After the fireworks and the fashion, showgoers ended the Christian Dior resort spectacular at the Cannes pop-up for David Lynch’s Silencio. “It’s my first time in Cannes,” said Zoë Kravitz, who sat front row earlier that night at the presentation in Pierre Cardin’s iconic bubble house. “And I’ve never seen a house like that, it was quite the introduction to the South of France.” The Californian musician and actress took up residence in the DJ booth at the stroke of midnight dressed in a silvery couture dress by the French house.

System magazine editors Elizabeth von Guttman and Alexia Niedzielski were just as wowed by the night’s events. “I’ve actually been to the South of France countless times, but I’ve never been to that house,” said Niedzielski. “Did you know that Pierre Cardin worked with Christian Dior once upon a time?” The 92-year-old design legend was seen roaming the halls of the storied property, but alas there were no sightings of him at the party. Raf Simons, the man of the hour, did make an appearance, though, just as the guests such as Susie Lau and Caroline Issa came flooding in. Given the fantastic collection he showed earlier that evening, he had every reason to dance the night away.
