Each year, it seems Cannes is as much about fashion as it is film. Celebrities and industry professionals put on their most luxurious wears and head to the red carpet steps. Winnie Harlow went all out, dazzling photographers in a silver dress with an epic long train. Actress Deepika Padukone wore enough colour for everyone in her flamboyant Ashi Studio fuchsia dress. As well as jaw-dropping dresses, women like Doutzen Kroes and Cate Blanchett stepped out in power suits during the festival.

In other news, we celebrated the launch of the new Carrera campaign, Drive Your Story. The new campaign, shot by Jacopo Benassi, talks to and encourages people who have the courage to be themselves and drive their own authentic stories. Four inspirational individuals: Ian Hutchinson, motorbike racer; Anab Mohamed Abdullahi, model; Casey Legler, Olympic swimmer; and Jacopo Benassi, mechanic turned photographer, are shot by Benassi himself and tell their stories of determination and success. The new collection is sporty and fierce, just like the people in the campaign.

Over in Berlin this weekend, the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Europe Regional were being held. B Sunglasses were honoured to sponser Team Tyneside from Reebok Crossfit Tyneside in the games. The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, continuing with the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.The 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Europe Regional features the fittest men, women and teams from northern and central Europe. Only the top 40 men, 40 women and 30 four-person teams are invited to compete at the Europe Regional. Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes faced a variety of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Team Tyneside were doing us proud working hard all weekend.
