Purple Magazine Party At Le Baron

Although the The Purple Magazine party at Le Baron may have been lacking in Hollywood types, that didn't make it any less cool. In fact, it made the party even better. Purple caught some of the action:

Can anything as big as Cannes come and go without a performance by Kanye West? The answer is no. He took the stage with Jamie Foxx and Pharrell to play to a crowd that included Jon Hamm and Leonardo Dicaprio.
