There was strong competition for best dressed on day four of the Festival de Cannes, a day that saw the premières of Too Old to Die Young, Little Joe and Dolor y gloria (Pain and Glory).
   Attending Pain and Glory, US singer Madison Beer wowed with a voluminous black Georges Hobeika gown, accessorized with Casadei heels and jewellery by de Grisogono (Millefoglie earrings, Allegra bracelet, Allegra and Gocce rings). Penélope Cruz showed a classic side, choosing a design from Karl Lagerfeld’s final haute couture collection for Chanel. She publicly thanked Lagerfeld’s successor, Virginie Viard, and said wearing the dress was ’emotional’ for her.
   Bella Hadid knows that red turns heads, and at the Pain and Glory première, she wore a startling and smouldering number by Roberto Cavalli gown, with a thigh-high split, though it wasn’t as revealing as her red Alexandre Vauthier gown that she donned three years ago.
   Dolor y gloria’s première saw Cruz join co-stars Antonio Banderas, Asier Etxeandia, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Nora Navas and Julieta Serrano, director Pedro Almodóvar, and director of photography José Luis Alcaine.

The much-awaited Elton John musical biopic, Rocketman, had its première on day three of the Festival de Cannes, with Sir Elton himself among the celebrities on the red carpet.
   Sir Elton produced the film along with his spouse David Furnish, who both attended, along with director Dexter Fletcher, actors Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard and Kit Connor, and Sir Elton’s long-time collaborator, lyricist Bernie Taupin.
   Other celebrities on the red carpet included Sririta Jensen in a knock-out lilac Michael Cinco Couture gown, wearing jewellery by Avakian, namely a bracelet from its Gatsby collection, set with diamonds, pearls, amethysts and white enamel, with matching earrings. Eva Longoria Baston wore a stunning Cristina Ottaviano gown with shoes by Yves Saint Laurent and jewellery by de Grisogono, wearing Boule earrings in yellow & white gold set with white diamonds (1·3 ct) and brown diamonds (28·5 ct). Praya Lundberg chose a Versace gown held together with safety pins (sound familiar?), but in a drop-dead gorgeous red, complemented by Avakian’s Tosca transformable diamond earrings and matching ring in white gold and set with diamonds and mother-of-pearl.
   The post-screening press conference indicated that the crew were intent on making an honest film about Sir Elton John, and it covers both his peaks and his troughs in his career.

Les Misérables is the first French film in competition at Cannes 2019, but it’s not the classic by Victor Hugo (there have been enough adaptations of late). Director Ladj Ly’s first fictional film is set in Montfermeil, Paris, which inspired Hugo, but is set in the modern day and centres around police brutality—Ly himself grew up on a housing estate there. He had worked on a César-winning short prior to this, and his new film expands on his earlier work.
   On the red carpet with Ly were actors Steve Tientcheu, Djebril Zonga, Alexis Manenti, Al Hassan Ly, Issa Perica, and Damien Bonnard, screenwriter Giordano Gederlini, and producers Toufik Ayadi and Christophe Barral.
   A night-time première was Bacurau, a Brazilian film in competition, with journalist Marie Sauvion, directors Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles, actors Udo Kier, Barbara Colen, Thomas Aquino, Silvero Pereira and Karine Teles, and producers Emilie Lesclaux and Saïd Ben Saïd.
   Present for day two red carpet appearances were Indian actress Hina Khan, in Ziad Nakad, and Thai actress Sririta Jensen in a stunning Michael Cinco gown from his spring–summer 2019 haute couture collection with jewellery by Avakian. Jensen’s necklace had 77·68 ct of pink sapphires, 23·51 ct of rose-cut diamonds, and 18·07 ct of round brilliant-cut white diamonds. Araya A. Hargate (‘Chompoo’) wore a sheer powder-blue Atelier Versace corset gown.

The 72nd Festival de Cannes got off to a slower start than usual, with the opening night horror film The Dead Don’t Die getting mixed reviews, and activity from major sponsors like L’Oréal and Renault was substantially less than in years gone by—it’s as though they’re here almost as lip service.
   Still, the celebrities themselves were more than happy to tell us what they were up to. Julianne Moore donned a green chiffon Dior gown for opening night; Selena Gómez (her first time at Cannes, as one of actresses in The Dead Don’t Die) went with Louis Vuitton, with jewellery by Bulgari. Model Barbara Meier wore a memorable Ziad Nakad silver gown with sequins and feathers, with jewellery by de Grisogono (Vortice earrings in pink gold set with white diamonds [11·60 ct] paired with a Chiocciolina ring in pink gold set with white diamonds [2·35 ct]), and Iraqi influencer Rania Fawaz chose a Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki gown, with jewellery also by de Grisogono (Gypsy earrings in white gold set with white diamonds [21·4 ct] paired with a Gypsy ring in white gold set with white diamonds [5·80 ct]).
   Present for the première were producers Joshua Astrachan and Carter Logan, director Jim Jarmusch, and actors Gómez, Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton.



