Seems like Cannes Film Festival is more about Fashion & Luxury than Films. Louis Vuitton and Roberto Cavalli are among the international luxury brands to have recently opened dedicated stores during the upcoming CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2011. Chanel is the latest brand to announce the set up of a pop up store in Cannes, during the festival, at Majestic Hotel.
Other major luxury brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Elie Saab, Gucci and Van Cleef Arpels are setting up showrooms at Martinez Hotel, mostly to provide assistance as well as last minute ”touches” for the hundreds of celebrities who will be wearing luxury branded clothing, accessories and jewellery.
Chanel is setting up its pop-up store or say, a temporary showroom at the luxury Eden Roc Hotel, in a large suite. Karl Lagerfeld, himself, will be present for several trunk shows and fittings with his ”muse” celebrities as well as top haute couture clients who will be in Cannes for the duration of the Film Festival.
Swiss jeweller CHOPARD, which is also a main sponsor of the CANNES Film Festival, will organize on May 14th, its traditional Trophée Chopard event, which this year will celebrate 10 years under the patronage of Robert de Niro, who is also the President of the Jury of this year’s edition. The Chopard Trophee rewards the talent of two young actors, each year, counting among its previous winners: Marion Cotillard, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Diane Kruger and Gael Garcia-Bernal.
At the Elle-Dior party hosted for the ‘Aisha’ starcast, Ayesha Thapar was enjoying the evening with her bunch of Boyz – Rohit, Rahul and Amol. When Sonam Kapoor was aggressively auctioning the Lady Dior Bag for Breast Cancer Foundation (Oh, that reminds me, Sonam post her 30kilos downsizing has lost her boobs too.) and egged fashionistas to bid but walked past Ayesha, I saw her perturbed. But when she was surrounded by the shutterbugs, Ayesha got so annoyed that she left the party.
Wonder why Ayesha Thapar, once a toast of P3 is shunning it. My experience says that when a P3 girl is getting hitched, she usually stay’s away from P3 so that no wrong assumptions are made about her. Does that rule apply to Ayesha too? Is she getting hitched???
