6 Things That Happened at Cannes This Week

The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival officially got underway this past Wednesday and things are already heating up at the ultra-glam festival. Let’s round-up the highlights–shall we? Here are 5 things that went down at Cannes this past week:

1. The Great Gatsby got the party started. The film got the coveted Opening Ceremony premiere spot and kicked everything off in style.

2. Speaking of… Carey Mulligan schooled everyone on the art of the festival red carpet. Her Cannes choices have seriously been on point thus far.

3. Sofia Coppola’s much anticipated Emma Watson vehicle, The Bling Ring, made it’s debut. The early reviews are in and they’re mixed, but on the positive side.

4. Quelle horreur! A million-dollar jewelry heist went down. Super pricy designer jewelry from Chopard was stolen from a company employee’s room at the Novotel Cannes Montfleury Hotel.

5. Gunshots were heard and jury member Christoph Waltz was rushed off stage. According to The Hollywood Reporter, panic ensued when gunfire was heard before a broadcast of the entertainment program, Le Grand Journal. Everyone is safe, the shots were blanks, and a suspect has been apprehended.

6. Cindy Crawford is 47 and she’s still smokin’ hot.
