The rich and famous hang out at Cannes and I am sure you will recognize this trio from Charlie’s Angels. Do you think Cameron Diaz minded that I borrowed her body? (Photo by Peggy Mekemson, body by Cameron, head by Curt)
The Cannes Film Festival is going on now. The town has filled with an army of glitterati and paparazzi. The famous and infamous have gathered to be seen, party, hang out, party, watch movies and party. We were there at a quieter time, thankfully. Still, we couldn’t help but note that monstrous yachts filled the harbor and fire engine red Ferraris served as rent-a-cars. We did the tourist thing, checked out the walk of actors’ handprints, and had our photos taken with cutouts, which was a close as we got to anyone famous.
This is what rent-a-cars look like in Cannes. My guess is that you wouldn’t get the economy rate.
Celebrities John, Frances and Peggy enjoy their moment on the Red Carpet at Cannes
Much fine, and I might add expensive, food will be served up in Cannes this week. Here I feature an appetizing duck a l’orange.
Peggy couldn’t resist trying out Meryl Streep’s hand print for size. Meryl’s fingers are longer.
I took this photo of Sly Stallone’s hand print. Can you sense the testosterone?
We also enjoyed wandering around Cannes and were particularly taken with this building. (Photo by Peggy Mekemson)
Cannes was in the early stages of preparing for Christmas when we visited. I liked the way these decorations reflected an awning below.
Window shopping in Cannes, as you might imagine, was interesting. Take this form fitted chair, for instance… It seemed to go along with the ape lamp above it.
What would Cannes be without yachts? My house would fit in these guys. Damn, maybe my five acres would.
We ended our day in Cannes, France by returning to our own Yacht.
