When: 13-24 May 2009
Cannes is the ultimate playground for serious fashionistas. To survive the glamour, back-to-back parties and beautiful sunshine, you need enough dresses, shoes, bags and jewellery to clothe a small nation – and lots of stamina.
The Carlton Hotel, close to the Bay of Cannes, provided the perfect setting for soaking up the style scene and the bumping into a few well-known faces – Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese to name but a few (I even got a Bonsoir from Eric Cantona). But, when I think back to those wonderful weeks mingling with the world’s acting elite, it’s the parties that stick in my mind. And what parties they were!
