This Year’s Cannes Do, R.I.P. Bijan, The Royal Dress Revealed (Maybe), And More…

-------


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]

John Varvatos Rocks Melrose

-------

Awards season may be over, but the spring charity circuit is in full swing. John Varvatos went big this year with his eighth annual Stuart House benefit, which serves the special needs of child victims of sexual abuse and their families. “With each year we’ve been doing this, we’ve managed to make it bigger and better. It used to be this small thing with up-and-coming artists, and now we’ve got so many people who are here to help and perform that we’ve managed to shut down Melrose,” Varvatos said on Sunday, motioning to the cordoned-off L.A. street that served as the afternoon’s backdrop. Along with co-hosts Patrick Dempsey and his wife, Avon’s Jillian Dempsey (not to mention a handful of Patrick’s Grey’s Anatomy cast mates), Mick Rock manned the portrait booth, K.D. Lang performed an outdoor concert for the crowd, and Shepard Fairey took to the DJ booth for an impromptu afternoon set.

At her inaugural event for the cause—what she called her “first date” with Varvatos—Zoe Saldana (left, with the designer) was eager to show support. “It’s so important to lend your voice and participate in any cause that aids children who are victims,” she said. But it was also an afternoon off for the star, who has been enjoying a bit of downtime since her jam-packed 2010. “I’m just happy to be relaxing. Last year was such a beautiful and rich year, but I’m still recovering.” And taking the year off meant she got to forgo the red carpet and engage as spectator instead. “I was happy to see my stylist Petra Flannery, who was styling all these amazing girls for the red carpet, and they were stunning. As a girl, that just made me so happy.”
