The AmFAR gala is always the social highlight of the Festival de Cannes, though this year’s, the 27th, was far more low-key, with guest numbers at 400 rather than the usual 900, and strict COVID-19 protocols in place.
   Global campaign chair Sharon Stone (in custom Dolce & Gabbana) played host, while Alicia Keys (in Chanel prêt-à-porter and Chanel haute joaillerie) performed live, at the outdoor affair held at the Villa Eilenroc in Antibes.
   Carine Roitfeld curated a live fashion show as part of this year’s charity auction.
   Guests included Stella Maxwell (in Atelier Versace), Kat Graham (in Nicolas Jebran), Nina Dobrev (in Mônot), Regina King (in Schiaparelli), Bella Thorne (in Miu Miu), Nicolas Maury (in Chanel), Rachel Brosnahan (in Vivienne Westwood), Lyna Khoudri (in Chanel), Vicky Krieps (in Chanel), Marina Ruy Barbosa (in Mônot), Dylan Penn (in Chanel), Lola Nicon (in Chanel), and stylist Jenke Ahmed Tailly (in Chanel).
   Prior to the 2021 event, the Cannes gala had raised over US$235 million in the fight against Aids.
   Photocalls and premières as the 2021 Cannes Film Festival closed saw Jeanne Balibar and Vicky Krieps in Chanel on day 11; Sharon Stone in Dolce & Gabbana, Maggie Gyllenhaal in Gucci, Gemma Chan in Oscar de la Renta, Leila Bekhti in Dior, Rosamund Pike in Dior, Mati Diop and Lyna Khoudri in Chanel, Adèle Exarchopoulos in Jacquemus, and Tilda Swinton in Schiaparelli, on the final day.
   Julia Ducournau won the Palme d’Or for her movie Titane, and wore Chanel as she accepted the honour. She is only the second female director to take home the prize.

Festival de Cannes 2021, day 6: Bella Hadid steals the show in Schiaparelli

Arguably, Bella Hadid stole the show in a Schiaparelli haute couture autumn–winter 2021–2 dress, designed by Daniel Roseberry, at the première of Tre Piani on day six of the Cannes Film Festival. The wool crêpe dress featured a low-cut neckline, and Hadid complemented it with a gilded brass necklace with trompe l’œil lungs, adorned with rhinestones.
   The Luxembourgeoise actress Vicky Krieps, star of Mia Hansen-Løve’s Bergman Island, is a fan of Chanel, wearing designs from the spring–summer 2021 haute couture collection at the film’s première. Krieps herself was wary of the front row but had been invited to a Chanel show with a handwritten note from Karl Lagerfeld, according to WWD. Lagerfeld, as it turned out, was a fan of Krieps, and the two met post-show.
   Krieps’s co-star Tim Roth wore a Prada dinner suit and brushed leather shoes; he similarly wore Prada at the photo call. Melissa George chose a gown from the Christian Dior haute couture spring–summer 2020 collection.
   During the day, Dylan Penn also chose from Chanel, wearing a pullover and trousers from the cruise 2021–2 collection at the photo call for Flag Day.

Festival de Cannes 2021 kicks off, with Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren, Charlotte Casiraghi

Filed by Lucire staff/July 8, 2021/5.00




Chanel

The change to July for the 2021 Cannes Film Festival has helped with guaranteeing great weather, and some will celebrate Bastille Day during the period, but overall there has been less buzz with COVID-19 still being a reality—even if France attempts to downplay it as the event went ahead.
   The opening ceremony saw Carla Bruni in Céline, Marion Cotillard, Angèle, Sébastian Tellier and Mati Diop in Chanel, Mélanie Thierry in Dior, and Lou Doillon in Gucci on the red carpet.
   L’Oréal Paris continued with its ambassadors walking the red carpet as part of its ongoing sponsorship, with Helen Mirren, Andie MacDowell, Leila Bekhti, Nidhi Sunil and Baptiste Giabiconi.
   The July 7 dinner to celebrate Leos Carax’s Annette, starring Marion Cotillard, was hosted by Chanel, for whom Cotillard is an ambassador.
   It ties in perfectly with Chanel’s cinema theme this year as No. 5 celebrated its centenary.
   Sixty guests attended the dinner with Chanel’s Virginie Viard at Bijou Plage, including Carax and Cotillard, Charlotte Casiraghi, Angèle, Soo Joo Park, Simon Helberg, Sparks, Tilda Swinton, Sébastian Tellier, Mati Diop, Naama Preis, Nadav Lapid, Rebecca Marder, Anne Berest, Rianne van Rompaey, Mica Argañaraz, Tonya Lewis Lee, Molly Lewis, Lola Nicon, Nicolas Maury, and Jenke Ahmed Tailly.
   Earlier in the day, Preis had appeared on the red carpet for Nadav Lapid’s Ahed’s Knee, in Chanel haute couture spring–summer 2021 complemented by Chanel high jewellery and shoes. Géraldine Pailhas chose from Chanel’s ready-to-wear line for spring 2021 as she walked the red carpet for François Ozon’s Tout s’est bien passé. Didi Stone Olomide walked for L’Oréal Paris at the latter, and Giabiconi returned for the French beauty brand.

