De Grisogono and its founder and creative director Fawaz Gruosi played host to one of the Festival de Cannes’ most anticipated soirées at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. A high-fashion jewellery show, with dresses by Elie Saab, followed by an extravaganza by Ekdokimov, the launch of Euronews’s new identity, a dinner for 650 guests, and a private performance by the Earth, Wind & Fire Experience featuring the Al McKay Allstars, DJ Jack E and DJ Willy.
Given the Zeitgeist, it was Kim Kardashian West (in Lan Yu) who grabbed paparazzi attention on the evening of day 7, but there were plenty of other top stars there, too: Robert de Niro and Grace Hightower, Paris Hilton looking more radiant than ever, Chanel Iman, Ana Beatriz Barros, Milla Jovovich, Toni Garrn and Chandler Parsons, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, Bella Hadid (in Givenchy), Siran Manoukian, Hofit Golan, Valeria Golino, Hailey Clauson, Chris Tucker, Denise Rich, Victoria Lopyreva, Mischa Barton, Mohammed al Turki, David Wertheimer and Toghzan Izbassarova, Lara Lieto, Stephen Hung, Amaury Nolasco, Godeliv van den Brandt, Natasha Poly, Maryna Linchuk, Doina Ciobanu, Rose Bertram, Kenneth Cole, Alina Baikova, Gala Gonzalez, Eva Cavalli, Carolina Parsons, Jean-Roch, Édgar Ramírez and Ana de Armas from Hands of Stone, Violetta Gruosi, Amy Jackson, Gregory van der Weil, Ivana Trump and Massimo Gargia.
And since you can never get by without your Mum, Kardashian West’s mother Kris Jenner was also a VIP at the extravagant soirée held during the Festival de Cannes.
Gruosi took the opportunity to showcase a flawless, colourless rough diamond weighing 404 ct with flawless clarity, one of the 30 largest top-quality ones ever found, and the largest found in Angola.
