One famous Hollywood actress, famous for 'that' risque scene, wearing a whopping jewel-encrusted bracelet shaped like a hippopotamus. A bevy of beautiful supermodels. Paris Hilton decked out in more diamonds than even the world's most famous sociailte is accustomed to wearing. This is how you party, de GRISOGONO style.
Every year, the Swiss brand throws a party mid film festival at the exclusive Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. Amongst all the high-octane glamour of Cannes, it's always a highlight. In one corner stood Leonardo di Caprio, supping champagne, surrounded by his customary clique of beautiful ladies, in the other Sharon Stone showing the youngsters how to go about dressing for a party in a backless red dress, split to the thigh. Orchestrating all the fun - and a de GRISOGONO bash is all about the fun - was Fawaz Gruosi, founder of de GRISOGONO and party-thrower extraordinaire.
A de GRISOGONO party is the perfect excuse to slip into some sexy de Grisogono jewels. Paris Hilton, never knowingly underdressed, bagged herself earrings, a ring and a diamond-encrusted watch, while Tamara Ecclestone chose a pair of classic Gocce earrings to match her gold dress. Actress Ornella Mutti opted for a pair of turquoise and aqua earrings that clashed with her dress in a way that only the most confident of ladies could pull off.
It was left to the guest of honour for the night, Sharon Stone, to bring out the big guns though. Alongside her de GRISOGONO High Jewellery earrings and ring - impressive statement pieces on their own - she wore the biggest bangle of the festival by far, which, on closer inspection, bore the perfectly realised face of a hippo, with rubies for eyes, sapphire-set nostrils, pavé diamond teeth and a body composed entirely of brown, grey and white diamonds. Only at a de GRISOGONO party.
