energetic. It is also closely linked to the show business and music worlds, which adds another element of surprise.’
   The collection will hit 250 stores worldwide and online at hm.com.

Natalie Portman’s directorial début, 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’Oréal 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 Cliché 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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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 à 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.

The Festival de Cannes, the 68th Cannes Film Festival, kicked off Wednesday at the Palais des Festivals, with plenty of glamour from the red carpet, as well as big names. Catherine Deneuve, the iconic French actress, stars in the opening-night film, Le tête haute (Standing Tall), and appeared before the cameras. In 1964, Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, which put Deneuve on the map, won the Palme d’Or.
   The film deals with juvenile delinquency, and was directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, the first woman to direct the opening-night film since Diane Kurys in 1987 with A Man in Love. Deneuve plays a juvenile court judge, starring with Benoît Magimel, playing Yann, a youth counsellor, Sara Forestier as the mother who cannot control her son, and Rod Paradot as Malony, the young man out of control.
   Providing even more glamour at the opening ceremony were numerous L’Oréal Paris faces: Fan Bingbing, Doutzen Kroes, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Katrina Kaif, Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede, and Leila Bekhti. John Legend represented the men’s range.
   Fan wore a custom Ralph & Russo couture silk crèpe off-the-shoulder gown inspired by 18th-century Chinese art, with 10,000 Swarovski crystals and hand-embroidered floral motifs. The company said it took 1,000 hours to make.
   Her L’Oréal Paris look complemented the traditional Chinese style, with the Infaillible 24H Matte foundation giving her porcelain skin, and the Superstar mascara and liner, along with the Infaillible Mega Gloss (in 505, Never Let Me Go, a tangerine shade) lifting her eyes and lips.
   Watts’s Elie Saab gown glittered in silver, and featured a feather-covered skirt.
   Academy Award-winning Moore, looking far more youthful than her 54 years, wore a Armani Privé gown, and gained a smoky eye effect thanks to the Superstar mascara and the Brow Artist Genius kit.
   Karlie Kloss went with one of her favourite labels, Versace, complemented by de Grisogono Sole earrings and the Onde ring; Liya Kebede wore Louis Vuitton with de Grisogono’s Allegra ring and 1 m sautoir necklace; Bar Refaeli, accompanied by Fawaz Gruosi, wore a white Roland Mouret dress with the de Grisogono cabochon-cut India earrings, and Sensuale and Allegra rings; Sienna Miller attended in a stunning column gown by Lanvin; while Natalie Portman, accompanied by her husband Benjamin Millepied, wore Dior couture for an elegant yet still dazzling look, lifted further by de Grisogono’s Gocce earrings, Jane ring, and Tubetto bangle.
   There has been a crack-down on selfies this year at the Festival, just as there had been at the Met Gala earlier this month.

David Gandy and Jodie Kidd lead Jaguar’s Mille Miglia line-up; Bentley fields 1930 Blower

Top The nine Jaguars taking place in this year’s Mille Miglia. Above Almost Bondian: the 1930 Bentley 4½-litre with a Vanden Plas Open Sports four-seat body and a supercharger by Amherst Villiers competing in the 2015 Mille Miglia.

British car makers are taking this year’s Mille Miglia seriously. Jaguar is taking part with a large heritage line-up, and has enlisted, once again, the help of model and motorhead David Gandy, who competes in an XK120 as he did two years ago along with Jodie Kidd, who must equal Gandy both in the modelling and motorhead stakes. Bentley will field an original 1930 4½-litre Blower, in an attempt to complete what it could not do back then: complete the race.
   Jaguar’s fleet consists of nine, including three C-types, three D-types, an XK120, an XK140, and, the most unusual of this group, a Mark VII—although one had won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1956. One of the C-types is NDU 289, which competed in the original Mille Miglia in 1953, driven that time by Mario Tadini and Franco Cortese. Jaguar engineer Mike Cross drives the car in the 2015 event.
   Other C-types are PUG 676, which was raced by Ian Appleyard, Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons’s son-in-law, this time driven by RAC motoring committee chairman Ben Cussons; and KSF 182, formerly raced by Jimmy Stewart and Jackie Stewart between 1953 and 1955, and owned now by Adam Lindemann, driven this time by five-time Le Mans winner, Derek Bell. The D-types are the ex-Ralph Lauren NCV 260, which had competed in the original Mille Miglias, driven by current owner Simon Kidston; RSF 303, the Ecurie Ecosse car that was second in Le Mans in 1957 and competed in the Mille Miglia in 1957 and 1958, driven by Jaguar design director Ian Callum and enthusiast Clive Beecham; 393 RW, the Reims winner for 1956 and the sixth-place-getter at Le Mans that year, setting the lap record, will be driven by Saturday Kitchen’s James Martin.
   One XK120, nicknamed Betsey, will be driven by Jodie Kidd and David Gandy, as noted: she had driven the car in the 2014 trial. The XK140, TAC 743, was once raced by David Hobbs; it will be driven by Elliot Gleave, a.k.a. Example, and his father Michael. The Mark VII will be driven by Charley Boorman.
   Bentley, meanwhile, will field a 1930 British racing green 4½-litre Blower with a Vanden Plas Open Sports four-seat body and a supercharger by Amherst Villiers—not unlike the one driven by James Bond. The Bentley Boys, the Hon Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin and Bentley chairman Woolf Barnato (right, at Le Mans in 1929), were the first British drivers to compete in the Mille Miglia, using the No. 2 Birkin Blower, a 4½-litre supercharged model. However, they were unable to complete the race.
   Bentley is aiming to do what it could not 85 years ago, using an equivalent model and seeing if its director of royal and VIP relations, Richard Charlesworth can complete the race in the 2015 event. It is the Blower’s fifth entry.
   Between May 14 and 17, 2015, racers will depart from Brescia and drive 1,000 miles, including through Roma, and return to Brescia.

Coty has announced that Dree Hemingway is the new face of its Chloé fragrance, with the campaign breaking in September. She follows in the footsteps of Clémence Poésy, Chloë Sevigny, Anja Rubik and Suvi Koponen.
   American-born Hemingway is a classically trained actor, a graduate of RADA, and starred in 2012’s Starlet. More recently, she appeared in While We’re Young and Listen Up Philip, and other credits include Nous York and Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You. She has modelled, beginning in 2009 for Givenchy, and most recently walked for Chloé in March 2015 in Paris.
   She was chosen for her ‘modernity, natural femininity, free-spiritedness and independence,’ says Coty.
   Hemingway said in a release, ‘I am very honoured to be the new face of Chloé. It is a brand that has been part of my life for a long time; it brings up a lot of memories for me. I am looking forward to continuing my story with Chloé into the world of fragrance.’
   â€˜She completely embodies the Chloé girl’s spirit and attitude,’ says Clare Waight Keller, Chloé’s creative director. ‘Her radiant beauty and personality express everything I wanted to convey with the fragrance. It is her incredible ability to be elegant, nonchalant and spontaneous all at once that is both modern and charming”, notes Clare Waight Keller, Chloé’s creative director.
   She has a modest Instagram following of around 72,000 at the time of writing, with just over 30,000 on Twitter.
   Hemingway previously appeared in campaigns for Gianfranco Ferré and Salvatore Ferragamo.
   She is the daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and Stephen Crisman.
