The star Lorena Baricalla on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival
"Lorena – prima ballerina, singer and actress as well as Master of Ceremonies - moves with the natural grace and elegance of a pedigree performer, in an outfit reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn" An extravaganza of life and cinema for the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, opened by the master of cinema, Woody Allen, in the presence of actresses and actors of enormous calibre such as Jodie Foster, Kendall Jenner, Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe, Julia Roberts and George Clooney. And then the immense exhibition of jewellery, the stars and starlets, and finally the parade of garments that are a show within the show, the real catwalk that crowds the sides of the red carpet during the days of the Festival. Beautiful among the Festival’s beauties, the star Lorena Baricalla stands out: at ease on great stages worldwide, her feet barely seem to touch the red carpet and the famous “montée des marches” that give access to the Palais des Festivals, that emblematic step for many performers and long-standing forbidden dream for the audience. Lorena – prima ballerina, singer and actress as well as Master of Ceremonies - moves with the natural grace and elegance of a pedigree performer, in an outfit reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn: a sumptuous black dress, its train decorated with a cascade of red flowers, created especially for her by the France-based Brazilian stylist Genesia Walle, and refined scarlet stilettos by Duccio Venturi Bottier from the 2016 collection, butterfly-like on the feet of a great star. "I really enjoyed Shane Black’s film The Nice Guys with Russel Crowe and Ryan Goslin -Lorena Baricalla tells us. Watching it with the actors who performed in it adds a unique note to the evening. You feel involved in the plot. For me the days of the Festival are a time of professional appointments and an opportunity to represent our production company Promo Art Monte-Carlo Production at the various events. So the frenetic life of the Cannes festival involves you in a whirlwind that is organised down to the minute in the finest detail. And then, even if I’m used to theatrical clothing, being dressed like a princess on the red carpet in the haute couture of Genesia Walle and Duccio Venturi’s Italian fashion shoes is certainly a unique sensation!"
