It’s been over two decades since her famous ‘Hello boys’ campaign for Wonderbra, yet Eva HerzigovĂĄ remains in high demand as a spokesmodel. Gerry Weber is the latest fashion label to seek the 44-year-old Czech-born, London-based model, who now fronts its autumn–winter 2017–18 campaign.
   The company says it chose HerzigovĂĄ for her self-confident and approachable style, saying she fits with its values of ‘feminine–casual chic–inspiring.’
   To launch the collection, Gerry Weber had an open fashion night at the weekend during the Halle Open, which the company sponsors.
   The Saturday event saw guests including models Alisar Ailabouni, Rebecca Mir and Luisa Hartema, Werner Schulze-Erdel, tennis players Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev, bloggers Carolin FĂ€rber, Monique Romanowski and Tatjana Kreuzmayr, gymnast Fabian HambĂŒchen, Anna Kraft, Harald Lampp, Jochen Stahler, Niels Koischwitz, Eva Koischwitz, Sibylle Seifert, Michael Bauer, Stefan Becker, Henning Schleemann, Oliver Keeb, Bernhard Kiesel, Franz Stadler, Jan Gritz and Bettina Gritz, Susanne Strauss, Jens Herzig, Oliver Fritz and Carmen Mundt, Juliane Sturm and Richard Doyle, Cornelia Stein, Uli Stein, Jenny Stein, Soenke Lauterbach and Nina Lauterbach, and Irina Weber; Gerry Weber CEO Ralf Weber and CFO David Frink represented the firm. Alle Farben provided the music at the event.
   Wearing designs from the Gerry Weber autumn–winter 2017–18 collection, HerzigovĂĄ was present on centre court at the Gerry Weber Stadion to present the trophy.
   Gerry Weber’s autumn–winter forecast is for bright colours, such as fuchsia and red; its key look is a cashmere pullover paired with a pleated skirt; and a fuchsia dress with cut-outs in the dĂ©colletĂ©. Rhinestones are used as accents.
   It also offers staple autumn shades such as honey and amber, with brick and cinnamon tones. Materials include jersey, leather, lace and Lurex; pleats, metallics and glossy surfaces are also forecast for the season.
   The collection hits stores on September 1, 2017.

The AmFAR Gala is traditionally the biggest do during the Festival de Cannes, and this year was no exception.
   The events had kicked off on Wednesday with a party for Persol, the Torino-founded eyewear brand, which celebrated its centenary. In partnership with AmFAR, the event took place on a yacht berthed in Port Pierre Canto, and was attended by Will Smith, Adrien Brody, Toby Maguire, BĂ©rĂ©nice BĂ©jo, Jasmine Tookes and Eva Longoria, with Dionne Warwick kicking off the celebrations.
   But all eyes were on last night at the AmFAR Gala, with support from MoĂ«t Hennessy, Harry Winston, Bold Films, Persol, Renault, and Harvey Weinstein, held at the HĂŽtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Celebrities and VIPs included Will Smith (who livened up the evening by carrying out one of the auctions), Diana Ross, Dustin Hoffman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman (in Chanel), Christoph Waltz, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jessica Chastain (in Prada), Tobey Maguire, Chris Tucker, Bella Hadid (in a very sheer Ralph & Russo), Diane Kruger (in Alexander McQueen), Eva Longoria (in Elie Saab), David Beckham, Harvey Weinstein, Coco Rocha, former Miss France Laury Thilleman, reigning Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere, Nicki Minaj (in Roberto Cavalli), Adrien Brody, Uma Thurman and her Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke, Irina Shayk, Doutzen KrƓs, Olivier Rousteing, Lara Stone, Petra NěmcovĂĄ, KarolĂ­na KurkovĂĄ, DNCE, Lindsay Lohan, Cindy Bruna, Kiwi Victoria’s Secret model Georgia Fowler, Sophie Taylor, Millie Mackintosh, Maria Borges, Valery Kaufman, Carine Roitfeld, Elsa Hosk, Hana JiƙíčkovĂĄ, Hailey Baldwin, Jon Kortajarena, Paz Vega, de Grisogono boss Fawaz Gruosi, Jasmine Tookes, Praya Lundberg, Sonia Ben Ammar, Leo Bahadourian and Anne-Sophie Bahadourian, footballer Juan Arbelaez, incoming Hennessy master blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, Jean-François Michel, Tommie Pegues, Hani Farsi, Alex Dunnet, Sylvain Ercoli and Dali Ercoli, Costadis Spyropoulos and Elmina Spyropoulos, Nathalie Normand, Camille Charriere, Kanako Sakai and Kouka Webb. Rocha presented the auction lot from MoĂ«t Hennessy, featuring a unique lot (no. 84 of 250) of Hennessy 8, a blend of rare eaux-de-vie and a unique companion sculpture signed by artist Arik LĂ©vy, who also attended. Hadid, meanwhile, served champagne on stage, and the AmFAR fashion show, which featured, inter alia, Kurkova, Shayk, Kaufman, Baldwin, Hadid, Hosk, Tookes and JiƙíčkovĂĄ, curated by Roitfeld, earned over €3 million for the dresses. Other performers on the night included Ross, Ora, Minaj, and DNCE.
   A Timothy White photo of Elizabeth Taylor went for €80,000. One successful bidder paid €350,000 to play soccer with Beckham, and another paid the same amount for a five-day trek to visit HH the Dalai Lama. A 1958 Jaguar XK150 sold for €600,000, beating a Richard Hambleton-painted van that sold for €250,000. A week in the Maldives sold for over €700,000 (note: it was for 60 people), as did a huge JR sculpture of an Olympic diver. A week on board a Serenity yacht for 30 guests went for €450,000. A Haas Brothers sculpture went for €500,000. A collection of George Hurrell Hollywood portraits sold for €2 million. Some €20 million (down on previous years’ dos) was raised at this year’s gala, the funds going to Aids research.

