There is a palpable excitement in the French Riviera as Hollywood”s finest arrive for the Cannes Film Festival.
And no one is more thrilled than local beauty Berenice Bejo who triumphed in The Artist and is hosting the opening ceremony.
The Gallic siren is committed to maintaining Cannes” reputation for heady, vintage glamour.
“It’s very important to play the game and give people something a little bit glamorous and, you know, not too normal,” she told ! recently.
“I love it when actors make you dream a little bit, as they used to do.”
Helping Berenice cultivate that A-list allure are glittering gems from jewellers, Chopard – who have sponsored the event for 15 years.
“I”ve already chosen two pieces for Cannes,” she revealed. “Earrings and maybe something for the hair.”
“I like the rings, the pink stone is beautiful. Chopard has a lot of choices.”