Van Cleef & Arpels releases six new Perlée designs in Middle East ahead of global launch

Filed by Lucire staff/April 3, 2021/10.41


Van Cleef & Arpels has released six Perlée creations, exclusively for the Middle East first, coinciding with the holy season of Ramadan. They are available now in the region, two months ahead of their official global release.
   The new Perlée additions comprise three bracelets and three rings in gold hues. These feature the sweet clover motif, which are Van Cleef & Arpels’ symbol of luck. They also feature a border of gold beads, characteristic of other jewellery in the Perlée range.
   As the jewellery can be mixed and matched, they can suit a wearer’s every mood.
   The Perlée collection débuted in 2008 and draws on the maison’s history. Accented stones and motifs appeared in the 1920s, and it was also during this decade that Van Cleef & Arpels used the round bead setting in the collection. Golden beads became more ample in 1948. From 1963, in the Twist collection, golden beads appeared in more permutations, accentuating ornamental stones such as lapis lazuli and carnelian, and pearls. Bordering golden beads also appeared in Van Cleef & Arpels’ Alhambra collection in 1968. The designs have a direct link to these earlier collections.






 


Jewellery trends for 2021

Filed by Lucire staff/March 18, 2021/0.45

If you’re one of those fashion-forward girls who love to keep up with the latest trends no matter what—welcome to the club, you aren’t the only one! Here are the four hottest jewellery trends you need to know about in 2021, so keep on reading, check them out, and enjoy!

Mismatched earrings are all the rage
Mismatched earrings are the first jewellery trend that will be all the rage in 2021. These were a big part of this year’s fashion weeks, as many prominent designers and well known brands had them in their latest collections. The good news is that these come in so many sizes, shapes, and amazing styles. For example, you can opt for a simple stud earring in one ear and a stunning drop earring in the other. If you prefer hoops, you should definitely match two earrings of different sizes. Possibilities are truly infinite, but you know what? Their biggest advantage is that you don’t have to buy a brand new pair of mismatched earrings. All you need to do is to combine earrings from two different pairs, and voilà—you’re rocking one of the biggest jewellery trends in 2021!

Colourful beads are making a huge comeback …

If you’re a fan of flamboyant jewellery, you’ll be thrilled to hear that gorgeous colourful beads are making a huge comeback this year! That’s right, so don’t wait any longer and add a pop of colour to your everyday combos. For example, a simple choker made from vibrantly coloured beads is a perfect choice for all the ladies who want to add a twist to their outfits, but without going overboard with it. However, if you want to make your choker more summer-friendly, just add several shell pendants to it. These will certainly do the trick! On the other hand, if you love your arm candy more than anything, be sure to layer a dozen bracelets made from colourful beads. These are beyond perfect for hot summer days, so give them a try and you won’t make a mistake!

… As well as beautiful vintage pieces
Truth be told, vintage jewellery will never go out of style. Those pieces are here to stay, and guess what? They will be a huge part of this year’s fashion trends, too! So, if you have unique pieces of jewellery your Mom or Grandma used to wear, make sure to look for these and incorporate them into your looks ASAP! However, if you don’t have such pieces at your disposal, you should definitely buy at least one of them this year. For example, a lovely diamond locket is all you could ask for when it comes to beautiful vintage jewellery. What’s particularly special about this locket is that it can hold two tiny photos. You can wear this piece either on a short necklace or on a long one. We highly recommend wearing it on a longer necklace for a much better visual effect!

Everyone loves statement chain necklaces

On the other hand, if you love bold pieces of jewellery that can catch everyone’s attention, you shouldn’t skip statement chain necklaces this year! These have been gaining a lot of popularity over the last few months, which is why you should pay extra attention to them. What’s so interesting about them is the fact that they are quite simple when it comes to design. However, they are very edgy and eye-catching, too, which is exactly what makes them so wanted—both in haute couture and in street fashion. Apart from chain chokers, there are also chain necklaces of different lengths and sizes you can choose from. Of course, the most popular colour this year is gold, so be sure to get a chunky chain necklace in this bold shade. Trust us when we say that you won’t make a mistake with it!
   As you can tell, there are so many fabulous jewellery trends you can keep up with this year. These four are just some of them, so bear them in mind and stick to a trend that’s the closest to your personal style and preferences. One thing is certain—you won’t go wrong whichever trend you choose to for. It’s a promise!—Peter Minkoff

Nomos Glashütte shows classic timepieces for Valentine’s Day

Filed by Lucire staff/February 4, 2021/10.57



Nomos Glashütte, the largest manufacturer of mechanical watches in Germany, has a Valentine’s Day collection, spanning a variety of models, both self-winding and automatic, offered as single watches or in pairs. The reverse sides of the watches are big enough for a personal message to be engraved.
   Nomos also develops its own movements, and a great deal of the watches’ components are handmade. Only when the most demanding of precision is required—say a thousandth of a millimetre—does the company opt for machinery.
   The duo Nomos Glashütte has in mind is the Minimatik and Minimatik Champagne, powered by an ultra-thin automatic calibre. Individual watches include the Orio 33 in rose, the Orion 38 (top), and the classic Tangente, all of which have the brand’s quality stainless steel assembly. Finally, there is the Nomos sundial ring.
