Another Reason We’d Die To Go to Cannes: Carine Roitfeld Plans All-Black Fashion Show

The uber-chic Carine Roitfeld in her signature black

Everyone has one word on their lips these days: Cannes. And whether you know how to pronounce it or not (hint: it does NOT have the nasal, Chicago ‘a’ sound), chances are you want the scoop on all the glamour, the parties and general glitterati of the annual film festival.

Among the countless galas, dinners, and screenings, there is a LOT of fashion to be had. And this year, there’s even more of a reason to be bummed your invite got lost in the mail because the matriarch of French fashion, Carine Roitfeld is actually staging her very own fashion show!  As part of the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala fundraiser on May 24 at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden Roc in Cap d’Antibes, Roitfeld will curate a full-scale fashion show, the theme of which will be……wait for it…..the perfect black wardrobe.

The queen of chic knows quite a but about the hue, considering it’s been as signature to her style as the bob is to Anna Wintour’s. Brands that were hand picked for the show include Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, Emilio Pucci, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Versace.

The entire collection will be auctioned off as a single lot at the event.  And if you think the show itself sounds amazing, the guest list is sure to inspire some serious party fantasies. The chairs for the benefit alone include Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Karl Lagerfeld, Bérénice Bejo, Ryan Kavanaugh and amfAR chairman Kenneth Cole. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see the post-event photos!