A glamorous 25th annual gala for AmFAR: Alessandra Ambrosio, Winnie Harlow, Barbara Palvin, Elsa Hosk among celebs

Filed by Lucire staff/May 18, 2018/6.59


AmFAR, the Foundation for Aids Research, hosted its 25th annual gala at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc at the Cap d’Antibes, but there were fewer film celebrities and more fashion models attending, possibly a consequence of the fallout surrounding disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, heavily involved in previous years. AmFAR chairman Kenneth Cole had resigned in February, and Deadline reported allegations that funds from the 2015 event found its way to paying one of Weinstein’s debts.
   Also absent were regulars such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Sharon Stone. Pierce Brosnan took the place of DiCaprio next to the charity’s current chair Milutin Gatsby.
   But those present still made the event one of the most glamorous during the Festival de Cannes.
   Celebrities included Alessandra Ambrosio (in Tommy Hilfiger), Elsa Hosk (in Ermanno Scervino), Lara Leito (in Zuhair Murad), Daniela Lopez Osorio (in Zuhair Murad), Winnie Harlow (in Zuhair Murad, with jewellery by de Grisogono), Sara Sampaio (in Elie Saab), Nicole Scherzinger (in Georges Hobeika, with jewellery by de Grisogono), Cindy Mello (in in Georges Hobeika), Xenia Adonts (in Georges Hobeika), Izabel Goulart (in Valentino), Heidi Klum (in Zuhair Murad), Ellie Goulding (in Magda Butrym), Nadine Leopold (in Elie Saab), Sara Sampaio (in Elie Saab), Cindy Bruna (in Giambattista Valli, jewellery by de Grisogono), Barbara Palvin (in Roberto Cavalli), Maria Borges (in Roberto Cavalli), Toni Garrn (in Galvan), Natasha Poly (in Atelier Versace), Georgia Fowler (in Alex Perry), Laura Harrier (in the Row), Kristen Stewart (in Chanel), Michelle Rodriguez (in Romona Keveza, with jewellery by de Grisogono), Milla Jovovich (in Chanel), Ruby Rose (in Rosa Chá), Paris Hilton (in Nicolas Jebran), Martha Hunt (in Sonia Rykiel), Adriana Lima (in Julien Macdonald), Lais Ribeiro (in Lyla Dumont), Ava DuVernay (in Cushine et Ochs), Karolína Kurková (in Miu Miu), and Shanina Shaik (in Philipp Plein).
   Also attending were Julian Lennon, Mallika Sherawat, Adrien Brody, Nathalie Emmanuel, Keely Shaye Smith, Petra Němcová, Lara Stone, Hofit Golan, Anne Heche, Lewis Hamilton, Isabeli Fontana, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Tyga, Neelam Gill, Jacinda Barrett, Daria Strokous, Halima Aden, Chris Tucker, Megan Williams, Jason Derulo, Teyana Taylor, Vivian Sibold and Nico Rosberg, Daniela Braga, Mette Towley and Valerie Kaufman.
   Performing during the evening were Goulding, Sting and Shaggy with a three-song set, Grace Jones (who paid tribute to Elizabeth Taylor as she concluded her act), and Derulo.
   The auction added to the US$210 million that AmFAR has already raised over the years. A 1964 Bentley S3 convertible sold for €700,000, a collection of dresses from the Carine Roitfeld-curated fashion show for €1·6 million, five Elizabeth Taylor-owned furs for €425,000, a painting of Bob Dylan by Brosnan for €1·2 million, an Ai Wei Wei sculpture for €550,000, a replica of Michaelangelo’s David authorized by the Accademia della Arti del Disegno for €350,000, a Palme d’Or for €220,000, and a private party with Paris Hilton for €200,000, a stay at Coco Privé in the Maldives for €125,000, and a private reception with HSH Prince Albert for €150,000.

It’s the calm before the gala AmFAR Gala at Cannes. At the première of Korean filmmaker Chang-dong Lee’s Beoning (버닝 in Korean, or Burning) on day 9, notable celebrities included La Toya Jackson, Toni Garrn (in Elie Saab), Adriana Lima (in Alberta Ferretti, with jewellery by Chopard), Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith, Mette Towley, Cindy Bruna (in Ashi Studio, with jewellery by de Grisogono), and Estelle Lefébure (in Yanina Couture, with jewellery by de Grisogono).
   L’Oréal Paris, meanwhile, released some studio beauty shots featuring their ambassadors Doutzen Kroes, Sonam Kapoor, Maria Borges, Ming Xi and Roy Wang.
