If you guys have been following my social media these last couple of days, then you might know what a crazy whirl of joy, excitement and craziness this year’s Cannes film festival was. Each year, I wait for this moment with so much anticipation, the french riviera, the gowns, the champagne, the people… It is definitely one of the most glamorous events of the year. Cannes is the right time to put the game on big times and bring some of that fire to the red carpet. Okay, okay, now let’s bring it back to reality a bit. A lot are speculating about the festival and how it’s been progressively becoming a “media circus” (same comments being said about each fashion weeks, Coachella and any occasion people take to actually dress up and play around). It is true, sadly, that Cannes is becoming less and less about the movies and yet more and more about the models, the celebrities and the parties themselves. The Cannes film festival is filled with gossip, who’s been on the boat of who, who flirted with who and more precisely… at which party? Half of the actual actors aren’t even staying in Cannes, they rent a suite at the Eden Roc until the amfar to escape Cannes’s craziness… And yet still, there’s something magical about it and the whole world talks about it for 10 days.
So yes part of me is a bit confused. Are we loving or are we hating the festival all of a sudden? I simply cannot imagine myself hating it. I’ve been there, done that, went there, saw the movie and honestly loved the experience. Plus, it was my biggest honor to attend the festival as an official L’Oréalista for the first time this year! A very exciting news that came with a bit of it’s own pressure. Gotta own up to that title. I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy the festival for many seasons now, but this year, it was a completely different story. My schedule was orchestrated minute per minute, second per second with interviews, photoshoots, snapchat-instagram-twitter takeovers and so on. Being a L’Oréalista is not as peaceful or relaxing as it seems. It was so crazy that I even wondered, am I presenting a movie or what? How come my schedule is so insane? Meeting all the girls, the models, the actresses and being united with the entire L’Oréal team was an absolute blast and the most surreal, special feeling.
The other half of our time in Cannes, we spent it with our beloved Chopard team. It felt like being back with our swiss family and people we’ve known for years. I will never forget my first Cannes film festival and first Montée Des Marches with Chopard 4 years ago, the excitement, the nerves and now… what a crazy evolution. This year again, I had the biggest pleasure to present their “WILD” party and announce the evening’s performances. Oh you know, nothing special… Joke. Just some freaking incredible Diana Ross and genius Mark Ronson. And even though, judging by the short snipped on my social media, you guys jumped on me to say how bad my hosting was, trust me that I enjoyed it, and even had a bunch of people coming up afterwards to give me a high five (it’s because I didn’t post the part where I began making stupid jokes…).
Even thought I spent most of my festival in gowns, our time with Chopard was more peaceful and relaxing. We took the time to climb on the roof of the iconic Martinez hotel to shoot this series of images where I am wearing some of Chopard’s beautiful Happy Hearts jewelry and Happy Diamonds watch while shooting with my favorite Justin Wu. It was one of these days where I could wear a more casual outfits so I decided to match it to more fun and playful jewelry, this watch being an absolute dream to wear. It’s such a sophisticated, timeless pieces and yet the little moving diamond bring so much charm to the watch that is truly a jewel and perfection in terms of craftsmanship.

Il est vrai que nous n'avons rien vu de ton accueil de la soirée "wild" de Chopard, mais je n'en doute pas tu as dû être largement à la hauteur!
Je trouve en te suivant depuis un beau bout de temps, que tu restes quelqu'un de simple, même après tout ce que tu as vécu, tout l'univers qui t'entoure etc... donc vraiment bravo! Et même encore tu m'impressionnes, car avec tes derniers postes sur Kayture on a l'impression que tu remets en question un bon nombre de choses, tu te poses beaucoup et de bonnes questions, sur ta vie, la superficialité du milieu, les artifices de Canne... J'ai même l'impression que tu deviens plus modeste, vrai, sincère et simple encore avec le temps qui passe!! Tes postes récents sont différents des autres mais ce n'est pas pour autant qu'ils ne sont pas intéressant, ni même décevant, au contraire!
Bref tu m'impressionnes vraiment et je peux te dire qu'un bon nombre de personnes doit t'admirer, être fière de toi, et moi la première.
You're so stunninghttp://fashionbackyard.blogspot.fr
It must have been amazing to go to the film festival! And by the way, these pictures are really lovely xxxhttp://fallingforablog.blogspot.com.es/2016/05/on-street.html
Lovely Look! Perfect as always!
Great post Kristina! I think fashion, celebrities and parties has become a massive part of the festival, like a lot of other ones too. But I think the essence of it is still there: admiring the art of film making and the creativity each actor, director and artist brings to cinema. Lovely pictures too! x

Loving all of these beautiful Chopard pieces <3 They look so pretty and elegant, yet not at all over the top! The simplicity of it is so beautiful and matches your outfit really nicely :) Hope you had lots of fun at Cannes!
Love the watch!
“Be not alarmed, madam, on receiving this letter, by the apprehension of its containing any repetition of those sentiments or renewal of those offers which were last night so disgusting to you. I write without any intention of paining you, or humbling myself, by dwelling on wishes which, for the happiness of both, cannot be too soon forgotten: and the effort which the formation and the perusal of this letter must occasion, should have been spared, had not my character required it to be written and read. You must, therefore, pardon the freedom with which I demand your attention; your feelings, I know, will bestow it unwillingly, but I demand it of your justice.”
In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.
To be a friend
Suffice, to utter your name
To enter in the books of history
And flags raise for my arrival
And become Pharaoh of words
You extract all the feelings
Enough to love a woman like you
To sink into the sea of tenderness
You are a woman, will not be repeated
In the history of roses
In the memory of lilies and basil
Nothing will change me
Affection will remain stronger
River of love will not stop flowing
Heartbeat will not stop throbbing
Emigrant pigeon will not stop flying
Until love extends the horizon
And becomes the only satellite
I will not turn this love
A Package, straw, eaten by fire
Nothing fills my eyes
Or birth trees
I do not care about any talk
Overwritten on party cards
What delightes me
If you give me any word
To hug,in my exile
And sleep like a happy Kid
I do not remember, but your voice
While bells knock on Sundays
I do not remember, but your perfume
While I sleep on the grass leaves
I do not remember, but your face
While the snow falling on my clothes
How I wish I loved you in the age of enlightenment
In the era of photography
In the era of the pioneers
Where worship without walls
And words without walls
And dreams without walls
How I wish I met you one day
Survival collar at the time of the flood
Give me your right hand
So used to hide me now
Give me your left hand
To settle in the hereafter
My paradise virgin

I can't... when people are so jealous and criticise others just because they are jealous. Good on you to take on your stride. It must be wonderful experience being in Cannes and experience all that glamour and glitz the way the French do it. Iove the French Riviera. It's never try hard yet it always manages to be one of the most wonderful places in Europe.
you look amazing! I love the unique statement ring!
