CHOPARD

OFFICIAL PARTNER OF THE
CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Since 1998, Chopard has formed a glittering duo with the Cannes International Film Festival to which it serves as official partner. In addition to crafting the legendary Palme d’or in its workshops along with all the trophies to be distributed at the closing prize-giving ceremony, and adorning the stars for the traditional “Montée des Marches” ritual thanks to the magnificent Red Carpet Collection, the Maison also awards rising talents with the Trophée Chopard as well as organising unforgettable annual parties. This year, Chopard is once again, set to dazzle and while bringing its own inimitable sparkle to the legendary Croisette.

THE QUINTESSENCE OF GLAMOUR

CHOPARD LOVES CINEMA

Over the past few decades, Chopard has expressed the quintessence of glamour through the creation of unique Haute Joaillerie items adorning the greatest film stars. Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sharon Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Freida Pinto, Fan Bing Bing, Zhang Ziyi, Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Deneuve and Jane Fonda, to mention but a few, have all dazzled on the red carpet wearing Haute Joaillerie treasures crafted by Chopard.

Certain images remain etched in collective memory. Many will notably recall Angelina Jolie in 2007, resplendent on the red carpet in a yellow gown enhanced with daffodil diamonds. And how could one forget the natural and disarming beauty of Julia Roberts, on her first appearance at the 2016 Cannes Festival, strolling around barefoot with her decolletage illuminated by a necklace set with a magnificent emeralds?

The Official Palme d'Or of Cannes Film Festival

THE AWARD

PALME D'OR

Coveted by every film director on the planet, the Palme d’or, each year honours the best film screened at the Cannes Film Festival. Redesigned in 1998 by Caroline Scheufele, it has since become a radiant symbol of the love story uniting Chopard with the most glamorous film festival in the world. In addition to the Palme d'or for the best feature film and the mini Palme for the best short film – both made in ethical ‘Fairmined’ certified gold – the Maison’s workshops also produce rock crystals engraved with a palm branch for all the other awards, making Chopard the artisan of all these prestigious official prizes and catalysts in their own right of a wealth of emotions.

TALENTS OF TOMORROW

TROPHEE CHOPARD

Each year, the Trophée Chopard, created in 2001, highlights the up-and-coming generation of the international film industry and shrewdly wagers on the talents of tomorrow by rewarding both a young actress and a young actor poised for a successful career on the silver screen. From Audrey Tautou to Marion Cotillard, from Léa Seydoux to Adèle Exarchopoulos, along with Shailene Woodley, Ezra Miller and John Boyega, actors who have triumphed both in indie movies and blockbuster productions: all these laureates have confirmed their promise by embarking on brilliant life-changing careers.

red carpet collection 2021

Like the directors celebrated at the Cannes Film  Festival, Caroline Scheufele, orchestrates each of her collections around a narrative, inspired this year by Paradise and the lush nature of the mythological or real places populating her fantasy repertoire. Celebrating the origins of an odyssey, the Red Carpet Collection is a stunning demonstration of jewellery-making, paying tribute to cinema and the actresses who embody its radiant energy. The 74 High Jewellery creations, for the 74th edition of the Festival, use goldsmithing and gemsetting craftsmanship to express the dreamy richness of this fabulous theatre of dreams, a Garden of Eden.
