Cannes Film Festival - Monday


James Gray has been one of my favorite directors since Little Odessa in the early 1990's, and his last feature, We Own The Night, was beyond poignant. So I was thrilled to attend the premiere of his new film, Two Lovers; judging by the applause Gray received, so was everyone at the Palais des Festivals, including Sean Penn and Puff Daddy, who both showed up for the screening. Gray, visibly moved, arrived with both his leading ladies, Vinessa Shaw and Gwyneth Paltrow, the latter escorted by a friend, fashion designer Valentino. They all sat just a couple of rows ahead of me... how thrilling!

I walked the red carpet in a black Joseph pencil skirt, a beige Nina Ricci cropped jacket and a small, black vintage hat with a veil... I'm holding a small vintage Bottega Veneta bag - my only actual handbag!

Make sure to visit this blog again later today - I have surprises in store for you!

Ton " bibi" noir va surement plaire a Chloe van Paris qui a eu un petit commentaire sur celui que portait Ms B.Sarkosy lors de la visite a Londres...pour moi ces "bibi" ont un petit air de ressemblance!

jean-louis: I love this bibi because it's not square.
Just a touch of retro-fun. A sexy skirt with high black heels, the mix of beige and black. The Bibi add to the look a little " sexy touch " with the veil.
Marie-Laure, you should try to always keep this smoking eyes make-up.
You are tonight on the red carpet a true fashion icon.

THESIL - well, er, yes, it's me... The red carpet is fun fun fun!

MARIE - if you haven't seen anything by James Gray, I recommend you start with last year's "We own the night"; it's probably out on DVD already.

ALICE - venant d'une ragazza aussi incroyablement belle et elegante que toi, ces mots que touchent vraiment beaucoup... Merci merci merci, tu es adorable!
