Moët & Chandon And L’Uomo Vogue Celebrate The Venice Film Festival At Sea

by Yumi Matsuo · August 29, 2012

Last night, Lapo Elkann, Livia Firth, and Franca Sozzani kicked off the 69th Venice International film festival aboard the M/S Dionea yacht. Anchored across from the Piazza San Marco in Venice, guests gathered on Elkann's yacht wearing eco-friendly attire (which included leaving their shoes behind before boarding). As the evening came to an end, guests hopped off the yacht and made their way to Amy Sacco's Bungalow 8 club located in Palazzina Grassi for a pre-opening dance party.
