#Cannes2015: Designer Styling Suites

 The glamour of Cannes is really insurmountable. The amount of stars all vying to wearing the hottest designer couture is unlike any other event, I feel even surpassing the Academy Awards. Inside the Martinez hotel, across the street from the Palais de Festivals and the famous stairs into the theaters, brands have been setting up styling suites. One of the brands that has a beautiful suite in the Hotel Martinez is Elie Saab. The designer has been setting up shop in Cannes to dress celebrities for many years and this year they are giving us a look into the suite. Filled with looks from the designers couture, ready-to-wear, resort, and pre-fall collections past and present; anyone who visits the Elie Saab suite has a luxurious experience ahead of them. One can stop at the Elie Saab suite pick up a gown, a pair of shoes, a handbag, and try any of the Elie Saab fragrances before running to the Palais for the red carpet. This suite will see the likes of Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai (among many others) before this years festival wraps.
 Elie Saab is not the only brand that sets up shop in a suite at the Hotel Martinez. The likes of Roberto Cavalli, Atelier Versace, Valentino, and Marchesa all set up luxurious suites to draw stars and stylists in to pick out gowns to wear on the red carpet. Some of the major PR brands like KCD and Starworks also set up suites and bring in many of their brands to send down the Croisette. Probably the biggest suite, though unconfirmed, in the Hotel Martinez is Chopard. The jewelry brand is one of the festivals main sponsors and most of the stars that walk the red carpet and they set up a luxurious suite to showcase all of their creations to the celebrities. Up on the top floor of the Hotel Martinez L'Oreal Paris sets up shop to do the hair and makeup for all of the L'Oreal Paris spokesmodels that take to the red carpet during the festival to add an added ounce of glamour to the festival.
