Cannes Ready

-------

The truth is, I’ll be home in New York this weekend, taking long walks in Central Park and having friends over for a barbecue. But a girl can dream. And where I’d really like to be spending my weekend (and, what the hell, next week) is Cannes.

What to pack for the French Riviera? Neon and zebra-print K. Jacques St. Tropez flat sandals ($315) to wear with an all-white outfit, or to pair with crazy printed cotton pants. And this Proenza Schouler boho dress ($1,650) is perfect to wear from the pool to cocktails. For evening, I’ll take my inspiration from Giovanna Battaglia, who was the star of the Cannes red carpet last year at the amfAR gala—I would go with vintage, in my case, this Chanel one-shoulder gown from 1986 ($2,298) with a couple of bows in the back and peplum on the waist. To finish the look, Irene Neuwirth‘s black and diamond earrings (price on request) would bring it all up to date, as would my customized Charlotte Olympia clutch ($745), embroidered with my name.

Carine Takes Cannes

-------

The amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala is always a hot ticket at the Cannes Film Festival (kicking off today), but leave it to Carine Roitfeld to make it even more extravagant. For the first time ever, the fundraiser at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in Cap d’Antibes will include a full-on runway show, orchestrated by Roitfeld. On display: black, black, and more black. The show will reportedly feature her idea of the perfect black wardrobe, complete with looks from Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Dior, Christopher Kane, and Givenchy. One lucky buyer will then get the ultimate Carine wardrobe when the entire collection is auctioned off as a single lot at the event.

Yesterday, Macy’s Inc. sued Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. “in a bid to block a licensing deal between the housewares company and J.C. Penney Co.” Reportedly, “Macy’s claims Martha Stewart Living’s deal with J.C. Penney violates the terms of an exclusive pact Macy’s has to sell Martha Stewart Living products at its stores.” [Huff Po]

Rent the Runway has tapped Lucy Sykes Rellie as its new fashion director. Rellie originally started working with the brand six months ago in a consulting capacity, WWD reports. [WWD]
