Caroline Scheufele and Rihanna invited Bruno Mars to ignite the most thrilling evening at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cannes, May 19th 2017
Each year, the Chopard soirée is one of the hottest tickets during the Cannes fortnight. Amid a supercharged atmosphere at Port Pierre Canto, Bruno Mars, electrified the 600 or so guests – notably including superstar Rihanna – who attended the SPACE evening event, surrounded by a stunning decor.
It was to Port Canto, on the Croisette, decked out in a futuristic decor specially designed and built for the occasion, that Chopard invited its guests for one of the Festival’s most eagerly anticipated soirée. Julianne Moore, Will Smith, Isabelle Huppert, Eva Herzigova, Rossy de Palma, Paz Vega, Clotilde Courau, Araya Hargate, Kendall Jenner, Sara Sampaio, Tina Kunakey, Phoebe Dahl, Bella Hadid, Thylane Blondeau and Latifa Arfaoui were in attendance. Everyone had honoured the “Galactic with a touch of diamond!” dress code.
Chopard co-president Caroline Scheufele said on this occasion: “The Cannes Festival is a must for Chopard. Each year, I seek to dazzle my guests by offering them an original and unforgettable evening.”
During the course of the dinner, served in a space shuttle, fashion models paraded past, adorned in the latest Red Carpet creations from Chopard and wearing clothes by Elie Saab, before being joined for the grand finale by super models Arizona Muse, Winnie Harlow, Isabeli Fontana and Petra Nemcova. Guests then found themselves teleported into space. Upon their arrival, they were welcomed by Cathy Guetta, queen of Paris and Ibiza night life, enlisted by Caroline Scheufele to guarantee a memorable experience.
The highlight of the evening was the unique moment that Bruno Mars shared with Chopard and its guests. A brilliant natural-born performer, he was accompanied by a DJ and set the Chopard SPACE evening on fire by singing Treasure, That’s what I like, Chunky and Locked out of Heaven. Pop superstar Rihanna – who had marked her first ever appearance at the Cannes Festival by climbing the steps earlier that evening adorned in creations from the Rihanna ♥ Chopard collection, designed in cooperation with Caroline Scheufele – graced the soirée with her presence.
