It's a tough life being an A-list film star so we've been in Cannes all weekend to see just how the stars are keeping up.
Where there are parties there are cocktails and the two new lethal drinks de jour at Cannes this weekend had to be the Cannes Collins and the Boujis Fizz, served at the party co-hosted by London nightclub Boujis and the BFI. But while several A-list revellers under the influence of their new favourite tipple threw off their Louboutin's for a late night dip in the sea, the place to really be seen was the bar of the Hotel du Cap where Mick Jagger held court all night with actor Dennis Hopper and film mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Further down the Croisette, it was all aboard a yacht party to launch the film career of model Julie Orden (who youll recognise from the latest Chanel campaign). She told ELLE all about her first film role, she plays a model - not a huge stretch - in horror flick Catwalk, about a fashion-obsessed serial killer. Sounds a little American Psycho? Nevertheless, it's a film and it's about fashion, so we're in and we're intrigued.
With all the Hollywood parties and French sophistication it was up to Lily Allen to lead the charge for the British girls at Cannes this weekend, Lily was spotted skinny dipping off of a yacht owned by Italian businessman (and Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell's ex) Falvio Briatore. Looks like blondes (well a new uber blonde Lily at any rate) really do have more fun!
