The event is primarily inspired by the iconic red carpet steps of the timeless film festival, where guests will arrive in their 1950s French glamour outfits swarmed by the papparazi and red carpet reporters as they enter the venue. The famous La Croissette of the city of Cannes will be recreated at the harbor garden deck of the Sofitel where guests will be reminded of the prominent boulevard in Cannes, France.
