An acknowledged master of the art of offering its clients and friends a wealth of thrilling and unforgettable experiences, the watchmaking-jeweller held its traditional grand soiree in Cannes on the theme of “secrets”. Dressed in black and masks, guests are only treated to their curiosity on the day of the unmissable event.

A secret place, a musical performance by a covert artist, an enigmatic dress code for the unmissable night at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.

After being kept a well-guarded secret, Chopard’s “big party” was hosted at the magnificent Château de la Croix des Gardes on the night of 11 May 2018.

Guests were greeted with a dazzling lineup for the night, complete with the stunning venue offering a panoramic view of the bay of Cannes.

Caroline Scheufele, co-president, has remained true to her pledge to dazzle her guests. One of the grand highlights of the evening was an exclusive performance by Spanish singer, Enrique Iglesias.

Chopard has been the partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998, bringing its own inimitable sparkle to the Festival. In addition to crafting the legendary Palme d’or workshops and trophies, Chopard is also adorning the stars for the traditional “Montée des Marches” ritual with the magnificent Red Carpet Collection. This year, the Maison will be awarding up-and-coming film-making talents with the Trophée Chopard, taking place tonight on the Chopard rooftop at the Martinez Hotel.

The much coveted closing ceremony of the festival will be taking place in the evening of 19th May 2018, the coming Saturday. A testament to the Maison’s commitment to sustainable luxury, the precious distinctions are made by Chopard from Fairmined-certified ethical gold.

Prepare for a wealth of emotions as the official list of awardees are unveiled at the world’s most glamorous movie festival.
