David Bailey & Catherine Deneuve: Elegance at the Palais des Festivals

1966 marked the Cannes Film Festival's 20th anniversary, and from May 5 till May 20 Cannes was the world's "Cinema Capital". "Alfie", "Modesty Blaise", "Doctor Zhivago", and "Un Homme et Une Femme" were among the films that graced the Festival's silver screen. Sophia Loren presided a jury made up by the likes of Vinicius de Moraes and Peter Ustinov.

Famed 60s fashion photographer, David Bailey and his wife at the time, acclaimed French actress, Catherine Deneuve were photographed arriving at the Palais des Festivals to attend a screening. Both Bailey & Deneuve gave a lesson of style and elegance, not only that night, but also when attending other Festival events.
