LVMH Saves the Rainy Day

-------

LVMH is helping to bring a hint of vintage French flare to the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on May 15. WWD reports today that the luxury conglomerate is helping to fund the digital restoration of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, a 1964 Jacques Demy-directed musical film that starred Catherine Deneuve. The film will screen in the festival’s Cannes Classics component—and we expect to see more than a few Vuitton and Givenchy frocks in the arrivals snaps.

Great Gatsby Will Open Cannes Film Fest

-------

Baz Luhrmann’s long-awaited adaptation of The Great Gatsby, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire, will open the 66th Cannes Film Festival, it was confirmed today. It’s a spiritual return to the area for Fitzgerald, who wrote some of his greatest work on the Riviera, and an actual one for Luhrmann, whose first film, Strictly Ballroom, screened at the Festival some 21 years ago. (His Moulin Rouge! opened Cannes, too.) Expect Prada on the red carpet—not only is Mulligan a favorite of the house, Miuccia Prada also worked with the costume designer, Catherine Martin, on some of the film’s looks.

More Marilyn

-------

Let the Marilyn Monroe tributes continue. Just last month at the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard hosted an exhibition of rarely seen images of the icon and unveiled its Monroe collection of diamond necklaces and earrings. Today she’s being toasted in Milan by artist Alessandro Gedda and Italian footwear label Fratelli Rossetti. Gedda’s 50-painting exhibition, commemorating the 50 years since her death, opened at Società Umanitaria (the first stop of A Tribute to Marilyn‘s multi-city tour that will end in New York next month). Also in the mix are five sculptures inspired by Fratelli Rossetti’s Lady Brera pump. For its part, the shoe label has created a limited-edition version of that style in Marilyn red croc skin, available at its stores around the world. Here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at the shoe.

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.

Who Made Your Cannes Best-Dressed List?

-------

The Oscars are blink-and-you’ll-miss-it compared to the twelve-day marathon that is the Cannes Film Festival; the Croisette won’t clear until Sunday. This year’s big red-carpet stories? The splashy debut of a new line—Gucci’s couture collection, Premiere—which turned up on Salma Hayek Pinault and Naomi Watts, and the emergence of Emilio Pucci as the go-to brand for something short and super-sexy (see: Evangeline Lilly). Also noteworthy was the high-profile rejection of gowns: Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche both stepped out in—gasp—pants.
