Plenty of celebrities attended the 71st Festival de Cannes (Cannes Film Festival) première of the Chinese film 江湖儿女 (Ash Is the Purest White), directed by Jia Zhangke (賈樟柯), including Thai actress Araya A. Hargate (a.k.a. Chompoo), in a feathered jumpsuit by Ashi Studio’s spring 2018 couture collection, and her compatriot, the Swedish–Thai model and actress Praya Lundberg, in a Michael Cinco Couture gown with an embroidered, hand-painted skirt, and jewellery by de Grisogono. Deepika Padukone returned in a bright pink Ashi Studio spring 2018 couture gown, while fellow Indian actress Kangana Ranaut, as a representative of Grey Goose, arrived in a beaded Nedo & Nedret Taciroğlu jumpsuit, also with jewellery by de Grisogono.
Israeli-American actress Moran Atias wore a black strapless gown with thigh-high split and pink train, and Elsa Zylberstein donned a white gown with a plunging neckline and high split; both chose de Grisogono jewellery to complete their looks.
L’Oréal Paris ambassadors were out in force, beyond Hargate and Padukone: Aja Naomi King wore a ruby red Pamella Roland gown; Guan Xiao Tong (關曉彤) chose a light pink embroidered tulle gown; Francisco Lachowski, the only male appearing from this group, went for a classic dinner suit; Ukrainian singer Regina Todorenko (Регіна Петрівна Тодоренко) wore a black and red tulle gown, and Cheryl (formerly Cheryl Cole) wore a Zuhair Murad white beaded gown from the resort 2018 collection.
