behind the scenes: Cannes


If you can't get a hotel room during the festival, beg your favorite designer to sleep in a corner behind the gowns. The Elie Saab showroom is one of the many hotel rooms occupied by designers; stuffed with gowns, frills, feathers,  clutches and shoes. Seamstresses are on hand to nip and tuck at the sigh of a star's whim.

Screw sensible shoes - this guy came prepared.


Umbrellas. Never forget an umbrella when you travel to Cannes. When it rains, it pours.
