Not only is Cartier known for exceptional jewerly but they are also known for exceptional parties.Today’s morning press breakfast at the recently opened Baccarat Hotel was another. The excuse for this gathering was the release of a film which showcases incredible diamond jewels from the mason staring, model and songstress, Karen Elston.
The dreamlike film showcases the the fierily red head dressed in a cherry dress dancing with a group of dapper men in a retro rendition of Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend sung by Ms. Elston. Cartier really turned on the sparkle for this film with exaggerated effects on the diamonds with a stunning result.
Out of respect for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris the event was postponed from its Monday evening original date.The film highlights some of Paris’s iconic sights like the Eiffel Tower and the carousel and Cartier found it distasteful to premiere the film the Monday following the deadly attack.
The event was held at the Baccarat’s bar with its mix of traditional and contemporary art on the walls and a modern French decor. The film played on as press enjoyed cappuccinos and was dazzled by the showcases of actual diamonds from there high jewelry collections which was also on display. The intricate pieces were all in platinum with white diamonds and one of a kind.
