Last night’s Calvin Klein Collection and euphoria Calvin Klein party was to celebrate women in film. It was however acknowledged during the toast that this year’s Cannes Film Festival features no female directors, prompting representatives from the Independent Film Project to lobby for greater diversity in the industry before honouring Diane Kruger, Ludivine Sagnier, Shailene Woodley, Jessica Chastain, and Naomi Watts.
Naomi was the first celebrity to arrive at the event. She came with Isla Fisher. We were standing on a balcony overlooking the main staircase watching them walk up the steps. I LOVE the Calvin Klein dress Naomi is wearing. If she were taller would you mistake her for Gwyneth Paltrow? I just asked Lorella and here’s how she put it - Gwyneth is much more athletic the way she moves around; Naomi’s quite delicate in person, thinner in person too.
She and Isla were close all night. They both accepted a glass of wine just as they arrived. It was cute to see them together. Just two Aussie girls having a good time. I can totally picture Isla and Sacha Baron Cohen hanging out with Naomi and Liev Schreiber. I cannot picture them hanging out with Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.
