Right on the heels of The Newport Beach Film Festival, It’s So LA’s™ Kellie Koppel and Mamz’elle Margalette’s Stephanie Audoin created buzz for the upcoming Cannes Film Festival with a pre-Cannes salon tease of the French Rivera at Newport Beach Harbor on the Paradiso yacht celebrating fashion, film, and music.

Coconut Water, while enjoying the fashions of Designer Eloise Lapidus and Richie Williams of Bobo House Fashion, who presented elegant fashion from their collection of front drape leather vests, long and short pants for women, as well as a variety of tank tops. Also onhands were French designers showcasing collections from Jean Paul Gaultier, BoBo House, Eloise Lapidus, Cosmo Queen, Babylone, Jen Mood, and Blue Glue.
There was creative stimuli everywhere to be found, including French Film sneak-peeks. Celebrity DJ’s Christos Kedras and Sonikem were spinning live on the decks, while guests perused and bid on designer and luxury silent auction items. Guests delighted in raffle prizes and giveaways, and took intimate boat rides throughout the harbor, all while being treated to white glove services and pampering in true “Cote Azure” style.
