Roberto Cavalli docks in Cannes



You know it's a party when Italian designer Roberto Cavalli comes to town. The king of extravagant ready-to-wear and accessories docked his colouful steamer into the French festival town to celebrate the opening of the label's first boutique in Cannes.

The yacht reportedly cost $40 million to construct, boasting an on deck jacuzzi and accomodations for eight guests. Jennifer Lopez famously rented it out last year for the festival. Italian TV personality and George Clooney's main squeeze, Elisabetta Canalis came on board to shoot a new fashion spread clad in a striking violet and gold Cavalli gown. Last night the likes of Brooke Shields and Janet Jackson partied at a beach shore cocktail event hosted by Cavalli and his wife Eva in honour of the new boutique opening.
