If The Devil's In The Details. . .

How about these from the house of Chopard special "Red Carpet" collection for the 62nd annual Festival de Cannes: 
  • 62 unique pieces.
  • 10,000 carats of precious stones.
  • 15,000 hours of work.
  • 63,000 precious stones.
  • 400 parures.
  • 32 jewelers working six months to produce the collection.
Among the women who wore the splendid pieces were: Mariah Carey, Hilary Swank, Marion Cotillard (remember, she won the 2008 best actress Oscar for her truer than true portrayal of Edith Piaf ?), Eva Herzigova and pictured above Isabelle Huppert (that big blue stone finishing off the pavé diamond collar around her neck is a 164 carat Ceylon sapphire); Laura Marante and once again the exquisite Michelle Yeoh.

While we're on the subject of details, L'Oreal did all the makeup for the Festival. You have no idea the quantity of products it takes to make one look natural in a photograph. Don't you just love Michelle's false eyelashes? 

Isn't it refreshing to see these faces made-up, but not touched-up? (Compare Huppert's pictures here to the worked over shot on the May 11th post. Not a wrinkle or a freckle in sight. Shocking, non?)

I like the unretouched photos so much better. They look real and they are beautiful. The diamonds don't hurt either.

I really like Laura Marante's haircut...
