Blasblog: Heaven Is A Tiny Little Place Called The Pianoke Room


I’ve followed the fine folks from Purple magazine all over the French Riviera this week (a quick visit to could tell you as much, but please don’t forward some of those pictures to my mom). Their fourth annual Cannes Film Festival fête, held last night at a temporary seaside outpost of Le Baron, made for a fabulous finale. Things were typically Purple: deviant behavior masterminds Olivier Zahm and André Saraiva for ringleaders, a DJ set from Caroline Gaimari (center, above), and loads and loads of pretty people. Liya Kebede was there fresh from the Chopard Female Revelation award we told you about yesterday, having a dance-off with her entourage. And while a supermodel dance-off is typically a highlight for me, this party had something even better: a tiny little space referred to as the Pianoke Room, only accessible via a small door within a door, where sing-alongs took place. That meant a live pianist (who someone told me was a former gigolo) led all the hipsters on renditions of show tunes. I mean, I was in heaven!
