Who would be invited to your dream dinner party? Would names like Kaia Gerber or Earl Cave make the guest list? If your idea of a good time is Lisa from BLACKPINK, V of BTS, Hedi Slimane and Suzanne Lindon all in one room, then let me tell you, there is a world in which that exists. At the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival, as the sun set and critics turned their sights to the evening's premieres, a small group hand-selected by Hedi Slimane made their way to the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc for an intimate dinner hosted by Celine.
Eden Roc, with the kind of storied, luxurious reputation that precedes itself, was the perfect setting for the star-soaked affair. With its uninterrupted views of the Riviera and secluded location, the place is a natural fit for an evening led by the French Maison.
Rapper Future and Australian actress Olivia DeJonge, known for her role in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, could be seen filing into the villa, first for a photocall, then cocktail hour before eventually settling in for a candlelit dinner. Joe Alwyn also attended, in what was his first public appearance following his split from Taylor Swift.
The images that follow were taken just as the guests were warming up from the cocktails, mingling, laughing and debriefing on all the highlights at Cannes Film Festival so far. Below, your glimpse into the intimate affair that was Celine's star-studded dinner at Eden Roc. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
