The scent of romance wafted gently through the dreamy setting of the Chopard LOVE Night during an evening full of surprises, notably featuring a dramatic performance by opera singers Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov, a stage act by artiste Dita von Teese and a runway show of Haute Joaillerie creations from the Red Carpet Collection. A concert by global superstar Mariah Carey was the crowning moment of the night's festivities.
This year, Chopard has chosen LOVE as the central theme of its activities at the 72nd Cannes International Film Festival, also setting the tone for the grand soirée organized by Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele; and at which the decoration designed by the Maison embodied a splendid tribute to the film sets of the great romantic movies. Guests were welcomed on a coloured carpet made by Aquafil from ENONYL® – a fibre made entirely from recycled plastic such as end-of-life fishing nets – and perfectly reflecting the Maison’s ethical commitments.
Finally, when the clock struck midnight, international pop and R&B star Mariah Carey appeared on stage, electrifying the audience with her legendary hit songs: Emotions, Always be my baby, My All, Touch my Body, Vision of Love, We Belong Together and Hero. Following the prolonged applause honouring this exceptional concert, guests danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Cassidy on the turntables.
