The world of Cannes through the eyes of Kayture


This year, at the Cannes Film Festival, we had the pleasure of welcoming Kristina Bazan and James Chardon from Kayture. The lovely Swiss fashion blogger shares with us her best memories and impressions of our Red Carpet Collection. We have asked James to take backstage pictures. Discover these amazing black and white images on our Tumblr blog.

1. What are your most memorable moments from the Cannes Film Festival?

Many of them will remain in my heart forever. The Cannes film festival is a period so rich in emotions. Having the chance to be surrounded be so many incredibly talented people and so many luxurious craftsmanship treasures such as Chopard jewels is already the biggest, most unforgettable memory… Each “Montée Des Marches” got my heart pounding, yet I would say that attending the Amfar Gala, and celebrating the evening at Chopard’s table with the presence of one of my favorite actresses Marion Cotillard was something I will never forget. The jewels I wore that night were the most incredible pieces I have ever seen, such an honor to able to given that opportunity. I can’t be more grateful.

2. Which creation from our High Jewelry Red Carpet Collection 2014 would you fall for?

The sapphire and diamond set that Adriana Lima wore during Chopard’s Backstage party was definitely one of my favorite pieces of the High Jewelry Red Carpet Collection 2014. It’s the perfect symbol of the brand’s extreme precision yet also ability to create pieces that are much more that simple jewels, they are real fashion statements. The incredible pieces I wore to the Amfar gala were also some jaw droppers. They got heads turning the whole night.

3. Which of your Red Carpet looks is your favorite and why?

I will always remember my first day at the Cannes film festival and the adrenaline of the first Montée Des Marches of the season. I was dressed in Dior and wore the most stunning ring by Chopard from the High Jewelry Red Carpet Collection. My heart was racing and when I arrived on the red carpet I noticed some of my dear fans waiting and screaming my name. It was so overwhelming and impressive, I simply couldn’t believe it. It gave all the confidence I needed to walk up the stairs!

4. If you had to choose only one backstage picture photographed for Chopard, which one would it be?

James has such an eye to capture moments. He sees things in such a beautiful and aesthetic way, and you can see this sensitivity in his photography. It’s hard to pick just one but I’d say that I love the backstage images he created of Eva Herzigova’s shoot at the port. She’s such an iconic and beautiful woman, I think James did a fantastic job capturing candid moments of this experience.
