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

Day two of the 2015 Festival de Cannes, the 68th Cannes Film Festival, saw Michelle Rodriguez and Charlize Theron get the attention of celebrity-watchers as they walked the red carpet for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
   Rodriguez wore a black, nearly backless Zuhair Murad embroidered lace gown with floral paillette embroidery, accessorized with a de Grisogono XXL jewel and its Melody of Colours ring set with a centre aquamarine weighing over 60 ct.
   Theron, accompanied by boyfriend Sean Penn, wore a canary yellow strapless Dior gown, with accessories kept to a minimum.
   Fan Bingbing wore a grey floral Marchesa gown with 3D floral details evoking spring blossoms, with L’Oréal Paris’s make-up artists using Superstar Mascara and Superliner Perfect Slim in black, and Color Riche 30 Years lipstick in 238, Orange After Party. Fan had flowers in her hair, too, to go with her gown, held in place by L’Oréal’s Elnett Satin Supreme Hold.
   Salma Hayek joined her co-stars for the première of Il racconto dei racconti (Tale of Tales) wearing a red floral Alexander McQueen dress. We also spotted Isabella Rossellini (whose late mother, Ingrid Bergman, features in the Festival’s publicity images this year) in Stella McCartney, Courtney Eaton in Chanel, and Sophie Marceau in Alexandre Vauthier.
   Alongside Fan were her fellow L’Oréal Paris spokeswomen, including Inès de la Fressange, Julianne Moore (in Givenchy), Katrina Kaif, and Liya Kebede. Naomi Watts was particularly memorable and glamorous—in that classic Hollywood sense—wearing a black Ralph Lauren gown.

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.

At the very least, you can choose something to fit your own emotions—Karma Feeling’s website guides you through it. Its owner, Gaynor Osborne-Lawn, explains: ‘The gemstones are used to create a unique look and to create energies that benefit the wearer.

The designs are machine-washable and environmentally friendly, and has anti-tear and anti-scratch properties, according to the company. Rose & Willard has attacted the likes of Michelle Dockery and Charlotte Riley, as well as two Bond girls, Naomie Harris and Gemma Arterton.
   Finally, online guide The Fifty Best has awarded New Zealand’s Black Robin Rare Gin (left) a Double Gold medal in its Best Gin Awards for 2015. After blind-tasting 57 gins from around the world, Black Robin gained a Double Gold, which meant it received top points across the board. Black Robin notes that it was inspired by the endangered black robin, and a percentage of profits goes to the Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society of New Zealand. It is described as a spicy, citrus gin, with a soft floral note and a dry finish.

Reese Witherspoon launches her own US south-inspired fashion and lifestyle venture, Draper James

Lucire staff/23.34

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon is behind a new southern US-inspired retail brand, Draper James, appealing to those who would like their fashion, accessories and home décor with a touch of Dixie.
   Witherspoon has named the brand after her grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, who are said to be her greatest influences.
   Witherspoon, who grew up in Nashville, Tenn., recently moved back there, and says the brand pays tribute to her own past. It’s not retro-focused, either: Witherspoon is intent that Draper James reflects what the US south is today.
   Fashion items are feminine, bright and playful, and include dresses and separates; accessories include jewellery and handbags, and home items include stationery, manchester and cocktail napkins.
   She will work with southern artisans and items will be produced in southern factories, says the company.
   â€˜Draper James was built on the backdrop of Reese’s southern past which is both timely and relevant. Not only is the south having a cultural surge, but it has a rich ecosystem that we tapped into on every level,’ says Draper James CEO, Andrea Hyde.
   The ecommerce site launches first at draperjames.com, with a physical store in Nashville to come. Instagram and Twitter presences are up, and the company is using the #DraperJames hashtag.

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.
