Pregnancy + Cannes = torture!
Being seven months’ pregnant and editing the diary page out of Cannes do not exactly go hand in hand as I’m constantly bombarded with news of parties I’ll be too tired to attend, cocktails I won’t be able to drink and sushi canapés I won’t be able to eat.
But as it’s my duty to tell you about the coolest venues in Cannes, I’d better start with the Terrazza Martini at the Plage Gray D’Albion, which is hosting a string of glamorous events during the festival, including a party for Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways (Friday) and a soirée for Nastassja Kinski to celebrate the screening of Roman Polanski’s Tess in Cannes Classics (May 25) — all washed down with some delicious Martini cocktails. Damn it.
On the upside, llife in the Cannes office is going to be a lot easier without the daily hangover.
