To celebrate Cannes festival Stella Artois have created a film about mythical character ‘Jacques D’Azur’. A chance to revel in good old-fashioned glamour, the film sees them take a look at the scene on the French south coast in the ’60s and the legend surrounding this archetypal playboy figure.
Stella asked me to put together an outfit for his imaginary date to the Cannes Film festival. Being asked to create an outfit takes me right back to my Catwalk Queen days, I love this shiz.
I picked out a vintage dress which has a bit of louche mystery and added playfulness with the Tsumori Chisato sunglasses. Pixie Market stock these ridiculously cool Jeffrey Campbell flatforms, they add a little clunkiness to the outfit and stop it looking like a retro fancy dress costume. Dannijo earrings channel the ’60s vibe and you can trust Barry M to produce a colour-pop lippie in a shade that brings it all up to date.
Goldworm sheath ’60s dress, Blue Velvet Vintage: $135. Dannijo Thordia Earrings: $295. Barry M Lip Paint, ASOS: £4.50. Jeffrey Campbell Patent Platforms, Pixie Market: $145. Tsumori Chisato Cat Sunglasses, Creatures of Comfort: $387.
The next outfit is more of a ‘why don’t I watch you play tennis while I drink cocktails’ kind of affair. Tan-hound that I am I love an all-white outfit because it really shows off that golden, glowing skin damage. Prada’s pleated skirt is near perfect and you can always rely on Banana Republic for a nice bit of jewellery. The Topshop shoes and Marc by Marc bag give a little bit of textural interest.
Stella blazer, the Outnet: £450. Leather lily stone necklace, Banana Republic: £29.50. Prada pleated skirt, Yoox: £135. White woven sandals, Topshop: £32. Marc by Marc Jacobs raffia shoulder bag, My Theresa: £205.
