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.

News in brief: Taylor Swift’s Tiger ring; Otis College’s 33rd fashion show; Swiss retails limited-edition Partime watch

One of our favourite items from Carrera y Carrera, the Tiger ring, appeared on the finger of Taylor Swift at the Billboard Music Awards at the weekend. The Madrid-based jewellery company noted that Swift, presenting her new music video for ‘Bad Blood’, wore the ring in white gold, smoky quartz and diamonds from the Bestiario collection with her white cut-out jumpsuit. Madonna, Jennifer López, and Olivia Palermo have chosen the Tiger ring in the past.
   Otis College of Art and Design’s 33rd annual Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was a lavish escape, revolving around the theme, A Celebration of Water. This year’s honorees include Carlos Alberini, the chief executive of Lucky Brand, designer Trina Turk, and Gary Schoenfeld, the president and CEO of PacSun. Mentors included: Bob Mackie, Trina Turk, Zaid Affas, Joe McCarty for Lane Bryant, Liliana Casabal for Morgane Le Fay, Mary Jo Bruno, Anne Cole, Isobella & Chloe, Heather Brown for PacSun, Ryan Keenan for Quiksilver, Alan Hardy for DC, Kesha Pomeroy for Roxy, and Urban Outfitters. Year after year, the event reflects the students’ hard work and approach to the fashion industry while being guided by a number of professional designers. Student Jessica Choi was recognized as Designer of the Year. Guests gathered to watch 100 ensembles take centre-stage.
   Finally, Swiss International Airlines is retailing a special Partime watch from June as part of its duty-free range this summer. Available only on board Swiss flights, the Partime watch is a limited edition, joining the 11 other models already offered. The complete collection will also be shown at the China Watch & Clock Fair in Shenzhen from June 25 to 28. (A video of the Partime’s movement can be seen at the bottom of this article.)—Lola Cristall, Paris editor, and Lucire staff

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’Oréal 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’Oréal 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’Oréal to notice you at age 19, was only fitted for her gown in Warszawa on Friday, but made her Cannes red-carpet début 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.

Video: who wore what at the 2015 Met Gala? Beyoncé, FKA Twigs, Rihanna stand out

Who wore what at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute 2015 Gala, benefiting the CFDA–Vogue Fashion Fund, with the theme, China: through the Looking Glass?
   We spotted Jessica Hart in a red Valentino Chinoiserie-style velvet dress, really getting into the spirit of the theme, accessorized with Carrera y Carrera jewellery; Kate Beckinsale made a similar choice for her jewels, and opted for a golden gown from Diane von Furstenberg and heels from Christian Louboutin.
   In our videos below, Sarah Jessica Parker surprised with a massive Philip Treacy custom headdress and a gown with a long train, designed by her in collaboration with Hennes & Mauritz. She wasn’t alone in donning head pieces: Tabitha Simmons (in Dolce & Gabbana) and Selena Gomez (in Vera Wang) went for them, too.
   Katie Holmes, sporting a fashionable bob, meanwhile, wore a sparkling, backless, beaded Zac Posen gown, with rose embroidery on the train. Kerry Washington, accompanied by her husband Nnamdi Asomugha, wore a satin Prada gown with a long train and floral embroidery. Another celebrity couple was Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs—one of Lucire’s news-makers as we summed up 2014—with Twigs wearing a high-slit gown with a nude print, complete with male genitalia, while Pattinson opted for something more conservative.
   Beyoncé was late to the event but eventually emerged wearing a very revealing, sparkling Givenchy gown, designed by Riccardo Tisci, that was barely there, inspired by I Dream of Jeannie—which also explains the ponytail. Another celebrity followed by the celeb titles, Kim Kardashian, wore a form-fitting white dress designed by Peter Dundas, from his first collection for Roberto Cavalli.
   Miley Cyrus’s hair also gained attention with its new look, with blue and green tints, while she wore a black studded Alexander Wang gown with large cut-outs, accessorized with an Ana Khouri ear cuff. Rihanna arrived later at the event, wearing a startling yellow Guo Pei robe with a train so large it required three assistants.
   The last video features Sofía Vergara in a Grecian-inspired Marchesa gown, and her fiancé Joe Manganiello. Vergara wrote on Instagram, ‘Gracias! So excited to be going to the Met Gala … We r ready!!’

