The Cannes Film Festival opens today, and Carine Roitfeld is headed that way. The stylist, who usually pops up at amfAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS gala during the festival, will be back at the event again this year—but this time in a different role.
Roitfeld, who has co-chaired the event in the past, is spearheading a runway show during the gala on May 24, based on her idea of the perfect black wardrobe, WWD reports. Twenty designers have contributed dresses made specifically for the event, including Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, Emilio Pucci, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, and Versace. After the show, the entire collection will be auctioned off as a single lot at the party, which is considered the hottest ticket in Cannes.
