What The Cannes Film Fest Really Looks Like: A Photo Diary

Every year, we live out our secret fantasy in our head: We're whisked away and taken on a fantasy trip to Cannes for the legendary film festival. We can think of nothing better than seeing the beautiful beaches of the South of France, attending film events along with the most gorgeous Hollywood stars and strolling down the Promenade de la Croisette.
While this scenario stays tucked away in our minds, Nikki Erwin, handbag designer for the L.A.-based Donatienne, was lucky enough to live out our fantasy vacation with her good jewelry-designer friend, Jennifer Meyer (a.k.a. Tobey Maguire's wife).
Thankfully, Erwin was kind enough to share her amazing trip with us. Click on through to experience her Cannes adventures via the best picture diary. Ever.
