The Cannes Film Festival was hit by heavy rain this year. While this did not stop all the usual celebrity yacht parties, they were not quite what they were last year.
As a result of the heavy rain, Roberto Cavalli, fashion guru and world-class party host, made an exception one night and permitted celebrity guests to come on his luxury yacht with their shoes on. Apparently the decks were seriously marred by stiletto traffic.
I'm sure the glitterati are hoping for better weather next year and some stiletto-free boat parties!
