Manigram From Cannes: Day 1
In addition to our live updates from the Cannes Film Festival, L’Oréal Paris global nail artist Tom Bachik will be keeping a daily diary for Style.com as he finger paints the brand’s ambassadors, including Inès de la Fressange, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Natasha Poly, and more.
“So excited to be heading back to Cannes with L’Oréal Paris for my second year! LAX to Paris via flight 65, then a quick hop over to Nice where we took a little drive down to Cannes to set up shop at the historic Hotel Martinez. Just your average 20-hour travel day! When I arrived the weather was amazing, so I decided to take a walk down the famous Le Croissant, er, La Croisette, to the Palais des Festivals theater and the famous red carpet. The city is fairly quiet, with most of the hustle being construction and preparation for the festival. Then some room service: a chicken Caesar salad and my favorite of French foods, French fries! These next two weeks will be crazy: prepping the spokespeople for daily appearances and evening red carpets, doing shooting tutorials, doing international interviews and workshops, and, hey, just because we can, throwing in a weeklong photo shoot! Here I am with the incredibly chic Inès de la Fressange during our shoot. Why? Because I’m worth it!”
