Joanne Black Olivia Cole Cannes DSquared

Joanne Black & Olivia Cole @ the Cannes DSquared Party

Where: The Monaco Billionaire Club

Joanne Black Style: LGB jeans and shirt, Sergio Rossi shoes and Wunderkind jacket

It’s one thing to arrive fashionably late to a party, but it’s quite another to be in danger of not arriving at all! That was the dilemma facing my friends and I after our clutch died on a drive to Monaco for the fabulous DSquared bash. Thankfully though, with five miles to go, it was downhill all the way to Monaco, so we were still able to make a grand entrance!

After wowing the festival with their eyewear launch party last year, DSquared brothers Dean and Dan were in great form as hosts at Flavio Briatore’s club. Once recovered from our ordeal, my friend Olivia Cole and I decided to treat ourselves to a little style spotting. I’d opted for jeans, but Olivia looked stunning in a short LBD – she certainly has the legs for it.

Special style mentions have to go to Flavio Briatore’s wife Elisabetta, who wore a delightful strapless black dress; Boris Becker and his beautiful wife who looked every bit the star couple and Lady Victoria Hervey who stepped out in DSquared.
