The A-list joined Karl Lagerfeld for a glamorous fête in France this week, as Chanel joined forces with 'Vanity Fair' for a dinner on the seafront

A host of stars that included Jessica Chastain, Kylie Minogue, Adrien Brody, Eva Longoria, Lily Allen, Julie Gayet, Gaspard Ulliel and Gael García Bernal joined Karl Lagerfeld at the second, now annual, dinner hosted by French Vanity Fair in collaboration with Chanel. It joines a selection of stylish parties on the Cannes agenda this year.

British singer-songwriter Lily Allen was dressed in blue tweed Chanel Spring 2012 Couture, which she paired with gunmetal metallic pumps. Jessica Chastain kept her look more subtle, donning a Chanel Resort 2014 white tweed dress with pockets. 

Chastain is at the festival for the screening of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby as part of the Un Certain regard selection. “I play Eleanor Rigby — it’s a woman who, when facing grief, decides she needs to reinvent herself and try to find a new life,” said the actress, who has now become a regular at the event.

“It’s crazy because, to be honest, it was only three years ago that I brought Tree of Life here, but it feels like so much has happened since. But it was the beginning, it was my debut in a way to the world as a film actress, so definitely it feels like coming home,” she added.
