Cannes 2022: Sharon Stone very noticed in an orange strapless dress to receive an award

Behind the rhinestones and glitter of cinema, the Cannes Film Festival also knows how to reward humanitarian work. This was the case during the Gala of the Better World Fund which was held this Sunday, May 22 at the JW Mariott hotel.

The evening initially rewarded Dominique OuattaraFirst Lady of Côte d’Ivoire and founder of the children’s aid association, Children of Africa. The latter, who appeared in a blue patterned dress, said she was very touched by the gesture. “I am happy that Africa and particularly Côte d’Ivoire are highlighted by the Better World Endowment Fund. I am very touched by this and I hope that it will encourage other initiatives to give a better future to the children of Africa.” she said. The other personality rewarded was none other than the famous actress Sharon Stone , definitely unmissable at Cannes this year, who showed up in a long orange strapless dress to attend the dinner. The two women were seen coming arm in arm with each other to introduce themselves on the photo call (see slideshow).

The organized evening also aimed to raise funds for Children Memorial Health Institute of Warsaw, and help refugees from Ukraine through an exceptional auction of bags and clothes from the Dolce & Gabbana brand. Sharon Stone, this time dressed in a blue suit ensemble, was required to host the sale. We also got to see the star of Basic Instinct pose with one of the buyers (see slideshow). “We hope that the support of the film community will serve the suffering people of Ukraine. It is in Cannes that we can actively serve those in need, I am grateful for this opportunity“said the star.

Finally, the president of Better World Fund, Manuel Collas de la Roche gave a speech on the new humanitarian issues that must be highlighted in future years and recalled the importance of cinema in the battles to be waged. “Culture and cinema in particular have a key role to play in raising awareness of the main humanitarian and sustainability issues of our time Climate change, food waste, carbon footprint and the enormous impact of food on our health are slow poisons that can ruin generations. It’s time to act together and quickly!”
