WOMEN ON TOP: Calvin Klein Inc. continues to put women first at the Cannes International Film Festival.
On May 18, the brand is slated to honor actresses Rachel Weisz, Emily Blunt, Isabelle Huppert, Mélanie Laurent and Sienna Miller with a special event held by Independent Filmmaker Project, Calvin Klein Collection and Euphoria Calvin Klein at a private villa on the French Riviera.
Past years’ honorees include Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o and Julianne Moore.
Moore said, “Calvin Klein has been an amazing supporter of the arts, and of women in film in particular,” while Nyong’o noted: “There are very few women in film, so it’s nice to have an event that is just about celebrating those pioneers.”
In addition, CKI and IFP are slated to give away the Euphoria Calvin Klein Spotlight on Women Filmmakers “Live the Dream” grant in support of female directors.
