Bulgari celebrated the 50th anniversary of Cleopatra at the Cannes Film Festival! Following a screening of the epic movie, the famed jewelry brand hosted a reception that showcased the famous collection of jewels star Elizabeth Taylor wore and received during filming (many as gifts from Richard Burton). Jessica Chastain (in Givenchy) was among the guests invited to view the baubles, which included Taylor’s emerald and diamond brooch, snake wrap bracelet, and beautiful hand mirror (shown). The evening concluded with an auction of an exclusive Bulgari design inspired by Taylor to benefit her charity, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Click to see more parties at Cannes.
Bravo, Jessica Chastain! The actress celebrated the 50th anniversary of Cleopatra by watching the classic at a screening during the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, and after the showing, she teamed up with Bulgari to host a private reception where the Bulgari jewels Elizabeth Taylor wore in the film went on display. With that great honor comes great perks, including being able to wear one of the late legend’s pieces. She picked this Bulgari sapphire and diamond masterpiece. The stunning jewel is over 29 inches long. The sugarloaf cabochon at the center of the design is 52.72 carats. It was one of several stunning jewels Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor for her 40th birthday. “I introduced her to beer and she introduced me to Bulgari,” Burton joked years later of his Bulgari shopping trips with Taylor. Gorgeous, don’t you think?
