Cannes Film Festival! In fact it is the festival of the desire to appear. It is the desire, once a year, to wear an evening gown in the early afternoon, often in the hot sun. Walking a red carpet… acclaimed by the photographers and the curious who, even if they do not know who you are, want to scream… you want to feel beautiful for a few minutes… want to look popular!
A delusion you enjoy from morning until late at night. At the Cannes’ carnival, without masks or floats, the stars are the attractions, big or small, known or almost unknown. These days, even if you only make it as an extra in a movie, they ask you for an autograph!
Many people walk on the red carpet for any movie. Then they do not even go to the movie theater. They are only there to appear on a movie or a fashion website.
It’s impossible to cross the city – complete chaos! Hundreds of people crowd the entrances of major hotels in the hope of seeing a celebrity. Kisses, kisses, kisses, greetings, hugs and big smiles!
If you are beautiful and famous, Cannes welcomes you and cheers you. If you cannot feel beautiful and recognizable it may be better to stay home to watch TV and dream!
I arrive at my big boat… so many friends are waiting for me… they all feel my absence. I always manage to convey the desire to organize something special. I check who are my boat’s neighbors. These days, the harbor is one of the most important centers of attraction. Every evening, there are great dinners and mega parties. After the parades on the red carpet, the big stars are moving from boat to boat!
You must excuse me but I have to leave, Sharon Stone is just arriving. She is my guest and it is my pleasure to do the honors. Sharon will host an amfAR charity event to raise funds for children affected by AIDS in Africa. What a wonderful woman!
Shower, change clothes and… PARTY!
I LOVE YOU
