64th Cannes Film Festival: De Grisogono Ignites Eden Roc
May 21, 2011 Leave a comment
This year, Swiss jeweller de Grisogono celebrates its 10 years at Cannes. The Genevese House hosted yet another of its Crazy Chic Parties last Tuesday to celebrate. The event was held at the Eden Roc Hotel on Cap d’Antibes, an exclusive location on the Côte d’Azur. De Grisogono founder Fawaz Gruosi ignited the Cape d’ Antibes with a Gipsy Glam themed evening playing host to over 800 guests from the worlds of show business, fashion and Hollywood.
The lucky few who were invited included celebrities such as Bianca Balti, Adriana Karembeu, Karolina Kurkova, Naomi Campbell, Leonardo di Caprio, Rob Lowe, Emmanuel of Savoy and wife Clotilde Coureau, Goldie Hawn, Quincy Jones, Adriana Lima, Ivana Trump, and Harvey Weinstein. A red carpet bordered in flame lit candles and torches welcomed guests, as they plunged into the mysterious gypsy universe of Mr. Gruosi. Synonymous with de Grisogono, Hollywood glamour was everywhere. A ceaseless procession of stars in scintillating gowns and luxurious de Grisogono jewellery quickly filled the hotel.
The de Grisogono collection Gypsy and Zigana proved perfect for the occasion as guests explored the latest collection including the Instrumento N°Uno watch collection (also celebrating 10 years) – an iconic watch range inspired by Pop Art. The evening continued with a succession of surprises, one more elaborate than the next. Sumptuous cocktails, the sounds of the Black Eyed Peas and a Gypsy King or two, and midnight fireworks that filled a starry Côte d’Azur sky. Impressive on their own, but the highlight of the night was the unveiling of the custom de Grisogono X Maybach 62S Saloon. Diamond encrusted rear centre armrest looked impressive, but you better have some trustworthy guests riding in the back and bulletproof tinted windows on that whip. De Grisogono and Maybach are currently looking at further options for individualizing the interior with diamonds and other gemstones on the steering wheel, shift lever and seats. Good luck finding a company that will insure it.
