Academy award winning actress Anne Hathaway arrived at the Italian Embassy in Paris sparkling, literally. Adorned in a necklace, bracelet, and ring by Bulgari, the actress was in the French capital to celebrate the new high jewelry collection, Eden, the Garden of Wonder by the Roman house’s creative director Lucia Silvestri. Joining her as faces of the brand were actress Priyanka Chopra and Thai rapper Lisa. Former first lady of France Carla Bruni also appeared at the beginning of the soiree, only to reappear for a surprise appearance on the runway met by cheers by guests.

Bulgari organized a high jewelry show within the Embassy to feature the 140 pieces in the collection. Models dressed in nude-colored dresses, with free-flowing hair appeared like contemporary goddesses adorned with the pieces featuring magnificent gemstones and semi-precious stones.

Afterwards, guests convened in the gardens for a dinner prepared by two-Michelin-starred chefs, French Yannick Alléno and Italian Emanuele Scarello. Sat at tables winding like serpents through grass, under a ceiling dripping with fuchsia flowers, guests enjoyed sea bass and toasted brioche, monkfish with basil and citrus burrata, and veal with capers and fresh lemon, and closed off the evening with a performance by Italian musician Mario Biondi who was joined on-stage by Carla Bruni.

When talk turns to family and juggling everything and everybody, Bruni jumps in, “When children are little, they take up a lot, but they give a lot and then they grow up.” Finishing her friend’s sentence, Khelfa adds, “And then they leave!” Bruni continues, “People always say it must be difficult to be married to a president but no, it wasn’t. It was much more difficult with my children. You have to change your schedule and we are lucky enough not to have to run to a job. We are in show business and have special times. My job is the majority at night. I start writing at 6pm until midnight and now, I work between 10pm and 2am. I am not a morning person.” On her agenda currently are several fashion projects and traveling for her music, along with tending to an olive oil property in the South of France. Khelfa, meanwhile, confesses to being a morning person, currently working on a podcast with Cartier featuring women like Nadine Labaki and Sudanese poet Emi Mahmoud. Together, the women express that the fashion world embraced them and as Bruni comments, “Fashion gave us names.” Khelfa adds, “For me, fashion is freedom and full of joy and life and I really love it.” The industry may have changed since their earliest days modeling, but for both, along with their friendship, it is one of life’s greater constants.