Chanel shows cruise 2015–16 in Seoul, with Gisèle Bündchen, Kristen Stewart, Razane Jammal, Park Shin Hye, CL, Alma Jodorowsky

Chanel’s cruise 2015–16 collection has a stylistic link from what we saw at the ready-to-wear shows earlier this year, with Karl Lagerfeld confident with endowing the French label with plenty of colour and differing textures, though this time, he has looked to the orient for his inspiration.
   Showing on Monday at the Dongdaemum Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul in the presence of an audience that included Gisèle Bündchen, Kristen Stewart, Razane Jammal, Tilda Swinton, Gaspard Ulliel, Alma Jodorowsky, Isabelle Huppert, Rinko Kikuchi, G-Dragon, Taeyang, Ko Ah-Sung, Jung Ryeo-won, Park Shin Hye, Choi Siwon, Sandro Kopp, Gwei Lun Mei, Han Ye Seul, Namie Amuro, Lee Jong Suk, Yoona Lim, and CL, the cruise collection has what Chanel dubs a structured, avant-garde silhouette.
   Gone was the houndstooth of the autumn–winter 2015–16 collection, replaced by highly colourful tweeds and cottons, which injected more pizazz into the silhouette. Lagerfeld also used shantung, linen, tulle and lace. He pulled off patchwork with more elegance than most designers can muster, while stripes and embroideries provided further texture to each look. Instead of the Parisian inspiration from his previous collection, Chanel took the Korean hanbok and moulded it into jackets with rounded shoulders; the collars were also slightly rounded and full, avoiding sharp lines. Skirts are pencil- and straight-cut, while trousers are wide. The sense of volume really came from the textures and layers used, more than the cuts themselves.
   The post-show event saw a performance by DJ Mademoiselle Yulia, followed by a private concert by Cerrone and a further performance by DJ Tim Sweeney.

Goodness and Noa Noa welcome the winter blues

Lucire staff/5.56

Nikita Brown Photography

When the scene gets quiet, you can always trust our own fashion and beauty editor, Sopheak Seng, to helm a show to get things buzzing again. In collaboration with Goodness, which was the first out of the gate at a two-label show at Caffè l’Affaré last Thursday, Wellington fashionistas and guests escaped the first wintry blasts for one of the more memorable social events on the calendar.
   Goodness’s Chris Hales, whose boutiques have been selling fashionable and sometimes harder-to-find independent designers for some time, launched her own range to complement the likes of Loobie’s Story, Kowtow, Nyne and Deborah Sweeney some time ago, but this was the first catwalk outing that Lucire witnessed. And she understands her customer well: casual separates, paired in unexpected ways, tapping in to the floral trend that’s been forecast for autumn–winter 2015. Taupe and olive similarly conveyed the winter vibe, right on time for the colder months Down Under.
   The second half of the show, styled by Lucire’s Sopheak Seng, showcased Danish label Noa Noa, with a winter collection ‘inspired by the tapestry of life,’ says Seng. Trawling through the markets in France to the bazaars in Marrakech—not unlike our last few print editions, then—the eclectic collection saw masculine lines meeting feminine fabrications, tied with the first half of the show through floral motifs in forest green, Moroccan blue, and tawny red. Sunglasses were donned by each of the models, resplendent in jackets and coats, looking cool as they wandered down the catwalk, much as the designers would have wandered through those bazaars.
   Live music from Ophelia, the indie folk–dubstep duo of Patrick Shanahan and Alex Louise, served as the unique soundtrack to both shows, cranking up the non-mainstream vibe of the show, while in the café, itself one of the trendy spots of the capital, sponsors served up Triple Rock vodka (the jaffa and liquorice varieties were very memorable), Colombo wines, Moa cider, and l’Affarè coffee itself. Clinique did the make-up, Chop created the hair looks using Kevin Murphy, and Rydges were credited with their support for the band. Shoes were from Shoe Connection. Finally, Gazley’s support was very evident with four stylish Alfa Romeo Giuliettas parked outside and a MiTo on the catwalk, upping the Euro credentials with Italian chic. The blue lights shining on the walls surrounding the catwalk served to remind us that one can, indeed, stay warm with the winter blues!

Coachella fashion summarized: from Kylie Jenner’s turquoise hair to Paris Hilton’s crochet outfit

Kylie Jenner, on Instagram

With nearly 21 million followers on her Instagram, 17-year-old Kylie Jenner will be an influencer, and her hair choice—going with a turquoise wig—could spark some copycats out there who decide that this is the “in” shade. Her latest photo sporting the look (above), at the Coachella festival, has already netted a million likes in just over 12 hours. Our first entertainment video goes through Jenner’s hair history, with the dark locks at the start, before her bleaching and ombre trend.
   Both Jenner sisters, Kylie and Kendall, headed to the festival this weekend. Kendall hit the 1970s vibe with a cropped top and max skirt, while Kylie also went with a cropped top, sleeveless vest, and white shorts. Fergie channelled the ’70s vibe, too, with her brown fringed waistcoat, denim shorts, and ankle boots on day one; and a fitted lace dress and black fedora for day two.
   Paris Hilton, who was at Kari Feinstein’s pre-Coachella suites, and her sister, former Lucire cover girl Nicky Hilton, went with white crochet ensembles (bikini top for Paris; dress for Nicky); one of our 2014 news-makers, FKA Twigs, wore a simple chiffon dress; and Beyoncé similarly went with chiffon with her maxi dress and black leather ankle boots.
