The Cannes film fest is close at hand. And if you’re headed for the sunny South of France, you’re not alone: Gwen Stefani, Patrick Dempsey, Milla Jovovich, Freida Pinto, and Michelle Yeoh will all be joining you. Style.com has learned exclusively that the quintet will be partnering with L’Oréal to host the star-studded after-party for amfAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS gala and auction. See you at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Rock (above). [amfAR]
A moment of silence for late Iranian-American designer and fragrance guru Bijan—just Bijan, please—who made his name on the luxest (and, he bragged, most expensive) menswear in the world. The designer is credited with turning Rodeo Drive into a destination with his Bijan showroom, as well as for his famous ads (in which he co-starred alongside Michael Jordan, Bo Derek, a few nuns, and a rabbi—though not all at the same time).

Last we checked in with Fashion Girls for Japan, they were organizing a designer-stocked sample sale to raise money for earthquake relief. The Girls are back with a new T-shirt and tote line—printed with the Berger & Wild-designed I O NY logo—for sale on their Web site; proceeds will again go to earthquake relief. (And if you’re curious, the sample sale raised $270,000.) [WWD]

And the Huffington Post claims to know who’s designing Kate Middleton’s dress, for real this time—and it’s Libélula designer Sophie Cranston. Royalphiles, arm yourself with a grain of salt and read on. [HuffPo]
Harry Potter. Avatar. Mulberry? One of these things isn’t quite like the others—though all three have benefited from the magic touch of Framestore, the visual effects company that worked with creative directors Ronnie Cooke Newhouse and Stephen Wolstenholme of House and Holme and Park Village director Luke Losey to bring Mulberry’s Tim Walker-shot campaign to life. Rather than do a standard film, the English label used animation, rotoscoping, and repainting to make the candy-colored shots of Lindsey Wixson and Nimue Smit pop to life. The result is a minute-and-a-half short that’s part Alice in Wonderland—with blooming hydrangeas and wandering piglets—and part atmospheric editorial. It debuts today, here and on Mulberry.com.
With January issues now in hand and February issues soon to arrive, it’s officially Spring ’11 ad season.

Set your DVRs: According to her agency, gap-toothed model of the moment Lindsey Wixson (left) will be on The View tomorrow morning with Donatella Versace. One can only imagine what Joy Behar will find to say about her now-famous pout. [@MarilynAgencyNYC]
Speaking of Twitter revelations, Kim Kardashian took to the tweet this week to announce she’d fallen and broken her toe. It didn’t take paps long to track down the shoes she’d been wearing: a pair of leopard-print, studded Louboutin booties. Racked tracked down M. Louboutin himself for comment: “Didn’t she or one of her sisters hurt their ankle with some studs or something one time?” he asks. “Maybe it’s just a clumsy family?” He did admit, however, that he himself tripped and fell in his own shoes recently—though, he was careful to note, he’d been wearing flats.

The latest high-profile wedding coup for Zac Posen? According to rumors, the next celebrity to traipse down the aisle in one of his gowns isn’t even real (but no less rabidly followed for that). It’s Bella Swan (a.k.a. Kristen Stewart), heroine of the Twilight series. [Fashionologie]
Carey Mulligan scoops up the best-dressed award from Harper’s Bazaar‘s U.K. edition, besting Natalia Vodianova, Victoria Beckham, and even Britain’s “first lady,” Samantha Cameron. [Telegraph]
And the Times is the latest outlet to sing the song of Olivier Zahm, devoting a long profile to the Purple auteur and (in the words of fellow smutty photographer Andrew Richardson) “living Facebook page.” [NYT]
On the runway, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s ultra-theatrical clothes take center stage, which makes it easy to overlook that the show usually has a strong cast of catwalkers. You’ve got Andrew Weir and Marques Nolan of ACW Worldwide to thank for that. The two were backstage before the V&R show, where Lindsey, Karlie, Abbey, Valerija, and the rest were getting ready. They sent back a few exclusive pics of the work in gorgeous progress.
