LOS ANGELES, CA – The 77th Cannes Film Festival kicked off on May 14 night with a dazzling display of glamour and talent at the Grand Theatre Lumiere.

Hollywood icon Meryl Streep, who was honored with the prestigious Honorary Palme d’Or.

Her attire for the evening boasted a unique touch of Indian craftsmanship, adding an extra layer of allure to the red carpet affair.

Draped in a lustrous satin Dior wrap dress, Streep accessorized with a pair of exquisite earrings crafted by Indian designer Hanut Singh.

An elated Singh posted Streep’s image saying, “It happened with the one and only superstar Meryl Streep, winning her Lifetime Achievement Award @festivaldecannes wearing my pendant earrings! So absolutely thrilled and a pinch me moment.”

For just over ten years Hanut Singh has been quietly and meticulously designing jewelry that at once reveals his modern sensibility, appreciation of history, and obsession with craftsmanship. The personal touch he applies to his creations extends to the way he has presented them exclusively at private trunk shows and by-appointment-only boutiques. From these viewings word-of-mouth buzz has grown into a significant cult following. Diane von Furstenberg, Mary-Kate Olsen, Wendi Deng Murdoch, Beyoncé, Madonna, and Christian Louboutin are just a handful of his discriminating clients, his website said.

The designer is a descendant of the Kapurthala royal family of India who “astonished the world with their style in the first half of the twentieth century,” his site says.

Hanut pulls historical elements together with unique design details resulting in an original collection. For example, he sources antique pearls because he prefers the patina of vintage gems. To add texture to the overall appearance of some pieces Hanut conceived a signature setting combining white gold on the front and yellow gold on the reverse. The blend of elements and immaculate proportions of the jewels give them a totally modern look, his site says.
