At the 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, the Women in Motion dinner hosted by Kering took place on May 21, 2023. This event was attended by several Boucheron ambassadresses, including Alexa Chung, Zhou Dongyu, Rola, and Mila Al Zahrani, as well as friend of the Maison, actress Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu. The evening was captured by renowned photographer Greg Williams, known for his candid and glamorous portraits.
The main highlight of the evening was the acceptance speech of the Women In Motion 2023 award recipient, Michelle Yeoh. Yeoh, who was also the recipient of Kering’s Women In Motion Award for 2023, made powerful remarks about inclusivity for women in cinema. In her speech, she reflected on the barriers women have faced in the industry and encouraged continued advocacy for gender equality. She stated, « For too long, we as women have been left out of rooms and conversations. We have been told the door is closed to us. Well, Virginia Woolf once said, ‘There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.’ Our ideas are endless. Our passion is infinite. And we have come to knock that door down. There is still work to do. We have a long way to go before we can say we are on equal footing. So what I would like to say is keep fighting, keep pushing, keep telling your stories. Your voices are important and your vision is vital »1.
Yeoh was seen wearing several stunning Boucheron jewelry pieces during the event. She wore the Grosgrain necklace, the Vendôme Liseré pendant earrings, the Quatre Radiant Edition ear clip, and the exquisite Pierre Graphique ring. At the Women in Motion dinner, she turned heads with the Col Emeraudes necklace from Boucheron’s Histoire de Style, Art Déco High Jewelry collection. This piece was set with 28 Colombian emeralds and also featured hand-cut diamonds, onyx, and rock crystals2.
Alexa Chung, one of the Boucheron ambassadresses, attended the event in a tailored tuxedo with black trousers and a crisp white shirt. She completed her ensemble with a diamond choker, cherry red lipstick, and slicked-back hair3.
