Festival de Cannes regulars
Although she has not yet been awarded any prize in Cannes, like actresses Sienna Miller and Rossy de Palma, César-winner Sophie Marceau has already walked up the Marches Rouges several times, including one memorable when a mischievous wind, playing with her gown, unveiled her lovely chest on the Red Carpet. As for gentlemen, if the actor Jake Gyllenhaal and director Guillermo del Toro have not yet been honored by the Festival de Cannes, the director Xavier Dolan become a darling last year by winning the Jury Prize for Mommy.
Like Jean-Paul Gaultier in 2012, the Malian singer Rokia Traoré doesn’t come from the world of cinema but her albums are mixing modernity and tradition with unusual combinations of instruments such as the balafon, the n’goni, the electric guitar or drums.