Party time at the Festival de Cannes on day eight: Elsa Hosk, Irina Shayk, Eva Longoria, Doutzen KrƓs

You would be forgiven thinking there was a sense of dĂ©jĂ  vu at day eight of the Cannes Film Festival, with Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell again. Adapted from the novel by Thomas P. Cullinan, a 1971 adaptation had starred Clint Eastwood, and is considered one of the actor’s best works.
   Coppola’s version has had generally positive reviews at Cannes (The Independent was a detractor) but mixed ones in earlier previews.
   Once again, it was red carpet-watching that earned more nods, as well as the L’OrĂ©al Paris Cinema Club party, which commemorates the French cosmetics’ brand’s 20th anniversary at the Festival de Cannes.
   Swedish model Elsa Hosk wore Alberta Ferretti with jewellery by de Grisogono; and Hailey Baldwin wore Ralph & Russo with de Grisogono jewellery. Both ladies showed again that this year’s Cannes Film Festival is about how high the thigh split can go. Kidman chose Michael Kors, while Elle Fanning opted for Rodarte; Jasmine Tookes chose Georges Chakra.
   L’OrĂ©alistas Emily Canham, Irina Shayk, Lara Stone, Maria Borges, Paola Turani, Doutzen KrƓs, Ophelie Duvillard, Neelam Gill, Regina Todorenko, Stefanie Giesinger and Lena Meyer-Landrut represented the brand on one of its biggest days at Cannes.
   At the L’OrĂ©al Paris do, Doutzen KrƓs, Eva Longoria, Maria Borges, Cindy Bruna, Irina Shayk, Neelam Gill, Alexina Graham, Bianca Balti and Lara Stone all appeared in Balmain, as the two companies celebrated an upcoming Balmain Paris × L’OrĂ©al Paris lipstick collection. Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, was in attendance at both the premiĂšre and the evening party.

The Cannes Film Festival’s fifth day’s screening of The Meyerowitz Stories at Cannes saw L’OrĂ©alistas Sonam Kapoor, Araya A. Hargate, Andie MacDowell, Iris Berben, Heike Makatash and YouTuber EnjoyPhoenix, as well as Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Jessica Chastain, Mary J. Blige, Coco Rocha, Olya Kurylenko, Laetitia Casta, Isabelle Huppert, Karena Ng, Greta Gerwig, Barbara Meier and Molly Sims. Away from the red carpet, Eva Longoria promoted L’OrĂ©al Paris at a boutique meet-and-greet and surprised unwitting customers who didn’t expect a Hollywood star to serve them.
   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.

Festival de Cannes day 2: Deepika Padukone, Thylane Blondeau, Emily Ratajkowski, Cara Delevingne

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.’
