Festival de Cannes

Once a year, the film world’s elite descends on the French Riviera for a week of movie mayhem, all-round hedonism and dressing up to the nines. Cannes is the festival to see and be seen at, so naturally those in attendance are expected to pull out all the stops when it comes to outfit choices.

Engrossed in the sci-fi film, Doctor Strange, from the comfort of my hotel bed after a 4-day trek in the Andes, I found myself philosophising about what we really know.
